Lots of small run rum makers are now selling product on a local level. Just curious what your favorite rum is to drink straight without ice or a mix?

Mine? Goslings Black Seal. :D

Tried some of really great rum in Grand Cayman just recently. I like Tortuga Gold Rum and Seven Fathoms Premium Rum.

Aye, Private Stock be my choice as well. After that, there are a couple of ties, Pyrate and goslings.

Interesting that so many people like Captain Morgan. I rather dismissed it as being too large a distiller to create a rum that can be enjoyed without a mix.

Ron Atlantico Private Cask. Mmmmm. Pyrat is pretty good too. (Although my favorite pirate drink is stolen mead. ;) )

Private Stock is the only one worthy, the rest is mixer from my experience.

English Harbour would my favourite neat, Kraken would be me second. Pussar's is also a good rum but a lttle on the dry side fer me.

I'm simple . . .

I prefer Blackstrap, then Pyrat. CM Private Stock is pretty good, but a bit sweet.

Pusser's is quite good too. I love Mount Gay, but it's a bit more costly.

When I buy it myself, I get either Blackstrap or Pyrat- dependent upon my mood at the moment and the prices of the store.

Pusser's IS the British Navy rum, for those who don't realize it. When the Royal Navy stopped buying all of it, the manufacturer got permission to sell the rum to the general public.

Whether Pusser's rum gradually changed over its 300 year time as THE RN rum, due to changing tastes of time, or stayed the same (as Pusser's says) is a matter of debate. The present Pusser's IS the stuff used in WW1 and WW2, maybe earlier (how early?).

Wasen't it originally 1 part Pusser's to 2 parts water to make Grog? 1/3rd rum and 2/3rds water. Pusser's was namwd after the guy in chsrge of giving it out (the pusser).

I recently killed a bottle of Siesta Key rum which was very nice but a little rough to drink "neat".

After being totally "grossed out" by rum for the longest time....(err...long story, but it involves college), last night I hit my stash and found a nice bottle of Puerto Rican coconut rum. I was so used to Captain Morgans and Black Seal, that I figured that this would basically be the same. It wasn't. Absolutely delicious. I even had a shot of it straight up and it was not harsh at all. Mix it with some orange liqueur and orange juice and you have yourself a delicious beverage.

Aye, mark me down on the Morgan's Private Stock list...I explain to me more lubberly colleagues here at library that it's like being smashed in the mouth with a fistful of vanilla beans...but in a *good* way...

Besides...its easy to find. Can't lay hooks on Pyrat here, scupper me hide...

I take a drop of Kraken, Pyrat or Pampero Anniversario. CM and those other mass produced are strictly mixers in my quarters.

I tried Captain Morgan Tattoo last week... god awful sweet syrup. Must be mixed as a drink or thinned out with another rum.

I'll stick with Kraken.

Mt. Gay. Neat, wrecked (on the rocks :rolleyes: ) or mixed with a little ginger ale and lime (sort of a fizzy grog, if you will.)
