Looking for Rum suggestions

I've been thinking of adding a few new spirits to keep on hand. I've been in the mood for Rum lately, but I know very little about them. Does anyone have suggestions of a decent bottle of sipping rum? Something fairly readily available and not overly expensive?

Thanks

I like Matusalem Gran Reserva, Bacardi Solera is interesting and inexpensive, it has a pleasant banana after taste, Flor de Cano 7 is also a good fit for your request.

For a little more and maybe sometimes tougher to find Zaya or Zacapa I’d say got the bill for quality and value for the price.

Ron Zacapa Sistema Solera 23 is quite good, and around $36 around here. I've heard Flor de Cana is a good brand and I think their bottles tend to run cheaper.

Ron del Barrilito! Its almost a cognac. This is not a “add mixer” type rum......Light this! brought it to A Quad State Herf’s about 5 years ago and I’ve been buying it ever since. It’s a slipping type drink. Unbelievable!

If you want rum and not a sugared liqueur, try Mt. Gay. Their black barrel rum is rather good and relatively inexpensive, Appleton 12 year, or any Foursquare/Doorly's rums.

Ron Zacapa 23 Solera is excellent and about $45 here. Dos Maderas 5 + 5 is my current favorite and about $40. In the lower price ranges, Vizcaya, Cayman Brothers, and Flor de Cana are all quite good. Ron de Matusalem, in the midrange, is pretty incredible.
