    Is that the Tiffany drinks cabinet? Was £500 but since the Patek special edition came out it's worth £20k.

    El Dorado 12yr is often discounted to £30 on Amazon and at that price is pretty unbeatable - great for sipping and in an Old Fashioned.

    For sipping/treat:
    El Dorado 15yr
    Ron Zacapa 23
    Havana Club Seleccion Maestro
    Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva


    For cocktails:
    Mid/dark (Dark and Stormy etc): Diplomatico Mantuano or Havana Club 7yr. If you're into Rum and Coke then imo Havana Club 7yr and a twist of lime is unbeatable to make one.
    Light: (Mojito etc) Havana Club 3yr

    I like Havana Club 7 year. Picked some up at the distillery in Havana, very smooth.

    Only ever bought one bottle of rum - Pusserís Rum.

    Really liked the clean taste - totally unlike all the Ďcookingí rums I had tried before.

    Iím much more of a whisky drinker than a rum drinker, but Angostura 1787 rum is extremely moreish. Itís a 15 year old blend. One to drink neat.

    No idea what it’s like, but I picked up this from NC last week. (When I travel I like to try the local stuff that we can’t get back in the uk.)



    I’ll update once I’ve had a taster.

    …likewise with the whisky

    Basically, it's rum with a hit of cinnamon, lots of sweetness & a hint of vanilla.

    Not terrible, but not great either.

    I'd imagine it could work quite well in the right cocktail... or maybe I need another to reassess ...
