Best Sipping Rums

Long overlooked by high society, rum has suffered a rough reputation over the years. Blame it on Blackbeard and his pirates and the Prohibition-era rum runners.

Each of the brands on GAYOT's list of Top 10 Rums can be enjoyed as a base for cocktails, but they're even better straight up or on the rocks.
