    I would hope it has already been stated but the answer is Zacapa.

    Great minds DrP! Was just about to write about the virtues of Seadog. Very sippable indeed and at £15 a throw definitely worthy of a punt.

    Mount Gay have just recently changed both the Black Barrel and XO so need to try them again

    I discovered Black Balla recently. Wow. It’s like black treacle. Imagine Diplomatico Reserva if it was reduced down a bit.

    I also bought a bottle of Dark Matter, holy crap, that’s awful. It’s just like someone’s thrown a bag of cloves in the cask.

    That Plantation 5yr old is great. However concur with Dark Matter comment above, mouthwash!

    Don Papa is odd. I really like it but can understand the doubts about its provenance and what exactly has been added..

    Got my eyes on a bottle of RL Seale 10yr, apparently it’s the bees.

    PSA: If you haven’t been watching, Mount Gay changed the recipe of Black Barrel so its now left in Bourbon barrels for longer and has older/ pot stilled content.

    Anyway, its currently reduced on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mount-Gay-Black-Barrel-Double/dp/B085WJY6K2/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=black+barrel+rum&qid=1598296107&sr=8-1

    Its not a sipper thats for sure.

    But chuck in some fresh lime juice and a splash of ginger beer and its bloody fantastic.

    I went to Costa Rica at the beginning of the year and drank some lovely rums. Brought back a bottle of Centenario 30yr old which the most sippable rum I’ve had.
    I can’t find it anywhere back here though so I’m having to ration it until I can afford to go back to Costa Rica!

    @muttley109here you go. May be cheaper to go back to Costa Rica!

    Bloody hell! I bought the 30yr, 25yr and a 20yr together for £118 in San Jose airport.

    St Nicholas Abbey is one of the best I have had. The St Lucia distillers 1931 is also good. Week on week is the m and s bajan rum, really nice for the price, quite sweet as opposed to delicate.
