    has anyone tried any of the Dogfish Head rums?
    Ive had 2 of the dogfish rums, the wit spiced, and the brown honey. Im not a huge rum drinker but I find both of these especially the brown honey to be very drinkable. Plus there less the $30 here so they are very reasonable priced. I actually just picked up 2 bottles of the brown honey because its the hardest to find of the 3

    Re: RUM

    Finally got around buying the Ron Zacapa 23, but at $47.00 a bottle it better be good. If it is, its going to be an online purchase item from now on.

    I was going to post a picture, but it keeps telling me that its over the limit in size even tough I've posted larger pictures before. Hum...anybody?

    How was the Zacapa Giampiero (from now on you will be known only as G to me!!)? I have had issues from time to time with uploading pics, but I dont know why.

    I finished off my bottle of Goslings black seal last week. I liked the goslings, but I had to use it as a mixer. I drank mostly dark and stormys (2oz Black Seal / 5oz ginger beer over ice) and a couple Rum & Dr. Peppers. I found I didnt really care for the taste neat or on the rocks.

    I picked up a bottle of Bacardi Oakheart today ($16) and enjoyed a glass on the rocks with my PDR Oscuro. I really like the Oakheart both as a mixer and a sipper, and for $16 / 750ml its MUCH cheaper than Zacapa (but NOT in the same class). I think Bacardi did a pretty damn good job going after Capt. Morgan in the spiced rum segment with this one. I wont buy the Capt. regular any more if I can get this instead (I dont like to sip Capt.)

    Re: RUM

    I am an odd case as I enjoy a dark rum quite a bit, but also enjoy really good bourbons (Woodford Reserve is my poison). It seems that most are either or.

    My everyday rum is Sailor Jerry. I drink a lot of it. I love the prominent vanilla smell and taste in it and I definitely can't complain about the proof. I do NOT mix SJ. If it is hot out and it is day time and I don't have my next mentioned rum on hand, you may catch me making a Dark & Stormy with it.

    For mixing, I have been enjoying making Dark & Stormy's out of The Kraken. I find this rum to be very good for that.

    For an everyday dark rum, I like Mount Gay. I think it is based on a trip I took to Barbados in 2009 in which I partook heavily in this brands rum, including my time on the factory tour. For me, it mixes very well.

    High end, premium sipping rum preference, as everyone else has mentioned here...Zacapa of course.

    Re: RUM

    For those of you who have had both... is there a distinct difference between Zaya and Zacapa? I've had Zaya before and I found it to be great. It was very smooth and very delicious. At $10 more per bottle, would the Zacapa be that much better?

    Well Tim...I liked the Zacapa more than the average rum, but the taste was very reminiscent of a bourbon IMO. It was very heavy on the spirit and less so on the spices and sweetness. I paired it with a cognac infused cigar first, and the day after with a Cohiba Siglo VI. It paired better with the siglo than it did with the cognac infused cigar, but I'll try the last third of the bottle with some more cigars. Next buy is going to be the Goslings or the Kraken, but I'll keep the Oak Heart in mind.

    I have tried both multiple times and IMHO Zacapas is much better. Whether or not 10 bucks better, only you can tell.

    I'm a huge Sailor Jerry fan. I also enjoy Captain Morgan Tattoo, but the best rum I've ever had was some I bought at the duty-free shop in Port au Prince. Haitian rum rocks!

    Re: RUM

    I hope it's not too late to jump on this thread. Like many, absolute fav is Zacapa. But I recently tasted a new rum called Kirk & Sweeney, aged 12 years, i think from the DR. Liked it a lot and under $30.
    Frequently wrong but never in doubt!

    Re: RUM

    I will start this off by saying I am the most diehard rum drinker I know. 20 years of rum 'n cokes, rum on the rocks.......it has been a fun adventure. Zacapa is definitely one of the finest rums. Zaya is my favorite go to rum. At. $29.99 a bottle it has got to be the best value per ounce. But if money was no option every body should have bottles of Zacapa 23 Zaya, Ron Botran, Plantation 20yr, Angostura 12 yr, Brugal L.E., Capt. Morgan Private stock, Appleton Est. 21yr, Zafra and sooo many other.

    But to start off I would go in this order.

    1. Capt. Morgan Private stock
    2. Ron Botran
    3. Zaya
    4. Zacapa

    I think the last 2 you should be alternating nights to see which you fall in love with first.

    But to sample out I would definitely start out with Zaya

    I don't care for it neat, or on the rocks (plural), either. But over just a single ice cube and allowed to sit for a couple of minutes, it's one of my favorite sipping drinks.
