Nice reviews. It's almost time for me to make the Christmas cakes for this year, and I think I'll be using the two-star for the soaking this time around.

Default Glass in Photo

Rum Runner, what type of glass do you have next to the Zacapa 23 in the photo accompanying your review? Recommend it for tasting?

jrl915. Sorry for my delay in replying. It's been crazy busy here for me.

The glass is a typical Sherry Copita. I have used this style of glass for tasting fortified wines and spirits for a long time now.

I understand how different vessels can affect the tasting experience. The Copita works for me for most spirits.

There are many tools in the box so to speak and I believe that as long as you build a tasting reference memory using a "Standard" glass you will be well served.

Cheers!

Thanks, Rum Runner. I have taken to the ISO wine tasting glass, and I believe it is very similar.

By the way, my wife and I are considering retiring one day (in 15-20 yrs) in the Caribbean or Latin America. I thought now might be a good time to look into Vieques, but from what I have found, real estate is already pretty high there. How do you believe the prices compare with the BVI and the USVI?
