    ok rum drinkers

    do you folks drink "palmera rum" whn visiting aruba?

    we are not rum snobs, pretty much we are rum ignorants
    we do enjoy parrot bay or malibu coconut rum and that is about it.

    Yes I enjoy it. Its my regular drink at the Hilton casino because they don't "love" to provide top shelf and the Palmera works for me so its all good.

    We drink it. No sense using 7 or 15 year Havana Club if you are going to mix it with anything. And we like Palmera vodka for Bloody Mary's.

    Since I do mix it I do buy Palmera Coconut Rum not the best but when mixing with fruit juice it goes well. Dick.

    I'm a rum fan. My best friend and I grew up on Malibu (well, after I was old enough to drink of course), so I stick to it when traveling.

    On the other hand, I am not a fan of Capt Morgan.

    I may try Palmera. I read previously about going to their store and sampling????






    Hoping for a 30th anniversary trip to our favorite place.

    I believe I do I know I've seen the bottle so guessing this is the house rum at Divi? If it is I find it extremely sweet compared to Malibu and Parrot Bay which I enjoy back home. Because of how sweet it is I can only have a few before my teeth start to hurt
