Zinfandel Cask Blend
Confused but now converted.
I bought this after reading all the rave reviews claiming this rum to be amongst the best available. I have to say on my first tasting, I couldn’t see
XO 20th Anniversary (old bottle)
This has everything you could want and more. Oak, vanilla, chocolate, coconut and sweet, but not to sweet. No discernible burn and a long lasting aft
Superb sipping rum.
What's not to like about this rum. Personally rate this as the best I have sampled. It's got a great aroma, taste is also right up there, smooth and
Top shelf treat.
Picked this up in Dom Rep recently at duTY free. Could possibly be referred to as DREs little brother. Not as sweet but certainly has a lot of similar

Currently on sale at Sainsbury's for £32:50 and I would say it's a steal at that price. Mildly vanilla, smoke and oak and possibly the mildest bur

In the glass it has a lovely golden colour, slightly dark, with legs that cling to the glass. This made me think it might be sweet, but I was surprise
Smith and Cross
Old fashioned rum?
Let me say from the start that this is my first taste of 57% proof, to me it’s the taste before the strength. For a rum that’s so light in colour, it
Best Captain afloat.
This one has taken me totally by surprise. I will admit to thinking that Capt Morgan was just a cheap mixer, until that is I came across this little b
Smooth sipper to be enjoyed and not hirried.
Had to send off for a bottle of this quality rum, not being able to source it locally. Masters of Malt, £59/$76 delivered. First thoughts on opening

Really enjoyed my first taste of this offering from Antigua. From the first look at the classy bottle, a solid proper cork and a wonderful colour, i w
XO Extra Old
One of Barbados finest.
I cannot imagine a rum my cabinet without this little gem in it. From the amber colour to the smooth taste it hits all the marks. The longer you can
Money very well spent.
After reading several reviews I finally managed to get a bottle, £28 delivered,Drinkshop.com. Price will no longer be a guide when choosing a new rum
Strong views on Pyrat.
Well I was certainly surprised to read these reviews, rating from 1 to 10!!!!! It was my first taste of " proper sipping " rum and to this day remain
If your looking for a rum to act as a benchmark against all others, look no longer. Full of flavour, a mild bite, warms all the way down and a taste
Great sipping rum.
Another winner from Guyana. From the first sip you realise this is a premium sipper. Full of fruit flavours, a deceptively mild burn, lingering tast
Rum for a purpose.
I bought this only to try a “ authentic dark & stormy”, and have to say I’m not disappointed. It’s a full bodied rum that probably shines as a mixer,
Ratings go from 1 to 10 amongst our fellow rum drinkers within this site so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised with my first
Another Dom Rep winner.
Very well presented in a nice bottle, with a cork that you really have to tug out. It’s a dark amber, almost red at times colour, with good legs in t
A rum for all occasions.
Unmistakably Cuban from the moment you open the bottle, it has a aroma that is full of fruit and a suggestion of being older than it is. Perfect to d
Another winner from 4 square.
Classy bottle, lovely mahogany colour, crisp, naturally sweet, nothing added, slight banana, vanilla & oak. No question of mixing this one, enjoy it
Reliability from Mt Gay.
This has to be the most flexible of all the rums from this famous distillery. It’s perfectly acceptable neat, with a ice cube or water, it also makes
Something different, but also familiar.
This is a assault on your senses which is different but also very familiar. If like me you enjoy Don F Res Exc, then this is where it is familiar to
7.5 is fairer.
For a "supermarket rum" this has to be by far the best I have found so far. Vanilla, caramel and so easy to drink. It's very light colour tells you i
Versatile sipper, maybe ?
This rum has a really good dark colour, almost a hint of red. Good legs in the glass, and a pleasant fruity, woody aroma on the nose, a hint of vanill

Always stayed away but from spiced rums in the past, but spotted this on sale in M&S, 20% off, so thought I'd give it a go. (£26:50). Pleasantly surp
Flor de Cana
From the classy bootle, to its golden colour this is a “sippers delight”. Super smooth, vanilla, caramel, oak, a gentle burn , what’s not to like. R
Tried this for the first time recently whilst out on catamaran all day off Dom Rep. Really enjoyed it, found it to have a little natural sweetness,
Not sure at first sip.
Have to say it’s packaged in one of the best bottles, especially liked the waxed cork. Golden colour, average legs on the glass. At first sip I th
Estate No 10
Is it me ?
I feel a little bit disappointed with this rum. Good solid bottle, proper rum colour, but, Admittedly my “ nose” is not the best, but I’m struggling
Slightly disappointed in this rum, I expected a bit more. Decent enough sipper by itself, woody and a intense flavour, but doesn’t quite do it for me
Not quite as smooth as it's older brother, but for a 5yr old it's a lot smoother than some other older rums. Great nose, very slight burn that fades
This one took me by surprise, certainly not as sweet as I expected, in fact I found it quite dry. Good colour, legs that cling to the snifter, and w
I picked this up last week in duty free in P. Plata airport. $15 / £11:50. Smoother than I expected at the price. Perfectly drinkable either neat or

The Forgotten Cask
I expected more.
Bit of a let down really. Nice colour, good aroma but I found it to be harsher on the throat than I expected. Warms you through, but for the price I f
Not the best from Appleton, but neither is it the worst. It has a real rum aroma that promises slightly more than it delivered. Smooth enough to dri
Too much whiskey taste.
Let me start by saying that I have never tasted whiskey, I simply cannot get past the smell, eugh. This has far too much of the whiskey/bourbon tast
Another rum from HC that's easy to drink. I don't get the same alcohol smell that most people seem to mention with this rum. Maybe a little vanilla.
Limited Edition Eclipse Nautical
Mount Gays mixer.
A great rum for mixing. I found it ok by itself, but not as good as other MG rums, most of which seem smoother. Possibly the best mixing rum I've come
Not really sure.
Not sure if I’m disappointed or not. Not as dark in the glass as expected, with plenty going on in the aromas. Smooth enough with little if any bu
This is darker than my normal choices, but from the first nose, you realise it’s a solid old fashioned rum. Just about smooth enough to sip over ice

Gran Anejo Guatemala & Belize
The Plantation name generally speaks for itself and guarantees a superior rum. I’m sorry but this one is without doubt is the biggest let down so far
Not yet convinced.
Read a lot of reviews that absolutely rave about Kraken so I decided to give it a go, Sainsbury's £20, reduced from £23. Love the colour and the nose
Admiral Benbow Superior Tot.
One to forget.
I stumbled across this "rum" whilst looking for something else and decided to give it a try. The price, £12, should have started alarm bells ringing.
