I was a big rum drinker when I was growing up. It was my drink of choice. Never really had gin to be honest and I switched to whisky about 8-9 years ago and don't much care for rum any more.

So vodka kind of wins by default.

Gin. Good gin is tough to beat. It doesn't ahve to be anything exotic, though; if fact, I don't think I've ever had any gin more exotic than Bombay Saphire. But yes, Bombay, Saphire, Tanquery, Tanqueray Rangphur (sp?) all great beverages especially if you like limes.

Vodka for me, always. "Plain" vodka in mixed cocktails; flavored versions (mainly from Hangar One) on the rocks with no other ingredients.

Gin. No question. As long as it doesn't suck. Tanq No. 10 would be my pick.

Gin. I have come to detest rum and vodka is just too boring for my untrained palate.

Vodka, I haven't had enough good gin for my vote to really matter though.

Definitely gin. Although on some really snowy winter days I do enjoy a good dark rum.

Gin, no doubt, though I did drink a lot of vodka when I was younger. Mostly because that was the thing to do...

Much as I like gin and vodka, I could not give up my dark sipping rums. But it's easy to devalue rum compared to other spirits if Captain Morgan's is your only measuring stick.

Of those only? Gin. But Rum is the next spirit on which I shall educate myself. Ron Zacapa 23 will be my first 'good' rum purchase.
