Default Cold and snowy in Michigan

I just joined this evening as a result of searching various sources for Rum info. I found the Ministry to be the among the best places for discussion and info on Rum. Until recently I've been strictly a scotch person, favoring the Glenmorangies, Scapas, and Macallans of the world.

I was turned on to Rum for the first time a few years ago at my brothers bachelor party where a bartender suggested that if I liked scotch, I should entertain a good rum, and so came my first pour of pyrat cask 23, and the love affair starts from there. In the last 2 or 3 years, I've only tasted the cask 23 or the pyrat XO. I'm just starting now to expand my rum appreciation and look forward to learning. I really have enjoyed the Pyrat immensely when I did not feel like being "punished" by the Macallan Cask strength which I really love.

My wife and I are going to the Playa Del Carmen, Mexico area later this month and in the past its been a great source of Cuban Cigars. I'm hoping to add some great rums while down there!

Welcome 1967Cougar

You are a man after my own heart, Scotch and Rum. Maybe with a little prodding I can get you to try Canadian Whisky as well.

Thanks for the introduction, while you're in Mexico take a look around for some Zacapa or Havana Club rums, you can buy the Zacapa in the US, but you won't find the Havana Club rums there. Enjoy the vacation and the rum quest.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
