I hope you'll forgive the somewhat self-indulgent nature of this thread. But I thought some folks might find it useful.

I'll keep it updated with the rums I review. I hope you'll share your thoughts. (And I hope I've learned something along the way.)

David, great idea, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your reviews. We TC'ers can't go out and buy up "one of everything" so these reviews are really helpful.

Thanks, Ace. I need to make an effort to review more rum on the site. I cover all spirits, so I have to divide my time... But still. It's rum!

I must have missed your first post highlighting you did reviews but agree with your comments about Damoiseau Rhum VSOP - I only tried a taster last week & your review of it neat is spot on (which makes me wish I'd tried it out mixing it).

Also, I agree Ron Zacapa 23 is an unexpected good addition to a mai tai!

Cheers

Thanks A!

I put this stuff out there, but I sometimes wonder if anyone agrees or if I'm just full of it.

Agree it works wonderfully in a Mai Tai. And is excellent neat. Think I'll experiment with it a little more tonight.

Speaking of books on The Zombie...

You really should share...

Thanks, Oxy. As I recall, you write a very nice review of the book on Amazon. Much appreciated!

Mr Professor ,

Nice review on the Rums.

I found that the Papa’s Pilar Dark Rum was way underwhelming and a ripoff at the price I paid for it.

Also too, spiced rum, I cringe every time I see a bottle of the stuff, strictly for Squares.

Thanks!

I never drink spiced rum. Don't really seem the point. But if people enjoy it, more power to 'em.

you can't beat spiced rum for the Christmas eggnog.

and some of them compliment the vanilla-centric flavors of coca-cola in a Cuba Libre.

but other than that, ugghh...
