It all depends on the type of day I had at the office. I am partial to Venezuelan rums and really enjoy the Diplomatico, Pompero and my current favorite is Ron Ocumare Anjeo but I have not been able to locate it anywhere after I bought the last 7 bottles that planet of wine had.....

I hope so I know I used to get it from winechateau, pop's wine and spirits and planet of wine and all of them have been out of stock for several months. I noticed that winechateau and pops have removed it from their websites....let me know if you end up getting yours order in.

Just picked up two bottles of Occumare Anejo Especial. I'm wondering if its the same thing as the Occumare Anejo. I had a bottle a while ago. It was good, but I thought of it as an afternoon rum due to the Guarana. It adds a bit of a fruity flavour and quite the caffeine kick, so its only for when i don't plan to sleep soon.

My bottles of Ocumare do not have Guarana in them. The only rum that I have had that had Guarana in it was Cohete Gold from Panama which I found to be decent as well. My bottle of white Ocumare has the Especial label but not my Anejo bottle.....you may have yet another Ocumare rum I will need to hunt down and try

P.I.N.K. will be releasing a guarana and caffeine infused white rum late in 2008/early 2009. Not sure how its going to fare, its vodka is over-priced and not that good, they rely solely on marketing themselves as "What the stars drink".

I finally had the chance to taste the Diplomatico, thanks to a friendly bartender at Rumba in Boston.

This is one of the best sippers I have ever enjoyed. I did not find it overly sweet, like so many other rums being marketed today. I thought the sweet note was well in balance with all of the other flavors and spices. What really intruiged me was the overall intensity of the flavors, and the peppery note sitting on top of everything else.

Probably a bit too much for the novice rum drinker, but definitely should be a fun experience for anyone already hooked on rum. And one I hope to repeat over and over again.

That wonderful Diplomatico experience is repeated over and over here rather more times than is healthy!
