Well, for the longest time I never really found my drink. I've had just about every type of alcohol (except rum until a few months ago) but I finally had some Captain Morgan Private Stock and It's the only thing I enjoy drinking straight. I also got a bottle of Bacardi Select, I can drink it straight but it's one of those "If it's the only thing I got left" things. Since I've been introduced to rum I've been looking in the internet for some quality stuff. I've been eyeing a bottle of Pyrat XO Reserve but I can't decide if I want to take the chance of spending forty some odd dollars on something I might not even like. Anyway, what could you suggest? Lastly, Captain Morgan Private Stock doesn't cost that much and it's my favorite choice right now but how would you rate it compared to lets say Pyrat XO Reserve?
