Arrgh! I didn’t even know there was such a thing until I read about it on Reddit’s rum subreddit. September 19th is international talk like a pirate day. Believe it or not but this is the 17th year it has been celebrated. Pretty good for something that originated with a poor game of racquetball.
But since we are talking about pirates, other than parrots, peg-legs, and doubloons, what is more associated with them than rum? Now a good rum is a thing of sublime beauty that can rival the best whiskeys. Then there is the stuff that even a mixer like Coca-Cola can’t make drinkable.
