Re: Rum

I got some Lamb's Navy 151 as a christening gift.. I'm not much of a rum drinker but this stuff is fantastic!


I have some Sailor Jerry's onboard as well, but that's just tradition fodder.

Re: Rum

I have enjoyed Private Stock by Capt. Morgan but my current favorite for both quality and value is Cruzan Spiced Rum.

Mix with coke or coke zero and half of a key lime.

Or, go with Pineapple Juice and a splash of a red juice (cranberry, grape, whatever).

Or, just do a shot from the bottle.

Re: Rum

Curzan Black Strap. With Coke Zero if you must. Ginger Ale or Ginger beer is better.

Always try something new, and if you don't like it...serve mixed drinks or make rum fruitcake. :-)
I cant figure it, but somehow PA state stores actually always have Goslings. most retail stores in NJ never had it. Pussers on the other hand was pretty common.

Re: Rum

Cruzan for value; this when we have something to celebrate: Rhum Plantation

Re: Rum

Ah yes! So many good choices out there, how do you choose just one favorite?

Right now in my cupboard I have:

Doorly's XO - good enough to be a sipper, cheap enough to mix if needed.
Ron Zacapa 23 - a nice sipper with a splash of water
Mount Gay XO - a sipper for when I want something less sweet
Cruzan Single Barrel - one of my favorite sippers. That's the one I pull out to introduce scotch drinkers to rum.
Flor De Cana 18 - very tasty, but a bit pricey.
Appleton Reserve-Can be sipped or mixed. You can never go wrong with Appleton products!
Cruzan 9 Spiced - meh- don't think much of it, but I will bury it in coke! Not a fan of spiced.
Cruzan Blackstrap - Pretty tasty black rum. Makes the best Rum 'n' Egg Nog I have ever tasted!
Havana Club 7 - I've had it for a long time because I really don't like it! Don't even like serving it to others!
El Dorado 15 - Very nice! If you like the Zacapa, try this one!

I really enjoy drinking good rum neat or with a bit of water. I don't like it on the rocks because the ice dilutes it too much, and I find when it is room temperature more aromas are released, adding another sense to the flavors!

When I am at anchor or at the dock I like it with Coke or Ginger Ale. Gosling's Black Seal is one of my main staples for this purpose, although I do like Kraken as a mixer too!
