This week’s Thursday Drink Night (or TDN to us cool cats) is centered around a magical rum from the birthplace of rum: Barbados.1 I speak of Mount Gay Rum, Extra Old.
RumDood has a better and more informative post over at his digs, but to be brief: Mount Gay Rum is a perfect example of Bajan rum: Rich without being overbearing, smooth without being insipid. You can even taste the ocean breeze wafting over the coral containers they use in the distillation process. It’s heavenly. And the Extra Old which we’ll be mixing with? It’s almost a shame to mix it.
But mix it we will – We’ll just have to be sure to give it the respect it deserves.
Join us this Thursday, April 9 @ 4pm PDT. We usually go on until the wee hours of the night. Point your browser over to the Mixoloseum Bar for the fun! See you there!
- or so the Bajans claim. I like to believe them. [↩]
