Here is another great find, and surprisingly it’s a WHITE rum again. Diplomatico Blanco reserve comes from the great rum brand that we all like very much “Diplomatico” from venezula. Drinking this Rum “straight” it’s silky smooth, with a nice vanilla sweetness upfront that finishes dry and a little warm. When enjoying it on the rocks, it just seemed to get watered down and not open up any more flavor, and of course this would make for a top shelf mixing rum for all mixed rum drinks. End result this bottle gets emptied way too fast! Definitely grab this rum if you can find it!
Every year before the Lake starts to freeze and after the ice melts, The water gets so clear you think your in some tropical paradise. Until you put your toes into 40f water temp. That always snaps you out of it. This year it’s definitely the clearest I have ever seen it, just like liquid crystal. Here are a couple of neat shots from the other day that really shows the clarity.
