- What dark rum for sipping?
I got a bottle of Appletons 12 yo for my b’day recently, and its a fantastic spirit, to mix it would be a waste.
I’ve also had a Jeffersons from Whitehaven in recent years which was good but not in the same league.
Oh, I found an unopened bottle of dark seal in my uncles house after he died – impressively alcoholic, but again not as good as Appletons.Posted 1 year agoB.A.NanaMember
The one that I think tastes like it’s already got a bit of cola in it is Rumbullion.
Apparently, Don Papa is very sipable full of cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and sugar. Altho the authenticity is questionable.
^El Dorado 12yo is probably the smoothest I’ve tasted.

I’ve been playing this game far too much!!!
My Rum shelf is now brimming with bottles!
My top 3 are:
Rumbullion – caramel flavour, slight vanilla, slightly sweet
Pink Pigeon – lighter in colour, more vanilla, less sweet
Plantation XO 30th anniversary – more ‘mature’ taste, less sweet still, but still a hint of sugar cane.
Others to consider are:
Red Leg – dirt cheap, can be had for about £13 a bottle. Sweet, vanillary and a bit fruity.
Kracken – it’s ok, a good ‘basic’ one
Pirates grog – can’t quite remember; I drank it, so must have been OK
I didn’t really like diplomatico, TBH.. nor mount gay XO

I’ve just ordered some of that.

I’ve also been asked for Pink Pigeon recently, so will have to look at ordering some, if it’s available from my supplier.Posted 1 year ago40mpgSubscriber
I’m blessed with having a pub a nice fatbike ride along the beach which has the most amazing selection of rums. And they keep bringing in new ones.
I think all the above are on the shelf, I’m gradually working through them. I’ll have another go tomorrow night.
I discovered pink pigeon last week, very good stuff. Riding home is often entertaining!Posted 1 year ago
