Default This is your fault

OK, I'm not usually one to blame anybody for my actions as I feel people should take a bit more responsibility for their own deeds, but this time I can think of nothing else to do.

The purpose for drinking beer, wine, Scotch, etc... isn't to get drunk, at least not in my book. Except for water, each beverage which passes my lips does so because I enjoy the flavor.

Rum to me, was always something that I enjoyed mixed with Coca-cola or in a daquiri. At least until I met up with a couple brothers from Cigar Asylum at a herf and I there had my first taste of a fine sipping rum. Then, someone else from this board sent me my own bottle of such a beverage. This intrigued me to read a bit more in the rum thread.

Someone else posted a thread about "the cigar drink," and that too was enticing.

You need something to sip on when enjoying a fine cigar, and I had previously thought that my ales, porters, stouts, etc... was enough. Grape products (wine, Cognac, Armagnac) were also good partners to a fine smoke. Single Malt Scotches also seemed a nice pairing.

Of course, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and other beverages seem to be paired with my cigars, but it is rum which brought me to this point.

Now, I must admit that the sipping rums seem to surpass them all with their fitting flavors to accompany a cigar. Maybe it is the fact that they were reared in the same area and paired for more years than the others - they grew up together, so to speak.

But, I was fine as I enjoyed the pairing of cigars with the beverages I had always enjoyed. I knew not what I was missing. It was blissful ignorance that allowed me to continue in this way for so many years.

So, this is y'all's fault. Not mine!

I, too, feel your pain. Rum is probably my favorite...

You will love both the Zaya and the Ron Zacapa... I am not familiar with the FERNET BRANCA BITTER you ordered. Do tell?!

Congratulations, you just found a new slope

If you like the flavors of the Zaya and Zacapa, you'll have to try Diplomatico and Ron Centenario, and then if you decide they're a little too sweet, try Ron Pampero and Vizcaya, and then if you want something a little lighter in style... you can see where this is going

What is it with a certain breed of men who do not seem to be sympathetic at all to my pain.

Joe, there is a thread that was linked to the Frenet Branca Bitter.

Well, the last two nights found me doing some sampling. I am not sure I am a fan of the FERNET BRANCA BITTER and coke.

Last night I had a glass of the Ron Zacapa. I have already had the Zaya, and know I like that. But, I must say that I may like the Pyrat XO better than the others.

(TFPIC) Thanks for the new slope you rum buggers.

Glad your enjoying the Rums. Now it's your fault, I read your update and had break out the Ron zacapa last night. But it was chilly and I was smoking a cuesta rey sungrown churchhill so I had to have a few extra drinks to compensate for the cold and longer smoke. 5am came real early!

Oh, and that's my fault?

Didn't take much of a nudge to get you to fall off that edge, did you?

OK,

You need to place another order for this one, so all is not lost.
