Cold War Frost Thinning
While we wait patiently for the Cuban embargo restrictions to ease up and for the impending war between Pernod-Ricard and Bacardi over who gets to use the "Havana Club" brand name to heat up, I invite you to check out the second batch of our impeccable 17 year old edition of Faultline "Caribbean rum, a dynamic distillate that offers the best of both worlds: the richness and vanilla-laden flavors of Spanish style rums with the ester-driven fruit and funk notes of the Caribbean pot still character. This little number from Sancti Spiritus has something for everyone, from cocktail drinkers, to Tiki fans, to whisky nerds, to people who just want to drink something new and interesting. It's full of cola, and fruit, and earth, and loads of rummy cane character. I'm pretty excited to have this back in volume. We're getting ready to send the email offer out shortly, so I'm also excited to see how the public responds to this. I'd like to continue building our rum department around interesting and value-oriented selections like this, slowly and methodically. It would be great to see a wider audience for fun stuff like this at K&L. If you don't feel like buying a whole bottle, you can head over to Smuggler's Cove in San Francisco for a pour. I hooked Martin and the gang up with a few bottles for the back bar.
