Top Shelf Rum Every Man Should Know

Nothing says “Man” more than a good ol’ glass of rum on the rocks. But most of us don’t appreciate this fine beverage due to the fact that we’re so accostomed to drowning it in coca-cola as opposed to savoring the taste. we have no knowledge of what is quality Rum and what is sub par.

Having a vast knowledge of spirits is an ideal attribute of a Millennium Male, not to say that one must be a drunkard in order to become a Millennium Male, we’re just saying that it doesn’t hurt to know what your drinking.

Below are some of our favorites here at Millennium Male:

 

Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 year old Solera Rum

The Ron Zacapa is produced from a blend of vintage rums with up to 23 years of barrel age, Ron Zacapa Centenario represents the pride of Guatemalan rums, the pride of closely guarded recipes known only to skilled master blenders, and the pride of a government that strictly mandates the aging process. Rich chestnut color. A Christmas spice and caramel fudge nose. This full-bodied rum has rich brown spice, vanilla and subtle toffeed flavors envelope the palate with sugar caney sweetness. Has a super smooth and lengthy finish. A stylish and very hedonistic aged rum. Guatemalan Rum must be made of “cane honey,” which is essentially cane juice conscentrate. They do take care to prevent carmelization, which would create a molasses (www.klwines.com)

 

Appleton Estate VX

 

Dark gold, burnished copper rum distilled from fermented molasses. Aged in used Jack Daniels whisky barrels. The flagship of the Appleton Estate. This blend of 15 select aged rums is well balanced and one of the most under rated rums from Jamaica.
The rich aroma is accented with orange citrus, brown sugar-molasses, cinnamon and vanilla leading to a medium body of honey, dried apricot, dried orange and nut flavors.  The slightly smoky finish is long, subtle and complex. You can drink this rum on the rocks or with a splash of ginger ale. One of the best kept secrets from Jamaica.

 

Flor de Caña Centenario XII Year

Flor De Caña (spanish for “sugarcane flower) is renowned as one of the best rums in Latin America, having won more than 100 international awards since 2000 and has been the most award-winning rum brand during this period. It has captured gold, silver, and bronze medals and has received high recommendations from wine and liquor enthusiasts. (wikipedia)

 

Agnostura 1919 x 1824

 

 

Angostura 1824
This rum is the result of an intricate dance of doing things by hand. After 12 years of aging in used bourbon casks, a number of rums are hand-picked by Angostura’s master blender, hand-blended and then re-casked (by hand). After some time, when the blender is satisfied that the rums have properly married in the barrel, the rum is then hand-bottled into beautiful bottles, corked, and sealed with wax.

 

Angostura 1919
This rum is a blend of rums aged at least 8 years. It’s a medium gold color, with thin dripping legs, and smells fantastic. Sweet molasses and creamy butter come to mind, or maybe caramel rather than butter. Hints of vanilla come through. The flavor is a little smoky, rich, and creamy with hints of toasted nuts. It’s not as sweet as the smell. The finish is quite mild but a bit long, with a tiny hint of spiciness and just a little burn.

  1. Being a lover of rum, I’m always happy to see people express an interest in this particular spirit. That said, I think there are some big omissions from this list and I wouldn’t necessarily say the best rums should be chilled. Straight is my personal method of choice and for the best rums, it’s worth it!

    Here are a couple rums you should look into adding to your list:
    Eldorado 15 or if you’re lucky (and have the cash) Eldorado 25.
    • Have you tried Rhum Agricole? It’s the only recognized means of producing rum according to the French. Start with some of the best and try Rhum J.M. Vieux Millesime 1997.
    • You can also try something a little thicker with Gosling’s Family Reserve Old Rum
    • And then there’s my biased favorite: Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum. Forget all their syrupy sweet flavors and taste what rum from St. Croix really tastest like!
