Light up and enjoy a drink

All limits on bringing Cuban Cigars and Rum back to the US have been lifted by the Obama Administration. Previously the maximum allowable amount was $100.

If you have never tried either, I strongly suggest you do if given the opportunity. While I'm not a smoker, and can't truly judge their stogies - the experts seem to like them.

I am a dedicated Rum drinker though, straight and clean. I love Cuban Rum! Havana Club is silky smooth; Cosario has wonderful undertones, and Mulatta is so incredibly rich. Any make the churned out by Bacardi, Capt. Morgan, or even better brands like Pussar and Barbancourt taste like Busch Lite mixed with swamp water.

All I can say is.. Thanks Obama!

I've been drinking Brugal anejo for a while now. Might give the Cuban rum a try.

Barbancourt, excellent rum and it was one of my goto drinks before I found access to Cuban, the two have many similarities although I find the Cuban to be milder and smoother. I will also admit that the price of the Cuban factors in as well, I pay about $12/750mm (overseas, but I would be there regardless).

Another brand to look up, and what I use in mixed drinks (I don't mix my Cuban) is Flor De Cana. It's seven year old is really good with a robust earthiness that stands up against dilution and competing flavors. While I'm not a mojito drinker, it's white rum melds nicely with the mint and lime. They also produce a fantastic 25 year old Centennario bottle.

I generally like a drink that has boldness and bite, but I have a special affinity for three-year-old Havana Club. It is mild, and extremely smooth with a wonderful sweetness. It is my primary rum that I sip neat or chilled by a couple frozen whiskey stones. For such a young bottle, it is far above the majority of the top shelf brands we find in the US.

of course my tastes may be far different than yours. Regardless, you can't go wrong with Barbencourt - especially the 15 year old.
