Default Another new guy here

Hey everyone, my name is Tim. I'm not entirely new to rum, but I am new to the higher end products.

In the past my favorites have been Havana Club 7, Flor De Cana 7/12 and Sailor Jerry (for making cream sodas, not so much by itself).

As my birthday is tomorrow, I have received some birthday money recently and I sprang for some rum purchases online, since there isn't much selection in these parts. I have a bottle of Zacapa 23 and Zaya on the way, as well as some Sailor Jerry, Appleton Estate 12 year and Pampero that I purchased locally.

I'm looking forward to learning more about rum, and trying the bottles I've recently purchased
