Purchased a new tub of Barrister and Mann Bay Rum and immediately noticed the scent was "off". More than just weak, it simply didn't smell like Bay Rum, especially not like my old tub did. After a few email conversations with Will at B&M, he admitted that the pimenta racemosa he is receiving is, in his words: "rough". My word would be "bad". So yesterday, I made an attempt to salvage this soap, before committing it to the waste bin. Here we go. Took the soap and grated it into a bowl. Note: This soap is quite soft. Boiled some water and added a couple of healthy doses of Meehan Bay Rhum, the strongest Bay Rum juice I own. Mixed the soap with the Bay Rhum/Water mixture. Loaded the mixture back in the tub and I will let it "cure" for a week or so to firm up again. I'll report back with my thoughts soon.
