Default Favorite dark rum for mixing cocktails?

First post, w00t!

Curious to hear everyone's favorite dark rum for mixing cocktails. Yes yes, I realize you can use anything, I just want to hear your favs. I'm thinking something not too expensive, and something that's very dark and full-bodied.

I'm trying to recreate this killer recipe I had at the Rum Club in Portland, OR. But I can't find Mount Gay Black 100 at my locals. I think the key to this drink was that dark, smoky flavor.

Langston Hughes

2 oz. Mount Gay Black 100 rum
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 oz. grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. Demerara syrup
1/4 oz. maraschino liqueur
2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
Shake everything with ice and strain into a coupe glass.

...thanks all! Looking forward to being an active member in the rum community!

Dark with smokey flavor... Lemon Hart or one of the El Dorado's is your best bet for that flavor profile.

My favorite dark rum overall is Coruba Dark, very flavorful and very versatile.

Found out why I can no longer find Mount Gay Black 100 - my local says it's no longer in production. Says it's been replaced by Mount Gay Black Barrel. It's no longer overproof, and has a retail price.

Mt Gay Black 100 is (sadly) no longer in production.

I've been getting by with this blend.

300ml Mt Gay Amber
200ml El Dorado 5 year
100ml Lemon Hart 151

Cheers!
