Default Hello from Northern California

My name is Joey and I am a rumaholic! I also find myself funnier than most other people probably do but I'm okay with that. I started drinking rum a little over a year ago when I happened upon a bottle of El Dorado 15 at a local specialty wine and spirits store. I wanted to get my dad something nice for fathers day and for some reason this bottle of rum was calling to me instead of a nice bourbon that I was planning on. A few hours later, with my dad and brother, we opened the bottle and could not believe how amazingly smooth and delicious this rum was. As a kid, I'd always loved rum cake, rum nougat and pretty much everything else rum flavored but when I started drinking and only ever tried Bacardi or something else of the same caliber, I was sorely disappointed. Stumbling upon the El Dorado has renewed my love for all things rum and since sent me on a lifelong venture of exploring and savoring as many fine, aged rums as I can get my hands on.

Aside from my love for rum, I a 30 year old male, living in the San Francisco East Bay Area working in building maintenance. I am also an aspiring musician who sings and plays the acoustic guitar. I am a huge movie buff and I can't get enough of NBC's The Office or Parks and Recreation. Feel free to message me or give me any tips and advice you may have! Thanks!

Welcome to the forums. You couldn't have picked a better rum to start with than El Dorado 15 year old.
