Will this new forum mean that you wont be active any more on ?
I don't have time to do both and after eGullet merged the Rum and Cocktail forums I recieved a lot of mail from Rum Lovers who were disappointed and who wanted a forum dedicated to rum. So here it is.

I still visit eGullet from time to time but don't have enough time to do everything I want to do.

Great idea for a forum. Glad I found it.

Thanks Edward,
I just registered today and want to offer any collaboration you might need from Venezuela and its rums. I am a promoter of rum in my country. I drink little but love rums, its history and tales.

Along with Mr Fjeld, I'm another whisky drinker, with an interest in rums. My favourite so far is the Ron Zacapa 25yo (just had one drink of it at therummer in Bristol).

I've only had multiple pours of Ron Zacapa 23yo, Barbancourt 5 start, Inner Circle Green Dot, Mount Gay Extra Old and El Dorado 15yo.

I've actually tried around 25 rums, because of my proximity to therummer in Bristol, but I'm really a novice and so far only know that I like it.

If only Macallan had the quality of cask you get with the Zacapa rums.
