That's the one.


Seems like a good price. And Total Wine carries it. I will pick some up.


Not sure if I have that precise one, but I have enjoyed all the Plantation Rums. First had them a number of years ago at the Rum Bar in Key West. Bahama Bob knows his sh*t

Binny's carries it locally for about $45, although I've seen it for less online.

So I went and bought a bottle of the Plantation XO and tried some on Saturday night. Really, really, really good. What an aroma.

Thanks for the recommendation. This is the best rum I have ever had.


Had some at the Rum Bar on Friday. Really excellent

I know that some people look down on JW Blue, but I had it a couple years ago, and while I am not a big Scotch drinker, I thought it was really quite good.

Of course, maybe since I am not a big Scotch drinker, I don't really know what I am talking about...

wow... impressive bottle. one i would LOVE to try. nicely done.


yes, lovely bottle i found in a nearby shop, along with two other funny musically named whisky fair bottles, Longmorn "walking on the moon" and Strathisla "here come the rain again"
I'm (i was) not even a particular fan of Caol Ila, but this one, nomen est omen, is fascinating. Even though cask strength at 56.6%vol , this doesn't need a single drop of water. Smoky yet very balanced.
