Review:

We discovered the use of rum in place of cognac in a Vieux Carré thanks to a comment by Collin Westgate on our Vieux Carré page saying that he'd discovered how good this cocktail is with aged dark Jamaican rum after running out of cognac. This was followed by a comment by Roberto Brazzo saying he also prefers rum and refers to them as a 'Près du Quai', "since we moved away from the Vieux Carré 'old square' to a more nautical 'by the docks' or 'near the wharf'." We thank Collin and Roberto for suggesting such a tasty and appropriately named cocktail.
