I've had my eye on this cool looking Rum at my local liquor store for quite some time....




It's Bamboo!! And it's called Jolly Rodger, with a cool Skull and Crossbones on the label, plus it says it's 10 y.o. Jamaican Rum. Being a sucker for anything Bamboo OR Pirate-related, it's a wonder I was able to resist for so long.

Anyway, I bought it yesterday, and while it looks cool, this stuff is AWFUL!! I don't know how it could possibly be what it says it is. Granted, it's not incredibly harsh, but I swear there's this really sweet aftertaste that reminds me of either Bubblegum, or kids' toothpaste. It's miserable, and it cost me twenty bucks. =(

Anyone else ever get sucked in by this bottle? Any suggestions to try it with? I tried it in a Mai Tai, and it was just about undrinkable. At least I have the decanter, I guess...if I can manage to choke the rum down, I can rinse and refill it, I suppose.

Cool bottle. I would have bought it too. Maybe its 10 yr old because noone would drink it?

Ha! Of course just dumping out the rum to reuse the decanter is not an option. I suppose bad rum is better than no rum.

The best way to get rid of it is to make a big rum punch bowl at the next party you attend.
