In late 2000 I inherited a wonderful liquor selection with the purchase of my home. Currently my assortment of sprits totals 100 bottles give or take (not including the 30 or so bottles of wine). Recently I decided to focus my efforts on the great Caribbean Spirit "Ron" or as we call it stateside Rum. I have a respectable establishment with my collection of 25 Rum's but this pales in comparison to the journey I will undertake. I look forward to the bottles my family and friends will no doubt provide and I encourage master blenders, distillers and distributors from around the world to submit samples of their products for review.

Below is the current account of Rums in my collection; those that I have reviewed will have hyperlinks direct to the review for your convenience as well as hyperlinks to the producer of the spirit. Please feel free to make comments about my selection. Comment on what I have on my shelf and how I got it or what I don't have and how could I consider myself a rum aficionados without it. I plan on adding a thumbnail of the actual bottle in my bar; this will let everyone know that these are (or at least were) on my shelf.
