Having lived in Guatemala for years, Im partial to Ron Botran Zacapa Centenario...a world class sipping rum. Ron Pampero Aniversario is another strong contender...very nice.

These 2 are sipping rums, just an ice cube or two, its a rum sin to mix them.

For dark high grade mixing rums, Havana Club Aņejo, Ron Zacapa 12 year, Flor de Caņa Aņejo.

Re: Help with Rum

So many!
I had no idea! I love good rum. But one bottle would probably last the rest of my life. I guess I will have to make rum drinking friends so I can try them all!

Re: Help with Rum

When people ask me why I have such a crazy dream(living aboard sailing the world) one of my answers is... going from Island to Island trying as many types of rum as I can.
Then of course trying new coffees in the morning.
So for now I'm just trying as many imports as I can

Re: Help with Rum

Best rum I ever had was bought in the Carrefour in Cherbourg. It was from one of the French Caribbean colonies, and it was artisanal rum from some small maker. Part of Carrefour's promotion of small businesses, local and -- apparently -- colonial. It was very inexpensive.

My God, how delicious it was! Best rum I've ever had. I bang my head over not having bought a few cases of it -- which wouldn't have even been so expensive.

+1!

IMHO, off the shelf, the oldest Brugal you can get is nearly definitely the best bang for buck as well as a very very fine liquor.

Brugal Siglo de Oro is always out there too, should plain old Brugals fail to deliver for you.

There are probably things if you know the smaller local brands intimately.

Re: Help with Rum

Rum is over-rated unless one believes he has the blood of a pirate. There are better alternatives.

Re: Help with Rum

Barbancourt from Haiti, is superb sipping rum. Dark, oaky, and as fine as any Cognac.

Impossible you got rum that old at Carrefour. Maybe the rum came from a French DROM?

You know, marketing tricks ...

Cheers,

Not to me. I don't have the blood of a pirate, but if I drink it's rum or porter. Nothing else will do!

Me either. There are some delicious rums out there...least to my palate. Stows much easier than beer too.

Nice official label declaring it as not for human consumption on a 20L poly chemical container and declare it as medical alcohol.

Think function lad. Had an old mate who used to make delicious liquors that way.
