I may be a lot of things but I'm not a misogynist! I love women. It's just the gays I'm less keen on. And blacks.

 Up for this. I also want the golden tot tokens(lot's of them).

 Quorhum 30 turned up yesterday. It's very drinkable. Will bring a hip flask with me to the Fulham game for anyone that wants to try it.

 Yum

i have been conspicuously absent from this thread, mainly because I needed a rum sabbatical. Turns out you can have too much of a good thing.

Back on it in feb

 Try La Hechicera Solera 21(m&s have it).

I normally like the smooth demerara rums. This one isn't, but it's dragging me back again and again. Prunes, expresso and tobacco flavours. Very nice and about £35-40

 I am waiting on a delivery of a Brugal 1888 and a Matusalem 23 gran reserva which reads like nectar from the gods ,going on this review.

Nose: Fresh honey and golden syrup. Crunchy almonds. Cedar wood.

Palate: Creamy and rich, with plenty of fruit joining the sweet, sugary notes.

Finish: Spiced and lasting on the finish. Overall: One to savour and enjoy neat.

 If it can deliver this, i'm in heaven at under £50 a bottle.

  Approve is an understatement. I don't think there's another bottle at the same price that compares. £33 a bottle and it's smooth, rich and leaves an almost peat whisky clean aftertaste.

 If anything proves we are an intelligent species, it's El Dorado rum.

Me and the old man nearly had a catastrophe the other day.

The maid was sent shopping for Tanduay rum and came back empty handed “ non availble” she says,

The driver was then despatched to the next city and 5 botttles duly arrived.

Dry throats averted.

 That sounds interesting!

Very smooth, a bit too sweet. Needs to be in a rum punch. Not bad for a M&S special

So after hauling a colleague’s arse of out a particularly deep puddle of shite, he popped into my office this morning with a bottle of Ron Zacapa sistema 23 solera to say thank you.

classy move
