Sounds like you're off to a good start to enjoying some better rums.

Thumbs up Rum-bhakts at Rum-mandir

Loosely translated to mean .. Rum-devotees at Rum-temple.
The Rum-mandir dates back to the late seventies, in the Hindi-heartland of India. Bunch of guys, away from home, living in the coal-fields of a tribal belt, would get back from work .. And turn to good ol' rum for warmth and succour. After a classic rum aur pani ( rum n water ), we would hit the harmonium, dholak and burst into songs .. some in praise of The Lord, some more earthy, some sensuous and some just whatever.
The only conditions .. Rum, song, dance, more rum, and sleep.
We came to be known as Rum-bhakts (we saw it in good light .. Totally missing the possible resonance with Kambhakt (Urdu in origin meaning someone with less good fortune, literally someone unfortunate, wretched).
We didn't know, we didn't care.
What mattered was only-rum .. And we were proud rum-bhakts.

Hello,
I found this site while researching Caribbean rums. My wife and I just returned from the region. While there we got the chance to visit some distilleries. I was pleasantly surprised by the flavors. I had usually only drank rum with mixers. In the past I've enjoyed bourbons as a straight libation. Ah, retirement is really starting to look up.

Default Hello from Greece

Hi there.

I come from Thessaloniki, a town at the north of Greece.
I started my "journey" into the rum just a few months ago (3 or so) and I find this new interrest exciting.
Despite the economic crisis of my country I managed to get about 18 bottles of different brands and types of rum and now I'm broke (hehe).
Anyway I will keep on and I hope through this site to find information and share experiences.
It is the first time that I am registered in a forum of any kind, so forgive me for any possible technical mistakes and of course for my poor English.
I'm waiting to be accepted to this forum....

Cheers,

John

Hi I am Georgi, I drank rum occasionally until a year ago. After that I run on a small collection a colleague of mine had and after that is history. I started buying and experimenting along with a cigar or two.

Cheers !

If I allowed any member to message everyone I'd lose a lot of members.
