What is Your favorite Rum?

Rums from Spain are so very underrated. I brought back a bottle of Ron Pujols which is a very exceptional brown rum.
My favorite dark rum is Ron Amazona which is from the Island of Mallorca, Spain. This rum is my absolute favorite of all rums with a very sweet mollasses flavor, perfect to sip on with ice. I have tried to find a place to buy it outside of Mallorca but have been unable to. My local liquor store recommended Goslings Black Seal as a subsitute, but it is not nearly as thick or dark as the Ron Amazona which has a smoother and bolder taste. Highly recommended if you ever visit Mallorca.

From the advice of this thread I picked up a bottle of Pyrate XO for $30 and a bottle of Cruzan Single Barrell for $23.

Hey Shroud, I got married out there in Mallorca but never tried the local rums. The whole wedding crowd got stuck into the local liquer Tunel, as well as the excellent Spanish brandies that cost next to nothing at all the local bars.

Certainly the Mallorcan distillaries did a great job of imitating English gin, so it's great to hear that they are producing good rum. I'll look out for some when I visit Spain in the Fall.

Hi Trader Woody,

Be sure to pick up a bottle of Ron Amazona. This stuff is great, I even like it better then Pyrat XO Reserve. Was able to find a place that sells it online from Barcelona, however since I live in the state of Georgia, I am unable to purchase alcohol by mail order.
In Mallorca I visited Palma Nova and was very surprised to see that the British had taken over that area. English was spoken on the street with very little Spanish. Lots of shops were run by British who had moved to Mallorca and lots of cheap alcohol.
Guess I will have to stick with the Pyrat XO Reserve as thats the best rum that I can buy locally. The Cruzan Single barrel is a good second choice, although the flavor of the Pyrat seemed more exotic to me.

Thought I'd revive an old thread, lots of good info here.

Has anyone else ever seen/tried this rum?



I saw it while visiting Gaithersburg, MD and almost bought it because the label was so cool. I passed on it since my limit was 4 bottles, and it didn't look like the quality was there.




tikiwahine, the bottle i bought last saturday nite there was $7 and it would probably be fine for a mixer. i tried it straight and "smooth" wasn't the first thought that came to mind

I have not received my bottle yet.
Guessing it wasn't good to begin with, I bought the bottle to hang up in the bar (eye-candy).

zaya reserve

all three are fabulous in their own way.

My fave rum is Australian - Bundaberg Rum. Great with coke (i know, not very tiki), and a great sense of humour in their adds and stuff.

Otherwise, I made up this for a re-labelled bottle of rum:

Heweys Brew is brewed from
specially selected sugarcane,
harvested under a full moon
by voluptuous island natives
scantily clad in coconut bikinis.

Upon drinking Heweys Brew,
the individual is transported
to a time devoid of politically
correct bullshit, where it is
still acceptable to sacrifice
a virgin for entertainment.

Heweys Brew is a beverage
the whole family can enjoy,
from old codgers to ankle biters.

Ahh, so my suspicions were correct! It is a very cool bottle though, definitely a keeper for the shelf. Maybe next time I'll pick one up. At $7, who cares what it tastes like!

Hey there, I goofed and started a new thread before seeing this one. My current fav is Pyrate Planter's Gold for sipping. I'm very much a rum sipper, and it's good. Some rums can taste kind of hairspray-ish, but Planter's Gold is very smooth and kind of sweet, while still having a nutty, woody bite to it. For dark rum, I'm a Gosling's Black Seal man. I tend to stay away from Bacardi. To me, it's just too bitter.

My favorite sipping rum is Anniversario Ron Anejo from Venezuela. It has a rich caramely flavor, with a wonderful warm mouth feel and just the right amount of heat to rival a fine cognac. It's barrel aged and has nuances of oak. We, in Southern California, only get about 24 bottles shipped in from the distributor each year. Seems Vendome Liquors in Toluca Lake has cornered this year's shipment and sold it off to a waiting list. I was in there yesterday and much to my surprise, there were four bottles not spoken for on their shelf. One went home with me, but there are three more waiting to be enjoyed. Look for it in its distinctive leather pouch. Mmmm...

I just bought a bottle of this liquid gold and I'm hooked!
The Tiki Gids are smiling upon me. My local liquor store carries it.
Should be for sipping only.

Funny you should say that tiki-el, I just bought one yesterday first time for $11.99 on sale at Ralphs, I am not sure about the price or the taste but it looked good.
