5 saint rum from Norristown distillery just outside Philly. Maple/bourbon flavor. Great on 1 ice cube in my 2A glass, watching the voice with my Puerto Rican queen. Gonna knock out a leather wallet tomorrow.
So there I was on the mountain, post ski, sipping some Smooth Ambler Old Scout and my sister in law said she liked vodka or tequila. Specially vodka because it has no flavor. And so I went into how Tequila as a blanco is meant to have tons of flavors. And then you get to Reposado and Anejos with barrel impact changing the spirit to create something tasty when sipped neat. She likes vodka for the cocktails I guess.
But dear friends...we can make great cocktails with bourbon and aged rums. Neutral spirits are for hand sanitizer!
