All this talk of rum ...

has got me thirsty for some Calvados, wonderful creation of the folks of Normandy. Remember, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

If you like an after-dinner rum, and don't mind the $50(USD) expense, you simply must try
La Mauny VSOP Old Agricole Rhum
Lots of oak, aromas of baking spices, a hint of vanilla and bitter chocolate, and a long earthy finish. Intense.

Once you have drank all the good stuff (and your palate is 'wasted') why not pay your respect to Carlos - Carlos Rossi - by that point you don't care what you're drinking - just the fact that you still can drink. Otherwise, I agree with Cruzan Single Barrel Rum - ahhhhhhhhh its the best way to make friends.... Welcome aboard!
Cheers,
Bill

Can't beat the taste of Bundy but don't think it is exported from OZ... they like to keep it all to themselves. Fortunately, I have a bunch of Aussie 'Relly's' who visit regularly and keep me supplied. Always keep a fifth or two of the Capt around just in case... There used to be a Canadian rum called Lambs Navy which I believe was imported from the British Isles that was the equal of Bundaberg Rum. All this talk makes me thirsty, think I'll pour a Bundy, Cheers... Capt Phil

If anyone gets near Venezuela, you could do worse than try Pampero rum.


Very tasty. Otherwise, I prefer Mount Gay.

Hud is correct. Barretts Ginger Beer from Bermuda (now in the puke/orange can) is the only one to consider... Another GREAT drink using Ginger Beer is a "Moscow Mule"
Vodka, Ginger Beer, and lots of fresh squeezed Lime ... Try it on a Hot day - awesome! - you will need another immediately upon draining the first one.
