Default Hello from Ontario

Hello one and all,

I stumbled accross this forum led by the curiosity of rum. I would say that rum is my preffered spirit and I have a strong interest in it's history and culture. I would say I am a novice, having only tasted a few rums with the weight of my experiences lying with Appleton Estates, however I hope to boraden my horrizons and establish a nice rum collection.

I enjoy rum best neat or on the rocks and as we speak I am enjoying an Appletons' Estate 12 year. Having travelled to Jamaica, the Carribean is the place for me and with it all the liquid gold they call rum. It is with the hope of joining this forum I can learn more about rums, its history and about the people who enjoy it.

Rum aside, I live here in Ontario, Canada. I enjoy nature and hiking, kyaking, snorkleing, snowboarding and the great American sport of Football. A native of Halifax, Nova Scotia I have a love for the sea, tall ships and its deep history.

So here's a glass of Appleton's 12 year and many more rums to come.

Hello Chris and evereyone else

I am also a new member, I was born in Barbados and have been living in England /Canada since 1957/75. As a west indian i am a rum person having tasted some of the best. Right now, I have a bottle of Mount Gay Tri-Centenial Rum. I had two bottles but was forced to sample one.

I am a retired Police Officer from Toronto and reside here in the Summer months then head south to Barbados for the Winter

Looking forward to having a few with one and all and as we say in Barbados, "Fire One"
