This is my first foray into a Rum for sipping. I may have not made the best choice, but it was a start. I am open and welcoming suggestions. This ended up being more of an aperitif than a sipper. Quite sweet with tastes I did not anticipate. The label on the bottle was very descriptive including nose & taste notes, which I agreed with. This rum was finished in cognac barrels in France. I tasted baked fruit with honey and a fairly strong compliment of onion & bacon fat. Yes, it was an odd taste experience, but in the end not entirely objectionable.

I'm like you - not really into rum. If you find it, give Zaya 12 Gran Reserva a shot. I really enjoyed it. Very "bourbonesque". It's $30'in Michigan, but I don't think you'll be disappointed.

At The Rum Project (link follows) Sue Sea and I have independently reviewed and scored over 120 rums. Although we simply loved the Barbados bottlings, the "Grand Reserve" was very disappointing. The review above calls it a "mixing rum", and sadly that it all too true. There are far better mixers for less money available.
