I love rum. Rummy, rum, rum. Rum for me, rum for you, but mostly rum for me. Years ago, my friend Keith Waldbauer helped to create an obsessed monster while he was tending bar at Union. Then by the power of the interwebs and Tales of the Cocktail I met other like minded folks like Matt Robold, Blair Reynolds, and Craig Hermann. We waxed poetic over rum and intense geekery. Make no mistake, if you care enough about anything to blog about it, you are a geek. After all, if you just liked something, or were normal, would you take the time to write about it, take pictures and make sure people knew what the hell your opinion was about it? Nope, didn’t think so.
So, I’m nuts about rum. That isn’t to say that I don’t love other spirits, I just have an unabashed favourite spirit. Dark rum, light rum, rum industrial, rhum agricole, old rum, young rum, spiced rum, dry rum, sweet rum, thick rum, thin rum, really old rum, really really old rum, rum, rum, rum, rum, rum I will drink it all and chances are I will enjoy it. So to spread the gospel of rum, welcome to my first review of a rum.
