  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
  2. Sprinkle chopped nuts evenly over the bottom of the pan.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cake mix and pudding mix. Mix in the eggs, 1/2 cup water, oil, and 1/2 cup rum. Blend well. Pour batter over chopped nuts in the pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minute or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
