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. Fast forward to today and rum is enjoying a renaissance, most notably as a sipping spirit. Sure, you can still have it blended into a refeshing piña colada sipped poolside or mixed in a mojito to keep limber while dancing the night away, but rum has finally reached a level of refinement that stands on its own. 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.
