    Ron Z and Pyrat are more of a straight sipping rum. The Appleton I can go either neat or with coke. JMHO

    Prefer premium rum neat...Ron Z, Pyrat, HC7, Zaya, Barbencourt in that order. As a mix, HC reserva or a spiced rum like Captain Morgan is more to my taste.

    Does anyone like Parrot Bay? I am normally a Jack Daniels man.

    I remember drinking a lot of Parrot Bay and Pineapple juice quite a while ago.

    I live by Jim Beam, But my mother-in-law went to St.Kitts and brought back pint sized bottles of rum with no labels on them. It just had a date on the cap. Was actually good but very strong.

    So my choice is "no-name-bottle".

    I seldom drink rum straight.

    My all-time favorite rum to mix with coke is:

    Myers

    Nice Jamacian DARK rum :thumbs:

    I'm a big fan of the hard to find British Navy, Pusser's Rum. Been made for 200 years, it's very good, especially with smokes, it's not spiced and it's very clean.

    Y'all are on the wrong side of the world. Tanduay EQ Special Dark (Phillipine Rum about 50 cents a liter 'cause it is the PI) and Mekong (Thai rum they call a whiskey because it's brown rather than clear - about 3 bucks a liter) are defintiely the tops of the heap. I also like mixing rums - 1 shot Parrot Bay and 2 shots Tanduay in a Dr Pepper is wonderful. Add in a Cuaba or CAO Brazilia and I'm all set.

    However, in the end, I am still partial to Soju as my number 1 liquor!

    Man, you must have consumed too much of that Tandy (as we used to call it), it isn't even close to Ron Zacapa or Appleton Estate 21. Hard to beat for the money for sure but not world class by any stretch.
