I have with the help of Angostura, converted many former anti-rum, beer drinking aussies.
Okay, because of my deep respect/admiration for you Aussies - I'm going to try the Angostura 1919 on ice. But if it sucks - you'll hear from me pal!

BTW - have you ever been to Texas? Texans and Aussies have a lot in common in terms of attitude, profuse drinking, and all-round gusto...and a serious lack of maturity and sophistication most of the time (heh-heh)!

Cheers dude!

True! Plus you forgot our love of red meat....
I do know some Texans who live here in Sydney, but alas Smack no I have never been to Texas.

I grew up sailing the BVI with my family (late 80s early 90s) and I remember very distinctly how much Pussers Rum was celebrated amongst the locals. I almost shed a tear of joy when I saw it for the first time in the states many years later.

Pussers is great with Fruit, coffee too, but I find it a bit acidic and bitter with soda.

Cruzan Single Barrel Estate is the great "Swiss army knife" of rums. Goes great with everything, even sipping.

Sailor Jerrys is great with Coke and a slice of Lime.

I am still experimenting with the top shelf Rums. I'd love to find a Dark rum that is good for special occasions.

Hey Patient - welcome to Sailnet, dude! Sweet avatar.

I'm with you on the Sailor Jerry's. Good times.

We just finished a bottle of Mt. Gay Extra Old that was really nice. And now we're moving to Goslings Black Seal - which seems to have a saucy reputation amongst the slow-goers. That's good enough for me!

Goslings!! St. Kitt's in a pinch. Mt. Gay Old may as well be cognac.

You say that like it's a bad thing. I'll get back with you on the Gos.

Okay Parley, just kissed off a couple of Dark and Stormies made with Goslings Black Seal. And, I've gotta say, I'm thinkin' Mt. Gay Old has it beat. The Gos is a bit fruity I reckon. Go figure.

I must be a cognac man.

I'm working up to it, dude...with a steady diet of Vegemite. I do have a "job" you know! All this booze "sampling" is making everything blurry.
