Rum Specialists in Annapolis?

I'm looking to buy a few bottles of GOOD rum for someone in Annapolis who has been extensively helping me get things done on my boat. Does anyone have any recommendations of a liquor store to go to in Annapolis (other than Pusser's) that may carry a lot of different rums and have knowledge of them?

Thanks!

A personal favorite is Gossling's, out of Bermuda. They have a web site and claim to distribute it in the US, but last time I checked the web site couldn't find me a store, much less a bottle. Could be worth checking again, if they like dark rum with lots of flavor.

It is hard to get but Canary Island Honey Rum is fantastic. Its not harsh, or alcohol smelling and has the glide, smell and taste of real honey.
I would love this as a thank you gift.

The last time this subject came up on sailnet, Gosling's was highly recommended, and I tried it, and they were right. It's good!

A rummy I know in Annapolis swears by a rum called Pyrat. You can buy it at Mills Liquors on Main Street near city dock. It's special according to him. http://www.patronspirits.com/en/cont...ts/pyrat_cask/

It's spelled "Gosling's" and the type is called "Gosling's Black Seal". I drink it about four nights out of seven with a dash of bitters and a squirt of lime juice.

It is the basis for the original Dark and Stormy, and I find, rather than ginger beer, that I enjoy Vernor's Ginger Ale, which has a distinctive lemon note, to make the ideal DaS.

I seem to recall a similar discussion before . Personal favourites (so far) and you can't go wrong with: Demerara Rum, 15 year old. Barbancourt, Reserve Spéciale.

I'm sure you can get both in Annapolis...

Valiente-
So YOU'RE THE GUY who's been drinking it all up! Hey, leave a bottle on the shelf for someone else to buy, wouldya?

Barnancourt I think I've tried, at least some of their products. Very nice but very "light" compared to Gosling's. I'll have to add Demerara to the short list to try, boozeries in the US don't seem to think rum has any use besides adulterating Coke.

That Pyrat stuff...Nice presentation bottle but fancy bottles and drawstring bags make me think it needs to be served with a wee little paper umbrella in it. I guess I've got a thing for unpretentious booze: "Here's the bottle, here's your glass, have a nice day." Glasses optional and extra in some cases.
