interesting, but I like a light rum more than a strong flavored one.
Here's a big hint for you on where to take your love of Rum.
Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum is fermented and aged in oak casks. That's why, if you drink it straight or on the rocks, it has a very earthy aftertaste.
Trout fillet, poached in captain and an earthy white wine, placed on a plank of well-cleaned, sanded smooth white oak, service-side up. Put plank and trout in a stone oven and bake. Use a spray bottle to quench the wood if it starts smoking -too- much.
There are a hundred other things I can think of, just off the top of my head, to do with Captain that don't even begin to have anything to do with DRINKING it. Captain Spiced is a miracle the Jamaicans granted the rest of the world. See what kind of crazy things you can do with it!

Anyway, O.P rum and cloves used to be very popular here in OZ. It was the best way to get rid of a head cold. 1 nip of rum with about 1/2 a capful of cloves cordial. We can't buy the clove cordial here but may be available elswhere.
