Just mixed one with raw agave syrup and fresh lime. My little switch in the typical recipe because I happen to have agave on hand. I used Flor de Cana 4 yr extra dry for the first time, usually I use Appleton White. What a difference. To me the Flor de Cana is much smoother and the flavor profile is very different. I also have a bottle of Oronoco that I picked up and will try that next although the flavor profile of that is extremely different than the FLor de Cana or Appleton.

Default the new (at least for me) Banks 5

Picked up a bottle of Banks 5 the other day and the first thing I did with it of course is make a Daiquiri... outstanding! I've used all sorts of rum in Daiquiris and whereas they are all enjoyable (if you're using good rum) I agree with Ed that the best are made with white rums. My fave up until now has been with 10 Cane but I think that the Banks is making the best I've ever had. (I did a repeat performance the next day to verify findings.) I like em with 2oz rum, 1 oz lime j, 1/4 oz Luxardo M, 1/4 oz SS... and sometimes grapefruit J. I've never tried the ED 3.. so I guess that's next. More research to steal a quote.

I has a most enjoyable daiquiri last night. 1 1/2 ounces of Koloa White , 1/2 Lime (fresh squeezed), and 3/8 ounce of simple syrup.

It was so good I had another. I am finding that this white rum from Hawaii is ridiculously good especially as it is fresh from the still with no aging and the company has only been making rum for about a year.

Joe, you could mix that stuff with Drano and it would still be good!
