Re: Rum enjoyment

See how devil rum clouds the perceptions?. The Appletons moment usually occurs at the baggage line up at BKK.

Re: Rum enjoyment

Our crew has the ritual of doing a shot of dark rum, once we have dropped the anchor after a day of sailing, then we have what we call a "Rahnie Marini" Dark Rum, Cranberry Juice and a touch of sprite. Serving it up in plastic tumblers and yes, occasionally there is a spill. Suggest "sipper cups" like you use for toddlers, but can't find them in a large enough size. Go Captain Morgan's!

Re: Rum enjoyment

I'm not a really big drinker, but I am a sailor and do enjoy a nip of rum on occasion. My preferences have changed over the years - Bacardi or Captain Morgans was great when I was a kid racing Nacras, Meyer's Dark was the ticket when I learned to cruise on my old Irwin, and up until a few days ago my favorite rum at anchor on my current boat was Santa Theresa 1796 from Venezuela...it's silky smooth and made to be enjoyed straight up. That all changed last week when I was gifted a bottle of the Ron Zacapa 23 year old stuff for my 50th birthday........it is so good I've been tempted to pour it on my pancakes in the morning!

Re: Rum enjoyment

tervis tumbler makes a little lid for all the different size tumblers. I think the idea was for coffee but it will prevent you from spilling rum too

Re: Rum enjoyment

I've been suffering from a cold so I mixed up a classic. Bacardi Oakheart, lemon juice, teaspoon of honey and a tad bit of water in a stemless wine glass. Warmed in the microwave. Just the thing for a sore throat on a winter night.

I had high hopes for Kraken. Cool bottle and labeling. I was very let down by the flavor. Not horrible, but just didn't do it for me.
