Sharing Football & Premium Rum with friends

This post brought to you by Diageo. All opinions are 100% mine.


One of the great things about football is the way we chose to spend these few limited weeks in the fall. We share it with family and friends either at the game and tailgating or at home watching on television. Last weekend I enjoyed SEC football games with friends and exceptional Scotch. This weekend it is time to explore a new option—.premium dark rum

For this the exotic Guatemalan Zacapa premium rum is the choice. It is unique beginning with virgin sugar cane honey instead of the traditional molasses. Regardless of what you are eating or drinking, starting with the highest quality ingredients yields the best taste.

Next, the rum is aged at over 7,500 feet or 2,300 meters in a facility known as The House Above the Clouds. Here in the Quetzaltenango highlands a 500-year old Spanish system of Sistema Solera is used to bring added complexity to the rum.

This process sends the rum through casks that previously held American whiskey, sherry and Pedro Ximenez wine. This adds to the bouquet and flavor of the rum.

In the end, you get a dark brown color rum with an oaky flavor that really is exotic and worth sharing.

You can find Zacapa rum at various restaurants, bars and retailers including a few here in the Southeast in New Orleans and Miami. There is a helpful map on the website to direct you to the nearest outlets in your city. Click one of the links to visit the official website to view the map.

Serving tip: try the rum over pure spring water ice as you enjoy college or pro football.

You can learn much more about the Zacapa by joining the Zacapa Society.

    Beware of downloading Firefox in links like this.
    Only download from a reputable source like Cnet.
    The one time I fell for something like this, I got a damn trojan that highjacked my home page and search engine.
    Took forever to get rid of it and get it fixed.
    Just sayin’.

        You click on “Zacapa premium rum” in the 2nd paragraph and it says “you can’t get there from here” and says you have to download Firefox and gives you a link to do it.
        FWIW, I stopped & googled up Zacapa’s web site and went to it OK on IE, no problem.
        Just figured something was up, ’cause that’s how I got burned, downloading Firefox from an unfamiliar site.

          FWIW, I just clicked on “Zacapa premium rum” again after successfully googling it up on IE and now it goes to the site OK.
          Go figure.
          But I’m not making this stuff up.
          Why would I?

            I believe you. I replicated it with 2 of the 3 links I tested on IE. However, since I typically use Firefox, Chrome and Safari–I never saw that message before. No clue what caused the error. I’ll send a note and see if they can repair it or fix it in the future.

            And now I can’t replicate it. I think it is the first time you visit the website in IE that produces the error message. I’ll take a look at it on another computer.

            I appreciate your mentioning it.

    Lotta crap on the internet about trojan hijacks in IE and Firefox.
    Rum sounds good, though.
    I plan on trying it.
