    Re: Best sipping rum to start with?

    Around here the regular price is the same as Bacardi 8 and El Dorado 12 which is to say around $34.95, though I have found them on sale for less, and no, I've already cleaned out the sale stock.

    Thanks for all the replies! I ended up just going with the Plantation Barbados but will certainly reference this list the next time I shop for rum. This will only be the second or third time I've had an actual sipping rum, so I'm eager to crack open the bottle.

    Flor de Cana 12 year tastes like bourbon to me at first, only with a sweet, mild finish.

    Best sipping rum to start with?

    Just picked up my first premium bottle of rum. A 21 year el dorado. So easy to drink and I could nose it for days. Wish it was higher than 80 proof though.
