rum is strange drink .some people love certain ones and others cant understand why. There are flavors in some rums that i cant stand on their own but i love in a certain rum . craziness craziness.barell matters and age. sugar cane or molasses . its all deep

Was introduced to papa's pilar last week.  Highly recommend.

Light or dark and what's the taste/flavor? If I recall right its $30ish a bottle?

That one was $95 and the taste is good. The Foursquare exceptional cask bottles are more akin to a good sipping Whisky than any other rum I know. Honestly, I'm not good with tasting notes, so here's what Google says:

"Notes of allspice, dates, vanilla bean, coconut and fried dough"

eeeek... a little too expensive for me . I try to max out under $50, but maybe I'll splurge for a once a year celebration. 

 

Thanks for the info though

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.  It should cost less than the MMPS and not a lot more than the other bourbons you drink (tip of the cap to a fellow EWSB fan), and it's damn good.

Kinda forgot.....until I didn’t.

I’ve had a couple bottles of this, and really enjoy it neat.

Nothing like having a conversation with a rummy.  The only thing better is a rum-soaked fishing guide.

This stuff is legit, esp. considering it's under $40.  I get a good amount of brown sugar, vanilla, and some coconut, with a little burnt sugar note at the end.  Sweet, but not as sweet as the Diplomatico RE.  A good sipper and you could probably use it for blending as well.

How does it compare to the El Dorado 15 (which is one of my favorites)?

I haven't had the 15.  Based on the 12 and your rec, I will have to try it soon.
