Hey RumRatings! I'm looking for *your* favorite Rum Old Fashioned! Something that brings out the best of your favorite Rum has had me hooked on Rum for almost two years now. All you need is quality rum and true ingredients to get a kick-ass traditional Mai Tai, but to express Rum in a Old Fashioned Cocktail has had me stumped.
My current favorite has been El Dorado 12 yr with Demerara sugar, and Bittermen's Elemakule Tiki Bitters, or at least 2 dash Ango / 1 dash Chocolate Bitters. The baking spices and molasses/ caramel are exactly the tasting notes I look for in my old fashioned cocktails, but I know there's much more to the Rum World than cinnamon and vanilla.

Good question, wish more places offered a drink like this - wonder if any RR folks have found a great recipe?
