Ok Scottes. Non point but observance taken.

The reason why I have a large number of bottles is that I can choose whatever I might be in that mood for, sweet, dry, heavy, light, or somewhere in between. Neat, rocks, cocktail. The thing I love most about rum is the variation, and the different cultures and techniques behind the making of the spirit. Because of this, I think I have a somewhat educated palate, with plenty of room to learn more and more. It is good to taste other spirits from time to time. In my life, I have been a scotch and a tequila consumer, but in the last 4-5 years, rum has really won my heart. We all have our preferences, but we also with time can learn to appreciate the spirit, dry or sweet, even if its not our most favorite.
