A handsomely-presented gift set with two glasses accompanying a bottle of Venezuela's greatest export (apart from all those Miss Worlds) - the equally stunning and lipsmackingly tasty Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.
Ron Cubaney was a brand that was originally produced in Cuba, however the family are now in exile in the Dominican Republic. Aged in the traditional Cuban method in a solera system using both American bourbon and French wine casks, this is rich and complex.
A truly superb dark golden rum made in Bermuda by Gosling's, who are of course much more famous for their Black Seal rum of Dark 'N' Stormy fame. To overlook this complex sipper would be a mistake, however - we think it's a hidden gem.
Originally aged in ex-cognac casks, this 2002 vintage rum from the Reunion Island's Savanna distillery has been finished for six months in sherry casks for extra smoothness and a layer of fruity sweetness.
Named after the Spanish term for the sugar cane harvest, Zafra Master Reserve is a premium Panamanian rum matured for at least 21 years in casks that formerly held bourbon. Blended by a former maestro ronero for Havana Club, Zafra is a pleasingly rich but interestingly dry rum with a perfectly silky mouthfeel and superb balance. Marvellous stuff.
Clarke's Court #37 Blend was released in 2010 to coincide with the 37th anniversary of the island's independence from the British Empire. Coincidentally, the buildings that house Clarke's Court distillery first produced rum back in 1937. This is aged for 8 years in oak before bottling.
Not to be confused with Zacapa Centenario, this Fundacion 20yo is made by Centenario Internacional, who hail from Costa Rica. Sweet and easy-sipping, this is a rum of complexity and depth, and is packaged in a rather fancy leather jacket.
Papa's Pilar 24 uses rums made in Florida, Central America and the Caribbean. These are aged in a solera system using both bourbon barrels and port casks, before a final finishing period in Spanish sherry casks. Sounds awesome.
A very high-strength overproof pot-distilled molasses rum from Mauritius, Tilambic is aged for up to seven years. The 151 represents the strength in US proof, which means that this rum is 75.5% abv and as such should be used extremely carefully and not ingested neat.
Another top-quality Trinidad rum - superb. Double distilled in small copper potstills before 12 years of maturation in oak barriques - a rum of exceptional depth and profundity. Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2008 International Rum Festival.
