'Newbie' to Rum

Recommended Posts

Yah, Pina Coladas were a huge failure...

Couldnt find Coconut Cream, so I used Coconut Milk...Couldnt find fresh pinapple juice, so I used pinapple chunks...

Tasted awfull!

At least I had a bit of this El Dorado rum afterward, that kinda made up for it

Bill, I've tried the Flor de Cana 7 y/o and the 12 y/o but didn't care much for either one of them.

Sadistick, too bad about your Pina Coladas. Try again! If you can possibly get your hands on a bottle of Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 y/o, then try it. We here in Florida can buy it for about $40 a bottle. Here's a website where you can learn more about it: http://www.ronzacapacentenario.com/

By the way, is it legal for someone to mail rum from the U.S. to Canada? If so then I'd be glad to send you a bottle Sadistick, for the cost of the rum and shipping.

Just wondering if I should use this for Pina Coladas tonight, or some regular old Bacardi...

Um... Don't waste good rum on drinks! Good rums are meant to be drunk neat.

Hear, hear! (For mixers, use Appleton Gold, Mount Gay, or another General Market rum. Indeed, don't use Premium and Ltd. Edition rum for mixing.)

I also like to drink a GOOD RUM neat, to go along with my Rum and Coke. :biggrin:

Hey Luna!

I have no idea if it is legal, I dont see why not, thanks very much for the offer, if you can get an approx idea how much it would be to send it to Toronto, Ontario that would be fantastic.

Cheers

Dude, of course it's not legal! YOU LIVE IN CANADA! (Actually, it's probably not even legal to mail it from one state to another). 'Cause the tax man always needs his cut of the booze action.

If you really want it, the LCBO may be able to order it for you. Or try Buffalo.
