Rum Quest/Mekhong rum

I know it has been way too long between rum reviews and for that I can only beg your forgiveness.

Believe it or not…  tasting all that rum kind of dulls your senses. Soon everything tastes the same, hence a lack of rum reviews.

Then something new comes along and awakens your senses and tests your taste buds.

This, my friends, is the essence of Mekhong rum, th_51

the Spirit of Thailand.

This spirit is made from 95% sugar cane, (Thailand’s climate helps create some of the best sugar cane in the world) 5% rice and a secret mixture of herbs, spices and caramel.

The alcohol content 35% is low, which according to the distillers, should lead to making better mixed drinks.

The nose on this rum is rewarding and yet it does not yield the flavors hidden in the complex body of this fine spirit.

Now, you are wondering, just what does this  rum taste like?

It tastes like the far east, it tastes like The Smoking Budda, (all you locals know just what I mean!) it tastes like your favorite Thai restaurant, it tastes like this!thai%20%20jungle%20curry%20ii

There is ginger, toffee, citrus and vanilla on the tongue, a warm smooth finish. When I taste this rum I get a flavor I can only describe as green. Bamboo? Sprouts? Celery? Lemongrass? Who knows? But it sure is interesting.

Check Mekhong’s web site. It is full of information on this very different and tasty rum. Get some if you can, it was not very expensive and certainly worth a try.

Aloha Classic! Its a great time of year.

Casey’s Blog:

It’s that time of year, were you can watch the greatest event of the year, (well at least for a windsurfer). It’s called the Aloha Classic, and it’s pretty much the Super bowl of Windsurfing. Grab your Computer get online and enjoy watching the greatest watermen and women in the world ride some awesome Waves in an arena type atmosphere.
What’s so unique to this event, besides that it’s got some of the best waves in the world, is the amount of elite talent and diversity of the competitors all at one event. There are many, many past champions of this event, super young guns, SUP world champs, Kiteboard designers, surf board shapers, and incredible surfers all competing to win the Super bowl of windsurfing. No other sport in the world can attract such multiple sport athletes, it’s really a testament to how much freaken Fun Wave sailing can be.

forecast looks good for a 5pm E.T. start for the pro heats today, check it out.  http://www.alohaclassicmaui.com/
