Thanks for the request! Only a few other reviewers here print the added sugar content of rums. I have come to the conclusion of rating 0-9 gpl of added sugar as being dry, but the purists would complain about this for not being totally zero. For rums with 10-19 gpl of added sugar, these are considered by me to be semi-dry. From 20-29 gpl of added sugar, these are indeed sweet (like Plantation XO). The sugar bombs like DRE and ED12 have 30-49 gpl of added sugar. Any "rum" having more than 49 gpl of added sugar is considered to be flavored with Malibu Coconut being the worst offender at 100 gpl of added sugar.

So where do I get my added sugar values from? Good old reliable Captain Jimbo's Rum Project and here is the link!

I know that you asked for a list, but I have almost 200 rums in my spreadsheet with known amounts of added sugar. Eight of them are considered flavored since they have more than 50 gpl of added sugar. I have 91 rums listed and varying between 45 gpl and 2 gpl of added sugar. Captain Morgan Private Stock is the worst offender with Zacapa 23 hot on it's heels. I also have 91 rums with absolutely 0 gpl of added sugar. This entire list is simply too large for this discussion.
