Default New to the forum and looking for recommendations

Hi all,

I am new to the forum and am lookin for recommendations on good sipping rums. Until now I have only experienced cheaper rums in mixed drinks as that is typically what is available. I want to experience more what is out there. All advice and recommendations are welcome.

Welcome Steve!

Do you know which rums are widely in Singapore? I've been there a few times but I don't really remember seeing anything of note in the bars. Maybe you have a good retailer you can call upon?

Default Rum Suggestions

It depends on your tastes. You can't go wrong with Zacapa 23, which is a bit sweet and very smooth. If you like whiskey, you may like Mount Gay Extra Old or Cruzan Single Barrel. There are others on this site much more knowledgeable than me who can give you additional suggestions.
