Well, stop and think. How well do bureaucrats deal with change...
Pussers is OK, but it is way down the list for me for rum.

I'm not criticizing it at all, since I've never had it, but I doubt those sailors had a choice of which rum to drink And I doubt they would have turned down *any* rum

I originally asked the Emroe customer candidate about his opinion of Pusser's to get an indication of whether we might have similar preferences. Since I'm not fond of Pusser's, it makes the Zaya sound more promising.

I'm slightly biased here, but if you enjoy a good 'sipping' rum try Doorlys XO, Mount Gay Extra Old, or St. Nicholas Abbey fine rum, all from Barbados. These are all aged rums, not meant to be mixed, more to be drank neat or on the rocks.

Bit of useless info: Barbados is actually generally regarded as the birth place of rum. George Washington even insisted on a barrel of Barbados rum to be imported for his inauguration.

I still don't have the post count required to post links , but take a look at Wiki's page about rum, it's quite an interesting read.

Thanks for the tip. I'll put it on my list for the next time I go to NH.

I have a buddy who's wife is from Venezuela. When they would go visit her family, he would always bring back a dozen or so bottles of rum and hand them out. I forget what the name was, but it was delicious, dark, sweet, smooth. It made Bacardi taste like formaldehyde, which it basically does anyway!

TropicCh3f, I had St. Nicholas Abbey for the first time in October and loved it. The only problem with this rum is availability. As far as I know, you can only buy it from the distillery in Barbados. It's worth the trip, though!!!

RUM1, you're absolutely right. Each bottle is serial numbered and only available locally. Didn't even think about that.

Appleton estate (Jamaican) also does a 21 year old rum that is good, but again, only a limited number per year and only available (I think) locally.

I just picked up a bottle of this tonight. I got the Pyrat XO Reserve. I did not know Pyrat is made by the makers of Patron.

This is delicious rum. I am drinking it neat and it is very smooth and tasty.
