There are a few on the list -- the cheap Bacardi, the Sergeant Classick come to mind -- that I wouldn't drink except under extraordinary circumstances. But I hate pouring our booze. I always figure I can serve them in a punch of something.




Echoing the sentiments of others here — Awesome rum collection! At my peak I had about half of that and I think even that had me wife considering a divorce!

Although I haven't yet tried the Sergeant Classick light, the Classick Gold makes en excellent and what I believe to be an historically accurate pirate's
Bumbo (rum, a splash of water, grated nutmeg, cinnamon, etc.). Most of the Caribbean rum during the golden age of piracy would have been pot stilled but probably not aged for very long. It is actually pretty hard to find an unaged potstill rum, but that is exactly what Sergeant Classic is. Sadly, I am seeing it around these parts less and less, and when I find it it is often on closeout, so I am not sure how the brand is doing overall.

I seldom bother with more than a handful of white rums, but I am curious about the Classick light. djmont, is there any potstill ester funkiness that you can discern when you taste that one neat?

[Apologies for the temporary threadjack of the home bar forum for rum talk. You can now go back to making me jealous with all your great home Tiki sanctuaries!]

I don't know how to tell you this, but someone left a liquor store in your basement. Like the whole store. Fortunately for you, the store had great shelving.



Lol, it was exactly what I was thinking when I saw the pictures, the only thing missing is a checkout stand.

A great job and an impressive rum inventory. Let me know when you are having any clearance sales

I don't recall much about the taste of the Sergreant Classick, other than that I didn't like it. I looked around for the open bottle, but I think I gave it away. I do have an unopened bottle, though, so if I ever open it, I'll try to remember to taste it for you. (I bought two in the first place because it was on clearance. I don't think it's being distributed anymore.)

It is not often one finds an exalted example of clarity and mindful purpose.

The sad part is, none of my friends really drink rum.



Sad? Look at it this way: More Rum for you!!! Happy!!!

Just wondering about the lighting in the photos... is that the way the lighting always looks, or are all lights up to get a good shot of the room? Have you considered adding some fish float lights, or other tiki type lamps? You can then bring down the general lighting and create a really great atmosphere with a moody tiki-bar ambiance!

Of course the lighting as it is now is perfect for a fabulously well-stocked high-end liquor store! (when can we come shopping?)

The lights are up all the way for the pictures. They're on two separate dimmers, so they can be adjusted. I'd like to add some hanging lights, too. Maybe one of these days.
