Default Technically not in D.C. but...

I'd recommend checking out Piratz Tavern in downtown Silver Spring. The servers all seem to have a healthy appreciation of rum, and I know they stock the following: El Dorado 15yr, Barbancourt 8yr and 15yr, Appleton 12yr, and I'm sure they have several other decent rums.
The atmosphere is a little cheesy, and the food is a little bit pricey, but the rum is good and the drink prices at least somewhat reasonable for the top shelf rum. For food check out the Steak on a Stone (you cook it yourself on a hot piece of granite), the prego no pao sandwich, or the fries. For drinks I would absolutely recommend trying the top shelf grog (which is a mix of bacardi superior, myer's dark rum, tortuga gold rum, falernum, and triple sec), or if you're feeling brave there is the cannonball shot (169 proof rum and 100 proof cinnamon schnapps). Check the calender on the site as they always have something different going on.
