My fav has to be Mount Gay's "Sugar Cane Rum", it would be the "Extra Old" if it was free!!!!!

I agree with this review

I have had both bottles in front of me and they are not the same thing!!!

Right now I am enjoying some St. James H'ors D'age I scored for $27 a bottle. Stuff is rare and that price! Also mynew fave is Plantation Barbados variety.

For me, the "most used" award goes to Mount Gay Eclipse Silver.

Sensational! for the anchor in a Cuba Libre...

For $9.99 for a fifth at Trader Joes I have to say that Gosling's Gold is my frequent flyer favorite.

My new favorite Navy Grog is equal parts of the following:
(this one has been re-named the Tobunga Soaker)

Lime Juice
Grapefruit Juice
Falernum (homemade)
Rum Barbancourt 8 YO
Saint James Amber
Lemon Hart (regular not high-octane)

Stir in crushed ice until frosty and enjoy.

While he is over the top in his dislike for it. He is absolutely correct that they are the same rum with different labels. Over the years, this product has been through several different blends. But, at any given time, it is bottled, then, labels are applied "Rum" or "Brandy" depending on the market and laws. I have been to the distillery 4 times and have seen the operation. BTW, notice that it is no longer promoted on their website.

Picked up some Pyrat XO today, and made some Voo Doo Juice with it. Quite good. I found a place that sells if for $17.99 per 750ml. Is that pretty much on par with the rest of the country? They were also selling Captain Morgan Private Reserve for the same price. May have to pick some of that up tomorrow

I love VooDoo Spiced Rum--I lived in Petaluma for years and worked in a bar there and I know one of the owners. Many years ago even made up drinks, promos and specials for our bar to promote it and everything--to me it's so much smoother than Captain and, what can I say-it's my hometown rum!
100% aged Virgin Island Rum!

The new Jolly Roger Coconut & Key Lime Rum is out, but I have yet to try that--I'm sure it will be pretty sweet-but worth a try!



IMO Sailor Jerry is harsh and like someone else said--the packaging is the best feature.

My favorite rum is "Brinley's Gold Coconut ' it makes the best tropical drinks I have ever tasted. Float a little Myers dark rum on top it'll make your tropical drink just right....

We're fond of the Brinley Gold Vanilla but it never makes it into a cocktail, we just drink it straight.

Well, I would have to vote for Barbancourt 5 star from Haiti. Made the old fashioned way, tastes like rum should. I've tried most every rum made in the islands, and Barbancourt is the one!!! Of course, we drink it with just a twist of lime and ice. However it makes the best "Dark and Stormy" if you mix it with "Barretts Ginger Beer".
