I enjoy 3-5 a week in smallish doses. Most of the rums I really enjoy are not sold for export, so they are hard to get, thus requiring me to consume in moderation. Even if I could get my hands on more, it would just not make sense to drink too much. Taking your time to sip and relish a fine rum is far better.

Daily. Could be a very small taste, but if there is something good on hand...

Maybe once or twice a week, however, there may be times when I won't drink for weeks at a time. It is just very relaxing. Gone are the days of drinking for the sole purpose of getting drunk. I don't miss those times...especially the next morning.

Besides, if you have a bottle you paid possibly hundreds of $$$'s for, I would hope you are cherishing it and not slamming it like a soda.

Lately, every day. Usually after work, though I do have two bottles at my desk in the office. Sometimes I'll go for a long stretch (months) without a taste of rum, but then I'm having an occasional beer or perhaps a scotch. And it doesn't normally happen, but there are definitely rum parties that see my intake for two weeks or more being consumed in a night!

Had a random wee wee test this morning along with an alcohol swab. Only when I'm off.

It depends a lot on what I have for dinner. If the meal screams out for a good wine, that's what I'll have. Generally, I used to have a beer or two with dinner on other days, but Rum has changed that habit a bit. Now, I tend
to wait until days end when all the chores have been completed to savor a good Rum sipper chased by a good beer (usually a brown ale, porter,
stout, or Belgian ale) to wind things down before hitting the sack. It's a real satisfying way to end the day.

I am primarily a weekend rum drinker. My dosage goes up a little bit in the summer, but I mainly blame that on the sunshine and the pool.
