Rum is the favorite beverage of pirates everywhere.

dBerczerk31 Mar 2016 3:06 p.m. PST

And Seljuks, too.

Timbo W31 Mar 2016 3:09 p.m. PST

"Why is the rum always gone?…Oh, that's why…"

Tom Bryant31 Mar 2016 3:19 p.m. PST

Also of the Royal Navy Bill. Usually always have a tot on Trafalgar Day if no other time.

TMPWargamerabbit31 Mar 2016 3:24 p.m. PST

R & C… the Caribbean way…. or when going out for some Latin dancing.

Not often enough.

JimDuncanUK31 Mar 2016 3:53 p.m. PST

Am tee total.

MHoxie Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 3:54 p.m. PST

Never post when sober.

Timmo uk31 Mar 2016 4:07 p.m. PST

I used to drink it just about daily but I'm no longer able to have alcohol (unrelated reason not over indulgence). Along with port it is the only drink I miss.

jgibbons Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 4:41 p.m. PST

Pusser's Navy Rum!

Gone Fishing31 Mar 2016 4:43 p.m. PST

It's about time to pour meself a measure, says I.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 4:44 p.m. PST

Which raises a question: "Nelson's Blood"--rum,or brandy? I've heard both.

Mako11 Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 4:53 p.m. PST

Very rarely.

zoneofcontrol31 Mar 2016 5:03 p.m. PST

Not often. However, I happen to be drinking a Long Island Ice Tea while clicking through TMP. Good timing.

Gaz the Bald31 Mar 2016 5:05 p.m. PST

A few times a month. Proper measures and rarely just the one. My mother blamed the navy . . . .

myxemail Supporting Member of TMP31 Mar 2016 5:33 p.m. PST

Only under some palm trees on a beach. So that makes out to be once every few years

mad monkey 131 Mar 2016 5:40 p.m. PST

+1 ZOC.

jdpintex31 Mar 2016 5:44 p.m. PST

Rarely. I prefer rye

Personal logo The Beast Rampant Supporting Member of TMP31 Mar 2016 5:55 p.m. PST

Not in a very long time.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP31 Mar 2016 6:17 p.m. PST

Not for years.
I prefer beer.

Mute Bystander Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 6:23 p.m. PST

Prefer wine but on the right night…

Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut31 Mar 2016 6:31 p.m. PST

Every chance I get.

GatorDave Supporting Member of TMP31 Mar 2016 6:33 p.m. PST

Frequently. Big fan of aged dark rums.

Are we sure Bill's account hasn't been hacked?

I have never had it either.

Lee Brilleaux Fezian Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 7:48 p.m. PST

I'm just about to pour myself some Flor de Cana (there's a way of getting the tilde over the 'n' but I can't find it). From Nicaragua.

wrgmr131 Mar 2016 8:18 p.m. PST

Rarely, but just recently I bought a bottle of Blue Chair Bay Rum. It's quite good.

Personal logo vtsaogames Supporting Member of TMP31 Mar 2016 8:31 p.m. PST

Usually on beach vacations.

John Treadaway31 Mar 2016 10:09 p.m. PST

As Kyote said, not in twenty years (at least).

My need to get all piratical seems to have dwindled in the second half of my life.

EMPERORS LIBRARY Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 10:56 p.m. PST

Yes, but how would you wargame it? And what scale?

I think I need a drink. Pussers Navy Rum of course :))

Navy Fower Wun Seven Inactive Member31 Mar 2016 11:28 p.m. PST

Every time I down a Painkiller, a Cuba Libre or a Dark n Stormy…

Green Tiger01 Apr 2016 2:07 a.m. PST

Am currently slightly hung over from the tot of Kraken I polished off last night…

John the Confused01 Apr 2016 2:19 a.m. PST

Rarely these days but Wood's 100 when I do.

Pertti Inactive Member01 Apr 2016 2:19 a.m. PST

I only USE rum, if there is no Marsala at home, to make tiramisł.

stephen phillip Inactive Member01 Apr 2016 3:03 a.m. PST

When its stolen!
Lol its a brand name of a nz produced rum

platypus01au01 Apr 2016 3:38 a.m. PST

Every now and again. My favourite is Mount Gay. With lime, sugar and soda water.


Cosmic Reset Inactive Member01 Apr 2016 4:37 a.m. PST

Never, hate the stuff.

Personal logo Murphy Sponsoring Member of TMP01 Apr 2016 4:56 a.m. PST

Currently have 7 bottles of different types, from the light mixed drink Ronrico/Malibu/Bacardi stuff to the Appleton Estate and Pyrat as well as a bottle of Gosling Black Seal Black Rum sitting on my liquor shelf in my home office about 6 feet away from me…
Oddly enough I have never tried Pusser's….

redbanner414501 Apr 2016 4:58 a.m. PST

I prefer gin.

KSmyth01 Apr 2016 5:58 a.m. PST

Rarely. Had an unfortunate experience with 151 when I was a teenager. Mostly a beer, wine and gin guy these days

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP01 Apr 2016 6:37 a.m. PST

When I run out of stout, balzams, vodka, raki, ouzo, pisang, brandy, kaluha, peppermint schnapps, everclear, dandelion wine, and amarula, I might get into the rum … but that's really SWMBO's drink (with soda).

Old Wolfman01 Apr 2016 6:39 a.m. PST

Had an uncle who made a decent Cuba Libre.

boy wundyr x Inactive Member01 Apr 2016 7:36 a.m. PST

I've been a fan of spiced rum lately, particularly Kraken. Like KSmyth, had a bad experience with Malibu Rum and diet Coke as a teenager, so it's been a long while to get back in that saddle, though Malibu and Kraken shouldn't really be in the same sentence.

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member01 Apr 2016 8:11 a.m. PST

Almost never.

I've had one or two I liked, but I'm a vodka person through and through.

Gone Fishing01 Apr 2016 8:59 a.m. PST

Inspired by this thread I've gone and got myself a bottle of Ron Zacapa. It isn't cheap, but if you haven't tried it you should. It is very fine.

Zargon Inactive Member01 Apr 2016 9:01 a.m. PST

I takes me Grog and tiptoes up t' yard arm an does a jig singing me little a dittie {;). Arrr!
Rum best served just before the whistle blows to leave the trenches. That is before any task requiring a bit o Dutch, Mates :)
