Just got my first bottle of Pyrat XO and it's my favorite sipping rum so far. For mixing I love El Dorado demerara and Myers.

I bought a bottle of Malteco Ron 20 y.o. from Guatemala the other day and i think its incredible!
The 15 year old is extraordinary too.
I'm not sure if the real hardcore rumdrinkers will like it though because its almost like a very smooth cognac, as soft as it can get.

For all purpose sipp'in and shots: Mount Gay. I'm pretty sure that I should'ave bought stock in the distillery years ago. An open bottle doesn't last long in the Vortex.

Specialty: Goslings Black Seal. You can't make a Dark'n Stormy without it. If you haven't had a Dark'n Stormy, you owe it to yourself to try one. Easy to make. A mug, ice, Black Seal and Ginger beer. Classic.

I absolutely love the smell of Goslings Black Seal.

Haven't seen one of my favorites listed in here yet -
Ron Matusalem Platino is a silver rum that's nearly sippable, something that I find to be quite rare; it always seems like the darker ones are more useful for sipping.

It's from the Dominican Republic, and their website is here:
http://www.matusalem.com/home.html

They also have a darker Classico and a Gran Reserva (15-year), but I've not tried those yet. There's a lot of info on their site - here's the Platino's page:
http://www.matusalem.com/platino.html

Cheers,
Rupe

Being Diabetic, I must keep my consumption of rum to a minimum. Rather than tempting myself with an array of different rums, I've pared it down to simply two that I use singly or together as needed:

Appelton Estates VX
Saint James Hors D'Age

Since the Mai Tai is my Tiki drink of preference, this works well for me.

I don't think anyone has yet mentioned One Barrel rum from Belize. It has a subtle, pleasing hint of brown sugar that works well in a lot of drinks. I would certainly use it more if it were a little easier to obtain. Good stuff.

Mr. Mark,
One Barrel is relatively easy to buy in California. Try HiTime Wines or Robert Burns Wines.

I feel about rum as do about coffee--it's mostly all good (except that #&%@ Starbucks). Flavored, unflavored, imported, domestic, cheap, expensive--I'm usually happy with it. But my desert island rum: Myers's Dark. No question.

Pyrat Rum XO Reserve the fine cognac of Rums.

There are many others I like....even pricier, but dollar for dollar this one of the tops.

Although I NEVER use it for mixing and as any good Scotsman will tell ya I only drink it NEAT!

I scored a 50ml sample of Santa Teresa 1796 at Rumfest in Ybor City. It's a great rum in the Spanish style. Medium dark with strong legs. Lemon pepper nose. Spicy and dry, without the usual oaky-whiskey overtones that most Caribbean rums get from their casks. I assume that this rum, or ron, is aged in barrels made from local hardwood. It's really a nice, interesting rum and worth finding.

I've been asked to help judge rums at The Tales of the Cocktail by the Minister of Rum, Ed Hamilton. The competition is scheduled for mid-July. I'll post a report here with all the news that's fit to print.
