  • what is a good brand of rum?

    I'm not a drinker but I'd like to get some rum to try in some recipes and especially rum raisin ice cream. But I don't know what kind to get. I'd like just straight up no flavorings added rum.

    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

      I like Flor de Cana grand reserve. It sips really nicely, neat. It is not outrageously pricey either.

        If you are in Newfoundland, you might see if you can get your hands on a bottle of Screech. It might entail getting someone else's hands off the bottle first.

          I'm a huge fan of Ron Zacapa 23 year Solera Reserve. It's a blend of rums up to 23 years. It's from Guatemala and it's delicious. Don't waste it in recipes and stuff though. This is the "sippin' whisky" of rums.

            For ice cream, and to generally get a good deep rummy flavor in recipes...
            IMO your best bet would be a DARK rum such as Gosling's Black Seal.
            It's a black rum that is not spiced.
            It makes a beautiful Dark'n Stormy.

            The Flor de Cana GR is good... but I wouldn't buy that just to cook with!
            And no fabulous sippin' stuff for recipes either.
            (Also, I wouldn't use Capt Morgans for anything... except maybe pawning off on 'social friends' who like to 'drink' more than they like to really 'enjoy the drink'... to keep their paws off my good stuff.)

            That's my 2c.

                Well aside from the capt morgans all the other rums mentioned are not to be found within 1,000 miles of me. I jut need a regular brand of rum that is of better quality than capt morgans.

                      Ron Rio is alright for drink mixing and pretty cheap.
                      Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                          If you're looking for the sippin' whisky of rums, you should probably just go with sippin whisky. You may be a hillbilly, Rich and not even know it...

                          Seriously - I've never really got into rum, but think I'd like to give it a go sometime. I just hate the idea of ordering something like Captain Morgan, since the ads make it seem like a kid's drink.

                            If you can find Sailor Jerry, I love that rum. And it is more bang for your buck, as well.

                              Where spiced rums are concerned I like Kracken as well.. As does my husband.
                              Last time he was out and we stopped to get a bottle he got a 1.75liter!
                              And he is seriously not a drinker.
                              That bottle is going to last him forever. LOL

                              I think with the spice notes Kracken would make a beautiful Rum Raisin icecream...
                              OP wanted non-flavored though, and I included 'spiced' with 'flavored'... so I suggested the Goslings.
                              You should give it a try if you like the really dark rums.
