Default Drinking rum like wine

I was wondering if anybody else was like me when it comes to drinking rum.
If I plan on drinking a couple of rums in an evening I usually start with a light rum first, such as a Cuban or Domincan and work up to heavy style rums like a Demerara, Jamaican or Navy. I find it hard to go back to a light rum if I have a heavy one first. This reminds me of going to wine tastings where they usually start with light whites and work up to heavy cabs. I also usually start with a mixed drink and save the sippers for later when the cooking, homework, feeding, bathing, etc. has finished and I can relax for a whilen and enjoy the rum.
Just wondering if this was normal behaviour or something else!!
