I'm too broke to drink good rum regularly, so Cruzan dark is my choice. Seeing how this is the first time I've sailed my C-2 all of this probably won't mater a bit to me, but I feel it's my duty to right the wrongs in the rum aisle.

Karl (we'll just call you "number two") you didn't know paddling was part of this? With Jewfish, Angelfish, and those mangrove cuts, you'd better practice!


I think you might have the one and two mixed up

+1, although some of those "Aged" rums aren't all they tout in terms of flavor. Most are smooth, but more oak tasting than one would expect.

I like mine mellow with a hint of vanilla, typically from medium char barrels about 5 years.

You know you can make your own (legally):

Buy a small wooden cask (about $100 from a wine/homebrew site). You pick the char level, but I'd stay with light/medium since the hold time for such a small cask is about 6 months vs. 2 years (greater % by volume in contact with wood)

Buy 5 gallons of ethanol (strong vodka) and run it through a carbon (water) filter about 4-5 times. Since you've already paid the ATF tax (and you aren't distilling it yourself) you're good to go

Drop that bad boy in the cask and let it sit for a few months.

Some people sell a packet of "stuff" you toss in there too, to mimic the aged rum taste, but that's for beginners smile

Instead, buy a small amount of really good burbon and pour about 1/2 cup in the mix. Reasoning, of course, that most rum barrels started out as Whiskey/Burbon barrels that are used once and 'recycled' to other distillers.

I'm a Curzan dark fan myself...but the Puerto Ricans have more rum making experience than anyone. Although they do make most of the base rums used in everything from Bacardi, Diageo (Captain), etc. - they keep the good stuff for themselves. I've done a couple of manufacturing jobs down there and the client has gifted me some of the good stuff...that was...gooooood.

I'm a huge fan of Seven Tiki. Its about the only rum I've really liked. Gives me nasty heartburn though.

Any chance someone needs last minute crew?

Would love to do this race again, and I'm tentatively planning to be in FL the following week. I'll bring rum.

Anyone have an extra paddle they could loan us? The container isn't going to make it back from st barths in time again so I'm stuck using a borrowed boat again. I'd prefer not to buy a paddle

I've got you covered (again). You would think, as often as you find yourself up **** creek, you would own a second paddle.
