Default Favorite Rum

bourbon/scotch is pretty popular. but anyone enjoy rum?

i think good rum can rival a good scotch. and its usually much, much cheaper.

right now i'm drinking a Plantation Jamaica Old Reserve 2000.

some of my other favorites are:

El Dorado 15
Barbancourt 5-star
Smith and Cross
Lemon Hart 151
Saint James Hors d'age

Ron Zacapa 23 is by far the best sipping rum I've had.

man, that's nice. i haven't had the 15year. gone thru more than a few bottles of the 8. I think even that's a great value at $22.

barbancourt is such a distinct rum. i'm glad they didn't get permanently screwed during the quake.

If you're ever in St. Lucia, try Bounty rum. It's a light golden rum meant for mixing, but stands up well on it's own with a very distinctive flavor. It's great both mixed and neat, but you can only get it in St. Lucia as far as I know. And it's like

I had some 7 year flor de cana in Miami this year. It was pretty good but I don't think it was anywhere as good as scotch.

FDC 7 is pretty good. I just bought a bottle of the 12.

i don't think FDC 7 will rival a scotch, but at under $20 a 750 it's a damn good value.
