Don Q Gran Añejo Puerto Rican Rum (Destilería Serrallés, Ponce, Puerto Rico). Don Q has been produced in Puerto Rico since 1932 in a distillery started in 1865 by the Serrallés family. Aiming for mid-market, some interesting rums have appeared, nonetheless. The Gran Añejo is one of those: a blend of rums between 3 and 12 years of age, intended for sipping, I presume, but at a reasonable cost for including in cocktails, too. (via boozenik.com)
Puerto Rican Pineapple Rum Cake- This particular rum cake was often served by one of Wessel's aunts. "I think all the Irish side of our family loved it because it was loaded with rum," he says, joking that they'd often add more to the glaze than the recipe called for. The alcohol will burn off, but you can also omit the rum glaze and just serve with ice cream.
