Yeah! Nice touch - we'll incorporate that next time. Captains & Ale - Canada Style!

Good Bourbon over ice with just a splash of water.

No need for fancy, just good.

I discovered the "Dark and Stormy" via FightClub. Best drink ever for sailing and warm climes.

Duno, smackdaddy. I found the dark&stormy to just be a waste of good rum. Probably a good way to get rid of bad rum though.

When you say "good" - do you mean "Gosslings" good or "Angostura 1824" good? If the latter I agree - straight up. If the former - DS is the way to go.

A true Dark n' Stormy uses ginger beer rather than ginger ale. Ginger beer has a more gingery and somewhat less sweet flavor. It also tends not to be as highly carbonated. It's getting easier to find than it used to be. Larger liquor stores will have it in their mixers aisle and I even saw it in my local grocery store recently!

We had a discussion on Dark and Stormys a while back if I remember rightly and according to the traditional recipe a D&S is Dark Rum and Ginger Beer. Now maybe its different in the US but over here GB is a very different thing to Ginger Ale.

That said my favourites are Dark Rum and Ginger Ale or Vodka Tonic both with squeeze of fresh lime, lots of ice.

Fast, I never did get the hang of the spiced rum.

Whiskey for me is straight up or on the rocks.....my favourites are middle shelf Jamieson and Bushmill. The you beaut single malt Scotch's are way to peaty (if that's the right word) for my taste. Jamieson and/or Bushmill for me has enough flavour and a decent kick. Currently drinking a bottle of Bushmill Black Bush. Nice drop, step up from Original but I doubt I'd go higher than that. It does seem that I prefer Irish Whiskey to Scotch or Bourbon though I used to drink J&B.

edit - 4arch got there before me with Ginger Ale v Ginger beer comment though Australian Ginger Beer is sweeter than Ginger Ale. GB is gingerier though. Gingerier ? Whoa, doubt that one is in the Oxford Dictionary.

I'm with you on the Irish Whiskey TD. Fine bevvo that.

What's the best Scotch out there? I had a bottle of Glen Fiddich 21 that was truly spanking. Aged in Rum casks - go figure.
