The cast: Sky / Staff / Myself
A half sequel to my Czech drinks post. Same team. Different rum.
11 October – HCM gig
Started off on cocktails we don’t remember the names of. They were nice. Round two cocktails also nice. Round three involved a not great / bad coconut cocktail and:
Dead Mans Fingers – Too strong at first, needs to lots of coke to be very drinkable. Strong.
Lemonade the crocodile – A good dog. So cute.
Back on Dead Mans Fingers because I know I like it. Cans of Red Stripe are the only beer they sell. Nice and light.
Old J spiced – Has an over-proof variant we need to try, so nice, aftertaste reminds me of B&Js birthday cake ice cream.
Burning Barn – Way too smoky.
Havana 7 – Very drinkable, sweet, like medicine.
Lychee juice – Rubicon always a solid. Fruit juice? Really?
Mango juice – Taste so much smoother than the morrisons own i have at home.
It’s been forever and I’m alone. Old J Spiced is still good when sober. It’s the sweetest spiced rum [they] sell. Lemonade the Crocodile is also still good. The best. Such a sweety.
Barti Duu – Another spiced rum discribed as having a marmalade taste but it’s not oranges it’s seaweed? It’s made in Wales? I liked it well enough.
Also found out this trip that they only do their house rums as singles. If you want something of the shelves you have to have a double. So thats… a thing.
