Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown (#30 – #26)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 29, 2016

2016rum_howler_badgeToday is the last of the ‘group’ postings for my Top 50 Mixing Rum Countdown. From this point forward, the mixing rums will be introduced one at a time as I count down from number 25 to number 1. If you are interested in how the Countdown has progressed so far, here is a link to the growing list:

The Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown

Today’s revelation includes three spiced rums within the grouping. Spiced rum has been a bit of a revelation for myself this year. Whereas I have long considered spiced rums strictly as soda mixers, great with cola and not much else, this year I encountered Tony Abou’s spiced rum cocktail, the Cable Car which opened up a whole new world of mixing possibilities for me with respect to spiced rum servings.

This revelation, I am sure, is the reason why so many spiced rums have made my list. I recommend that any who have not sampled the delight of the Cable Car do so immediately, and if you find that particular libation to your liking, try a few the cocktails I was inspired to create, The Fog Horn, The Jerrycan, The Pedestrian, or the Trolley Car. Hopefully a new world of possibilities will open for you as well.

Here are the next five spirits in my Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown:

Appleton White#30  Appleton White Jamaican Rum

“… As this is a cocktail rum, I decided to mix the triumvirate of quintessential white rum cocktails, the Daiquiri, the Mojito, and the Cuba Libre’. Although all three bar drinks would be welcome in my bar glass; by far, I preferred the Mojito and Daiquiri over the Cuba Libre’. The Jamaican White Rum has a strong affinity for lime and citrus based cocktails …”

SAM_0991#29  Lemon Hart Navy Spiced Rum 

“… I immediately tried a little spiced rum and cola in my glass. I was quite pleased that some of that aggressive spiciness within the rum pushed through the cola giving this simple bar drink a welcome spicy ‘oomph’. I also mixed the spiced rum with fruit juice and ginger ale and found even more enjoyment, and then I went out on a limb and created my own short cocktail (my Merry Widow Cocktail) …”

especial_extra_english_dry_rgb-e1390581460176#28  Brugal Especial Extra Dry Rum 

“… I decided to begin my cocktail explorations with a simple daiquiri and I followed that with a mojito. The mojito in particular tasted very nice (the daiquiri was quite delicious as well), and I really cannot find fault in the rum as a high quality mixer. It appears to be as advertised, a quality white rum meant add a touch of character to the cocktail …”

The Fog Horn

The Fog Horn

#27  Screech Spiced 100 (Proof) Rum 

“… I mixed a nice spiced rum and cola, and found the result very satisfying. To test the spiced rum’s versatility, I mixed next with ginger-ale and was surprised at the tasty result. Finally I mixed a new short cocktail combining the Screech Spiced 100 (Proof) Rum with Southern Comfort, fresh juice and bitters (my Fog Horn recipe). Once again I was well pleased …”

the-cane-mutiny-sam_2842#26  Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast Pumpkin Spiced Rum

“… The aroma from the glass is very nice. I let my wife have a nice sniff, not letting her know what was inside. She immediately smiled and said my rum reminded her of her pumpkin spiced chai tea that she loves. I guess you could say that Captain Morgan nailed it! Pumpkin, caramel, and vanilla rise into the breezes accented lightly by cinnamon and cloves. The combination is wonderful …”
