Why is the rum gone?
No kidding on the questionable taste. 41 bucks a bottle for MG, which has no flavor beyond a typical white and a squirt of food color.
I like Pusser's for emergencies. The alcohol content is fairly high so it's good for disinfection, and the taste is strong enough to stand up to being mixed. And why not support the British Navy Sailors Fund?for years, it was a custom to keep a bottle of Mount Gay on my boat for emergencies.
It's a joke. Sometimes industry changes names of their product because of potentially negative connotations of a given word. For example, when 'rapeseed oil' became 'canola oil', sales picked up very dramatically, basically saving the industry.I seem to be obtuse today. What do you mean?

Another good rum for disinfection, ha ha, is Wray and Nephew:
I digress. is there a rum discussion thread here at S'net?
Don't give up the ship yet, the fat lady hasn't sung. There's a lot of money to be made from those cane squeezings, and unless all the parties involved are brain-dead morons, they should be able to work something out.The end of an era for sailors in the Caribbean. Mount Goofy has been a staple in the Eastern Antilles, since long before I arrived here in 1978.
A nice drop, not the best, but a nice drop all the same. I for one, shall miss it.
So, will it now be branded **** Hill? Or LGBT Bluff? Or Long Time Partner Incline? Or maybe Straight Plain?Mount. Gay. Huh, huh, snicker, snicker, huh, huh. "Hey Beavis, 'Mount gay!'" Snicker, snicker.
