Get the 1.75 for $18 when your mixing on a budget. Gold virgin island rums are pretty sparse but called out for classic tiki drinks such as Nui Nui, Penang Afrididi, Vicious Virgin, Port Au Prince.
Preferably use Cruzan’s Diamond or Single Barrel but this will suffice for a party or when you’ve already dulled your senses. As always fresh fruits go a long way in bumping up the cocktail.

It’s cheap, easy to find, comes in a large bottle, and doesn’t taste like crap. It’s the perfect rum for a rum n’ coke.

For an entry level, opening price point this is a quality rum. Just sweet enough, mellow easy. It's a lot of rum at a reasonable price.

Nothing high quality, but it is amazing for the price point. Good as a daily mixer.

This is a reasonably smooth, light to light-medium body. Some vanilla tone, and lightly sweet, with a touch of baking spice and mild citrus notes. Works great as a mixer in Tiki when a gold VA is called for, and can sub nicely for gold Puerto Rican too. Can't beat it for the price.

This a smooth dark rum that enjoy on a daily basis. It is smooth with a flavor I enjoy in a Cuba Libre.

Great taste, has a nice bite to it for sure. Definitely on the cheaper side, hence the price, but still a very solid rum nonetheless.

OK, first the price - can't be beat. This is the best rum for the money and I'd take it over many more expensive rums. That said, it's not going to wow you with flavor, but it's not too sweet (which is my preference) and it is smoother than most for drinking on the rocks. Since Myers was my default rum, this has definitely replaced it!

This rum has a rummy, smooth flavor. It has some vanilla notes from the oak. It does taste pretty sweet, but in a good way.

This rum is light in body and in taste. Like drinking straight alcohol. Needs to be heavily mixed to be tolerable.
