I haven't had the El Dorado Spice Rum but the Cuba Libre spiced rum was selected by the restaurant, not El Dorado. To each his own.

Okay! Just got to try the El Dorado Spiced Rum, and it's perfectly lovely. It's got balance.

For the exact same money as Captain Morgan, you can get a better spiced rum at a higher, and more traditional, proof (80-pf). I hate paying for more water in my spirits, don't you?

Sounds like something worth trying. I am always amazed when liquor stores are selling Captain Morgan (I guess the price set by the company) for anywhere between $ and $6 more than rums that I know are better quality and overall better rum. For example, I just picked up the new Cruzan 9 for $19.99, Captain Morgan was $26.99.

I can tell you that El Dorado Spiced Rum goes very well with Mexican Coca-Cola (made with cane sugar, not HFCS) and lime juice

Color me unsurprised

Lucky people in New Brunswick. I'd be interested in reading your take on this new spiced rum.
