If those three are not available, what is??? After those, it's kind of a shot in the dark... I also like Pere Labat from Guadeloupe if available there.

The DUQUESNE Rum Agricole is pretty tasty but only 40 percent alc, much prefer 100 proof for a classic Ti Punch !!!!

Duquesne sounds also interesting, but didn´t had the oppotunity to try this so far. It is sold here in the 50% Version. I also heared quite some positive things about Pere Labat 59%.

@Billy Bob: you can send me an pm if you need to know some good stores with a good variety and good prices.

I think I`ve to try all, thank you
@Barcelo thank you I know the shops. Since my favourite J.M. Blanc isn`t available for a while I like to try some new, beside those three.
Any other recommendations? Or which one you wouldn`t drink again?

Trois Rivieres (50%) is very good. Don't know if it's available in Germany.

I'm on a business trip to France and at the hotel I was staying at in Paris they mixed me a Ti Punch and used Trois Rivieres, which I had never seen or tasted before, so asked for a dram straight on the side, and hey not bad at all. Very pronounced nose and taste of rhum agricole. So I'm now in Burgundy, and before leaving Paris headed over to the closest Nicolas where it was (I think) the cheapest one on the shelf, can't remember if it was 16 or 18 Euros, but they also had Dillon on promotion for 20 I believe. Am now mixing Ti punches for my hosts in Burgundy with Trois Rivieres with great success. Think I'll need to find another bottle before I head back to the States....
