So what are your favorite rums? A quick search for “rum” did not show up any threads on the subject.
A friend recently gave me a bottle of Ron Zacapa, a rum aged at 7,000’ in Guatemala. Wonderful sipping rum!
Drank a lot of Barbancourt rum in the Bahamas, frequently in Goombay Smashes, but it is a great sipping rum, too.
And yesterday I came across “Shellback Rum”. Talk about a gimick! But it worked - I bought a bottle for a friend who did the crossing last year.
A great standby is Mt. Gay Rum, with tonic and lime. Of course, it is above 90 degrees, then gin becomes an option…
