Tiger Drinks Treasure Rum

I got to visit the Discover Sea Shipwrech Museum on Fenwick Island, DE last month. I meet Dale Clifton, a very lucky modern day adventurer n' director of this grand museum.

By the devils teeth, I gots me a swig of rum taken from bottle taken from a ship from the Spanish 1733 treasure fleet. This bottle be taken from a British Royal Navy Ship. The grog be bottled in 1730, n' lined with coconut fiber n' sugar cane, filled with145 proof rum to the neck of the bottle, then the neck be filled with water n' two table spoons of lime juice. After the rum be aged 281 years, it turns to a 186 proof, strong enough that it numb yar teeth to pull them out without feeling a thing. The most amazing rum ever, yarrrr!

What started out as a quick look around turned into 6 hours of education about treasure hunting from the land n' sea. If ye be on the mid-Altantic seaboard, then visit this fine museum. It's free to all treaure lovin' souls.
