Count I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am about the server. Your site is awesome and I hope it comes back up. Frequently when my wife would ask me "what do you want the basement to look like?" I would show her your site and the painting of the man and woman at the bar. Im hoping for a swift return

"Refined Vices - Your Bright Side of the Week"

All the Maui rum reviews are available on the site as of yesterday: Click.

In my opinion the Platinum and the Gold are the best of that range. I don't know what to think of the Dark and the Gold Reserve.

By now everyone has probably heard of Ron de Jeremy, which is now available for preorder and they have also launched a new interactive website. A little known fact about Ron de Jeremy is that the creators are actually Finnish!

I wrote a little story about it on RV: http://www.refinedvices.com/ron-de-jeremy

I've also been participating in the Melbourne Rum Clubs for the past couple of months and have begun writing short recaps: http://www.refinedvices.com/melbourne-rum-club-2011

Next one will be about the Goslings Rum Club.

Long time no rum reviews, a lot of rum clubs however. Latest review in is the MGXO, unfortunately I didn't have the old bottle with me to do a comparison.

A while ago I also had the pleasure to meet Lorena Vasquez from Zacapa at Melbournes Black Pearl.

Another one was an Appleton sponsored Tiki Exhibition.

Stay tuned for more...

This month we're giving away a signed bottle of Ron de Jeremy rum for our Australian readers!

Yes! That's right we are giving away a bottle of Ron de Jeremy rum signed by Ron Jeremy himself during his recent visit to OZ!


Refined Vices had the pleasure to cruise around Sydney in his stretch hummer partying it up with Ron and his crew and we even managed to acquire one of these signed bottles that Ron wanted to give away in our competition for Australian Ron lovers!

Silvio, any idea where this is being sold or which countries get what kind of distribution?
