I have a Montebello that is Hor's d' Age. I know it is at least 3 years old, but I wish I knew if it was older. I have Depaz Blue Cane Amber. I think I will try the blend using the Montebello I have with La Favorite and Neisson white agricoles, then the Depaz amber. I have to try this blended Ti Punch since you referred to it as heaven............

Just remember that it is heaven in MY mouth..so I would start with a small punch.. What I like so much about it is that little extra adding of the Montebello gives this VERY grassy/floral aftertaste that Montebello has.
Its best when you add a bit less of the Montebello than the others.Let me know how you like it..;-)

I will soon try it with La Cabresse and the other agricoles when they arrive..agricole PARTY!!!

My Depaz banana/vanilla/cinnamon/ spice has become so nice and mellow now that it can be sipped neat..

Well, I hope it will be heaven in mine also. Since you have a love of agricole as I do, I can take your word for it and try this interesting blended Ti Punch.

Also, as a side note, since this is the essentials thread, I would have to say the ritual of making a Ti Punch is as important to me as the ritual of lighting a cigar.
Both of these can affect the flavor.

Put the sugar or the syrup in the glass..
Cut a piece of your lime and press the juice (or leave in the piece of lime unpressed)
Add the rum..and stir..slowly and with love.. in a graceful manner, with delight..
Breath in the fragrances and let them transport you to warmer places...
Now your punch is ready! all to do now is sip it slowly..

Thanks for pointing that out, I believe that oversight has been corrected.

I will switch to the Agriocole forum for this comment, since this is the essentials thread. It has to do with a Ti Punch.

My thread I make the rules! lol just kidding course!

If the concept of Ti-Punch &/or how to make one is *essential* then fire away here!

Commentary regarding the number of proverbial pairs of shoes Ed has might be placed elsewhere, unless of course we can establish those having some essence as well.

While I can't tell you exactly how long Montebello Hor's d' Age has been aged but my educated guess is that it is a blend of rums at least 6 years old. Unfortunately, you won't be finding Montebello rum in the US any time in the near future since the name Montebello is owned by someone else in the US.

Finally got bored and put up some photos of other things I find necessities.

Below:

This is basic "bulk bin" Demerera sugar. I use a lot of this not just for rum experimental purposes. This particular sugar has a very strong aroma and is quite flavorful. I've had some others (like Whole Foods' "365є" product) that was good but compared to the cheap bulk bin, was flat. The obvious advantage is the bulk bin is $1.30 per lb as opposed to $2.50 - $5 per lb for pre-packaged:



Marshall's Farm Honey. This is what I guess you would call a boutique honey producer / bottler. The brand is pretty well known (so is the what I'd describe as steep prices their products command, by comparison). I do regularly purchase the coconut honey featured below:


This is a blackberry honey. Like the coconut honey, this has interesting flavors but they disappear against heavy mixes. Best in light simple usage or else as a compliment rather than a pronounced featured nuance:

These are jars I use primarily to store refrigerated syrups. Nothing special about them necessarily. Mainly the convenience for me is having set them aside for a specified purpose, they are easy to identify (as syrups) sometimes I'm not 100% sure which syrup without investigation:


Not that anyone cares, lol, but I'll attach some more of the useless crap I incorporate later. It appears there is a 4 image limit per post.
