Cheers GB!  The good news is that we seem to have an (unopened) bottle of the spiced version too lou_lol.

 

This might give the impression of an extensive alcohol cellar with lots tucked away.  Sadly, home is a modest flat but the rum was being kept at the back of a packed understairs cupboard.   The only other bottle I found there is Cointreau...

Fifth day

Mezan Jamaican XO rum. Blimey this stuff is morish. Just as well they only give you 30ml, otherwise tomorrow would be a duvet day.

Week 1 done.

todays instalment is Trois Riviers Cuvee de l’ocean Rhum agricole.

Now I would be lying if I said that neat this was a good idea. Off to find some cola.

CB Saint posted this 07 December 2017

That hasn’t helped. There is just more of it to drink now. lou_sad

I am not a fan of agricole rums. Another fine idea the French fucked up.

Last night affair was Sailor Jerry. To be honest I was a bit “meh” about that, however anything was better than that Agricole shite

One to two day moratorium called. At the firm piss up tonight and unlikely to want to face booze tomorrow, so will probably be playing catching up on Monday.

For GB's benefit:  I cracked open the Spiced St Lucia Chairman's Reserve tonight.  Being shittily cold outside I could not be arsed to head out again and buy the recommended mixers.  So instead I served it with:

- juice of a lime

- ginger ale

- a dash of Angostura bitters

- plenty of ice

and I am pleased to say that I am on my second one as I type lou_lol

In for a penny....

i have opened yesterday’s as well

Woods 100 Old navy rum. Eek.

now my vague memories of Lambs is not great, however this has exceeded my particularly low expectation. Real liquorice notes to this.

So Tonight I am on Diplimatico Reserva Exclusiva

i think I preferred the less exclusive version of this. It is a bit too liqueur like.
