You mixing it with Coke? it's good. I think I like Sailor Jerry spiced rum more though.

My wife likes it but I am kinda “Meh” about it. I like good sipping rums neat or on the rocks and this is not one for that

There are very, very few rums that taste good just on the rocks.

This statement is absurd. There are many fine sipping rums you have yet to experience. In the islands last week I was sipping
El Dorado 15 year old rum from Guyana that was amazing. I could give you a dozen other examples but I won’t.

I enjoy sipping rum neat. While I haven't tried the Kraken yet, for dark rum I like the Gosling's Black Seal. It rates a solid 6.6 in the rum ratings and is an undeniable bargain from a price point of view. Lately I've been enjoying some 15 year old Barbancourt. Found some in a liquor store and bought every bottle they had. First time in my life I've ever used a basket in a liquor store. Very smooth stuff.

Kraken is one of my favorite air racing teams. Guess what their favorite rum is....

The blond is outstanding on the rocks. Made by the Hemingway family and profits go to charity like Newman.





My favorite is Ron Zacapa



THE best IMHO



And please no coke

Yea, ok. It’s incredible how you profess to know all yet know nothing.

LOL, On the label on the Zacapa it says "May be enjoyed with up to 1 ice cube"
