Which has been your favorite rum distillery tour, and why did you like it so much? With travel restrictions lifting, I need sun, sand, sea, and rum.

I enjoyed Appleton the most. Cruzan was nice too. Those were the only 2 I was on. Appleton gives the full layout of how rum is aged and made. Cruzan a bit more simplistic, but still worth it if you're on the island. Cheers!

I’ve only been on one tour and it was great, cause it was at the Antigua Distillery Ltd(ADL) that’s producing my number one favourite rum English Harbour. Unfortunately they don’t offer tours, so you got to be introduced by someone. In my case the Swedish importer helped me out by writing to them and introduced me.
Besides the distillery visit, Antigua is a great island for vacation with all their beaches, nice places to visit and not at least the tax free area in St. John.

I want to try some dark tourism in abandoned distilleries of Demerara and Caroni one day.

I visited some distilleries in La Réunion:
 Savanna, saw the sugar factory, the fermentation tank, the top of the Savalle column, a part of the barrel storage and the nice shop. Unfortunately, not the heart of the distillery.
 Riviere du Mat, they just moved to the new place and I saw nothing at all.
 Isautier, saw just the museum "saga du rhum" and had a tasting, nothing more.

My number one wished distillery tour, not done yet, is to visit the Rivers Antoine distillery in Grenada which is a living museum. It’s a distillery which’s operated almost as it was done when it started up 1785 without electricity or temperature control driven by a waterwheel and heated with Bagasse.

I'm highly recommend La Réunion if you:

 - Like rum (Savanna, a great distillery)
 - Like steep mountains (highest altitude 3071 meters, Piton des Neiges)
 - Like narrow, steep, winding roads (400 curves to Cilaos, I'd like to do it again with a motorbike)
 - Like extreme heat (choose the travel time wise)
 - Like to hike in great nature (one of the three crater has no roads and can be reached only on foot)
 - Like to pay in Euro (part of France and the most southern point in the EU)
 - Speak a little French or Créole (or you use a translator)
 - Don't like to hang around on sandy beaches (just a few beaches, the rest of the coastline is closed, because of steep coast with basalt rocks, extreme currents, sharks)

Oh, I forgot to mention the friendly, lovely people live on the island. Also the Multikulti thing, specially the food. A crossover from French, Indian, Chinese, African and Créole cuisine.
I also forgot to mention the volcano (picture, alt. 2350 m) it's like on another planet.
