    Default Your Rum Choice for Under $30

    This is the second thread I've started on spirits this week. I hope people don't get the wrong impression that I'm a booze hound. Anyway, for under $30 USD, what are your preferred rum choices. Mine are as follows:

    - Barcelo Gran Anejo
    - El Dorado 12 Year

    If you like a heavy rum, Pampero Anniversario is a good one. But my favorite is one I found when I was in San Juan: Barrilito Three Star. Unfortunately, it is difficult to find in my area.

    The El Dorado rums are great, especially with cigars. I've also been drinking Pyrat XO Reserve, made by Patron. Those folks usually are known for their tequilas. Pyrat is hand bottled, numbered, and initialed. Good stuff

    I like Lemon Hart demerara rum for around $30. There are two kinds, the 80 proof and the 150 proof, both have a nice flavor but the 150 is really for mixed drinks.

    +1 on the Pyrat XO. Every time I drink that rum, the nose reminds of an over-ripe fruit punch. Love it!

    +1 for Pyrat XO, though I think it's little more than $30 in my area. Also a big fan of Capt Morgan Private Stock. Both are great on the rocks.

    Mount Gay--any variety. Best Rum value.

    +1 on Mount Gay...
    although my choice would be the Extra Old and they have evidently had a price hike recently.

    Quite tasty rum for the price. I find it for about $13.00...a steal.

    Really like Kilo rum, Capt Morgan Private Stock. Ive been meaning to try the Kraken just haven't got around to it yet.

    Around these parts I can get El Dorado 15 for around $30. It's the best rum I have ever tasted in the $50 and under category.

    Second choice is Santa Teresa 1796.
