Rum Chata

RumChata Review

RumChata is made with premium Rum & Horchata. Horchata was originally concocted by the ancient Egyptians for the Pharaohs, a feat easily as impressive as the Pyramids. The pioneering Egyptian chufa style horchata, which is made with chufa—also known as the tigernut—was so revered that it soon found its way to Spain during the time of the Moorish kings.
Today, you’ll continue to find horchata made with this same original recipe in most areas of Spain, where it remains a very popular summertime beverage—we’re talking Antonio Banderas popular. Chufa plantations aren’t exactly a booming business on this side of the pond, so when horchata was finally introduced to the Americas the recipe had to be changed. Rice based horchata is now served extensively throughout Mexico and Central America, where the recipe is often passed down generation to generation. These authentic recipes include varied mixtures of rice, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and either water or dairy.
What is more delicious than horchata is horchata with rum in it, RumChata. Get your next party started with a bottle of RumChata, and serve it on the rocks or try out some of these great RumChata recipes!

Samuel Adams Utopias Review

American Strong Ale or Barleywine what is Utopias? It is an extraordinary brew that is the result of complex and carefully timed brewing, it is a blend of batches, some having been aged more than 20 years in a variety of woods. The Utopias 2013 was aged in casks from Buffalo Trace Distillery and eight-year-old Port barrels from Portugal. Then blended with a touch of Kosmic Mother Funk (KMF), a Belgian-style ale barrel-aged for at least nine months (and up to two years) in Hungarian oak tuns, that is some information I found on it, now for my opinion.

This beer is un-carbonated and high in ABV, so you can open it and drink it over time, it will just get better with age (don’t store this bottle in the refrigerator a cool dark place is fine). I was told serve at room temperature (about 69 degrees Fahrenheit).

Jim Koch from Samuel Adams says that 2013 Utopias is Limited so don’t pour it like a beer pour small 2 ounce pours in smaller glasses a little goes a long way.

Proof 54 or 27% ABV

Visual – if you swirl it in a glass you see legs, very long legs, color is mahogany/reddish

Aroma – Earthy

Taste – Dark fruits, molasses, sherry like, prunes, berry, cherry, plums, orange, candy, maple, barley, caramel, butterscotch with a very dry finish on the end like an aged Sherry. It is like a liqueur as it warms you, no burn, consistency is thick it covers your mouth.

If you can find it, buy it and drink it, personally think it is worth the price. But good luck finding it, less than 15,000 bottles were brewed. And thirteen states prohibit its sale because its alcohol content exceeds the legal limit for beer, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington. I live in California I went to many stores to track it down and K&L Wine in Hollywood was out of it yet they were the ones that helped me find a store that had it, thank you K&L for all your help. I did pay $299.99, I know it is a lot yet it was their last bottle and if they had another one I would buy it tomorrow.
