My hands down favorite are the Brinley line of flavored rum. I have been wanting to try the Santa Theresa Araka (coffee flavored) and Orange but I have yet to find them.

Santa Teresa Araku coffee is a winner, as is their Orange Rum Liqueur, which goes very well in a snifter after dinner.

Clement Creole Shrubb is a more delicate orange flavor.

Montecristo Spiced Rum makes a great holiday cocktail.

The orange, key lime and lemon flavored rums from Empire are great for cooking, making cocktails and sipping for a special occasion.

Taylor's Velvet Falernum is a classic for making Caribbean cocktails.

Foursquare spiced is also quite good.

I agree with Robert, the Montecristo Spiced rum is terrific! I have yet to try the Foursquare though.

For a nice banana flavor, the Canne Banane Brulee is nice. Its subtle and lite, not too sweet.

RedRum is good too, its my favorite rum "shot"

And my favorite flavored rum is Castries Peanut Rum Cream. Oh Castries... how I dream about you...

I forgot about the Castries! Damed fine stuff, for sure.

And I just realized that a friend came up from NYC and asked if I wanted anything, and I couldn't think of anything... NOW I remember the Castries! Argh!

Never heard about this one..but the name alone stir my imagination..and something with a subtle banana flavor that is not too sweet seems nice.
A spiced rum with flambeed bananas,could that be close?
