Savoring rum, cheese, & perfume on St. Martin/St. Maarten

There I was in my white lab coat, examining 40 vials and trying to determine which combinations to mix to get the best outcome.

  • Turns out there's a dude in Durham, North Carolina who calls himself the "Black Bourbon Guy" conducts tastings and teaches cocktail classes featuring said spirit, along with a dose of lore, especially as to how its history is intertwined with black people dating back to the days of slavery. Just this week BBC Travel did an interesting piece about him:
    The untold history of black bourbon
    It's become undeniable that black people – once missing from American whiskey bars and in the telling of whiskey's story – have long played a role in…
