I obviously know fuck all about rum, pretty much like my knowledge of wine. lou_sad

 This is OK unless you have an eye patch and wooden leg and make the sound'Arghhh' frequently. If that was the case, then yes you would be a laughing stock amongst the Privateers and would no longer be welcome here;

Incidentally, the Ron Abuelo Panamanian 12 year old rum is lush in a corn n oil.

I may have had too many and ordered a new boston cocktail shaker, hawthorne strainer and muddler.

 This and captain morgans was my drink of choice when I was younger as that was the only dark rum in the pubs back then. It was only when I went to Cuba aged 20ish that I discovered other rum and then the navy rums were ditched. 

 

We bought a bottle of Mount Gay Black Barrel recently. Too whisky like for my palate.

Today’s instalment is a Don Q Gran Anejo. 

Has a hint of bourbon about this one.

Ok help needed please.  In the Bucks drinks supplies, we have discovered a bottle of St Lucia Chairman's Reserve rum:

I cant remember the last time I had any rum at all.   Mrs Bucks cant remember what she used to drink with this while on holiday (but it must have been good, prompting a bottle purchase).   Suggestions please?

 It's alright. Not as good as their spiced version. After our conversation the other day you could try it in a dark n stormy (double rum, juice of half a lime plus ginger beer).

My particular favourite at the moment is a corn n oil. Juice of half a lime, shot of falernum or syrup, double rum, lots of crushed ice and a few dashes of Angostura bitters.
