Re: Rum

There is an excellent rum made in these parts called Railean. It was the fist rum that converted me to drinking rum on the rocks.

Re: Rum

I traveled to Colombia quite a bit and have seen many people enjoying Ron Viejo De Caldas. Normally aged 3yrs, but sometimes you can find 5 or 7yr and only once I saw 10yr.

In addition to a few mentioned, and in no particular order:

Ron Abuelo, 7 yr
English Harbour 5 year
Callwood's Arundel 10 yr from Tortola
Matusalem Gran Reserva (being sipped on at the moment)
Don Q Gran Anego
And as a real surprise to me, Captain Morgan Private Stock

Re: Rum

Guyana makes Eldorado Rum. It is the nectar of the gods. Don't mix it with anything. I recommend the 15 year old bottle. I had a team in the jungle that just loved this stuff. When we ran out, they were not happy.

Another good choice to be found locally is Captain Morgan Private Stock. Again, this is good sipping rum. You should always have rum on the boat?

Re: Rum

I drink Mount Gay with ginger ale, or just on the rocks. I also like Captain Morgans Private Stock. I'm really a gin guy though.

Re: Rum

Bacardi 151 distilled in Bermuda; 75.5% alcohol by volume. Anyone for rum balls?

Re: Rum

I agree with medicrene that the El Dorado 15 year old is hard to beat for sipping neat.

For a really nice "on the rocks" rum, see if you can get your hands on Westerhall Plantation Rum. It's a blended rum bottled and sold in Grenada. We stopped by the factory a bought a few bottles.

See Feuerzangenbowle, for info. I prefer a dark pussers rum , ( they do an over proof at 75%) it's all basically cask strength stuff at that alchol percentage.

There are many " over proof" rums about

Re: Rum

I usually restrict myself to beer and wine, but I was once handed some Barbancourt on the rocks that was phenomenal.
For something slightly different, Nassau Royale is great in coffee.

Re: Rum

Well the replies did me in. I had to pour out my wine, rinse out the glass, and pour rum into it. Good job people
