And as someone else pointed out, the Zacapa Solera 23 is pretty good, too. I prefer it to the Diplomaticos and the Zacapa Negro at around $42.00 a bottle at ABC liquor here in Fla.

Zacapa XO for a sipping rum, Zacapa 23 for a mixer/every day rum. El Dorado 12yr old is also a nice every day rum. Captain Morgan is a fantastic rum to serve... when you want your guests to leave! :P

Great discussion topic!

I swap between rye and rum and drink them neat. Currently, these are the bottles I'm working through:

• Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva

• Diplomatico Single Vintage 2002

• Foursquare Premise

• Bacardi Gran Reserva Diez

I've been reaching more for either the Diplomatico Reserva or Bacardi 10. To me, they have the classic rum flavors. The others have too much hardwood flavors to the point they seem like a bourbon.

I have had most of what's been posted and tried a few ( Ok more than a few) of may other kind. The "Hands Down" best I have ever had is Centenario 25 I tried it blind one day, then went back and bought their remaining 3 bottles. They also make a 30  that is more expensive but I prefer the 25. 

just my .02 worth here..

Came across this 12yo Foursquare. Cask strength at 118 proof.

Drinks more like a Bourbon, aged in ex-bourbon casks and at that ABV so no wonder. Still not overly hot and the rum essence is present.

Back label claims no sugar or other additives.
