Ron Zacapa 23 Sistema Solera Rum
Aged Rum — GuatemalaTastedWithout any ice it’s a bit hot and the ex-bourbon barrel really shows it’s teeth. Luckily a big rock found it’s way into my glass and now I taste apricots and chocolate. Thankful for those frisky ice cubes getting into everything.

Plantation Barbados 5 Year Rum
Aged Rum — BarbadosTastedTruly unbeatable for the price! A go-to intro sipper that easily earns a permanent spot in the rotation. Getting emotional just thinking about how much I love this rum 🥲
Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Rum
Aged Rum — JamaicaTastedUnderwhelming sipper. I found it to be thin compared to other favorites and it has a kind of tap-watery finish that I’ve found in other Jamaican rums. Not bad in a cocktail. Meh.
Amaro — ItalyTastedThe best amaro in my humble opinion and a ride or die Prosecco companion. Tryna get buried with a few bottles of this...
Hennessy VS Cognac
Cognac — Cognac, FranceTastedA proper New Year’s Eve beverage. Starts off strong with flavors of vanilla, butter, and clove. Hennything is possible tonight.
Jameson Black Barrel
Blended — IrelandTastedIt’s like Jameson but better
Nut Liqueurs — Washington, USATastedAn interesting nocino. I get an almost overwhelming amount of umami on the nose and palate. Soy sauce, cinnamon, clove, maple- it’s not.... bad? I think?
Ron Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva Rum
Aged Rum — VenezuelaTastedDon’t put ice in this- instead put in all of your unmet expectations from past lovers, former jobs, parents.... because this won’t let you down.
Bacoo 5 Year
Aged Rum — Dominican Republic, Dominican RepublicTastedI enjoyed this with a bottle of coke on the side. Good winter evening sipper and goes splendidly with the fried chicken/waffle fries combo (pro tip: ask for the bbq sauce)Sneaky tiki
