Not a rum connoisseur, but we came to really enjoy the rums from the Caribbean that were made from sugar cane directly rather than molasses. The French are promoting a system like the 'Appelation Contrôlée' system for wine for these rums.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
