The breadth of rum encompasses many different dimensions.  One of the things that makes it so interesting is the fact that one rum can fall in many different categories.  For example, you may like one particular rum for many different reasons.  It may be a rum that on a normal night you’d like to sit back, relax and sip it neat.  But maybe on some occasion, you’d rather mix it in a drink.  Or maybe you’d rather use it as a cooking ingredient.  Personally speaking, I think rum is so varied in flavor that doing specific categories may beget pigeonholing.  It does not do it justice and thus I am hesitant to say this rum is for this and that rum for something else in specific.  As with a lot of things in life, it is all in the eye of the beholder.  We are here to help guide you through certain paths by making suggestions we think are good when it comes to rum, not to tell you what to do with it.  Thus the theme of this Rum Bums meeting.  These are rums that are not only really good on their own but they can certainly fit into the category of after dinner rums (if there ever was one)  I like to say they are also great beginner rums because of their elegance and smoothness going down.  If you have a lady you’d like to impress with rum, go ahead and choose one of these for her to try.  If it does not work, please, try the next one in line and so on.  At the very least, you are sure to have some fun with this experiment.  In short, these are some of the great rums in the world of such spirit.  There's one from Guatemala (Pampero Aniversario) one from Trinidad & Tobago (Zaya) and and finally one from Venezuela (Zapcapa Centenario)  Some of you may already know how good these rums are.  If you do, you are probably already excited to come drink with us.  If you do not, this is one rum club you do not want to miss.  So when you come out remember to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.  We hope you like them as much as we do.  SALUD!!!


  1. Have you tried The Kraken Rum (Trinidad & Tobago)? I had some last weekend and it was sweet and wonderful.

    I'll probably see you guys on Tuesday. :) Salud!

  2. Kraken rocks girl! It is very sweet but so good for an overproof rum as well as a spiced rum. Hope you can make Rum Club... :)
