After months of curiosity, I finally found my average ranking score for all 13 of of my rum categories after 325 reviews. Here they are from best to worst! Hope this helps! And of course, those well versed in rum will take one look at this list and say that they could have told me so without all of the calculations.

Aged Semi-Dry (10-19 gpl of added sugar and the clear cut winner

Aged Dry (0-9 gpl of added sugar)
Overproof (ABV% >= 50%)
Agricole
Sugar Bomb (30-49 gpl of added sugar)

Cachaca (begins the middle group)
Aged Sweet (20-29 gpl of added sugar)
White

Spiced (begins the lowest of scores)
Gold Mixer
Coconut
Flavored

Black (the clear cut loser)

Ffffff

Captain Jimbo's Rum Project has lots of posted added sugar contents in grams per liter (gpl). A few reviewers on here also have their own hydrometer tests.
