Ma Doudou Punch Rhum

PontiusPalate | Nov 27, 201307:53 PM    

Greetings!

What a great surprise I had waiting for me tonight!

I walked over to my favorite restaurant, located only a five-minute walk away, on this night before Thanksgiving.

I fully expeced to order my usual fresh fish special with my two Hendricks Gin martinis and a Manhattan to go with my chocolate truffle dessert.

But this night was different.

The owner was not about to let me get away with my usual Hendricks Gin martinis. Instead, he insisted upon treating me to a few shots of a private stock of Ma Doudou Punch Rhum he had just received from a personal friend.

I have never been much of a "rum" person. I have always felt deterred by the excessive sweeness and overly harsh bite of the many rums I tasted during my teenage years and early twenties. As a reult, I swore off rum altogether......

Until tonight.

When I reflect upon the taste of the Ma Doudou Punch Rhum I tasted tonight, I can only think of one word:

Wow!

Its taste was as smooth as silk and was absent of the harsh afterbite of those many rums I tasted during my earlier years.

The owner, who respects my opinion, asked me if he should start to stock this on a regular basis.

I gave him a thumbs up!

This means Yes!

If you have tasted this brand before............

Please permit to me to ask.........

What say you?

Bon Appetit!
