I have read where some really like to pair rum when smoking cigars. Just wondering if any of you guys drink it and if so what kind do you prefer.

    Agree with @Usaf06 and I would add Kirk and Sweeney

    El Dorado 12 year, or Captain Morgan 1671 is good for the price.

    It'll come to you in the morning.  :smile:

    I like some of the spiced Rums too.

    Have you had the 23 year Kirk and Sweeney? Was wondering if it was worth the extra $$.

    There are so many good rums. Westerhall Plantation is good. Peligroso Anejo is good. When it comes to cigar mouthwash, rum works.

    The best rum I've seen but never tasted was this. I can't spend that much on rum.

    Second the Ron Zacapa, I used to drink the Pusser's, because it was $28 bottle, then the price literally doubled to $56.  Don't drink it anymore.  I also really like the George Bowman, but the wallet usually confines me to Capt. Morgan, any of them, Private Stock being best, or the Sherry Oak Finish when I've got a sweet tooth.

    Hmm, there are others, too many, I just like Rum, especially with cigars.

    $14 for 1.75 ML. Made by Captain Morgan, but it tastes better than everything else they make.

    Zaya is the best I've had but I may hit up Johnny-o just to taste.

    After going to Jamaica, I love the Appletons 12 year. Nice and smooth. I also enjoyed the Bacardi Oakheart. Has some similarities to bourbon and that's my drink of choice.
