Eric Asimov of the New York Times writes “Older Isn’t Always Better“. I disagree with his premise, particularly his list of top 10 aged rums. Comparing Barbancourt 15, El Dorado 15, and Ron Matusalem Gran Reserva to Barcardi 8 shows his ignorance about aged rums. And to call Bacardi 8 a “Best Value”? Go back to your bubblegum flavored vodka, please.
