I know that there are different rums for different drinks, but on the whole what would be the one rum you just could not live without. Either a favorite or most used rum.

Thank U, Drive Thru

It would depend on what I was making. We go through a lot of Bacardi gold and silver for mixed, bacardi 8 for highballs, Bacardi Solara 1878 or Pyrate for sipping.

My favorite rum has got to be the Appleton Estate in the fancy bottle - still haven't had the extra cash to shell out for the Appleton 21 year-old stuff but, it's got to be good.

I used to go through a lot of Bacardi silver and Captain Morgan for making cocktails but ever since I bought the Grog Log and Intoxica that has changed - I am in the process of tracking down the various rums mentioned in the books and plan on recreating the recipes exactly as printed from now on - I just got my special order for Lemon Hart Demarara today...got my eye on the Rhum Barbancourt next!

Lately, I've been digging the Ron Anejo Anniversario Pampero rum. This stuff is hard to get, though.

Someone mentioned Appleton - that's good too. I want to say that Trader Vic used rum from a brand that was eventually absorbed by the Appleton estate, so Appleton seems closest to what Vic used.

Demarara(sp?) is a fave.

Sailor Jerry Rum has that cool Hula Girl on the bottle, so it looks good in the Tiki Bar...

Not big on rum, but my favorite island drink would have to be a Scorpion, The Hale Hawaii in Torrance makes the best around.

My favorite Rum?. The one that comes in a bottle and mixes well with coke. I agree with The Jab, that list is some good stuff.

If it comes in a plastic bottle, that's great. No, but really I would have to say Habana Club.

Cockspur is an excellent golden rum with a mellow flavor that's good enough to drink straight. For dark rum I love the surprisingly inexpensive Saratoga ($10 in Wash.). It's smooth and has a deep, complex, spicy flavor that blends beautifully with tropical juices (Saratoga and pineapple juice is great). If cooking/baking I recommend Meyer's. It stands up to the heat and you can really taste a true rum flavor in whatever it's used in.

very nice poll. quite fitting for the myriad of tropical drinks that rum is the staple.

myers for the drinks
goslings for sipping
brother's overproof for getting crazy (plus it is only 4 bones/750 ml in BVI)

pusser's for ....what else... painkillers to nurse that tropical hangover

Koko Kanu coconut rum. Straight up, straight from the freezer (purists will no doubt heave at the very thought). I don't normally have a sweet tooth, but this stuff is nectar. I used to have to buy crates of it from the importers (Wray & Nephew) but you can buy it in a couple of places in London now. Otherwise - the Havana Club (3yo if I can get it) is what goes in my Mojito Royales.

I dunno...call me a purist, but to me there's sipping rum and mixing rum....And I wouldn't waste a good, say, Appleton Estate in a Scorpion Bowl...If I had a lifetime supply of one rum....it's probably be Myer's Dark...To me it goes best with Coke, Fruit juices...Hot Buttered Rum...Toddies...desserts, etc....Grey

Sipping: Pyrat XO, Cruzan Single Barrel Estate, Barbancourt Aged.
I actually thought the Appleton 21 year was a little harsh and a pinch overrated when I tried it in the islands. The Havana Club 7 is pretty good as well.

Mixer: Nothing wrong with Bacardi, but if you were at my party, you saw that I pour the good stuff when called for. (Lemon Hart regular and 151, Rhum St. James, Appleton Estate, etc.)
