Today was my first use of Route 66 Rum Runner I received as a gift.  The title had me believing it was a straight forward bay rum soap.  The scent off the puck was more like a sweet rum drink.  When in doubt, I went to the web site and read the description which read " Bright white Citrus and Ginger top notes over Sweet Hay, Sandalwood and Cinnamon. Anchored with Sugar Cane Rum and Birch Wood."  I fully admit I am not the best at describing scents.  However, as I lathered I picked up some more of the ginger and spice but not like a normal bay rum scent.  More like a spiced rum punch.  All in all a very pleasing scent and one I am sure that I will enjoy using.  The performance of the soap is top notch as expected from Route 66 soaps. The lather was stable, slick and provided great glide and cushion.  The post shave feel is top notch as well.

I went with a traditional 3 pass shave paying attention to my trouble areas as I went.  The Cobra was like a squeegee wiping away the lather and whiskers.  With minor touch ups, along my jaw line and neck, I ended with a smooth and drama free BBS.  Finished of the shave with a splash of Captain's Choice Bay Rum with menthol added.  I hope everyone has a great Sunday.

Excellent lather and scent, and taking my time resulted in an excellent shave. TTFFC makes a soothing aftershave, too. Cryogen kept me chilly throughout the shave and the WSP Tobacco balm continued and finished the soothing process.
Prep: Chiseled Face Cryogen
Soap: Through The Fire Fine Craft For Flint
Brush: Merkur Futur
Razor: Merkur Futur 5-5-5
Blade: Voskhod
AS: TTFFC For Flint, WSP Tobacco balm
