I'm not a Bacerlo fan, but the Barcelo Anejo was pretty nice.

Hmm... You'll have to be more specific on what you mean. Anejo, I believe, translates to 'old' in english. What I'm guessig you probably mean though is what lightly aged spanish style rum is our favorite... yes?

Haven't had many, but here's my list of favorites:
1) Brugal Extra Viejo
2) Havana Club 7
3) Havana Club Anejo Reserva
4) Brugal Anejo

More specifically it means "aged". However, that's pretty much every rum out there!

Maybe it's a matter of perception, but I consider "anejo" rums aged between 3 and 5 years. If aged more than 5 years I consider them extra old. So that way HC7 and Brugal Extra Viejo are not anejo for me.

Usually anejo rums can be sipped, well at least the best of them, but I used them more as mixers.

For that age range, the best one I got was English Harbour 5 years old. ED 5 is not to forget as well.

For me el dorado and English harbor would not fall in the 'anejo' category. They need to be of Spanish style. As mentionned above, it depends on perception.
