The local liquor store has quite a selection of rums. Almost all of them are in the same price range with Captain Morgan, which gives me pause. Also the rise of the Dark and Stormy has given a lot of shelf space to dark rums which is of no use to me.
As I’ve mentioned, I prefer a very smooth rum, my favorite (though I’ve tried relatively few) being Westerhall Plantation, which is deucedly hard to find. Most recently I reached up to the top shelf and bought 10 Cane Rum, which promised to be smooth. But isn’t particularly.
So help me out here. What’s a good, smooth, mild rum that I stand a fair chance of finding in the average liquor store?
