Getting around the islands can be half the adventure of discovering new rum.

Default Join Me Next Wed./a drink for Haiti

So I have donated to the redcross, and even packed my wife off this morning with all excess food to give to the haitian food drive. There is another way that I think I can support Haiti as well, although it is not totally void of personal pleasure on my part.

Next Wed. Jan. 27th at 8pm EST I will be buying and cracking open a bottle of Barbancourt Reserve Speciale (8yo 5star) and posting live on this thread my impression and notes on it. I'd love it if as many of you join me. I figure this is a haitian rum that many of us can get our hands on and a live tasting might be a fitting tribute to the well wishes and hopes we all have for haiti. It might also in some small way promote a haitian product so that when trade does resume, more product will be purchased, and more money will be flowing into haiti.

I intend to do this regardless, and if you can join me great, if not, no worries.

James

Sounds like fun, I'll mark that down and try to join in as I just purchased a bottle of that myself.

I chose the bottle for the same reason, I thought people would think it was silly but I figured if I was going to buy a bottle it might as well be a Haitian rum to show support.

What a great idea RonJames.

I'm going to have to try to get some Barbancourt Reserve Speciale, and join in. Maybe I'll tie this thread to a write up on my blog linking to the thread and to other great articles about Haiti and the need for our support.

Sounds like fun - I am will join in for sure...unless I am called to fly out to provide medical support on the ground there. Presently on a waiting list for flights...but this is good news I guess, providing me time to find a a bottle of 8yr if there is still one available.

RonJames,

I'm in on this noble gesture. I'll crack a bottle of 15 yr old with and post live. Like you I too have been busy with drumming up support for Haiti. My Radio stations did a massive coins for Haiti drive just yesterday with The Bank of Nova Scotia.

Got the 3 star, 5 star, and 15 year all lined up and ready to go. Haven't done them together as a flight since early last year.

Arctic if you were my neighbor I'd have a bottle on your door.
Mistahunter, its on big guy
Unkle, if you get pulled away, we will be having a drink too you!
Rumpleteazer, its time to reopen that 5 star...again
Gecko, as I was writing this I new atleast one cat would be down for this, and that was you my friend.

I'll be drinking the 5 star but if you have any barbancourt (or clairin, i wont tell) then it'll do. I've got to get my bottle of 5 star this weekend.
