Valiente, you must be an Upper Canada relation to Conrad Black. I can't afford to live in Ontario anymore, so I go to Eastport where a 1/2 gal costs $10 and the Oneida smokes are $7.50 a carton.(That's the first reservation across the border.) It's all fine to have government run the meds on sin taxes, but the Baptists pay nothing and I am regarded as a costly reprobate. It just ain't fair, but immigration is driven by economics. When one can purchase a litre and 3/4 for less than a mickey, figure it out. My rant tonight and NOT directed at you.

Thanks all.. I had already read the other threads about the best rum to buy.. I was just trying to find a good store to buy it from in Annapolis. Guess who is going rum shopping tomorrow?!

I'm very excited... we head down to Annapolis tonight and we get to launch "Pelican" tomorrow! Yippee!!!!

Labatt -- If you have a taste test, please let us in the Naptown area know, OK?

Re: Gosling's Black Seal

Since we have a number of fans, i'll ask if anyone noticed a change in it in the last couple of years? I thought it used to have a 'thicker' 'mouthfeel' (beermaking terms, sorry i don't know the plain English for them), now it seems thin, almost watery (but still with a kick). Am i imagining things?

Also, has anyone seen Bermuda Gold in the states? Nectar of the Gods! The Admiral's favorite (and therefore my primary mission....).

I'll do my best, but it only stands to reason that Commonwealth membership should take precedence

I switch between Gosling's and Havana Club Seven Year. It's great to be a Canadian sailor.

Gosling's is $23 Cdn ($18 U.S.) per 750 ml (26 oz) bottle here. The Cuban rum is about a dollar less. If I can afford marine hardware, I can afford that!

But no offense taken. I am also a home brewer, and make my own beers, meads and other fermented goodies at a small fraction of what retail costs. Personally, I look forward to sampling the wares of the Caribbean at THEIR prices, not my government's.

I don't know Barrett's, but I do agree that Gosling's isn't quite as "dense" as it was when I started drinking it. The "mouth feel" used to be more like Irish Mist than Laphroig, for instance.

I like Rum and my pyrate crew likes it even more!!!!!!! I have had all types of Rum high dollar low dollar one of my very favorite is Cruzan Dark from the Virgin islands I agree with the fancy bottles being nice but not much to do with the taste of the rum. After the first bottle it dont make a lot of difference........My crew Sailor Jerry and Cpt Morgan but they are young haha and have not traveled enough yet....

I picked up a bottle of Pyrats Cask for an ungodly sum of money here in Annapolis. I'll be bringing it over to my friend's tomorrow and hopefully he'll open it up there so I can have a sip!!!

I'll be back down on May 5th to bring my boat up north to Lake Champlain. We'll be leaving on the 7th. I'm thinking we may need to (un)organize a little Sailnet get together somewhere to do a little rum tasting. Anyone interested?
