TofuJoe and I have have batted around an idea for the last couple of years and we have decided this is the year to try it out. We are always looking for new rums (and other alcohols to try) and it always seems you find the best ones through word of mouth. So, Friday @ 4pm in the NorCal suite (Room 1849) we are inviting you to bring a full bottle of your favorite rum (or gin, vodka, etc.) to share and a cup for your own use.

We will have each person say a few words about why they like this particular rum they brought (plus any info on origin, taste, what drinks they like it in, etc.) and then each person gets a taste (bring your own cup for tasting).

If you are interested in this tasting please post what you are planning on bringing.

Bringing a bottle is required to participate!

Well, it's not rum, but I plan to bring a bottle of Domaine de Canton Ginger & Cognac Liqueur if I can get my hands on one by then.

Awesome, Nelva! Great choice, btw. We'll see you in Suite 1849, where... They're coming to get you, Nelva! To, uh, drink your rum.

its not super expensive but sometimes hard to find,
I will bring a bottle of Macombo dark rum from Mexico.
supposedly its one of the few last rums to be made the mexican way, and not the cuban way in mexico,
good dark rum, not syrupy or carmely great for sipping or mixing,
I get mine at Hi time,
hopefully they will have some.

BTD -- I just polished off a bottle of that at home! The packaging on that one is really cool.

D#%^! That's during the time we are hosting our room crawl! Wish we could make it. Rum tastings are one of our favorite things. Hope you all (including Martin and Scott) drop by our party before/after theirs.

I've decided to bring a bottle of rum I've never tried before.

And on further review:
I have a half bottle of Diplomatico Reserva which I'll bring so we can try it side by side with the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. I find this comparison rather interesting.

And maybe something else. Not quite sure yet.

Looking forward to this.

This sounds like fun. Though I am not nearly as rum saavy the other participants, my hat's in the ring.
I am planning on bringing a bottle I received as a gift and have never tasted. It could be shit, I dunno. It is called Starr. It is from Mauritius. The bottle says "Ultra Superior Light African Rum". As I said, could be shit.
