Re: Rum

I love Kraken, and only its high price keeps me from drinking excessively.

Looking forward to trying some of the others mentioned here. Great thread! (hic)

Well it was the Pyrate rum, that is what I currently have in the house.

I take it back there is some Mt Gray that my daughter back brought from college life, but that is for mixing.

Re: Rum

Having lived in Puerto Rico for 12 years, I became rather partial to various brands of Puerto Rican anejo, required to be aged for 6 years in order to carry that label. Anejo Barrelito was one of my favorites. George

Re: Rum

We recently met Mr. Prichard of Prichard Distillery while traveling in Belize. He had a bottle of his Barrel Proof that he shared. Very fine. It was like a fine bourbon.

I like Zaqua 12 year Grand Reserva from Trinidad, Seven Fathoms from the Cayman Islands, Mount Gay Extra Old, and a bottle I got from a guy under a tree in Esperanza, Vieques Island, Puerto Rico. That last one is really hard to find and I kind of think that each batch tastes different, but I'm still going to get a couple more the next time we pass that way.

Re: Rum

In my experience what gets bottled and sold in the Caribbean is a totally different animal than what gets imported to the US, at least as far as the major brands go. The standard Mt. Gay that you buy in Barbados and the West Indies is way tastier than what they send north, for example, or at least it used to be.

I took a liking to St. Lucia Distillary's Chairman's Reserve when I was last there, if only for the bang for the buck. Pretty good "aged" rum for the price.

When I have the cake for Ron Zapata 15 yo or whatever it is I'll pop for it. It's pretty much the rum equivalent of cognac in my opinion. Yummy. I'm sure there are other aged rums in the same league I just have not gotten around to sampling them yet. Time to get to work on that.

Kraken. Super Bowl Party. Hangover. For days. But it did taste good in that hot buttered rum, and then with whatever else it was in that was shoved in my hand. I don't really remember...

Re: Rum

Ron Zacapa is first choice
Flor de Cana Centenario is second choice

Beyond those two...I am going to scotch.

Re: Rum

I guess as an old fisherman, I lean toward what my old daddy used, that was pure grog! thick and dark as it can be, 150 proof, sorta hot but it will heat ya to your toes when ya need it !! It's sorta thick but maybe it just takes gettin used to ! But then Im not a big drinker, and tend to stick with the few brands I grew up with, most of which most have never tryed or heard of LOL
