Rum launch soon?

Post by conch014 »

On the ad for the Texas show (listed in the tour section) it states that the show is presented by Landshark Lager and Margaritaville Premium Jamaican Rum, does this mean that they are launching the rum line soon?

I would guess either that, or someone doesn't know how to spell "Tequila." :)

We can only hope Margaritaville's Premium Rhum is better than their Premium Tequila

It will need to be much better than the tequila (and Landshark) before it ends up at my place. :lol:

Captain Morgan Private Stock is doing the trick quite nicely here, so the flavor and value of the M'Ville rum will have to be superior to become a staple in my cabinet.

I'll try it once and see. The M'Ville tequilas are okay in frozen margaritas but otherwise not. Landshark is drinkable if seriously discounted or free but I won't pay a premium for it. Now it they're bottle Lone Palm Ale they might have something there.

I agree with the Capt Morgan....it's a staple in our cabinet. As for M'ville Tequila, I don't buy it. It's about the same cost as Cuervo Gold, and I prefer the Cuervo in my margaritas.

I refuse to serve Landshark 'beer' or Margaritaville 'tequila' at the z-ranch.
I am hoping to be surprised, but am almost certain that Margaritaville rum will be equally unacceptable!

This store seems to be selling it in Mississippi. Maybe someone nearby can stop by and see if it is true and pick up a bottle.

The Parrot Dice Lounge kinda like a mirage. Here today and gone tomorrow. You should stop by and say hello when visiting Chicago on tour.

I don't buy it either. I prefer Patron for sipping (a rare treat) or Cuervo Black Medallion for mixing with Diet Mountain Dew (Skinny Hillbilly). :D

Mount Gay will stay in my liquor cabinet (well, not for long--but will be replenished!). Obviously will try M'ville if they make a golden.

I'll try it, what the heck?
I'm far from a beer or liquor snob. Hell I like everything from PBR, Miller Chill, High Life, to MD 20/20. Favorite rum is probably good 'ol Cap'n Spiced.
Sipping tequila?...it's supposed to make you go "aaack!" when you do a shot.
