i don't think FDC 7 will rival a scotch, but at under $20 a 750 it's a damn good value.
I did enjoy sipping on it and it was a nice change of pace. I was surprised to see how cheap it is at the stores. I think it runs a little over $20 here but definitely good value.

Zaya is a 12 aged rum from Trinidad that is the best sipping rum I've had.

yeah, thinking now it probably is in the 20-25 dollar range. I haven't bought the 7 in awhile. not sure why, it's a great rum. the 12yr was about 30 even i think.

In the near future I plan on trying the krakken spiced rum and captain morgans special reserve
Kraken is delicious, it goes really well with lemonade. It also comes in a cool bottle.

My Bajan friend claims that it's the only rum worth drinking--a bold statement for the caribbean. Unfortunately I've never had the pleasure.

Agreed about the bottle, would look good with a mead in it
