Montecristo

Friday, October 18th, 2013

While working in the liquor industry I got my hands on some bottles of Montecristo Rum, Guatemala made.
I kept two bottles, and of course I drank one of them and saved the other.
I’ve been to several liquor stores and supermarkets here in Guatemala and I’ve not found it. (!)
The quality is great for the price, on the rocks it is perfect for any occasion.
Don’t hesitate to grab a bottle if you spot it here in Guatemala, and tell me where so I can buy a bottle too. If it still available…!

Zaya

Another jewel from my private stash.
This is Zaya, a very delicious Guatemalan rum.
Bad news: It is no longer made in Guatemala!
While I was working in the liquoer industry I had it a few times and I was able to save a bottle and then I get news it was no longer made here. I’m glad I still have a Guatemalan made Zaya.

Zacapa Centenario

World’s best rum!
I’m not kidding.
I worked in the liquor industry for eight years and I got samples of hundreds (yes hundreds) of rums and no one came close to Zacapa 23 year old. Until! a Zacapa XO, a 25 year old was introduce.
Full of character, don’t spoil it with anything, not even ice! And the best pairing available to us here in Guatemala and NOT YOU in the States is Cuban Cigars. Have a few glasses of Zacapa 23 or XO and a Cuban Cigar and you’ll be in heaven while they last.
