Crazy people

White rum is so fantastic. That is, Agricole White rum of course.

You can really taste differences between all the martinique and guadeloupe rums. Some are very floral, some taste like banana, there's the blue cane that is wonderful, and I probably buy more white than amber, as I drink a lot of ti-punch (best white rum you can get with a 1/4 of lime and a dash of sugar syrup, no ice), it's the best easy apetizer to make before dinner.

Although, I agree, it doesn't really fit in tiki drinks.

Anyone bashing white rum hasn't tried Treaty Oak Platinum, a small batch rum distilled domestically in Austin, TX USA of all places. Outstanding stuff that is as enjoyable neat as it is mixed. It's filtered through carbonized coconut shells and tastes like spiced Christmas cookies. 9/51 drinks in my upcoming second cocktail book call for Treaty Oak Platinum by name.

Here's Treaty Oak's website:

And here's the only place you can buy it online so far (near the bottom):

Virani-

we have three new Martinique brands at my neighborhood store-- Dillon, Rancado, and Negrita Bardinet.

Do you recommend any of them?

Dillon is good. Not the best, but a good white rum.
Rancado ? Are you sure that's a Martinique rum ? I've never heard of it.
Negrita is the worst rum ever. Don't take it, or just for cooking.

my mistake, you're right, the Rancado is not Matinique. it's a white "West Caribbean" rum bottled in Germany (!)

thanks for the insight on the other two.
