A Couple More Shameful Stores…

I am trying not to post these as much… some people complain, so my new rule is I am only doing it if someone at the store is offensive.  If they say something like “I know it’s high, but we only have one…”  or if they try to negotiate…. but if they come at me with “this is extremely rare and someone will pay it” or something along those lines… Some of the people at the store are so offensive and obnoxious that I just feel the need to vent.  There are dozens of stores that have bad prices that I haven’t posted about, but at least their staff were nicer.

Portside Liquors in Cape Cod, 590 MacArthur Blvd, Pocasset, MA 02559…. $1200 for Lot B?  Seriously guys?  The rest of the store is pretty bad as well… definitely avoid it.

 

Wine Wisdow in Manhattan, 21 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036… Michter’s 10 for $399.99?  That’s more than double secondary… get real!

 

 

 

 

 

Rum Curious: Foursquare 2006

After reading Fred’s book I bought this overseas and I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much I paid. Go out and buy Fred’s book, it’s great and will give you so much info you can’t find online. I’ll leave the details of this to Fred’s book on page 108-109. Needless to say Foursquare is an unbelievable producer of great rums.

Amazing Rum smell. Coconut, anise, white floral notes, peach pits, orange peel, rose water.

Amazing mouthfeel. Moderate heat, so much lower than expected for this Proof level. Finish just goes on and on.

Fred has this at 100 points, doesn’t score quite that high for me but it is the best Rum I’ve ever had. Hard for me to grade this as I’m much more a bourbon fan–but it is pretty epic. 98/100.
