El Dorado 5 year Guyana Rum Demerara

This is a great rum for cocktails and casual sipping. The Demerara molasses gives a bit of extra body to a very fairly priced bottle. I’d recommend using this for a delightful winter-time Daiquiri. The 5 years spent in Bourbon barrels gives a kiss of coconut and vanilla, but doesn’t leave the rum tasting tannic or overly oaky. John Rankin

Foursquare Empery Rum 750ml

Wow! Talk about intensity. 14 years old, with an average of 4 years spent in high quality ex-sherry casks, this has a monster of a nose, incorporating everything from sherry, dark chocolate, walnuts, taffy, salted caramel, honey, dried orange peel, and intense oak spice. The palate is incredibly thick, rich, and oily, and absolutely delivers on all the promise of the nose. Chewy tannins and bold flavors lead to an insanely long finish. Quite similar to the "Patrimonio" released a few years ago in collaboration with Velier, but only available in Europe. Oskar Kostecki

Foursquare Probitas Rum 750ml

A collaboration between two of the best rum distilleries in the world, Foursquare and Hampden Estate in Jamaica, Probitas is made of three components: a 2-year-aged Foursquare rum distilled on Coffey still, an unaged Foursquare Coffey still, and an unaged Hampden Estate pot-distilled rum. Opening with notes of creamy vanilla  and citrus on the nose, from the first sip this is rich and complex, incorporating the best of what both producers have to offer, with just enough funk from the Hampden distillate to make this very engaging. Tropical fruit, banana custard, notes of molasses and sugarcane are all present on the thick and oily palate. Sipping it neat isn't a problem, but cocktails is where this rum really shines. Will make the perfect Daiquiri! Oskar Kostecki

Habitation Velier Forsyths WP 502 57% (PRE - Arrives Fri. Oct 12

A very aromatic white molasses-based rum, distilled on the Forsyth double-retort pot still at Worthy Park distillery. By isolating particular yeast strains and implementing an incredibly long (3 weeks!) fermentation, this particular mark of Worthy Park is incredibly effusive, clocking in at very high congener (a chemical constituent which gives aromas) level. Rich and quite oily on the palate, this rum shows beautiful aromas of citrus fruit, lime zest, banana, vanilla, and a hint of the classic Jamaican petrol funk. Great on its own, I can't wait to see what it does in a daiquiri. Oh my, the very idea has chills running down my spine. Oskar Kostecki

Habitation Velier Last Ward 2009 64% (PRE - Arrives Fri. Oct 12

Back in 2014 I went to a blending seminar for Mount Gay. We were presented with various marks of rum, both from column stills and pot stills, and asked to approximate the blend for the new Mount Gay Black Barrel, which was just released in the US market. It was my first time tasting the difference between pot and column still rum and I was astounded. The depth of flavor and exuberance extracted by the pot still was amazing, and the column still distillate was, by comparison, muted, lacking discernible flavor, and quite boring. I proceeded to construct a blend of mostly pot still Mount Gay (all I really wanted to drink), adding a tiny bit of the column still distillate, and duly failed the assignment. I was dismayed to learn that the "proper" blend should have been the other way around, mostly dull column-distilled rum, and a small proportion of pot still to give some flavor. I'm very happy I finally have the chance to drink some pure pot-distilled Mount Gay!

Mount Gay is the oldest commercial rum distillery in the world, and has been in operation since at least 1703. Since the early 1900s it has been owned by the Ward family, though the commercial rights to Mount Gay rum have been owned by Remy Cointreau since 1989. The last owner-distiller at Mount Gay, Frank Ward, passed away a few years ago, and this bottle has been named as a tribute to him. It is an incredible distillate, exploding with flavors of dried fruit, figs, apricots, baking spices, caramel and cocoa. Fruit-forward and quite lush, it drinks incredibly well at the full proof of 64% ABV. A beauty. Oskar Kostecki

Habitation Velier Worthy Park 2007 59% (PRE - Arrives Fri. Oct 12

The 2007 Worthy Park takes everything the 2005 has and magnifies it. Rich and full-bodied, this is a tremendous rum, almost overloading the senses. Waves of leather, vanilla, caramel, petrol, banana, overripe pineapple, and apricot wash over the nose and palate. Bottled at 59%, you might want to reach for a small ice cube, but at the same time, diluting any of the flavors of this powerhouse would be such a shame. Oskar Kostecki

Hampden Estate Pure Single Jamaican Rum 46%

Rested in barrel for seven years in the tropical climate of Trelawny Parish in Jamaica, this is the first official distillery bottling of aged Hampden Rum, and we couldn't be more pleased to see it. The nose is a medley of tropical fruit and savory, slightly vegetal notes. The signature "funkiness", or hogo (a term adopted from the French haut goût, or high taste, used to describe the je ne sais quoi bold character and aromatic mélange of high ester rums) apparent in all Hampden distillates is front and center. The palate is assertive, with more pronounced savory and vegetal character, intermingling with notes of coconut, charcoal, roasted meat, rubber (in the best possible way) and slightly decaying pineapple and banana.

Rum Fire Hampden Estate Jamaican Overpr 63% ABV

Our friends over at a fellow retailer sometimes just put "!!!!!!!!!" in product descriptions, and I'm tempted to copy them on this one, as there are almost no words to describe Rum Fire. Clocking in at a huge ester level (over 500 ppm) and bottled at 63%, it might rip your face off and kick you in the privates, but you know, you just might like it. Untamed and bombastic, this is funky rum at its finest, guaranteed to take you on a journey. A hate it or love it scenario. An angel-demon from bygone days shredding sweet and funky heavy wattage straight to your soul. I can't help myself, I'm utterly in love. Oskar Kostecki

Wigle Landlocked Spiced (like spiced rum) 750

In the not too distant past, spiced rum was a spirit to avoid at all costs. Producers took an already sweet product (rum,) added artificial vanilla and citrus flavors, cinnamon, and then even more sugar to create a beverage made to appeal to the sweet tooth of an undergraduate student. We now have choices of spiced rum that are actually delicious and actually spicy. Wigle’s entry starts with a distillate of buckwheat honey – a tribute to the local grain known for its earthy, woodsy flavor. Next, a slew of ingredients are infused into spirit. Wigle uses vanilla bean, roasted orange peel, cocoa nibs, and cinnamon for a drink that is aromatically very complex, and downright spicy. This peppery kick makes the spirit an ideal partner for ginger beer, or a feisty member of a punch bowl. John Rankin
