The AC went out on my truck again so I spent about an hour in Liquor Barn today. (multiple location across the state Wal-Mart sized Liquor stores.. Gotta website and the whole nine yards..). I was thinking the exact same thing.. Not long ago Appleton Estates was the top of top shelf... Now granted I haven't tried any of the New stuff but I verify what your saying...And if price tag is any indicator (it isn't ) appleton has some serious competition.


As you may have guessed I'm an Appleton fan boy.. I seldom drink anymore.. But if I do you can just about put your money on it.. Its Appleton. Unless of course its a Martini or Margarita.. Rum wouldn't make much sense in that case huh...lol.

For a cheap decently-priced rum, for mixing etc, I usually go for Cruzan. Unless it's Dark & Stormy season, in which case it's got to be Gosling's Black Seal. (Lots of my neighbors are of Carribean origin, so proper ginger beer is usually in the supermarket.)

When I want to indulge a little more, I like Pusser's Navy Rum. The proceeds still go to the Old Sailors' Home (UK), so I'm just doing charity work like any decent fellow would. Cool

Yesterday when I dropped by Green's Discount Liquors in Greenville, SC I too was surprised by the number of new rums available on the shelves. Unfortunately they didn't have any Screech from Newfoundland which I really enjoyed on a hunting trip there several years ago.

Anyway, the darker rums are more appealing to me with Myers Dark or Bacardi Anejo hecho in Mexico being my favorites. For an amber rum, Mt. Gay is what I usually buy.

In the summer I'll make a Cuba Libre with Mt. Gay or a Hemingway Daiquiri (grapefruit juice w/lime splash on crushed ice) with Myers Dark. During the winter I like hot chocolate with Bacardi Anejo. Though I haven't made it in a while, a good recipe I learned from merchant in Charlotte Amalie consisted of a 32 oz. can of Hawaiian Punch, 8 oz. of orange juice, and the juice of one lemon and one lime, topped with a bottle of rum.

For years I drank Myer's dark. For the last 10 it's been primarily Gosling's Black Seal--great taste and cheap! Cruzan is nice and I went through a bottle of Appleton's awfully fast last year. Had a bottle of Anejo that was pretty smooth. I drink rum with an ice cube. If a spirit needs something else to be drinkable, I probably should not drink it.

Looks like two of the BoB's will be drinking together, in states that look the same, several hundred miles apart... Sailor Jerry it is...

Is spiced rum good in coke?

Never tried it with coke, but it could probably work.
I like mine with a couple cubes of ice and a bit of water. 50/50 rum & water, stir the cubes in till it's chilled and sip away. Rum anyone? Drunken_smilie

I've done about 40+ years of research and travel throughout the Caribbean and Central America, and everyone produces rum, and it's all good! I've never seen 10% of what's out there in any U.S. liquor store. My all-time favorite was from Guyana, called Five Star, cost about 85 cents a quart back in the early 90s.

I have been on a rum kick all summer drinking Mohitos. I stumbled into the spiced rums looking for variety and found Sailor Jerry's and a very interesting new dark spiced rum called Kraken which was mighty good. I like Sailor Jerry's but it has too much vanilla for my taste. The Kraken is ink black and quite flavorful. I've had it on the rocks but I had made some "dirty" Mohitos and fell in love.

I cheat and make up a mint infused simple syrup for my mohitos to save the muddling of the lime, fresh mint and sugar. I do 1/1 sugar and water bring to boil, turn off heat and add chopped mint and allow to steep until cool, strain, then refridgerate. For use w/ the Kraken I sub. dark brown sugar mmm cyclops

Tall glass w/ ice-build
1 shot lime juice
1.5 shot mint syrup
2 shot rum
top w/ club soda
stir/shake
garnish w/ fresh mint leaves

When I go on vacation in the British Virgin Islands, my coveted Pina Colada is made with various rums and usually the same mix ( Island Oasis ) and it's hard to beat Meyers Original Dark Rum. bounce

Kraken is a good rum and along the same lines as Cpt Morgan and Sailor Jerry.
For pure sipping rum, I tried a bottle of Zaya Gran Reserva (12 year old) and was very impressed how smooth it is (and easy on the wallet) - about $25-$30 per bottle

My liquor choices depend on the season and climate. For the temperate zone of the northern hemisphere, August through December is when I drink rum.

I don't know if I have an all-time favorite, but like Natch, one of the best rums I ever had was from Guyana. In this case, it was a brand called Lemon Hart. Other brands that have done well by me are Pyrat and Gosling. For flavored rums, I go with Admiral Nelson over Malibu or Captain Morgan, and it's usually cheaper than either of them. Finally, I picked up a halfway-decent dark rum from India called Old Monk back in early spring, and made it through the bottle while watching the matches of the Cricket World Cup.

For the record, someone who prefers the drier rums is probably not going to get a lot of satisfaction from my selections.
