I've recently relocated to sunny Miami, and I'm gravitating away from my drink of choice over the years (Scotch), as it just doesn't "feel" like a hot weather drink.<br />
<br />
I want to learn about rum. I'm not much for mixed cocktails -- my idea of a "mixed drink" is brown liquor and maybe an ice cube. So, looking for advice on good sippin' rums. I've enjoyed Pampero Aniversario and Zacapa Centenario.<br />
<br />
Looking to branch out and get educated. Let's hear it!

    When I went to St Croix a couple years ago we did a tour of the Cruzan facility and I had the Cruzan Single Barrel Rum. Prior to this the only liquor I really drink on the rocks is vodka so other than that I dont drink a lot of stuff on the rocks - whisky, scotch nothing like that. But wow, this really blew me away. Doesnt make it into my heavy rotation but on that day it definitely made it into my glass as I "relaxed" in one of their hammocks.

    I love 10 Cane and Cockspur. And I will never pass on a snifter of the Pampero. The best I have ever tasted was the Prichard's. I seem to really enjoy the aged or darker colored rums. I can't seem to get past the sterile taste of White rums (I tend to put diet coke in white rums). Maybe I just haven't gotten into a good one. A friend of mine swears by the Mount Gay Silver for sipping very cold. <br />
    <br />
    I would love to get my hands on a nice aged Cachaca

    Keep it coming, gents. I'm not much for the white rums -- it just seems to me that something I'm either going to have neat or over ice should be BROWN. :-) But I'm an equal opportunity sipper, so I'm open to experimenting.<br />
    <br />
    Sounds like I need to try a Cruzan Single Barrel,10 Cane, Cockspur. Will report back.

    I usually only drink it on vacation but I got a bottle of this for my birthday and from what I recall, it would get you pretty fired up. Best to drink when you are looking to cause some trouble.<br />

    The Kraken is good. I didn't enjoy straight (could be because it's spiced).....but it made an awesome rum & coke.

    Maybe that was my problem. Because I would always seem to drink it straight and hit the Kraken when I was already tanked. Then, I would go around and knocking over street signs and act like King Kong. Wife would eventually have to come find me on standing on a pool table hitting balls at people in the dive bar down the road.<br />
    <br />
    Good thing that bottle ran out....

    Goslings Black Seal is pretty good. Mixed with a little ginger beer, it makes a great Dark and Stormy.

    Flor de Caña is good. Younger stuff (7 year) on the rocks, and less need for ice as you get into the older stuff.

    Spoon. Tanduay sells rum you can buy in casks. You have to have a connection in the company or a bigger account.<br />
    <br />
    My friend has one. You can replicate the smoothness by buying the Tanduay product you like and refilling the small cask/barrel. Let it sit 3 months and your good to go.<br />
    <br />
    Still prefer single malts and vodka.

    Try Don Papa's as well. A little sweet so no real need for a mixer. Made from ingredients from the foothills of Mt. Kanlaon. I used to have to buy it in Bacolod. It is now available in S&R.

    If you ever get to Barbados, skip the Mount Gay tour and see St Nicholas' Abbey. Then, grab a bottle of their 12 year old and you'll wonder why you ever drank that swill from Mount Gay (which is utterly fantastic rum in its own right!).<br />

    Rum might as well be the official alcohol of Florida. In all my travels my favorite bottle of Rum is the following. For the price, there is nothing even close to it in terms of quality for such a small bounty.

    I picked up a bottle of this on Friday because of this thread. Really smooth with some caramel aftertaste. It’s not bad, but bordering on almost too sweet for my taste.

    I am more a Bourbon drinker, neat. But, I happened upon a bottle of Pyrat - the main one, not the really expensive one. As with Bourbon, neat. I find it very pleasant.
    Anyone else have opinions on Pyrat?
