Release the Kraken - Rum Drinkers

Recommended Posts

Now, I'm not ashamed to admit that my preferred tipple is a dark rum. I like the non-spiced versions but am not afraid to give them a go in the spirit of trying something new.

 

The kids clubbed together and got me some Kraken for Christmas and I have to say, that for a spiced rum it's absolutely cracking!

 

Any other rum drinkers care to recommend their favourites?

 

There seems to be a bit of a fad around them as a few "rum clubs" and restaurants are springing up, including one in Donny near me.

I'm a huge rum fan. For the holy grail Google Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. I get it from a place called Drinkfinder dot co dot UK. It's the best rum in the world in my opinion. A sipper not a mixer.

 

Other favourites are Pussers Blue (red is good too), Pampero Aniversario, El Dorado 12 or 15 years old.

 

Best mixing rum for me is Mount Gay. Best budget sipper I think probably Lamb's.

 

Oh god there are so many. I could talk about this all day.

I got some for Christmas.

Better than Kraken but not miles ahead IMO, I don't think it is worth the extra £10+.

Just seen this thread.

 

I do love my Rum too! Sailor Jerry or Morgan's Spiced if I'm out with my mates. I also like Havana Club 7.

 

Another thumbs up for Kraken.

 

It's was my birthday last week, and whilst doing my weekly shop in Morrisons a paper wrapped bottle caught my eye. Rumbullion - made by Ableforth... it's a spiced rum. Quick look up on Rumratings.com gave some good reviews and a recommendation to drink neat.

 

Now, I must say there's not many rums I have enjoyed neat, but this on is really nice and I enjoyed every drop! £33 for 70cl @ 42.6%

 

 

I have a bottle of Mount Gay, too. But It's just OK.
