Only thing I really miss here in Sweden is a good but cheaper alternative to Appleton Extra 12. Now I have to use the 12 for any drink that calls for Dark Jamaican. Oh, and we don't have any 151 proof rums here either but I've stocked up on those so I'm good for years to come.

Klas, you are fortunate that you seem to be able to freely get Havana Club rums. Here in the US we have to deal with a trade embargo, and Cuban Havana Club products are very hard to come by.

I'm with you Klas, to be able to get an 'everyday' dark Jamaican that is good in almost all situations (like Coruba) in the EU would be good. I regularly switch between Appleton 12 / 8 / VX / Myers depending on the drink - VX or Myers getting the most use, the 8 & 12 being used less.

AceExplorer, the Havana Club rums are good but there really are some equally fine alternatives available.

I forgot that we also have Myers's here but I only use it for drinks that explicitly calls for it. The Appleton V/X isn't really an alternative for dark Jamaican in my book but more of a gold rum. I find it really ridiculous that our government monopoly liquor stores offers a selection of 260 different rums but only have two dark Jamaican's in the lower price class (Captain Morgan and Myers's).

Wow, I thought I had a lot till I read some of the ones on here...

my current collection:

Mount Gay Eclipse
Mount Gay Special reserve
Appleton VX
Appleton 21 year (well I had some…)
Cruzan Aged white (excellent well IMHO)
Cruzan Aged Dark (really more of a gold I think)
Myers Dark
Myers Platinum (bought it to see if there was anything I could use if for, there isn’t)
Pussars Navy
Bacardi Special reserve
Bacardi 151
Bacardi Silver (left over from before I was clued in to Cruzan, I think it must be 3 years old…)
Lemon Hart 151
Sailor Jerry
Kraken

Being in the San Francisco area I have pretty good access to a lot of good rums, though if anyone knows where I might pick up some Lemon Hart 80 proof I’d be obliged. I’ve actually tried a lot of the more recommended whites like Fluer de Cana and 10 Cane but so far as I can tell there’s not much call for them in most tiki drinks, Cruzan is cheaper by a mile and maintains the same taste profile in mixed drinks.

I often think that during Tiki Oasis I should lead a group of out-of-towners down to Tijuana to get Havana Club rums. But then I think I'd probably lose someone down there and get blamed.

Arriano, you won't get blamed if others in your group actually *want* to lose that someone! hahahaha...

This is not true. J Wray Overproof is a bit of an acquired taste, but it is a unique rum that definitely has a well-deserved place in a rum bar.
