Smile Introduction: OzzRod

Hi all,
I had no idea there was such interest in rum. I have just returned from a month long tour of Ile de la Réunion, Madagascar and Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, east of Africa. All three destinations offer a variety of rums and rhum arrangés - unexpected treats. A tour and tasting of Réunion's oldest distillery (Charles Isautier) was a wonderful introduction to the industry side of things and we brought several bottles back with us to Australia. However my favourite was a mixed fruit arrangé stored and served on the dining room bar at le Vieux Cep hotel in Cilaos, Réunion. This has kindled my interest in the next logical step - preparing my own at home. I'm hoping this forum will provide useful suggestions on doing so.

Welcome to the forums OzzRod. There are a lot of rums on the islands you mention and I'm sure you noticed that the diversity of sugar cane spirits unlike any other distilled spirit.

Enjoy the journey.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
