Default Introduction


I live in Colombia where I own a distillery. We distill in a copper pot still we brought from Germany. We have been in business for 8 years. I love all distillates, run, scotch, gin and fruit brandies. I currently distill exotic fruit brandies, gin, and Agricole Rum.

I look forward to learning and meeting people in this blog.

Hello! I live in Louisiana and have been collecting spirits for about 20 years, which all started with collecting rum from around the world. I joined to ask a few questions about my collection.

Hi all,

New to the site. Yes apparently I like rum. Better taste than vodka or whiskey to me.
Hope to gain some insight about rums and what and why people like them.

Default Intrigued

Thanks for the add. I was sitting and enjoying a rum and coke mixed with my (so far) favorite rum. I've struggled with rum over the years, often reverting back to single malt scotch - until I'm called back. I've found some (Bacardi White?) to be inoffensive, but uninspiring. Others (many Jamaican rums I've tried) had a - not sure how to describe it - Juniper? taste - that was offensive to my pallet. I don't remember where my first taste of Eldorado 12 came from, but it has solidly occupied the position of favorite for a few years now. I tried the 15 - not much different. I tried the 21 year old. Actually did a vertical sampling with a few family members. We all agreed that the 21 was past it's prime - the juniper sneaking in - and not in the same class as the 12 and 15.

It's been well over a hundred bottles of the 12 and I feel like I'm getting in a rut - a lovely rut to be sure, but none the less. I checked a local vendor of fine spirits and also found El Dorado at 25 years - a bit pricey - and a 50 year old offering. I have some fine shotguns that cost me less than that. I'm balking, not so much because it's expensive - but more because we deemed the 21 past it's prime. Yes I know the age designation is only identifying the oldest in the blend, but I'm hoping to get some reviews before I jump.

Searching online, I found something called Hamilton that apparently has a few offerings. Imagine my surprise when I got here and found the home of the Ministry of Rum. Hints of Monte Python in there for sure.

I'd be hard pressed to deviate from my El Dorado, but I'm open to experimentation and suggestions.

Default Greetings from

Hello all! Delighted to be here among lovers of the world's most wonderful spirit. I've had a long and affectionate relationship with rum for decades but find now, in my old age, that I want to take it to the next level and acquire a deeper understanding and appreciation of the delicious stuff. I look forward to the benefit of all of your experiences in the years to come.

Default Greetings!

My name's Jim and i am 34 years of age. I have tried many types of drinks and a small range of products/brands on each one of them... But Rum has always been my favorite! I am one of those "annoying" noobs, because i love the spiced type of Rum most, instead of the well established, mainstream staples. I don't know why, but i have always been fascinated by them. I also tried normal rums, like Matusalem, Havana Club and Varadero, all of those the 15 years old variety. In my locale, spirits vendors don't offer wide ranges like the rest of the world, so my exploration&experimentation urge is usually left with much to be desired.

I found your site by chance, while searching for reviews. I would like to discuss on Rums a bit, because i would like to stock up on good stuff. And with the already limited choices, i wouldn't like a hit or miss gamble. Besides, i am only interested in the best!

Nice to meet you all; please, take good care of me!
