This is one of those things that can change day-by-day I guess. My current favorites are Lemon Hart Demerara (I've only recently been introduced to Demerara rums) and Saint James Royal Ambre.

I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority on the Royal Ambre as I've seen much more favorable notices for the Saint James Extra Old, but I'll defend Royal Ambre to the death. Especially when it's sitting next to Appleton Estate 12 year in my Mai-Tai.

Due to the recent Pyrat Pistol sale at Bevmo, I stocked up quite heavily. As a result, I can say that Pyrat Pistol is now clearly my favorite affordable sipping rum, over Pyrat XO (I once loved it but now feel it is too one dimensional), over Zaya / Ron Zacapa 23 (slight bitter after taste, but still acceptable), and over Diplomatico (almost great but tainted by very slight sulfur smell). Long live Pyrat Pistol.

EDIT:
okay, skip the Pyrat Pistol. My new favorite sipping rum is El Dorado 12yr Demerara, I like their 15yr Demerara too, it's a little less sweet and little more complex.

OH! Zafra Master Reserve 21yr is worth checking out too, very unique as it's aged in bourbon barrels.

Juist got back from my honeymoon in Saint Lucia. Don't know if it was the west indies or the new wife or the rum, but I fell in love with Admiral Rodney's extra old St. Lucia rum. yummy. brought two bottles home.

Depending if i'm sipping or mixing. I like Zaya,Pyrat XO,Meyers dark, and of course all of the Appletons. My current go to rum is Doorleys. It's a Bajan rum-great in a mai tai or with an ice cube in your finest snifter. Just bought a bottle ( very inexpensive) of La Negrita and a bottle of Origine. The cane for Negrita is from Martinique and shipped to France for distillation.At under 8 bucks(Total Wine Brea, Ca) I 'm gonna give it a try this evening. I already popped the screw-cap. has a surprisingly complex nose after you get past the first fairly strong whiff of alcohol. The "Origine" I know nothing about cept is was about ten dollars off the reg. 28 bucks at Albertson's. Report to follow when I wake up. I love summertime.
Cheers

My favorite is Captain Morgan Tattoo rum! It goes really well with Diet Fresca. You should try it some time! Let me know what you think!

Seriously, I like the El Dorado 15. Fantastic all by its lonesome, sublime in a rum Old Fashioned or Swizzle

I tried the "Origine" amber with Meyers dark and used the classic tv mai tai measurments.I wasn't totally happy with the the results. Oh, it was very good but I want an outstanding and exquisite one when I put a lot of effort into crafting a drink. I tweaked the amount of orgeat (increased a little,little bit) and I was very happy with the result. I'm anxious to try em out on my tiki freak circle and see if I get any positive comments. I'm going over to Albertson's and grab a couple more bottles while they are still on sale. 19 bucks as opposed to 28/29$
Cheers
