That you would choose Captain Morgan's over Sailor Jerry's causes me to loose faith in humanity... Just a little.

In regards to the rum tank on board. My father used to winterize his potable water tank with cheap vodka. It tasted slightlt better than antifreeze and he always had help for spring commisioning.

About what rum to buy. I like Pusser's, but it is pricey. I feel bad if I mix it so I only drink it straight or on the rocks. For mixing Goslings Black Seal. It goes exceptionally well in a dark & stormy.

Oh no, i'm not choosing that but, Morgan's does have a little more spicy flavor to it, and Sailors does get you there faster. Hey, go for whatever makes you happy, and Rum will work.

I drink lots of rum. Cruzan is my choice - neat. But when I can afford it, Capt. Morgan. Neat. (Low maintenance kind of guy - besides, mixers ruin the flavor and lessen the effect and my refrigeration unit doesn't make ice well)

Considering the pain and discouragement that sailors go through with maintaining their boats, I have long held that they do not make rum fast enough.

Pickle, why do you have to be difficult? That said I am blown away how cheap Patron Silver is at Costco in the US. Best value in Tequila I have found.

I prefer beer, the hard stuff gets me there too fast! But there are times it's needed!

The world of rum is so unique and varied from one place to another that it is almost impossible to try all the different rums of the world.
That said, I am not a fan of clear rums. There are so many varieties from amber to dark that Bacardi 151 would be my next to last choice.

As a new Rummie, (3 years drinking Rum - convert from Scotch), my soul is into damnation with no hope of escape. I have the pleasure of weekly traveling to all the great rum makers in the Caribbean and Latin American. This of course doesn't help with my Rum addiction. One must sample all the wares as a courtesy of the host nation. I do try to be a good guest after all. The best sipping rums come from the 3 Latin America nations; Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. 15 year old is great. I found out anything over that is a waste of money ( my credit card can prove that). Mt Gay Reserve will do in a pinch. The rums from Trinidad and Venezuela come in next.
If into mixing rum the Sailor line is the best; Sailor Jerry. Next is Capt Morgan. Bacardi is for the trailer crowd or minimalist amongst us. Dark and Stormy's I consider a health hazard. They simply go down too smooth and on a hot day they go down to fast. Before I know it, I am on my butt with the boat moving while docked in gale force wind.
My dockmates love me only at sundowners where they know where my rum supply is. For some reason every time I come back to the boat after a trip my rum supply has disappeared. Might have to set Rat traps on the boat.
I have converted many Scotch and Wiskey drinkers to become new Rummies. Maybe I should start a new church; Rum Damnation.
