Never been a rum drinker but was persuaded to try a "premium" rum on holiday on the States in the summer over a whisky (my regular after dinner tipple) on the basis that i should try something new.

I did and was pleasantly surprised but can't remember the name of the rum. I have since bought a bottle of Pyrat which I am enjoying as an occasional drink but it is not the rum I had in the States and, while excellent, is not as good.

So can anyone recommend me some decent rum so that I can try to locate this brand (I would probably recognise the name if mentioned).

Thanks all

did you try it neat?

if so, i would recommend El Dorado 15, or maybe Ron Zacapa.

if it was mixed (best with ginger beer) i would recommend Sailor Jerry or Mount Gay, as you want a punchier flavour for mixing.

The recipe changed earlier this year. Previously it had lime flavouring and lots of added sugar, now it is straight up spiced rum (cinnammon, cassia, vanilla).

Not only did they change the recipe, they changed it for the American recipe! Used to shift about 3 cases a week of the stuff from one of my sites in Bristol, now barely sell a bottle a week.

On the flip side, Morgan Spiced has boomed because of it.

Trick with Sailor Jerry is a quarter wedge of lime, softly squeezed into 50ml measure, and a dash of vanilla essence, brings the old days back! Or for the whole bottle, 2 x vanilla pods and about 2 weeks waiting.

For Sailor Jerry fans. You do know the recipe changed and is now rank IMO. I have about 2 measures of the good stuff left frown

http://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/index.php?option=...

As above I have made it my mission to find a replacement so ordered a bottle of Lambs Spiced Rum (not to be confused with Lambs Navy Rum). This is a proper spiced rum with cinnamon and vanilla being the main body with a nice spicy aftertaste. 8/10 Rum.

i don't get the fascination with sailor jerry, it's horrible and the previous recipe wasn't great either.

if you want the sailor jerry taste, mix a cuba libre using a light caribbean rum and tesco almond coke.

pyrat xo is lovely stuff. i don't find 1919 to be that great for its age, though i do like appletons 12y.o. mount gay is great for mixing, as is myers which has a darker molasses taste.
