The title of this thread does not refer to rums MADE in Europe, but to rums AVAILABLE in Europe - which is a fact that is of some solace to me when I am on extended Foreign Legion duty on that continent.
The American rum market, though growing with new rum brands, is still quite limited compared to what is out there in the world, so I take advantage of being able to try out new labels whenever I am working here. There are many more Demeraras in existence for example, as I have mentioned here...
I always end up having to watch my intake because there are so many yummy options, especially since I lately have been partial to sipping Agricole rhums, like this fine Trois Rivieres...
...while this Cuban and the XM Royal Demerara are very palatable also! Adding to my conund-rum (excuse the pun) is the fact that the Sushi restaurant at my street corner recently installed a rum bar...
... with a menu offering more than 60 varieties of the cane juice...
...from all the rum-producing regions of the world.
The only thing that will keep me from becoming a total rummy are their prices (in Euro!)
I still could not resist some of these sweeter temptations from Austria and Italy:
