Advanced Rum with Edward Hamilton


Ed Hamilton, the Minister of Rum, will be appearing locally to teach “RUM 201: Advanced Rum”.  This event is part of Alameda’s Forbidden Island  RUMFEST 2008 celebration.

February 27th at 7:00pm: RUM 201: Advanced Rum with Edward Hamilton.

Forbidden Island is pleased to welcome back Edward Hamilton, internationally known rum expert and the author of four books on rum. Edward will be teaching an “upper division” course on rum to build on the class he taught at Forbidden Island last year. But don’t worry, Rum 101 is not a pre-requisite for this class! Ed will discuss in detail the differences in rum blends and styles, featuring navy and demerara rums, identifying the differences between molasses vs. sugar cane rums, and more. Of course, there will be a matched tasting with the class, featuring some of the finest rums in the world. Tasting tickets are available in advance or at the door for $30, but supplies are limited, so hurry in. Don’t miss this very special event!

In other news, 

Alameda tiki bar Forbidden Island has announced the creation of the Kill-Devil Club, a rum-tasting program in which participants who sample all of the rums on the checklist (around 100 of them) will get their name printed on a plaque behind the bar. No word on whether it’s inspired by Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant’s Blue Agave Club, whose members can earn a “master’s degree” by drinking 35 Tequilas.

For a quick start to the Kill-Devil program, patrons can try three tasting flights of four rums each. A rare bottle new to the bar is the British Royal Navy Imperial Rum, which was rationed daily to sailors up until 1970.


THIS IS NOT FAIR.  I must have sampled at least 15 rums at FI over the last year and now I have to start over again!  Oh, well.   If any Bay Area bloggers/sailors would like to meet and get smashed, drop me a line.

    Showcased like a playable advanced course within the potential massive hit The exorcist That old Republic, from the The exorcist business, arrives this particular specific class referred to as Vanguard – a specialized class/ advanced class in the SWTOR Trooper. Selecting to play the Trooper from the beginning is a option not really for that weak because after a person achieve degree 10, you’ll walk down exactly where a choice no matter whether you’ll take part in the SWTOR Commando or the SWTOR Vanguard. This particular write-up may enlighten you down the route from the Vanguard.

    The Vanguard itself can be a personality of sheer power. A personality worth fearing right after peaking into its inventory that is filled with weaponry associated with significantly huge destruction. A entire array of fire energy as well as defensive mechanisms put into it’s arsenal. An very harmful course if confronted directly. It’s tool of choice tend to be much more full of harm and power — weapons like the flamethrower, huge based blaster guns as well as energy energy protects as an uncrackable defense. Inside the game, you’ll be able to update all these equipment developments.

    With this huge harm working weapons as well as thick-played armor comes their weak point. The actual SWTOR Vanguard transfer really sluggish. If you actually locate yourself in a sticky situation, your own greatest bet would not be to operate but switch on your own weapons in the enemy and great time all of them with every single potential harm dealing weapon you have. As your weaponry can take away huge levels of troops, the downside is also your own insufficient near combat. Simply because your own option of weaponry are heavy equipment, the light heavy Jedi’s along with extremely dangerous light-sabers tend to be challenging to defend towards. Their pure jumping and float-like agility permit these phones enter into a melee range really rapidly. Although your own armor is one of the strongest inside the game, your very best chance could be to get enemies from the range as quickly as potential.

    The Star Wars that old Republic Vanguard may be the very best line of defense for that Republic and quite reliable in the duties and duties. To summarize, this advanced class just isn’t filled with shocks like other courses but a good personality you’ll be able to usually rely on. With their main focus on blaster guns, energy protects as well as defense, tanking and near range harm per second (DPS). Vanguards skill trees and shrubs incorporate Techniques, Shield Professional as well as the discussed ability sapling with Commando, the actual Assault Professional. Inside the end, everything boils down to the players selection with what style of perform they need, however realize that the SWTOR Vanguard will often have a location within the battleground and of the utmost significance to a solid victory.
