Who loves Venezuelan rum?


Now Nicaraguan rum..... that is something worthwhile!

One of my favorite rums is Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva... best 40 bucks you’ll ever spend.

Agreed, lovely drink. Possibly a touch sweet, but I'm never without a bottle.

Give me my homemade Pitorro...not smooth, but coming in over 100 proof.

Great for Coquito during the Holidays.. or sitting on my deck watching the sunset in Rincón PR, with some Coca Cola and crushed ice.

Much love for Don Q gran añejo too, but I really like going through the whole 'Moonshine' process.

Will definitely try some of the recommended Venezulean 'Ron' mentioned here though.

te prometo.

I like Pampero Añejo VZ rum, and use it for making coquito during the holidays. I'm running low on it these days.


A pretty good alternative is Brugal Añejo from the DR.

There's no boycott of Citgo. I doubt if the rum company is more than a tiny fraction of their size. Besides, the rum company's first duty is to its owners—it is a private company.
