Captain Morgan Private StockI don't know how many of you Spine Dorks are rum drinkers, but I surely am. Until recently, I thought Captain Morgan Deluxe was just about the best dark rum out there...that is until I discovered Captain Morgan Private Stock.
It only comes in 750 mL bottles, which cost about $35 each. That's a little steep for a bottle of rum, but this isn't just any bottle of rum. This is simply the smoothest, fullest-flavoured, spiciest-aromaed rum I have ever tasted. It is absolutely delicious. I have not yet found the need to even mix it with anything -- it's that smooth.
|Mmmm...mmmm. This is some of the best rum that money can buy.|
You know how you can tell the classy wine from the crappy wine? The classy wine comes with a cork while the crappy wine has a screw off top. Well, apparently it's the same with rum. Once you remove the foil-like wrapper at the top, there's a cork stopper in the bottle. That, and the shape of the bottle itself, gives you that authentic feeling that this was really smuggled out of some carribean island.
Even if you're not a regular rum drinker, I highly recommend that you pick a quart of this up for whenever I come over.
