You just gotta take my word and go get this rum:

Flor De Cana, Extra Dry 4 year old. Mixes beautifully and can be sipped straight. Great with just a dash of lime.

Flor De Cana 7 year old amber is the best Mojito mixer I've ever come across.

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...

Here's a nice little tipple for those who like to drink their rum pirate-style. It comes from a very old pub called The Bell
and they call it 'Winter Auberges', as it's meant for the colder months of the year. The recipe is very simple....just add two
measures of ginger wine to one measure of dark rum. They specified Crabbes ginger wine and Capt Morgan's dark rum, but I imagine it would be vastly improved with a decent demerara. You may want to experiment
with the measures, too.

Not really one for the Tiki bar, but as the nights get cold it'll warm you up and have you singing sea shanties in no time.

Someone has to speak up for Mount Gay. they have a "gold" verion too, don't they? Regardless-- it will always have a special place in my heart. And drinks.

Just had the opportunity to try the full Wray & Nephew range. Obviously a pleasure rather than a trial. While the rums are well known and highly rated, it was intersting to give their 'Rum Cream' a go. I guess they were pitching it at the 'Baileys' market, (You have Bailey's in the US?) as it's a sweet, thick, n'bcreamy rum combo.

Sadly, it's not as nice as it sounds. They use their overproof rum rather than their classy stuff, and the overproof over-rides the other tastes. Saying that, it's very sweet too, and there's a strong faux-butterscotch taste which soon kicks in. You soon find your taste buds fighting over sugar, artificial flavours, and the lingering taste of the overproof. A shame really as this could have worked with a smoother rum and more subtle ingredients.

You guys are gonna crucify me, but I have always loved good old dark Myer's (has sort of a single malt character). Bharbancourt would run a close second. And I have even tried a lot of rums (I have worked at two bars) but keep coming back to it. Redrum is pretty damned tasty, too. But Myer's for me.

Nothin' wrong with Myer's, man! Everyone has different tastebuds, so drink up and enjoy!

Cheers,

Uncle Arty

My current rum of choice is Mount Gay Barbados Sugar Cane Rum (also apparently labelled "Sugar Cane Brandy" in some areas...) Far and away the best rum I've ever had: simply excellent by itself or as the key ingredient to the best Mai Tai this side of Trader Vic's!
Myers's is an excellent dark rum (though Whaler's is a close second).
Can't argue with Appleton Estate, either, and have yet to taste a better demerara than Lemon Hart.

I've got quite a few rums on my Christmas list (hoping friends/family/Santa patronize Hi-Time this year!), including Mount Gay Extra Old, Barbancourt 15 year, Pyrat Pistol, Cruzan Estate Single Barrel, Monte Christo and Metusalem Gran Reserve. Anybody have any comments on any of these?

I have a fifth of Whaler's on the bar shelf. It's a good mixer.

I ashamedly have to agree with Myers'.

Whatever works, right?

My fave would have to be Sailor Jerry rum because of the hula dancer on the label. For taste I like coconut rum and Captain Morgan spiced rum.

Right now, I am drinking generic rum b/c I am dirt poor. And you know what? I can't tell the difference! If you're making cocktails, what difference does it make? It's not like you're going to taste it, really.

Begin flaming me... NOW!

To some extent, you're right, Trader Rick. There are some cocktails where the other ingredients are so overpowering that the subtleties of a decent rum are lost. Plus, when you are down to your last few bucks, a generic rum is usually better than no rum at all. Perhaps Tiki Centralites could pitch in a few 'cheap rum' reviews!
