Live Aboard,Bluewater,Coastal- Who''''s the better sailor?

DM,

I''m AGHAST! Mt Gay is from Barbados (I know when the bottle is on its side it kinda looks like Jamaica...) But for the Bermuda Gosling Black Sheep drinkers you should try some Appleton''s Estate 21 year old (really from Jamaica) with the Blue and Silver label. I just drained the last of mine (it''s unaffordable or unavailable in the States) a month ago and was depressed for a fortnight.

But on Esmeral we keep a ready supply of Puerto Rican rum to be used solely (no pun intended) to send the fish we catch on to their greater reward without a lot of flopping about.

As to the "better" sailor...my vote goes to the one which carries a supply of sippin'', and mixin'' rums with enough variety to make a killer Mai Tai.

Killer Mai Tai Recipe:
Short Glass with ice
Squeeze of lime
1 Part White Rum
1 Part Medium Rum
1 Part Dark Rum
(optional) 151 Floater
Pour together and hold glass near a fresh pineapple for no more than 15 seconds (you don''t want to bruise the rum). Enjoy while you can still hold the glass.
