Re: Rum

I now have a mission. Sail the world in search of the finest potent potables available everywhere, then once my liver has failed, open up a nice little speak easy offering only the finest libations.

Re: Rum

Am sure different, but the Mt. Gay we get here(northern Mn) is really un-drinkable. Smells and tastes like kerosene. Always have Pyrat for me, but Appleton Estates 12 y.o. also around. Still like my Patron sippin summer days. That is my anti-lawn mowing elixir of choice

Nice piece of Caribbean rum tourism in the New York Times:

Re: Rum

So many different rums, so little time.

Re: Rum

I can't believe no one has mentioned Goslings Black seal, has to be the best out there, so cheap in Bermuda.

I can't believe we've made it to 9 pages and no one has mentioned Shipwreck rum yet! Its brewed in St Kitts. My absolute hands down favorite rum for sipping, mixing, smelling, bathing in, or whatever else I can think to do with it.

Re: Rum

Flor de Cana is certainly good, but my very first true sipping rum experience was with Pampero Aniversario out of Venezuela. I have tried a full gamut of fine sipping rums but still keep coming back to it. Of course, now the whole country appears to be burning down in chaos so that may affect distribution, I reckon. But definitely give it a try.

Of the rather limited selection of good rums available here, Goslings is an everyday favorite of mine as well.

I have fond memories of having finished the Bermuda Ocean Race from Annapolis in 1990 and hanging out for a week with my crew at the St. Georges Dinghy and Sport Club. Goslings had scheduled a free "Dark and Stormy" promotion at the club for the racers several days after the finish, but timed it poorly... most of the hard-core racers had already headed back to the US. Goslings showed up with a bottomless supply of cases of rum and ginger beer, and the official Goslings "bimbette" plied we few remaining more casual race participants with free drinks all evening. It was the 4th of July, and -- after the sun went down -- we tipsy Yanks were lamenting the the absence of festivities there in the remotist reaches of the former British empire when fireworks erupted across the harbor. We had forgotten about the presence of the US naval facility on the island, and our countrymen were celebrating.

All in all, an evening worth remembering!

Re: Rum

My favorite of all time is the Dominican Brugal Anejo. I like dark rum but not sweet or spicy.

That answers that question I had. Will develop taste for kerosene ASAP.
