El Dorado rum cream was on my request list, but I received ED Dark Superior rum instead. I really like ED 12 and 15 (I don't drink ED21 enough to have an opinion) but by Gawd this stuff is bad. Strictly mixer material. Really bad rum with lots of caramel. It's the cheapest rum around here, for a reason.
Got to indulge in some ideas that have been brewing since the weekend:
-a sazerac made with equal parts rye and rum. I used Sazerac Rye and Plantation Guadeloupe 1998. a winner!
-a rum old fashioned made with Sea Wynde rum. another winner!
I've been meaning to get more involved with the Sea Wynde. It's a fantastic rum - a blend of pot still Jamaican and Guyana aged rums. I've left the bottle
on the counter with my current faves. It deserves attention!
Rum will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no rum!
