Let us know what you think.

But IMO, Captain and (diet) Coke is the only rum drink on the boat for me.

We had a thread on here recently of all our favorite rum drinks and The Captain was disparaged - but you can't beat the classics!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Thick, tarry molasses notes on the nose. This also offers up cinnamon and dates.

Palate: Coffee beans, spice and dark treacle. A rich, thick, slightly spirity palate.

Finish: Develops on oak and fragrant woods.
Not my style, but if you like Pussers or other sweet, molasses-y rum, go for it and let us know what you think. They also say they can't ship to the US right now, not sure if that means just retail or wholesale, too.

[I'm with Menzies; Captain's spiced is a good everyday rum, especially if you're mixing it with Coke. Less so on the clear stuff. For shots there are far better options, but you will be paying more.]

I only drink rum made on islands I've been to. Not that it is better, just better memories!
So far: Puerto Rico, Bahamas, St. Croix, St. Thomas, BVI, and Barbados. Mmmmm...

I don't know if Hawaii makes rum or even grows much cane anymore.

When we are in the Islands the bars seem to use Myers for all their cocktails. I bought two bottles and brought one and two thirds home with us to give away. Maybe I'm a bit heavy handed with my pour but it tastes like medicine - Calamine Lotion to be exact!

Cruzan was <$1 in the grocery store on St. Croix when I was a kid - my first taste!
Mt. Gay from Barbados is decent and widely available. So many rums, so little time...

I'm currently having some Barracuda Cay from Panama. Okay, not an island but a peninsula!

Greetings,
Mr. KY. "I only drink rum made on islands I've been to." Well boyo, you'll have to visit "The Rock" (Newfoundland...No boys I'm not forgetting Labrador but she's on the mainland see and Mr. KY's talking about islands). VERY famous "rum"...

Try once rhum (yes that's the way we spell it) from Martinique and you will never go back (and not talking about St James the most "industrial" one but La Mauny, Trois Rivieres, J.M, HSE, Clement and so on).
My favorite is J.M. or La Mauny (their Hors d'Age is just nectar).

What's your favorite from BVI?
Fell in love with Sebastian's on Tortola when we used to fly there all the time.

If ever "downunder", try this 75.9% proof little rum. I was given a bottle by the original maker,CSR (Commonwealth Sugar Refineries),years ago, never been game to open it.

My family stayed on Bellamy Cay in Trellis Bay years ago. Al Prentis ran it then.

Trawler Rum

A couple of years back, cruised the north coast of the Dominican Republic and discovered a rum entitled/labelled "Q". Loved it and drank a fair amount of it but have not been able to find it at home or anywhere else I have been. Anyone know it?

Not sure? Don't recall the "Don" part of the label?? Also been through Peurto Rico and don't recall it there either. Thanks anyway.

Rum and Coke is a beginner's drink. I've graduated to gin with tonic water, Martinis, or rarely an old fashioned.
