Sunny&Rummy, great suggestions. Cana Brava is the other one I've got my sights set on.

AceExplorer, that's dedication my friend. What would it take to pry one of those bottles out of your grasp?

Hurc, I dunno how I missed this- I’m having trouble using my keyboard. I’m bursting out in laughter when I try to concentrate. Sorry Lance, but It is funny.
Cheers all

Oh, no David, it is funny! I hope no one took my remark seriously.

I had a Cana Brava daiquiri the other night and it was the best daiquiri I've ever had.

Back to the whites.... Hurricane did you every try Cana Brava?
I've been using the following:

SelvaRey (recommend by Chad at Bootlegger Tiki)

Plantation 3 year

Flor de Cana (for drinks where the white will be overshadowed anyway)

Eldorado 3

I like all of them.

Plantation seems to mix great in the fruity drinks. SelvaRey makes a really nice daiquiri. But the one I need is Cana Brava. I only had it once but it was fantastic. I see a few people using it in the "what are you drinking now" topic, but I can't find it at my local TotalWine. Might have to go down to Hi Time for a bottle. What do you all think?

I’ll have to try that SalvaRey-never tried a Panamanian rum.Most whites,imo, don’t have a lotta flavor. Since you’ve been messing with “Barrels O’ Rum” try Meyer’s Platnium or Blue Chair White. More flavorful than most whites without a strong alcohol taste.
Cheers

Flor de Cana has always been my go to but lately I've been experimenting with Cana Brava and Plantation 3 year with great success. I just spotted the Denizen white here locally and was wondering if anyone had an opinion on it. I'm a big fan of their Merchant Reserve.

My top three white rums are: Cana Brava, SelvaRey, and Denizen. I also use Don Q Cristal when I want something more neutral. Cana Brava really is exceptional and it is usually my go-to when I'm inventing new drinks.

The Denizen white rum is quite good. I've only had one bottle of it but I'd buy it again in a heartbeat if I saw it on a shelf. For some reason it and the Plantation 3-year are not easily found at any of my locals.

Diplomatico recently did a tasting at Cask and I have to say: their Blanco Reserva might be the best white rum I've ever sipped on. Absolutely delicious stuff.

Finally got a bottle of Cana Brava! What are the best showcase drinks for it, besides the classic Daiquiri?

Try it in a rum Saturn (regular Saturn recipe, but with rum instead of gin). It's great in drinks with delicate flavors since it's quite smooth and you don't really need to hide the alcohol. I almost used it in my Test Pilot last night, but decided not to waste it on something where it wouldn't shine. Ended up using Don Q Cristal instead.

Believe it or not Don Q provides a very smooth mojito.

I always feel bad saying I use Havana Club rums when you can't get em, I use Havana Club 3 in most tiki drinks but there are a few were it really sings - I'd love to know what you think of Cana Brava I these drinks:

- Sumatra Kula
- Hawaiia Kai Treasure (actually a cheaper Orgeat works better)

Also don't forget the Cuban Classics, Havana Club 3 also improves them:

- Cuba Libre
- Diaquiri
- Mojito
- Hemingway Diaquiri

Cheers!
