Ron de Jeremy is exceptionally smooth 7-year old rum from Panama. It is created by another legend, a 72-year old Cuban Master Blender Francisco "Don Pancho" Fernandez. Ron de Jeremy tastes perfect naked with nothing added and works equally great as a mixer. It is the adult rum.

FORT WORTH, TX - A Texas man grows the world's hottest chili pepper.
Now he wants to grow what pepper aficionados believe will be the next record holder.
"I don't want to burn anybody up."
But he does!
"I like it hot and I have to be very careful when I cook."
Ronnie Walley wraps hot peppers in bacon and adds chili powder to many of his dishes.
"I could mix and match and make my own chili powder that would give you a burn from the front of the mouth all the way down the throat but a burn that wouldn't kill you."
Ronnie grows and sells peppers from his backyard garden in Fort Worth. The plants are going dormant with the cold weather, but the peppers are very much alive, especially the Bhut Jolodia - the world's hottest pepper.
"It has a delayed burn. You may take a bite and wait a few seconds and take another bite, and then it's too late but ice cream should be able to neutralize that burn."
Like Ronnie said, it's not too bad at first.
"Wow! I'm starting to tear up."
It took a few minutes and a cup of ice cream to get over the harsh burn down my throat. Ronnie also grows what he believes will be the next world record holder - the Trinidad Scorpion. He says it has a sting.
Ronnie Walley wants to get the seeds for another pepper that could become the world's hottest. It is a hybrid of three peppers grown by a man in Australia.
