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.
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.
