After almost a full day of driving (no stops at Collectors stores this time *frown * ) The Big Fella, myself & the in-laws hit Coffs Harbour for Mick's uncle's 80th birthday party. I won't bore yawl with the details of the shin-dig. Basically the night involved meeting many many many of Mick's cousins, second cousins, cousin's children & various other extended family members, eating copious amounts of party pies, mini quiches & NSRs (Nannas Sausage Rolls) and something called Impossible Pie and lots of cheek kissing and exclaimations "Ooooo haven't you grown!"Thankfully we did a pit-stop at Dan Murphys on the way & I got a trusty bottle of Penfolds Merlot 2009 to help lubricate the family conversations & Mick decided to try a dram or two of the Sailor Jerry Rum. It was about $39 for the bottle.
Well me thinks that if Mr "Sailor Jerry" Collins was in the room Mick would have given him a big hug.
Mega thumbs up from The Big Fella. Now I'm no rum aficionado (prefering the grape) but I sampled a nip or two (straight up no ice) & thought it was a really really nice drop.
It is more of a spiced rum with a bit of a honey taste. More like Captain Morgans than Bundy.
Yep I think that DMs will be seeing more of this drink vanishing off its shelves in Kippa-Ring if The Big Fella has his way.
