Default Rums we had in Calgary

Kirk and Sweeney 12 yo
Plantation Grenada
Plantation Barbados
Rum Nation Barbados 12 year anniversary
Rum Nation Caroni
Flor de Cana 25 yo
Rum Nation Demerara

Didn't like the RN Barbados or the Caroni.
I'd rather have my F de C 7 yo or my 18 yo than the 25 yo that we tasted. Which just goes to show that expense has no bearing on how much you like something.
I started out not liking the RN Demerara because of the earthy/woody/musty taste. Thought it had been in a mouldy aging barrel. But dammit, it grows on you (little play on words there...). And by the time I finished the sample, I'd actually have bought it. Its just that the price tag would have threatened my marriage.
So both the Plantations, the K&S, and the RN Demerara made it to my "I like it" list.
