Love that “raw material driven” definitely a unique and specific way to think of those types and styles of distillate.
Trader Jay
42:32

Doing a side by side of Sagacity and Destino
Darren Roberts
54:39
Richard for the various marques that you produce (Foursquare, Doorlys, Rum 66, Real Mc Coy, etc…) do you look for blends that fit a specific profile for each brand? Is there a signature profile for each different labeling?
John Gulla
54:47
betting on Destino there
Jason’s Iphone
55:57
Same age, Same Wood types. 48% abv vs 61%

Joe & Myssi - Rum Traveler
01:07:56
hahahaha exactly Gayle!
John Gulla
01:08:02
its interesting.... if i drink a FS ECS on its own, I'm always convinced it may be the best one ever.... lol... its only when i put them together that i even start to note any subtle difference or any preference.
Brandon Cummins
01:08:16
TTB Regs for Whisk(e)y vs those for Rum…
Gayle Seale

Fleur de cana?
Joe & Myssi - Rum Traveler
01:12:09
The 1998 ECS sold for 3200 euros at auction... that baby is our insurance policy
Trader Jay
01:12:35
Myssi, will you adopt me?
Joe & Myssi - Rum Traveler
01:12:56
yes, as long as you don't open the 1998 :P
Trader Jay
01:13:21
if you adopt me then maybe I can get it in your will??? ;)
Trader Jay
01:13:32
Guess I'd also have to outlive you! Damn
Greg Goldstein
01:17:34

Gayle Seale
01:18:10

Greg Goldstein
01:19:06

Trader Jay
01:19:29
Where do we all pick up a FS hat??!!
Darren Roberts
01:19:36
Yes pleases
Gayle Seale
01:19:51
I usually have a few at the rum shows :-)
Broc Smith
01:20:18
The other F word… hahahaha
Gayle Seale
01:20:19
I’m looking for an online service that does hats like Redbubble does T shirts.
Trader Jay
01:20:39
Yes, please, Gayle! Since who knows when we will have a rum show again!?!
Trader Jay
01:20:44
:(
Zack
01:20:53
I would order a hat if available.
John Gulla
01:20:59
same!
Gayle Seale
01:21:34
If anyone knows of a US company that lets you design and sell locally - please let me know
Typhoon Tommy
01:21:40
yes Hat!
Greg Goldstein
01:21:42
and I still sip from this bottle you got to me
Trader Jay
01:22:14
Gayle, I'll see if I can find one and we can set something up
John Gulla
01:22:33
I bet we can source that somewhere here in FL
Trader Jay
01:22:40
agreed, john
Gayle Seale
01:23:08
another one of my favs Greg
Broc Smith
01:23:11
RedBubble is a drop shipper?
Gayle Seale
01:23:49
Redbubble is great you can find most of the foursquare shirts there… they don’t do hats yet
Broc Smith
01:24:07
Is there business model drop shipping?
Trader Jay
01:24:16
Redbubble is kinda like Zazzel (I think(
Zack
01:24:19
I know companies like Kotis have programs where they will handle the stocking and shipping of your merchandise.
Gayle Seale
01:24:50
I bought my Doorlys shirt from redbubble. We make rum in Barbados not t shirts lol.
Trader Jay
01:25:03
LOL
Joe & Myssi - Rum Traveler
01:25:15
rightfully so, Gayle!
Gayle Seale
01:25:17
I will look into Kotis and Zazzle
Zack
01:26:22
We have had good experiences with getting merch from Kotis but haven't used any service.
Jason’s Iphone
01:27:19
Ok...so first taste Destino kicked me in the teeth but after 4 drams I’m revisiting it and it’s superb. Curious if we have time to discuss some of the EU releases vs US releases
Trader Jay
01:27:49
Jason, I'll ask
Trader Jay
01:27:58
or kick it to you to ask
Joe & Myssi - Rum Traveler
01:29:09
Tasted some R.L. Seales we picked up in Barbados in 2010 and it is delicious! I wonder if the R.L. Seales they have at Total Wine these days is the same blend
John Gulla
01:29:42
good news is that it would be really inexpensive to find out!
John Gulla
01:29:46
would love to hear
Joe & Myssi - Rum Traveler
01:30:30
yes we will do a side by side!
John Gulla
01:30:41
cool!!
John Gulla
01:31:19
curious to know how much it has "evolved" - to use Richard's words
Darren Roberts
01:32:33
Will Brexit change the ability of British merchants to be able to have access to the EU releases /
John Gulla
01:32:40
great question
Gayle Seale
01:34:08
Already sent Kotis an email Zack
Trader Jay
01:34:41
All, I plan to try to wrap us up at 7pm so let me know if there are last comments/qs
Gayle Seale
01:35:53
Montes
Darren Roberts
01:36:01
I just want to know if any part of the distillery is open on a Sunday? Im scheduled to be there for one day ( 1 NOV) and would love to visit any part of the operation
Gayle Seale
01:36:16
Montes Alpha M is one of my favourite wines
Broc Smith
01:36:29
I’ve had Montes Alpha and maybe some of their higher end Carmenere
Trader Jay
01:36:34
Gayle, can Darren visit on a Sunday?
Zack
01:36:39
Any 100% port or madeira cask releases?
Broc Smith
01:36:42
I love a good Carmenere!
John Gulla
01:36:55
want to ask about what is coming up!
Jason’s Iphone
01:36:58
Thank you all so much. Richard and Gayle, you are appreciated.
Gayle Seale
01:36:59
The distillery is open to wander through. If we are on island let us know and one of us will take you around :-)
Trader Jay
01:37:17
John, I'll make that the last Q
Darren Roberts
01:37:46
That would be incredible! I will reach out once they confirm we can sail. Thank you very much!
