I am a Bay Rum lover but do not have much experience with trying many. I've been splashed with various unknown brands at barbershops, then I was given a large bottle of Stephan's Bay Rum by my barber. I tend to like it. I recently got samples from Garry of the Masters and Superior 70. I find them all good but very different. I think I prefer bay rums that are heavier on the bay and cinnamon but lighter on the cloves. I also like about any AS with witch hazel rather than alcohol. I am a Pinaud fan (The Club, The Veg so far) so I probably need to try the VI. I hear a lot of +/- about Ogallala. And I hear nothing but praise for Captains, so that is a definite must have.
So, for the more experienced "Rummies" here: Can you help me out of recommendations that might be classic but not overly clovey? Any other suggestions?
A good shave, properly done, leaves us in the right frame of mind to face the new day
