bmunse This last memorial day I was racing in the Leukemia cup in Lake Carlyle (just east of St louis) As I was shoping for stores for my crew, one is named Jerry, I found "Sailor Jerry" spiced Navy Rum. Easy to serve, no mixing required, just pour over ice and enjoy. The hula girl on the label is easy to look at too. It is now being sold in local groceries here in St Louis. I don't know how available it is in other parts of the country. The web page gives the background of Sailor Jerry who was a tattoo artist in Hawaii before wwII. A good nautical background and at $13 a bottle a cheap buzz to boot.

Jotun RayMetz, from the rums that are available in your town, I would go for the Gosling's Black Seal. It is excellent rum and is moderately priced.

gc1111 For a recommendation from a REAL sailor, see This is Eric Forsyth's web page and when he leaves on a voyage he usually heads for St. Martin first specifically to purchase a supply of rum for the trip. Watch his videos for some footage of him loading up.

There is nothing remotely like it...

Pussers is great. This is the original British Navy issue. It is in production for the public but a little hard to find. Down in the BVI's it is readily available and they have a great recipe for a drink you can mix up ahead and put in a small beverage cooler. "Painkiller". I would reserve this drink for after the race.

entertainment..and a laugh

for those that have never seen or tried it...Coyopa...besides being very tasty as a sipping rum..when you pick up the bottle it plays steel drum music and the bottle lights up... and libation..what could be better than that..(ok nekkid dancing girls..but..comes close)

sail2001 Only one rum need be pursued...Havana Club, over rocks...but, until such time as our esteemed "Gov'ment" gets their heads out of dark places and allows commerce with our good neighbors, Appleton Estate with a splash of tonic will have to suffice. In moderation, mind you...your liver is a filter, and you can't see the vacuum gauge......

Waymar83 Well to each his/her own. I'll try any rum, once.

Johnrb: You are right, Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) , makers of El Dorado is not a huge operation.*Probably never will be. But they are looking at expanding their international market. So now when I move back to Canada I will still havew access.

TrueBlue I repeat - Goslings Black Seal Rum. Accept no substitutes

The brother of a good friend brought up a bottle of 15 year old El Dorado from Guyana. My first time but not my last although it's not in every store in Ontario.
