Love that Rum - 02/12/10 01:55 AM

Chartering in Belize in April and looking for opinions on local rum. Wasn't crazy about the One Barrel I had last year, but wow prices are major high on others. Except for the Caribbean Gold Rum. Any opinions on this? Other brands that don't cost an arm and a leg.

I have made it a mission over the years to sample and resample every kind of rum on the island. If one barrel is not your tastes, you might consider 5 barrel for a more "aged " rum (one of two default rums I drink and bring home) or going in the other direction Cane Juice if you can find it. These two are polar opposites in my opinion and I like them both. You could also pick up a nice bottle of Ron Zacapa Centanario 23 year old or the 15 year old at duty free on your way in to the country. Last time through the Zacapa 15 was $25 US, I am a devout Zacapist as well, when the budget allows. (it is a good way to determine when it is time to fly back to restock, down to a bottle make a reservation).....

I'm surprised Havana Club isn't more available in Belize. I've seen it at Duty Free, but never on Ambergris. Love the aged stuff....

That's all of them, as far as Premium Wines go at least. Would you like the Tequila list?

What is the island rum that tastes like Malibu coconut rum? Had some last year, it was good and cheap.

Re: Love that Rum - 02/12/10 05:22 PM

Travellers Coconut or Old Master Coconut.

Yeah, I do not know what it is about that rattan band that makes Ron taste so good. There are not a lot of good things that I have to say about Guatamela, but they can definitely make a good rum. Must be some truth to that whole production from cane and not molasses statement.

All this rum talk has made me realize that an overage is about to occur in the budget on the way home. smile

Great suggestions! You guys know your rum. Got another question--loved the Belikin last year. Haven't had the Belikin Premium yet--what's the difference in the two besides one comes in 12oz bottles and one in 8oz?
