Default Drunkin Pineapple

Question for the experts...

What would be the best rum to use to marinate pineapple in? We will be eating the pieces as a party appetizer of sorts.

I have the following that I need to finish off:
Sailor Jerry's
Depaz Blue Cane
Appleton Reserve
Pusser's Blue Label
Gosling's Black Seal
Cachaca 51

I would prefer to use one of the above, but am not adverse to running to the store to get a new bottle.

I like the Sailor Jerry for marinading pineapple...has flavors of cherry and cinnamon and it costs less than the other listed. The Black Seal may be a little to bold molasssas flavor for the pineapple. Just my take. Hope you have a great holiday weekend.

My vote would be for the Pusser's; only because of its complimentary nature to pineapple in a Painkiller.

Let us know what you ultimately go for....(even better pick a couple rums to dunk and let us know what your guests opinion's are.)

I've often used a combination: Gosling's, Wood's 100 or some black strap balanced with a good gold rum like El DOrado 5 or Cruzan Dark. Enough of the rich dark rums to add flavor and enough of the gold to get it punchy. A spiced rum like Sailor Jerry is an excellent choice.

Thanks for the recommendations. Verdict:

I made 2 batches, 1 with Sailor Jerry's, the other with the left over Pusser's. I must say they were both excellent in their own way. I cut the one's soaked in Sailor Jerry's into chunks for pre-BBQ nibbles (big hit and didn't last very long). The flavors in the spiced rum really came out in a mild way after 24 hours of soaking. Slight hint of alcohol when swallowed, but very smooth and flavorful. I cut the Pusser's one into rings and grilled them. They were also a hit, and disappeared quickly. Bottom line, I would recommend either rum for this. I will definitely have to experiment more with different rums.

What was really good, was using the leftover rum that hadn't been absorbed by the pineapple in a drink. I personally used half leftover rum, half coconut water, and a squeeze of lime. Very refreshing, may be worth it to marinate pineapple more frequently just to get the flavor of the leftover rum.

the left over rum from soaking is a greatly appreciate prize here as well. It takes on a wonderful flavor and you can't go wrong mixing it.

Hey guy I don't if this qualifies as a Drunkin Pina Colada but I soaked some fresh slice pineapples in Ron Ricardo Coconut rum (was inspired by this thread to experiment) and it was great.

Just got a bottle of the Ricardo Coconut last week. Guess that will be next for the Drunkin' Pineapple taste test. Sounds like a winner Did you use the left over rum in a particular drink? Pineapple infused coconut rum, that could be a great base for many tropical drinks, time to start trying them out

Did you purchase the Ricardo rum in Maryland? I know that bigsky is looking to purchase Ron Ricardo in USA.

Enjoy the Dunkin Pina Colada

No, my buddy just came back from the Bahamas and picked a bottle up for me. I had requested from the forum good rums to pick up from there, gave him a list, and he brought me back the Ricardo. I had some more preferred rums on my list, but, beggers can't be choosers. Besides, everyone says the Ricardo is probably the best Coconut Rum out there, I am a fan of coconut rums (especially in Coke), so I am good with getting a bottle from my friends trip.
