Personal experience:
If you Run
When full of Rum
you will fall on your Buns.


Sorry! Really I am. Just couldn't help myself. And all of this without any Rum either.

Necessity is the mother of invention, yes?

On our May BVI trip we were running low on mixers, but not rum. We called it the "half drink". Half a lime, half ginger ale, half club soda, half rum(Bacardi Gold in this case). Math isn't my strong suit, but the drinking be!

I am fortunate is that I get to the Caribbean each week, for I am the one taking your sorry asses there for the most part. As such, I get to pick up the favorite rum of the destination. So far, I like Mt Gay Old Reserve, and Flor de Cana 15 year old ($14, did a Managua trip last month). My dock-mates found out what I can bring back, so needless to say I have many friends and a shopping list. Of course the first people I took care of were my dockline handlers. I haven't found out what Neptune and the wind Gods like for they have been very unkind to me of late. So I am open to suggestions.

I found this in a very old book about the virgin islands:

"One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong and four of weak".

That is to say, one part lime, two parts sugar (or syrup), three part rum, and four parts water (ice). It's never let me down.

How does most of these Rums stack up against Cruzan Single Barrel Rum?

Personally I like "Pusser's British Navy Rum" it's as old school as it gets, with Gosling's running a close second. I don't usually mix them, but if it's cold Jagertee or Grog is awesome as is the ale flip (pale ale with sugar, rum, and spices served piping hot)... Simplified jagertee (rum and black tea) is great on ice too. However, more often than not G&Ts are the warm weather beverage of choice on my boat.
