Why not gently introduce her to the rum-trap and then one day..she´ll want to collect rums herself..hopefully.

Carl
Find one that doesn't list pineapple juice as a primary ingredient.

Got home from Ohio not too long ago, picked up a few bottles on the way:
  • Cruzan 9
  • Cruzan Clipper
  • El Dorado Spiced
  • El Dorado 12
  • Pampero Aniversario

I also saw El Dorado Gold, 5, and 15. I'll try the spiced and 12 and decide if I want to go back for the rest. Considering Cockspur 12 too.

I also stumbled upon a bottle of Cruzan 151 with the older label, is this different than the current bottling? If so, in what way?

ED 8 and ED 25. Haven't cracked the 25 yet, but the 8 is outstanding for the price.

Default My recent purchases

Ron Viejo de Caldas
Ron Abuelo Añejo

I haven't opened either bottle yet. However, I tried the Ron Viejo de Caldas at the Caña Rum Bar in Los Angeles the last time I was in California and really liked it. I tried it straight, and also tried it in a Honey Bee cocktail.

Oops, my post was a little vague. All of those were purchased in Michigan as I drove home from Ohio. None of the bottles I listed can be purchased in Ohio.
