Getting cold here in Alaska (oh.. never mind it never got warm).
But anyway, I revived an old simple warm rum drink and thought I would share. This one is perfect for the boat, or when backpacking.

6oz hot water
1 packet Alpine spiced cider
2oz Spiced Rum..

yummmmm.. knock-off hot rum...

There are several rum review sites on the net such as rumreview.com but this is a good one cause it is run by sailors. Good reviews, articles, pictures, fun site.

“Your Guide to Great Rum”

ps a boat on our lake is named "Sotally Tober" , probably a rum drinker

That's the million dollar question lol. Rums are all so different you'll hear a lot of different responses. Personally I find the 21 year old el dorado and cruzan barrel to be some of the best rums I've ever had but every rum drinker will tell you something different. I love to drink gosling's and mt gay as well but I think the first two are outstanding.

We buried an old mate of ours today and at the wake held at his yacht club his grandson passed around his glass with his rum, a Pussers OP. Damn that was nice. They had to wrestle me to the ground to get it back off me.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hee hee.......and it was the Ms W who was the most insistent that I surrender it up. I even had to phone the local bottle shop after we got home to see if they had some and if yes i was out the door. Sadly no go. It's a bit hard to find in Sydney but damn that was a nice drop.

I was in error before , it was in fact the 15 year aged stuff.

Funny story involving Mt Gay Rum --

Many years ago, the admiral and I along with another couple chartered in the BVI and hired a captain for the first few days. We ran out of rum (Cruzan I believe) faster than I thought we would and were docked on Virgin Gorda. So, we were going to walk to the local store to buy some more rum. The captain said, "You should get some Mt.Gay rum, it is the best" in his very heavy accent. Yours truly heard "You should get some monkey rum, it is the best". So I am in this little store, looking at all the rum and muttering to myself "monkey rum, monkey rum". Of course, I wasn't finding any when all of a sudden I saw Mt. Gay, said "monkey" and fortunately made the connection.

I've been drinking Mt. Gay with coke/lime or Mt Gay over ice ever since.
