A warning regarding my earlier comment about generic rum. Don't overdo it, as it packs a stronger hangover than name brand rum. Boy, do you find THAT out the hard way!

Of course, if you drink responsibly, you'll be fine.

I found this older thread and wanted to add a few to the list.

Brugal Anejo is usually rated among the top ten by the people who do such things.

For the price - it's my personal favorite and makes a terrific scorpion, mai tai... heck, all of it.

I have an affinity for Pusser's - the stronger one - since I got these nifty little tin cups from the factory store in Tortola.

The Coyopa isn't bad - but you're paying for that cool bottle that plays a video thingy on the label with some island music. I mean, you gotta have that in the bar even if you fill it with hooch.

It's smooth, though - the Coyopa - and places high in the tastings we have here at The Lagoon.

Thanks for the tips on Havana Club, I have a buddy who gets Cuban merchandise here in Tampa and has children that I can take hostage 'til he delivers.

Arrrrr.

Anyone tried the Cohiba Rum?

Appleton XV for $13? Not bad. It usually sells for $18 to $20 here at regular retail, so you got a good price!

Pablus: I've seen both the light and dark
Cohiba Rums at one of my nearby Hoity Toity Cigar shops (in Fashion Island!, now how HT is that!?). Anyway, the shop owner raved about it, of course, but I haven't run into anyone that's actually tried it. I believe it was about a $35 or $40 bottle (girl not included..at least not at that price.)

Whoa!!!! I bought a bottle of Cohiba gold rum in San Jose last year for $11! Don't be fooled by the name. It's a decent gold rum, better than Bacardi, but nothing too special. I'll pour you some the next time your up and you can see for yourself. Don't spend that much! Take that cash and buy some single barrel Cruzan instead! Or anything else!

Not really a big deal, but I got back from France last week, and I picked up an amber Rhum St James, haven't tried it yet. I also saw Havana Club, that I considered picking up, so I can officially call my self a smuggler. I did see other Martinique rums that I've never seen before. I would of gotten it if my suitcase wasn't full of Alsatian wine.

I came across this rum by accident when I was touring the French Polynesian islands.
On the island of Marie Galante, the intire economy is based on sugar cane.

It's called Bielle Rhum Vieux
A French rum only available in a few cases of this eight-year-old rum are bottled so it is not always available.It's a full flavored rum that has been distilled and aged at a small distillery where quality is still the most important product.

Appleton VX is great for mixing but try the Extra for sipping. It's oustanding. Martiki mentioned the Cruzan Single Barrel - another great award-winning rum for sipping.

Some that are high on my list to try are Ron Zacapa Centenario and R.L. Seales Old Brigand black label. Anyone tried these?

Since I can't have alcohol, I couldn't live without Nature's Flavors Rum Syrup! I even pestered the company's owner enough to have them begin removing the brown color from the rum and make it a simple clear syrup. No more ugly, muddy (but incredibly delicious) Tiki mocktails!

I just bought it (Cruzan Single Barrel) and tried it. Another great TC suggestion and another great addition to Unga's rum library.

Yeah, I agree with TheJab's recommendations. He's like my own Roger Ebert of liquor...except TheJab is taller, weighs less and has better (and more) hair than Roger.



BK: How does the El Dorado Demerara compare to Lemon Hart Demerara? Stronger? Milder? Price difference?

A lot more vivid, at least the 12 year stuff. It's so good that when you open a bottle you can smell the spicy, fruity aroma across a room. I wouldn't press the issue on the 4-year.
