Found 10th Apr 2015
Tesco are selling their Bacardi White, Gold, Red and Black varieties of rum for £16 per 70cl bottle. Asda has the Negra for £24 and the Fuego for £20.50. If you were thinking of experimenting with a new flavour then this is a great price. I bought the Black. I nearly bought this on Amazon last week for £19.89 + postage. Had already read some good reviews. I will be trying it tomorrow. Online and in-store. Offer ends 21/04/15.

Seen it last weekend in Tesco though still holding off. It'll come down cheaper again once Asda and the rest bring it down. Just like the Oak Heart 1st few weeks it was in store for stupid price so when they place on offer everyone will buy due to the "massive saving". By the way how was the black normally drink Lamb's or Ct.Morgans dark rum?

I'm planning a rum tasting night on Saturday. I've just bought 4 new bottles of rum so setting up private tasting session for myself. 3 different aged Brugals and the Angustura 1919 from Sainsbury's offer last week. I normally drink spiced rum so I'm curious if I'll like the darker rum.

Couldn't get to a waitrose for the Angustura, would be interested to hear your verdict...

Lovely stuff the Angostura.
Even better though is Ron Zacappa, or the El Dorado that comes up in Alsi now and then is well worth a go

Aldi*

Don't have Waitrose over here...but even though saying I'm goina wait I'll probs get a bottle for the Grand National! Afraid I'm not really into the spiced ones well unless you would class OakHeart as spiced. Don't have Aldi either over here!

I'm half way through my Ron Zacappa and it is lovely. Only have the good stuff when on offer. HUKD been great for finding these. Been lucky so far. I've had the El Dorado from Aldi. Loved it. Fingers crossed to find Diplomatico Rum Reserva half price some day. A friends husband and I buy different bottles and swap minatures as tasters. Loved Blackwells Rum recently. A little sweeter than my usual. Will post my favourite when I've tried the Bacardi etc.

No one would randomly pay the El Dorado rum price in Glasgow Aldi which is why I think there was stock when I went before. Friends all thought I'd bought the old rough wine which predates Buckfast and Maddog 20/20.

The Angostura 1919 is my kind of rum. Subtle warm flavour with no after burn. The Waitrose assistant begged me not to add coke as this is sipping rum quality. I'm not that refined and have to take it with coke. It works both ways. Worth the normal £26 from Waitrose and Sainsbury. The presentation box and heavy square bottle make it a swish gift for someone.The sound of the stopper cork popping is wonderful.

I've already admitted that dark rums aren't my favourite and this hasn't changed my mind. Mixed with coke it's perfectly drinkable. For me it tastes like other dark rums nothing stand out. I wouldn't pay premium price for it.

If you can't drink it 'Straight Up', try drinking it like a single malt - one cube of ice and a splash of water. You get all the flavour without the burn. I drank all my Aldi 'El Dorado' this way. For drinking with coke, I'd have to go for Woods 100.

I do add a lot less coke to a good rum as its taste still comes through. I know you are right and I really feel guilty adding coke but I don't enjoy it any other way. I tried. I never take a malt whiskey for this reason. I ordered a very expensive glass of Lagavulin in Edinburgh recently. I drank it with ice and water but didn't enjoy it at all. It wasted on me. I have to admit my limits. Oh well.
