Not denigrating either of those (drink what you like), but they are more like liqueurs. They have an insane amount of sugar added to them (35-40 grams of sugar per liter - a teaspoon of sugar is around 4.2 grams).Lastly, for you Rum lovers, I highly recommend Dos Maderas 5+5 Triple Aged Rum. I paid $39 for the bottle which in Connecticut is the same price point as Diplomatico Reserva, one of my favorite rums. I think the Dos Maderos is going to replace it as my "go-to" sipping rum.
Rum is weird. Depending on its origin, there can be no rules or strict rules, but as with any distillate when it comes off the still there is no sugar in it.
