I'm definitely with all of you on the FDC line of rums. Quality Quality Quality

queer I was editing a post and it showed up as a new post. I tried to delete it but had to do this instead

Your time to edit a post is limited. I think that may have been the confusion.

Wolf, I think your love of the FDC 7 is very similar to mine of the Havana Club Anejo 7yr. It's one of those bottles that is just right for me. Mixed, straight up, hot day, cold day, it doesn't matter. I can enjoy the HC 7yr anytime and I always have a bottle around. I don't think it's in the same class as rums like Mout Gay XO, or the Gosling's Family reserve I have... But it is one of my favorites nonetheless.

I recently tried the FDC 7 too. I did quite like It. I promptly followed it up with a bottle of the FDC 12 year and that I thought was a really good rum. Both will very likely make it into my collection again.

Nice rating system too.

Great rums, and great reviews. Its great seeing a different approach at a rating system.
Rum is the answer. What was the question?

Great system wolf!

I'd write up my system for everyone but it's pretty much, "Um, this is like, totally a 4ish somethingorother. Yeah, that sounds good."

I keep thinking about changing things up to a much better system, like yours, but then anyone who's read my site knows that I'm not all that in to effort or math.
