I'll start.

Porfidio Plata! If they had described it as Mexico's answer to moonshine, mountain dew or corn whiskey I would have bought it for that reason. It was on sale for $20 down from $40? Label say "Pure Cane Rum" and "single-cane, triple distilled" Makes no mention of what the "cane" is.

Avoid at all costs. Buy the grocery store brand before this crap.

I know everyone has their own taste, even no taste at all. What are the other bad rums?

OK, I think I may have figured out what is wrong with your rum. It's tequila!

I avoid any rum that comes it what looks like a plastic Listerine bottle with a different label.

I am actually scared to try their tequila now.
Did they just pump the rum thru the tequila works?

Plastic bottles are not always a sign of bad hooch, as in this famous exception:





But cool labels on the other hand do not guarantee liquid gold:



Should have known that this discounter store rum was only good enough to cook with.

Worst I have had is easily "Conch Republic". I had to give it a try. It was so cheap. Some of my favorite rums are a mere $20-25 a bottle. But, whoa! This is bad stuff!

Its absolutely horrible, I don't like it, and many respected mixologists
don't like it.

why do you like it?
oh I am sorry.

just because something is popular,
doesn't mean its good.

Especially when it comes to music!

(Like that "internationally" famous group, The Rhesus Monkeys! They SUCK, but because they are buddies with a lot of people on this forum, the crap gets lapped up left and right! Pre-sale THIS!)
