Okay, not a huge connoisseur of the spirits, so forgive the ignorance. But, I do enjoy a decent rum and Coke every now and then and a rum and eggnog is delicious holiday treat.
Basically, I was up at Whistler during the summer and had a rum and Coke at the Keg that the guy used some kind of "gold label" or something like that. Boy, was it delicious compared to the crappy old Bacardi rum and Cokes that I'd had in the past. I didn't think to ask what it was and I'm certainly not driving up to Whistler just to ask him. I'm pretty sure it was a "dark" rum or whatever - it was an amber colour - whatever that means when it comes to rum.
So - what do you recommend?
And for the eggnog, I presume the Captain is the traditional favourite?
