Ron del Barrilito "Superior Especial" Puerto Rican Rum

Full flavor along with sweet, nutty, oak and carmel. A bit harsh.

43% Alcohol

Rating:  80 (not recommended)

Zaya Gran Reserva 12 Year Old Trinidad Rum

Carmel, spice, vanilla, oak and really smooth.  This is a complex rum in complete balance.

Royal Saint James Ambre St. James Rum

Hot with spice, vanilla, earth and a lot of water on the palate.  Not something I would want to sip but blended it would work.

45% Alcohol

Rating:  85 (recommended)

Bacardi "8" Ron Reserve Superior Bahamas Rum

Floral, oak, vanilla, hazel nuts and subtle spices.  Smooth overall and very drinkable.

Cruzan Spiced Rum "9" St. Croix Rum

Spice, smoke, oak and vanilla come together on a complex offering which is a really good value (under $12).

Tommy Bahamas Gold Rum

Vanilla, oak, floral and spice.  Not real concentrated and lacks complexity.

Rating:  85 (Not Recommended for the price)

Mount Gay Rum "Eclipse" Barbados Rum

A little heat with oak, hazelnuts, and water.  Not as concentrated as I would like and a good candiate with a mixer. 

40% Alchohol

Rating:  85 points (Your call)
