I like Meyers dark but I am really partial to Sailor Jerry's Spiced Navy Rum. However, I am not a connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination.

I just started a Rum Group. Seems this Noble Spirit should have its own group. Sailors and Rum, it is a time honoured tradition.

And then there's Bundaberg Red Label (Bundy to Aussies everywhere) - distilled, naturally, in Bundaberg (about 400 km north of Brisbane) since 1888 and absolutely delicious.

I do however remember (very vaguely) a night spent drinking bathtub-grade home brewed rum and cokes in Kathmandu, and by God that did the job!

My tastes run to Rib-Eye steaks, snickers bars and Bass Ale. When I'm out of ale I like all rum and any rum, taste fortified with pineapple, coke or other sweetening agent. After a time, I will happily be with just the rum jug and soft sweet music. Then please, beacon and eggs and lots of milk in the morning.

Sippin' or mixing?

If you are going to make boat drinks then the criteria get a lot looser. I'm kind of partial to DonQ, local Puerto Rican rum. If you are ever in Ponce, visit their factory. No tour but one of the best places in PR to stock up on alcoholic beverages in their little store. They also are one of the major producers of Capt Morgan. Don't bother with the Bacardi tour...might as well visit Disneyland. But, when in St. Croix definitely take the time to visit the Cruzan distillery.

Sorry to resurrect a thread, but I have to retract that. I just bought another bottle of the Cruzan's Blackstrap, and it tastes like it was aged on old cigarette butts. I don't know whether it changed or my taste changed, but I can no longer recommend it.

SAILOR JERRY'S is our favorite. It is the only one we have found that is 46 % instead of the typical 40 %. Priced slightly below Morgan too!

Don Q is my favorite, when I was working in Puerto Rico in the 70s we used to buy it at the distillery in Mercedita, near Ponce, for about $4.00 a bottle. Drink it with water and a squeeze of key lime on ice no hangover next day! Well, maybe a little hangover if you really hit it.

Good luck
