While enjoying tiki cocktails with friends, you may find that your rum stock is running low. But do not worry, Sendgifts is here to help! We have compiled a list of the best budget rums for mixing and sipping. Here are some of our favorite high quality rums that will keep the party going no matter what your budget is.
Captain Morgan Private Stock Rum
The Captain Morgan Private Stock rum is produced from molasses and aged for over two years in ex-bourbon barrels before blending with spices. Founded in 1945, Captain Morgan is named after a famous pirate and eventual governor of Jamaica. It was originally distilled by Seralles in Puerto Rico, but now it is distilled on St Croix. Captain Morgan Private Stock is the ideal rum for fans of the original spiced rum by the American Virgin Islands brand. Initially, the rum is aged for two years in oak barrels before being aromatized with fine spices, such as vanilla.
Private Stock Rum is a mellow, smooth, and deliciously spiced rum that is great for people who have once turned their back on spiced rum. You can drink it on the rocks or with rum and coke for some added sweetness.
Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum
Small-batch, handcrafted, and balanced with bold spicy flavors, Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum is made from rums that undergo both pot and column distillation. The unique blend delivers a bold and balanced flavor. There is a tempered sweetness to this rum that brings notes of oak barreling across the palate, making it both suitable for sipping and mixing. It’s complex enough to enjoy on the rocks and smooth enough to use in a Dark and Stormy cocktail without burning a hole in your pocket.
A luxurious amber nectar revealing copious amounts of oak, vanilla, toffee leather. A true connoisseur’s delight.
Flor De Cana Grand Reserve Rum
Known as the “Sugarcane Flower” in Spanish, Flor De Cana Grand Reserve Rum is one of the few mass-produced rums from Nicaragua. With just a hint of sweetness, this rum isn’t for those seeking a sweet and syrupy finish. Flor de Cana Grand Reserve is solidly crafted, revealing flavors of dark roasted coffee and cocoa.
It’s a dark golden rum from one of Central America’s most famous producers, Flor de Cana from Nicaragua. Delicious, and one of the best budget rums around. Aromas of toasted coconut, vanilla, and fig are joined by flavors of honey and dark chocolate. Try this with soda or mixed with sparkling water. Tasting notes includes the flavors of butterscotch, brown sugar, almond butter, dried figs, and a red apple.
Diplomatico Planas Rum
According to Venezuelan law, rum cannot be bottled until it is at least two years old. In this case, however, some of the rums are aged in ex-bourbon barrels for up to six years. As a result, the blend is charcoal filtered up to six times, removing all colors and creating a very refined, texturally-rich white rum, perfect for serving on the rocks as well as, of course, in your classic Mojitos and Daiquiris.
Planas replaces Diplomatico’s Blanco Reserva. This whiskey is aged for six years, just like its predecessor, but the strength has been increased to 47%. Rich and chewy, this rum has notes of cappuccino and a nutty finish.
Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum
Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum is one of the cleanest rums in the industry with its low levels of fusel oils, a by-product of the distillation process which, if not removed, can taint the smell and taste of the spirit. Its quality is also linked to the aging process, with most Cruzan rum varieties being aged a minimum of 14 months and up to 12 years.
The aroma is intoxicating, with notes of vanilla, sweet caramel, and dried spices. There are complex layers of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and toasted wood notes in Cruzan 9’s initial taste.
It has a bold, smooth taste and a rich amber color. There are nine spices in the blend including vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, mace, allspice, pepper, and juniper berries. The taste is complex and includes notes of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and warm spices. The finish is intense and slightly dry. There is a rich blend of vanilla, caramel, and dried spices on the nose.
Bacardi Superior Rum
With a little spice and pepper, the nose is light and fresh. A medium-bodied wine with hints of tropical fruit, dark brown sugar, and winter spices on the palate. It has a smooth vanilla spice finish.
