Default What to try next?

Hello guys,

Last few days i've been roaming the internet to look for what rum to drink next. I'm not a real big drinker, but occiasionally I like to have a good rum. I tried a few brands in the past, and not al of them did suit me. During my roaming I stumbled upon the Rum Howleg blog (he is a member right?), which helped me a lot. But there is so much to try. So I want to start small shelf, 4 or 5 bottles.
I like a sweet rum, not to harsh and spicey, and with a gentle burn in the throath.

I made a shortlist, please advise or comment?

Plantation Guatamala gran Anejo
El Dorado 15 (or 12, which one?)
Diplomatico reserva exclusiva
Zacapa Centenario 23
Havana Club seleccion de maestros
Flor de Cana Centenario 12

I liked:
Plantation Barbados
Captain Morgan Private Stock

Ron Barcelo Imperial
Havana Club Anejo 7
Bacardi 8

I disliked
All other Bacardis
Different other Captain Morgans
Brugal Anejo
