My spiced rum

Lynnda Cloutier

300 years ago, Capt. Henry Morgan, a buccaneer, turned island-governor, began to add spice and fruit flavors to the run he produced on Jamaica. Today, along with other flavored rum, spiced rums are among the most popular in the world, especially with younger drinkers, the category into which I no longer fit. I still love spiced rum and never one to let well enough alone and just as happy mixing up my own as I am buying someone else's. A bottle of this spicy, rum makes a wonderful Christmas gift.Source unknown
