Default Favorite sippers

Feel free to hijack this thread if its already been done, but I couldnt find the title anywhere.

So what are some of your favorite sipping rums?

Maybe we can get a dialogue on some of these and maybe find some new ones for the liquor cabinet.


Some of my personal favorite include - Pyrat XO, Zaya 12 year, Mt. Gay XO, Santa Theresa 1796, and El Dorado Special Reserve 12 year

Every day is different. Yesterday was all about Diplomatico, I just couldnt stop. TOday... the Mt Gay XO perhaps, I forgot I had that in my collection at home, found it hiding in the back.

Generally the Angostura 1824, RdB-3, and Zacapa 23 are the usual suspects though.

RumBarPhilly- How is the Diplomatico? I see it constantly, but have yet to try it.. as memory serves at least. I have a buddy on the east coast that loves it, compares it to the Zaya 12 year, though slightly spicy and less fruity. Thoughts?

Default Diplomatico

Of all the wonderful rums we featured at our December tasting event -- Great Rum Makes A Great Holiday Gift (we sold 105 bottles in less than 2 hours), the number one brand sold was Diplomatico. When people try a few rums at a tasting and decide which one to buy, Diplomatico does very well. It's sweet, viscous, flavorful, creamy and not expensive. I consider it a dessert rum that plays well in a snifter, like Santa Teresa Orange Rum Liqueur.

I had it referred to me by Scotte from this forum. I special ordered it and gave it a go. The first time I had it, I didnt enjoy. I think i wasnt feeling well and any alcohol in me wouldnt bear well. But the other night, I had a little more and its got this sneaking sweetness to it that I never noticed. Its very complex, not like Zaya. I find Zaya much more one-dimensional (but what a good dimension that is!) I would compare it more to a Barbandcourt 15 year, but with a slightly bigger bite. It does have a nice mdeium to long finish as well.
