Well, I remember a while back when people were discussing their favorite rums, some people said that their favorite kind was "free" rum, and some suggested that in cocktails you can't tell the difference so much.
Well, I knew the folks were joking, but I had experienced first hand how another brand of rum completely changes the taste of the cocktail:
I made a round of Chief Lapu Lapu's (not a very strong dring) and I used the last ounces of Baccardi Reserve Light and Dark that I had.
Then, for the next round I used the Myers's I made the guests bring...and WOW! what a difference in taste! It suddenly made the drink something completely different.
I remember reading somewhere here that Baccardi made their rums more neutral tasting, and this really proved that. Hey - I don't care, as the Myers's is cheaper than the Baccardi ($27 Vs $37.50).
I also made the guests bring Havana Club to substitute for the light rum, but I did not get to try another Chief Lapu Lapu with the Cuban and the Myers's together...Hey, that's a good enough excuse to try it tonight!

(and I would like to use this opportunity to thank Beachbum Berry again for his great books!)
