    Rum is never a good idea. It might seem like it is at the time. Trust me, it's not.

    Bullshit. It's always a good idea. Even when it may start to seem like a bad idea, it can often be a good idea.

    I gave up on the captain after they started over marketing. Now a Sailor Jerry's fan.

    Don't confuse that with Admiral Nelson...ugh

    Not a rum girl. But vodka and gin? Yes, please.

    Rum is good. So is vodka.

    My guilty pleasure is amarula from south africa. If you can find it.

    I never cared for rum until a friend hipped me to the difference between good rum and the modern American approach to rum, which is mostly as a sweet-neutral mixer.
    I've had some rum I thought was really good. Although I didn't pay attention to get the brand names.
    However, the price isn't in line. It never is with liquor, for the most part.
    For example, I drink bourbon, and I'm not rich.
    Therefore:
    Turkey is 50 percent better than Beam but only 10-15 percent more expensive = good
    Knob Creek (which I really love), Woodford and some others are 10-15 percent better than Turkey but 30-50 percent more expensive = not worth the cost
    There are better bourbons, but there not in my price range.

    i'll second whoever said something about good rum. if you get something like appleton reserve and drink it straight (or rocks) it tastes more like scotch than what we normally think of as rum.

    The best bourbon is Maker's Mark. Doesn't have the burn of others, that use rye wheat, because they use soft red winter wheat.

    Plus, Maker's Mark has the best grounds and tour.

    My wife bought me a bottle of Appleton when we started dating, that was 24 years ago. I still have it, unopened
