One of these days I am going to break down and search to find one of these rums. I haven't had much luck yet.

Short answer, no, we can't get that one here in Radford.

If there is a trip to Venezuela at Christmas, I'll smuggle you back one - I think we were 4-5 bottles over the limit last time, whats another bottle?

:-O

I've got a bottle of the Santa Teresa, either got it here in MD or Florida, can't remember.

Nobody mentioned Pampero yet? That's another nice Venezuelan rum, should be pretty readily available too. I think it's similar to Zacapa, but not quite as sweet. I like it better.

Ron del Barrilito 3 Star is one of my all-time favorite rums. I like the dry, lighter style of Puerto Rican rums, this is the best I've had so far.

Rhum Agricole - Neisson, St James, La Favorite, Rhum Clement... all are great, and very different from every other rum you'll ever try. You owe it to yourself to pick one up if you come across it.

El Dorado 15 yr - Great cigar rum, smokey, heavy, full-bodied, stands up well to a heavy smoke.

Gosling's Black Seal - Cheap, available everywhere, delicious. Don't ever buy Meyer's Dark when Gosling's is sitting nearby.

Angostura 1919 & 1824 - I'm really liking these both a lot lately. The 1824 is a little more complex, the 1919 screams 'vanilla', but both are the drier style that I tend to prefer.

Pyrat XO - Not bad, but I have a hard time getting paste the citrusy/orange flavor. Almost seems too 'orangey' to be real. Great on ice though.

10 Cane - Only buy it on sale, but it makes a helluva mojito.

Of the sweet rums, I think I like Diplomatico a touch more than Zacapa, though they're awful close. Can't ever find Zaya (any Zaya), or Centenario in MD.

I'd love to get my hands on some HC, that's one that ain't exactly common around here. Maybe next trip overseas.


Now that there's a rum thread, someone needs to invite Che over here

I have been looking for Ron Zacapa for months now and cannot find it. I finally found a bottle of Zaya. I like that a lot.

My favorite at the moment is Zaya. I just wish I could compare the Guatemalan with the Trinidadian stuff. I've had both, and liked both, but really don't knwo what the difference was, as it was months between the time that I had them. Even my wife (not a rum drinker) will drink Zaya neat.

I've also had and liked Ron Matusalem Clasico.

HC 7 is another good one. Though I have had it side by side with Guatemalan Zaya, and preferred the Zaya. Just suited my palate better.

I know that I'll need to try some of the others that have been listed here, too

ron zacapa all the way. there is a local shop that pretty much has everything. i still need to try the HC15. it's so easy to just go to the store and pick up a bottle of zacapa though that i never really run out.

darrell, if you keep not having any luck i'm sure we could figure out something.

I poured some of the Santa Teresa last night, with a Famous Nic 3000, was a good night! Forgot how good that rum was, thanks for reminding me!

Recently tried the new Zaya, I never had the older version, but I was surprised how sweet it was, lots of vanilla... I liked it, but I have a serious sweet tooth, ask my dentist.

Another rum I enjoy is Saliors Jerry, a little SJ with coke and a wedge of lime on a sunny day at the pool.... nice.
