Come out west.... way out west. In the Marianas we drink Tanduay from the Philippines. $7/bottle and holds its own against any caribbean rum. Sign on as volunteer crew in a couple of weeks to bring my boat from Hawaii to Saipan and I'll buy the first bottle...

Re: Rum enjoyment

My favorite sippers, when I can find them
Barbancourt 15 Unusually good for a 15 anos, my favorite when found (rare in Louisiana)
Flor de Cana 23 or 18 One of the best rums my tongue had the delight to meet
Zacappa 23 Can rums be made any better?
Zacappa 25 although the 25 is rare and expensive, a little sweeter and smoother (if that's possible)
Pampero a little pepperier than the others, maybe not as smooth, me likey
7 year old Bacarrdi easily found, easily afforded, good value, don't hit the ceiling when wifey pours a can of coke on it, low hangover ratio
My favorite mixers
Baccardi Negro from Mexico
Meyers Dark
Old Rum from Belize
Flor de Cana 7 or 12 the 12 year old is my wife's favorite coke mixer,pretty good I must confess
No spiced rums on my list. I can add whatever spicies I need myself. For what its worth, I love rum and have been a collector/drinker for 20+ years. Need to expand my collection.

My wife took a liking to rum 'n' cokes, and I came home to find she had poured drinks for her and her friend, and there was my bottle of Appleton's Master Blender's Legacy sitting on the counter....
To be fair, the bottle IS the same shape as the VX I use as mixer!

After that I had to educate her on which bottles were ok to mix!
This summer I got her onto Mojitos. I gladly mix those for her if it will keep her out of my good stuff!

Re: Rum enjoyment

Had some Zacappa 23, Flor De Cana 18,and some Barbancourt 15 on a shelf. I come home and 1/2 the bottle of the Barbancourt was gone.Wife and neighbor having a few rum and cokes! As soon as I came thru the door "My rum was out, I didn't know what rum to use, so I used the one with the lower number on it" Good logic I suppose, can't get mad at that. It's just so hard to find it here. A little tear rolled down my face as I poured a triple on the rocks. The bottle died that night. But I did my part to honor it.

Re: Rum enjoyment

How good is good rum.

When we were cruising our ritual almost everyday was to create a nice little rum based drink for sundowners, whip up some nice nibbles, and sit in the cockpit, enjoying the lifestyle that is voyaging wherever one likes, weather willing, on your own vessel, free of the crap that is supposedly of great importance to the real world.

Alas I am now back in this 'real world' trying to top up the cruising kitty by working, emailing, phone conferencing and workshopping.

What makes it all better for me, is this moment right now, i am sipping nice rum, reading the blogs of people doing the things we are hoping to do again soon, visualising the sun setting on familiar anchorages and imagining what the sunset will look like in the new places we hope to discover. Hopping on here, focusing again on the ocean, my beautiful boat, and talking sailing while sipping rum is where it is at.

Re: Rum enjoyment

My new favorite rum is that new Kirkland rum from Costco. Had some a friend brought up to the boater's lounge and it was awesome, and for $20/big bottle a great price!
Next up is Shellback rum, it's so smooth and tasty. I'm a trusty shellback who crossed the equator 3 times so I know rum.
Next is Takanaka rum from Seychelles. Delightfully spiced and smooth as the sea we sailed in on.
Sailor Jerry's the old standby.
