I'm slowly building an arsenal, but the problem is that I'm wiping out bottles before I can get the shelf full. Not too bad of a problem to have, I'd say.

Currently, I'm sporting:
Lemon Hart Demerara 80
Lemon Hart Demerara 151
Cockspur 12 yr
Appleton V/X
Gosling's Black Seal
Sailor Jerry
Myers's Dark
Cruzan Estate Light
Trader Vic's Coconut (for flavoring)

I knew I was keeping count for some reason. After the recent acquisition of 8-year-old Plantation Jamaican, I'm now up to 47.

(A timely aside: I was asked to procure three more bottles of the Plantation for Beachbum Berry's upcoming mixology lesson at The Hukilau in Fort Lauderdale ... The June 12 seminar at the Mai-Kai should prove to be quite enlightening.)

Below is the main working bar area. Nothing too esoteric, just all the necessary mixers to make 185 drinks from the Bum's books plus 70 from Trader Vic and 100+ other classics. I'd list all the rums but a few at the bottom end may be a bit embarrassing. I guess I'm keeping them merely to pad my total.

Hi, I have amassed a decent collection, although there are still several rums that I want to add.

Appleton 12yr
Appleton White
Appleton X/V
Bacardi 151
Brugal Anejo
Brugal White
Coruba Jamaican Rum
Cruzan 151 Rum
Cruzan Black Strap Navy Rum
El Dorado Demerara 15yr
El Dorado Demerara 5yr
El Dorado Demerara Gold
Flor de Cana Centenario 12 year
Flor De Cana Gold 4yr
Gosling Black Seal
Gosling Black Seal 151
La Favorite Rhum Agricole Ambre
La Favorite Rhum Agricole Blanc
La Favorite Rhum Agricole Vieux
Lemon Hart Demerara 15yr
Lemon Hart Demerara 5yr
Mont Gay Eclipse Gold
Neisson Rhum Agricole Blanc
Neisson Rhum Agricole Élevé Sous Bois
Neisson Rhum Agricole Réserve Spéciale
Pusser’s Navy Rum Blue Label
Ron Del Barrilito 3 Star Rum
Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 year Solera Rum
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
Stroh 160 proof Rum
Ypioca Cachaca

Alright, in all fairness the last two aren't rums!

I have to say that of all the rums that I own, the Ron Del Barrilito 3 Star is one of my favorites. It is a very elegant style of rum, with a cognac-like flavour and style.it's best enjoyed straight and room temperature in a snifter.

Hinano_Paul is currently on Rum restriction. After helping to catalog all of the rum throughout the house, Hinano_Paul may no longer go to any store containing alcohol, especially Hi Times, until further notice.

Ah, come on, Mrs. Lurker, you can NEVER, EVER have enough Rum in the house!!!!!

Oh, and won;t 1/2 of that be gone when Rugbymatt visits in a couple weeks?? I think he's just the guy to effectively take care of your rum "problem"

Um, 15. That's more than needed. That includes a few that are never used like my vintage bottle of Trader Vic's Flaming Rum. I was surprised I had that may varieties really.

Lemon Hart 151 & 80
St. James Ambre and H'ors D'age
Bacardi 151
Pusser's
Plantation Barbados
Myers
Appleton VX
Appleton Gold
Some white, probably Ron Rico
TV Flaming Rum
Ron Pompero Anniversario
Some 20 YO Mexican Rum in a cool bottle
Leilani Hawaiian Rum sealed bottle

Oh yeah, and an El Do 12 year, that's 16.

Pikey's, how is that Wood's Old Navy Demarara regarded in England? Do folks appreciate it, or is it seen as old style gut rot? I love that stuff.
