I was given two really old 750ml unopened bottles of inner circle rum by the mother in law a few weeks back, cracked one and it was nothing short of superb! Rich and full of flavour.
Drank one and on good advice am keeping the other :D
I bought a new bottle of inner circle OP (57%) today

It's frogs piss!!!! :shock:

I am certainly no rum expert but can 25 years in a bottle really make that much difference!

Turning into a nice thread Kenyfused.

The Wray & Nephew was my very first experience with white rum and was terrible. Thankfully I have grown more familiar with the rums and can now enjoy without fear of spinning beds haunting me at 4am
