@YakLord Please report back on the results of your rum tasting.
@fiddich1980 Saint Catherine 14yr Cask Strength Single Cask (Jamaica, so also Worthy Park), and Diamond 17yr Column Still Cask Strength Single Cask (Guyana, so also Demerara Distillers Ltd.)

@YakLord a really solid and varied line-up.
@MRick Will do!
@cricklewood It certainly was! Interesting as it was primarily whisky drinkers with little exposure to rum. The Barbancourt was definitely the lightest of the rums, and a good one to start with. It's just under $50 CAD, and had people wondering why they'd been drinking other rums, and things improved from there.
The Foursquare Premise was complex, but still enjoyable. Of the two Worthy Park rums, the V&M was the better of the two, but the Single Estate Reserve was still quite good. The two DDL rums were both fantastic, but hard to do a direct comparison because they came off of different stills.

@YakLord Thanks for the comment. I saw $50 CAD and though "Does the LCBO carry that? I wonder where he got it"? A quick LCBO rum search didn't turn up any Barbancourt or Worthy Park...BUT a name search did show those rums. I ordered one of each.

@OdysseusUnbound Their site is so broken when it come to searches...
The SAQ has the full Barbancourt lineup ( minus the 15 year-old), and the 8 year-old is slightly cheaper in Quebec, but not much.
Black Tot Rum a blend of Carribean rums. The disclosure of the blend components can be found a their website. It is a blend where each component contributes to the overall quality of the experience.

Two excellent blended rums:
The 50th is a very well executed Caribbean blend.
The 2021 is a flavour trip in both flavour profile and textual mouth feel.
