I'll second that. While I wouldn't take it straight, I dig J Wray Overproof. It has a wonderful banana/fruity smell, and adds a great edge to many cocktails/punches. Recently I made the Appleton Estates punch with one fifth each or Appleton V/X, Coruba and J Wray Overproof, which I heartily recommend. It brings the FUNK

Ill third that

W&N is what it is, a strong white Jamaican rum. It isn't called for & so does not 'fit' tiki recipes but it is a distinctive product that can work well in other cocktails... pour with a light touch & it goes a long way.

I also agree, don't mess with it neat!

I used to keep a list, but I got lazy and stopped updating it. I think I have ~150 or so. Pretty much all the usual suspects. I think I have a picture on here already. Lemme look.

Just updated the rum list for Balhi Ha'i, seems like a good time to share it here. 43 rums, if my quick & sloppy count is accurate.

How to Increase Your Rum Selection In Three Easy Steps:

1. Befriend rum snobs
2. Invite them to parties
3. Profit!

Most of these bottles were received as hostess gifts. I have awesome friends.

That's bloody brilliant.

Alas, I've been doing it exactly backwards: I'M the rum snob that comes 'round bearing the good stuff.

At any rate, I like the idea of doing a menu for my home bar. My wife and those whom I've offsprung will roll their collective eyes in unison, but that's just a side benefit. So, basically, I'm swiping this idea.

Inventory-wise I have -- and since I am going strictly off-memory here, like they say on C-SPAN "I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks." -- the following, in the order in which I remember it:

1- Bacardí Carta Blanca (1.75L, barely 2-3oz left) UPDATED 7/16/14 - FINISHED. Will likely replace it with Barbancourt White, which is an in-all-but-name Rhum Agricole
2- Cruzan Aged Light (1.75L)
3- Tortuga Gold (about ½ of the 750ml) Will likely replace with Chairman's Reserve or Plantation Grand Reserve
4- Bacardí 8
5- Bacardí whatever it is they are calling their "black" rum these days (about ¼ of the bottle left) Will likely replace with Coruba or maybe Kohala Bay if I can dig that up.
6- Flor de Caña 7
7- Flor de Caña 12
8- Doorly XO (2 bottles)
9- El Dorado 5
10- Kirkland (i.e. Costco) Spiced Rum (What? Shut up.)
11- Myers Dark (375ml)
12- Bacardí 151 (to do Beachbum's "switcheroo trick" on cocktails that call for both a silver/gold rum AND LH151)
13- Pampero, whichever one comes in the leather pouch
14- Sta. Teresa (I forget which one, I think "Selecto," the bottle was hideous so I put it in a decanter)
15- Deadhead (which I quite like, incidentally, in the RIGHT cocktail applications)

Here are the 53 different rums & rhums I currently have in my collection. I don't have any friends so I have to buy them myself, but on the up side I get to drink them myself! I've run out of storage space since I have many other spirits besides rum, don't have a bar and try to keep my collection discrete, so further additions will require deletions. As you can see I have stocked up on a few of my favorites that are no longer distributed in the states. I'd like to buy a few more of the Lemon Hart 151 "New Label" while it is still available since nearly every drink I make uses it but that would be difficult for my wife to accept so donations are welcome!
