White Rums

Whether you call them, clear, silver, white or simple 'see through' how do you drink them?

Default Best rum for a Daiquiri?

Alright fellow rum lovers, what rum is your favorite in a Daiquiri? Heck lets mention whites and anejo's as well. For me so far I've only used Don Q Cristal but am leaning towards trying Don Q Anejo in a mulata.

I like Neisson Blanc in a daiquiri but I'm spoiled. Although I don't disdain aged rum in a daiquiri, I think a good white rum works better. El Dorado 3 year old white is also very good. But like most drinks you have to use fresh lime juice and good cherry liqueur to make a good daiquiri.

Ya I've been making mine without the cherry liqueur just because I haven't found a good one yet. Alas, one more thing for my shopping list.

I like Flor de Cana 4yo white as well. I also like making Bacardis, er, Grenadine Daiquiris with it.

I'll vote for two - Flor de Caсa extra dry, and Barbancourt blanc. Two very different rums, two very different daiquiris - one dry and elegant, the next sweet with the scent of fresh cane.

I like just about any good rum in a daiquiri.

However, if I'm making one at home, more often than not I grab the El Dorado 3 Year Old. Also, after spending a few days in the DR drinking a lot of Brugal White, I found that I really like it in a daiquiri as well.

The ED3 though is still the fave.

Well the first daiquiri was good, I guess it's time for another.

Me too. Around here, it seems that there are a ton of dark rums to choose from, slightly fewer amber rums, and only a handful of light rums.

Last week I asked Martin Cate to make me a Daiquiri during the Jardiniere "Tiki Bar Night". It seemed best to leave the choice of rum to him and a wonderful El Dorado 15 Daiquiri was the result. Although it may not be a white rum, and hence inappropriate to this section, it certainly was delicious.

BTW he adjusted the mix after initial shaking amd before it was served (a touch more lime) and the result was perfectly balanced.
