Which rum does SG use for Painkillers?

I know how to make a painkiller (and have sampled a few dozen at the Soggy Dollar over the years :-). But my question is, the rums - I swear they use Pussers Navy Rum for the base, and float Myers (I believe...?) over on Jost. St. John bars typically use Cruzan. Does anyone remember which run Soggy Dollar uses?

Cheers

Spaced it a bit on the floater... It's been 10 months since I've been on JVD :-)

As a photographer, I am looking thru my shots (still looking...) - and believe TB may be correct. Thank you.

So... what I'm drinking now is not a Pain Killer, but tasty.

Ok, I found a pic - but the label is not visible. Have a look...

Plus, I think I was confused by my stay on Marina Cay as they served only Pussers. (But this makes sense as they're owned by them)

Check out www.rumtherapy.com. I used their recipes for the Painkiller and Nilla Killer. Worked for me.

For those who like Pusser's rum, try the Cruzan Blackstrap. In my opinion it's WAY superior to the Piusser's of today which is vastly different from the original. Cheers!

Ja, I get a LOT of fusel alcohol/solvent character out of Pussers. It just tastes very young. We love Mt. Gay, with Cruzan Cruzan as backup. Cruzan Blackstrap and Goslings we save for the Dark & Stormies. That being said, Cruzan Dark is good stuff.

Cheers, RickG
