Well, we can skip their Dictator, err, President. Unless of course Spain's leader is there to once again tell him to "shut up"!

Yeah, I thought of that, but the rum's fine!

There is so much mystery surrounding two rums from the Dominican Republic, that they would be the very first on my list.

VIZCAYA
MATUSALEM

Of those mysterious Dominican rums! Vizcaya's flavor profile is such a mystery!

What is so mysterious? Cinnamon, vanilla, and caramel. But very nicely done.

I'll do some experiments to confirm my ideas. But the ingredients recombine, interacting with each other, and can create interesting results.

But I feel that we would be in error to ask Viscaya to reveal too much. They are very nice folks and I like what they are doing.

I love Vizcaya's taste profile.
I'm more curious about the mystery surrounding the companies themselves.

I've never seen mention of Vizcaya's ownership or where the spirit is distilled in the DR. The same can be said for Matusalem
