Re: Rum

Santa Teresa 1796.....similar to Rob Zacapa but with a bit little mellower finish. Good stuff. Like all good rums this is meant to be sipped and shared, but never mixed.

I do mean an ice cube, or anything else. This rum is too smooth to be mixed with anything but (your own) spit. It tastes like having angels dancing on your tongue.

I have enjoyed other rums: Appleton's, Goslings, The Kraken etc. but none compare with Zacapa neat.

Although probably the most memorable rum drink I had was on Grand Cayman: Appleton's, over ice, with a squeeze of key lime which I had freshly picked from the garden.

I'll have to give this one a try. It's not listed at our LCBO (liquor store). Next time I'm in the states I'll look it up.

Re: Rum

For everyday dark and stormies Cockspur is my choice.

For a sipping rum Barbancourt [the old stuff] is hard to beat.

Re: Rum

I'm not a big rum drinker, but this stuff is excellent and it's my on-board real rum:


Karukera Rhum Vieux, double maturation, from Guadeloupe.

When it comes to spiced rum I carry something called Ma Dou Dou from St. Martin, the bottles are all hand-painted and it is very tasty, but more of a liqueur than a true rum.

Re: Rum

Another vote for Gosling's, but it is hard to find in US liquor stores. Grab it and stash it away when you can.

Always try something new, and if you don't like it...serve mixed drinks or make rum fruitcake. :-)
