Default Yuck!!!

So I went to the Salem, NH liquor store yesterday. I picked up a bottle of Clement Premiere Canne Rum for $23, and alot of bottles of Marti Mojito for $12. Well, I also picked up a 1.75l bottle of Zhenka rum for $13. OMFG! The horror of that rum! eek.gif I tried the rum neat, mixed with diet coke, and sprite. This stuff would serve better as a concrete wash rather that an a drinkable rum.
I almost dumped all of it out since it was only $13, but then I thought that someone here might know of a cocktail mix that would totally kill the horrible taste of this rum. Any suggestions?

I won't say I've never bought a rum that wasn't listed in this site's directory, but damn close.

Blackberrys are useful.

Funny thing is, I carry a BB, but never thought to use it to look up a rum before I purchased it
I will certainly bookmark this site on it now though.

I'm working on a new, more handheld friendly site. But I don't have a lot of spare time lately.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
