Default Choosing a premium priced rum...

I have slowly been building a modest rum collection, and I am enjoying the discover of so many great and unique rums. I am still a little shy about dropping the money for the more premium priced bottles, particularly knowing that on some brands the price has been jacked far beyond what can be blamed on high liquor taxes.
That being said, I was recently given a liquor store gift card, and I have decided to use that to subsidize one of the high end bottles that I have been wanting to try. The problem is, which one? There seem to be a few more to choose from for the Christmas season. Here is whats available in the upper range:

Appleton Master Blenders Legacy cdn$88
Goslings Family Reserve Old $98
Barbancourt 15yo Estate Reserve $75
Santa Theresa Antiguo de Solera $74

My first instinct is to snap up a bottle of the Appleton because I know it is rare, and I know I like Appleton products.

What are your thoughts on the quality and price of these rums?
