    X2 for Plantation XO, just great
    Zacapa XO is great too, but that is a little over 100Ä

    I'm not a big rum drinker..... but I do like my mojitos and Cuba libres..... saying that, I've always got a couple of bottles in my drinks cabinet! I'd recommend:
    havana club anejo especial (Tesco normally have it on offer for around £16)
    havana club 7 yr old (again, my Tesco does it for £22)
    Appleton estate (because it's lovely and decently priced at around £20+ a bottle)
    diplomaticos (because it's so well liked around here on this forum and pairs up perfectly with cigars, lovely to sip neat over ice)
    Ron zacapa solero 23 (pricey at about £60 a bottle, but so worth it.....again, lovely to sip neat over ice)

    If you start to get a taste for aged rum then I highly recommend El Dorado and Kirk and Sweeney. Pussers is also a good choice with a more robust taste. Rum is now my prefered tipple to enjoy a good cigar with.

    There so many good ones bur there's an awful load of horrid stuff too. Usually need to spend over £30 a bottle for the nice sipping rums.
