Default Rum Suggestions?

Just checking out the state of everyone's liquor cabinets.

I have really been into fresh Mojitos lately (especially since mint grows so well in the summer). I have been making an awesome watermelon mojito using frozen chunks of watermelon instead of ice.

Anyway, I ran out of my really tasty rum I got in Belize (One Barrel Rum). I've got to go to the liquor store this weekend to replenish and thought would ask for suggestions. No Bacardi or Captain Morgan crap, I want a good mellow rum (possibly a spiced rum) with great flavor. The One Barrel I just polished off was very smooth, and had the smell/taste of vanilla. I would like to find something interesting like that, without spending $40.00 a bottle if possible.

Any suggestions?

I LOVE RUM!



Go for Sailor Jerrys. Its stronger than captain and cheaper! It tastes just as good too, maybe a bit more vanilla-ey. But its real close.


I used to only be a capitano guy, however now I usually buy Sailors. Stronger and cheaper work great for me.



I have heard the Krakken is a pretty good rum too, with a hint of cherry instead of the vanilla, but I have yet to try it.

If the LQ does not have any of those, a decent cheap rum to get you buy would be Ron Rico...It works.

I bought a bottle of Cruzan Black Strap... I couldn't finish it. Blech...

I'm more of a Whiskey, Gin, Tequila and even Vodka guy in favor of rum.

Sailor Jerry is the select frat boy/sorority girl drink at the University of Denver.

When it comes to rum no one does it better than Dominicans in my opinion:

Sailor Jerry's..really?

Really?

Appleton VX is a good middle of the road Rum (out of Jamaica) or I'll second the Captain Morgan Private Stock.

Ron zacapa is arguably the best rum you can get.

Goslings for dark and stormies

I like Ron abuelo too (dark as well)

Will post more later.

The key with rum is the quality goes in the opposite direction of the rank of the name on the bottle.

Monarch < Admiral Nelson < Captain Morgan < Sailor Jerry

Not sure where The Kraken fits into this equation (animal less than sailor?) , but I had some a few weeks ago and it's pretty damn good.

Flor de Cana extra dry is a pretty good white rum for mojitos (not sure why anyone would want spiced rum in a mojito). It's about the same price as Bacardi Superior.

As I said in the OP, it started as a mojito, but then became a semi-frozen Wetermelon/Lime/Mint rum based drink. The rum I was originally used was One Barrel Rum (made in Belize). It didn't announce itself as "spiced," but definitely had a vanilla aroma. The only Rums I have tried that are similar in flavor declare that they are "spiced." It doesn't need to be heavily flavored, but the vanilla hue sure adds to the drink I created.

As I said, not a straight up mojito, but based on the same recipe. The Watermelon actually cuts out any sugar or simple syrups, so in a way - it's not as sweet which I like.

There is something about Sailor Jerry that makes sorority girls very easy. We're talking so easy it's annoying.
