On the rum with Cockspur

Not only do we bloggers enjoy giving out tips on any random topic that flits through our brains, but we also enjoy doing product reviews.  We'll shill anything, especially if it's free for us, and doubly so if we get to run a contest on our blogs.

Imagine my delight, then, to receive the following e-mail from Steven Shaw, the PR rep at Cockspur Rum, after he found my blog:


As much as I wanted those samples, for the benefit of my readers, naturally, I felt it prudent to inform him first that my blog actually has little to do with rum, despite the misleading title.  After a brief e-mail exchange revealed that I am but a humble distance runner and not some rum magnate, he politely rescinded the original offer.  English wordplay is not his fort√©, it would seem.

So I'm left to do my product review without the benefit of actually having tried the product myself.


Cockspur Rum: if it does its job as well as its PR rep, plan on bringing some backup to the party.

Drink Cockspur Rum responsibly, and rum wild, friends.
