Superior 70 mentholated

As a result of my most recent decision to lay off aftershaves and colognes, I have returned to one of my old favorites: Superior 70 mentholated splash. Cheap and good, with no lingering fragrance discernible to me. Because I enjoy tinkering with stuff, I have bought some menthol crystals and have added a large quantity of that heavenly stuff to my big bottle of Superior 70. I also added a large dollop of 444 after shave balm.

I love it as well. S-70 used to have a eucalyptus (an eucalyptus sounds funny ?) that I wish they still made.Limacol makes a mentholated version of their great citrus splash,and both Limacols are fantastic bargains.

My old bottle of 70 is bay rum. Very high alcohol content (70?) so it does burn a lot for a bay rum.

Today marks the beginning of my 4th straight bottle of Superior 70 Mentholated splash. I added 1/3 tube of 444 ASB and about a teaspoon of menthol crystals. The resulting product is my favorite - scent is good but not at all long lasting - the post shave skin care is right on the mark. There was an unexpected bonus too: one morning immediately after shaving and applying the Superior 70 I walked past my wife and she said "what is that you're wearing, it smells really good!" 8) Win-win!
I buy it from a Cuban-oriented website. One bottle lasts me about 6 months with daily use. This is my last remaining bottle so I will be placing an order for a quantity of replacements within a few weeks or months.

This bottle will be all used up before the end of the year, most likely. I have placed an order for replenishments, but received a call from The Cuban Market in Miami. They tell me there will be a delay in receiving my order due to the fact that Superior 70 is made in Ponce, Puerto Rico. I told them I'm fine with any delay they may have. It's now in back order status, and obviously, Ponce as well as the rest of Puerto Rico has far more important things to take care of at the moment, considering all of the devastating damage there from the recent outbreak of major hurricanes. I wish them all well, and am looking forward to a lifetime of nothing but Superior 70 Mentholated aftershave splash, bottled in Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Update: hurricane damage to Costa Rica's Superior 70 factory

The Cuban Market (Miami) sent me the last few bottles they had on hand and refunded the remainder of my purchase price due to the long-term loss of the factory. I have now located a new source in the state of New York. Today the package arrived and I've secured what is likely a lifetime supply of my favorite after shave splash.

It's been a bit more than 2 years since I began using Superior 70 mentholated splash to which I have added copious amounts of menthol crystals and 444 ASB. This stuff is heavenly. I've consumed 4 1/2 bottles and the current one will run out in June. Each bottle lasts 6 months with daily use. I can feel the comforting 444 ASB and the cooling menthol.

Tomorrow July 5th will mark the first use of bottle #6 of Superior 70. It's ready to go with the addition of more menthol crystals and 1/3 of a tube of 444 ASB.

This week marks the opening of my 7th bottle of Superior 70 mentholated aftershave splash. I always add two caps full of menthol crystals dissolved in a small amount of rubbing alcohol and 1/3 of a tube of 444 aftershave balm to a new bottle before I start using it. This is inexpensive and lasts me 6 months. I have a bountiful stash of Superior 70 on hand for the next several years.
