    Default The Rum Thread

    So after seeing all the love for Scotch I thought that I'd see if there is as much love for the rum drinkers out there.

    My current fav is Koloa Dark Rum

    I find Rum very sweet and don't drink it very often but when I do, I like Flor De Cana from Nicaragua.

    Never touch the stuff but someone gave me some Captain Private Stock on ice and it was actual decent. My guess is though that Captains probably isn't anything special to rum people.

    There's been a couple rum threads over the years, but none really got too far. Just looked back and here's my post from one of them. I still stand by it.

    Iv'e had some of the Zaya Gran Reserva as well, and it's excellent.
    Since then I've done:
    Flor De Cana, - I liked it.
    Mount Gay - not too crazy about it.


    Have done a bunch of different ones, and honestly, I've never found anything I like better than the 7 year Havana Club. It's a great value too, considering every drop in the blend is a minimum of 7 years old, that's not an average like some blends. I'm a bit of a heathen though, as I usually mix it with a splash of ginger ale. Ah well,

    Wife is Guyanese, mother in law had El Dorado...made me a spiced rum lover. This is my favorite so far.

    Had Mount Gay last weekend and liked it as well.

    Both of those I'd drink straight.

    Lambs and Bacardi have been failures unless mixed with Coke...so I don't have to taste them

    I'm not a fan of the 4-year (or any clear rum really) but very happy to mix the 7 or drink the 12 / 18 neat.

    I'm not a big drinker, but my boss gave me a bottle of this last year and I enjoyed it.

    Say all you want, for a regular rum and coke this is what I drink.

    Love the flavour.

    I know Appletons doesn't seem to get a lot of love out there, but don't knock the brand until you've tried their 12 year Extra Reserve.

    It's good enough to sip neat.

    Old Monk Used to be my go to, but then they started finding glass shards in the bottles haha. Switched to plastic, and it was never the same.

    I have made a batch of my own, and it turned out pretty delicious. If you have time and paitence, its really not that hard.
