    First tried Appletons in Jamaica when I got married some 13 years ago they do some lovely flavoured rums.

    I have never tasted Appletons before as rum was not my drink off choice
    but I have tasted a few as I went to the Rum feast last year to see what
    was so nice about rum.
    this was the best rum I have every tasted so far.

    The Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva that Ranks mentions in the previous post is not badly priced, is popular with many and not impossible to find but I struggle with it. I find it so sugar heavy that after a couple of sips I can taste nothing else.

    In the U.S. you can get Zaya rum for around $25, often a little less. That is a great affordable rum that isn't as sugar heavy but still on the sweeter side. I recall it being hard to find in the UK but hunt some of that down for a regular drinker.

    Thanks for the greetings guys, it is true I have not been on here in forever. I am still living in San Francisco and smoking and drinking when I feel the urge.

    One of my favourites right there ! Have a couple of bottles stashed away. It is on the sweet side but I don't mind that. When I'm not in the mood for something so sweet I turn to an Appletons Estate 21yr or a St Nicholas Abbey 15yr both very different to the Diplomaticos but superb sipping rums.

    Hi RDBM
    I did have a bottle stashed away but it was found out by my mum and dad
    and they drank the hole bottle and told me that is was not all that.
    what can you say to that?

    I've still not got around to picking up a bottle of this yet, but it is the next Rum I will be trying.

    Not much Ranks I'm afraid, hope they didn't mix it with a well known cola ��
