I am looking for a new sweet aged rum, I have Ron 23, diplomatica reserve, and Zaya. Is there any others that are sweet?

I recommend the Ron Centenario 20-Year Rum. Too sweet for some reviewers, but exceptionally good in my opinion. I rated it a 10.
The Ron Centenario 20-Year is indeed a very good choice.
How about a Oliver's Optimus 25 yo, a real candy.
Had last time a Dos Maderas 5+5 P.X. in the glass, like a Diplomatico with little more wood taste.
Those are EXCELLENT alternatives, though the Centenario 20 is my personal favorite. :-)
What about rum liqueur, like Legendario Elixir de Cuba 7 yo, very smooth and very sweet.
Or some with orange flavour, I like the Clement Liqueur Creole or the JM Shrubb Liqueur d'Orange for desserts.
The Pyrat XO is also very sweet and full of orange flavour (but not everyone like it) ;-)
Don't lose your teeth !!!
El Dorado 15 is sweet as is the 12.
Try Plantation 20. But Legendario 7y Elixir de Cuba is definitely the sweetest.
Thank you all for the replies !!
Ron Zacapa rum
Plantation Barbados 5...and it's a good price.
A.H. Riise although some say it's way to sweet... I love it.
Others: Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15, Presidente, Ophyum and indeed Zacapa and Dos Maderas
Best sweet rums for me??A.H. Riise X.O. Reserve Limited Edition Sauternes Cask Rum and Silverfleet. Both rums tested well but they are very sweet.
Privateer Silver has a sweet banana flavor
Unfortunately, there are many sweetened rums on the market today, as sugar is exceptional in masking the various defects in a distillate and people today in general have very sweet tooth. Sweet rums are selling better, since people often don't really want to taste the alcohol, hence the recent phenomenon of "Rum as Liqueur" (RAL).
Many "Rons" of the Dominican origins are sweetened, basically anything from Oliver and Oliver, Zacapa, Zafra, but also reputable brands like El Dorado.
However, I have a proposition for you. You can get your favorite flavor profile much cheaper, as these rums are often heavily overpriced for what they offer. Buy a cheap rum that is not outright nasty, like Havana Club etc. , and mix it with simple syrup according to your taste preferences - you will see that you will soon arrive to that "luscious, rich, warm and smooth" flavor profile people like so much, and at significantly lower cost. After all, you are only doing what these producers do, so it's right that you keep the money in your own pocket!
