    As for the Dickel 8 chatter, lets stop dissing George Jr.
    Just as it is important not to generalize about and diss George Jr it is important not to do the same about rum in general! There are plenty of rums that it would be as much of a sacrilege in spirits nerd-dom to mix with ginger ale (come on, at least you could use a decent ginger beer ) as it would be to mix GTS or A.H. Hirsch with Diet Coke.

    You just haven't had the right rums apparently!

    Re: Dickel 8

    I've had enough to form an opinion, of sorts. 8-12-15-23-25 Appletons, Zaca, El Dorados, Ron Zacapas, 10 Cane, Cruzans, Lemon Hart back in the old days, some of the Navy strengths, as far as I'm concerned the only reason to put rum in a barrel is to get the sulfur out of it.

    I'll take Dickel 8 over any rum.

    Ah, as I suspected. Just haven't had the right rums (or should I say rhums?). Just as well, means more for me!

    But I will certainly be happy to relieve your burden and trade you a Dickel 8 for an Appleton 25....
