Celebrating a Friend and Sharing Fine Rum

     Windy and blustery, but one of the best tastings yet. So many fabulous rums and so little time. With only seven of us it was a chance to sit and ponder the taste and qualities of all of the fine rums that were present.
     Yesterday we took a little time to raise our glasses to a friend that was lost on November 12th. Patrick Shank, you are really missed around here, and I think you would have enjoyed sitting with us and enjoying a fine rum.
     It is going to be hard to keep up bringing so many quality rums for the enlightenment of everyone. It is such a fun time to sit on the key looking out over the Gulf of Mexico and sip really great rums. This week was no exception with rums that span the range of 2 years to 25 years old and all were just wonderful.
     The cool weather and the warmth of the rum, a really great concept and on that should be repeated throughout the winter.
