Hey guys, I’m new to rum. I’ve had a the usual suspects, Bacardi light and dark, 151, Don Q light and dark, Captain, Captain Private Stock,and Sailor Jerry’s. I preferred un-spiced and dark among those. Dark Don-Q was ny favotite.
But I am usually a whisky man. For scotch, I love the heavy, peaty, smoky, briny Islays: Laphroaig, Lagavullin, etc. For boubons, I tend more towards the funky, Knob Creek and Buffalo Trace over the sweeter Woodford Reserve and Eagle Rare. I’m not opposed to rye.
On Monday, I’d like to try out a nice rum or two. Nothing too sweet, please. No syrup. lol. Will be drinking neat, or with water. No soft drinks, but ok with squeezed lime.
I work crazy hours on the weekend, so I most likely will not be replying until Monday, but I will read all responses. I greatly appreciate any input, and the more leads I have to research on Monday, the better.
Thanks y’all, in advance.
