You have it EXACTLY right, congrats!


Sadly, way too many rum drinkers believe that because the raw material for rum spirits is either sugar cane, sugar, sugar syrup, molasses or other products of ...

Here's my short list:

1. Bajan: MGXO or Seales Ten\
2. Jamaican: Appleton Extra
3. Cane Juice: any Barbancourt, buy all three, the white, the 3-star and the 5-star

I would highly recommend that you buy the Barbancourt White, the 3 Star (4 yrs. old) and the 5 Star (8 years). The beauty of this is that the Barbancourt unaltered, world class cane juice rums are ...

Unfortunately those "standards" (a) were only suggested by moi and (b) were way, way, WAY before the sugar testing program happened.

With that in mind you can forget about the ED12, as - ...

A good question. It's a matter of taste and previous experience. Unfortunately rogue rum is full of fraud and cheating, with unlabeled additives and flavorings that have nothing to with reality or ...

Thanks... will add to the Master Sugar List...

I love the herbal/caney sense of them - and a ti'punch is well worth the effo ...
