Thanks for the tip on the new RI offering Scottes. Indeed, what a hotbed for rum New England used to be.

Dogfish head is made a short drive from my house in "slower lower" Delaware. I have tried their Honey Brown and did not care for it at all. To me the clover honey they use in it over powers all the other aromas in there. I was going to give their Whit a try, but I may think twice now. They have come out with a few new rums that are only available from their shop a "Dark Side" another unspiced white rum and several flavored rums which are all 80 proof which may be good.

The Wit Spiced rum sounded great, I had my friend get me a bottle since he was going to be in delaware a couple months back. Im a cilantro nut, so when its tasting notes (written right on the bottle no less) stated a coriander and orange peel spice rum, i simply needed it.

It reminded me a little of the Domaine Charbay from CA, a very harsh almost tequila-esque rum, kind of like a harsh agricole rum. The finish was the only savior, as I did taste the coriander and orange peel. Drinking it was like trekking through hell for a $5 bill.

Default Empire Distilleries in New Port Richie, Florida

Empire makes the Orangela and Lemonela liqueurs (they also made a Key Lime liqueur using molasses based rum) in New Port Richie, Florida. They make wine, a good grappa and other spirits, but if you ever get a chance to snag a bottle of their authentic old world Royal Mead -- enjoy it.

Another Texas Rum to consider:

http://www.railean.com/

They claim to be the "first" or "original" Texas Rum.

Confusing since they advertise being available Dec 2007 and Treaty Oak Rum has been in stores since Sept 2007...

the “First” Texas Rum™ appears to be their trademark. Obviously they were the first to trademark that slogan in Texas, which has little or nothing to do with when they began producing their rum.

But instead of dissecting the marketing claim, I'd rather taste some of this rum!
