Monte Cristo 12 Year Aged Rum

Remember the movie Pirates of the Caribbean? Remember that pirate in Jack’s crew (the one who wasn’t Cotton, wasn’t the dwarf or the guy with the flask, and wasn’t the cute chick, Anamaria.) Yeah, that pirate. No? Me neither. He was probably very cool and piratey looking, but with so many colorful characters floating around, he just didn’t manage to leave a mark on my memory. Well, that’s how I feel about Monte Cristo rum. It’s good, tastes like rum, even has a reasonably satisfying tingle as it goes down my throat. But try as I might, I can’t find a single thing about it that makes it distinctive from other rums – nothing to make me want to rush out and get another bottle.

And that makes me sad.
