A Taste of the Tropics
Warm weather calls for rum-based mai tais, mojitos, daiquiris, and other refreshing summer drinks. But store shelves are crowded, and plenty of rums good enough for sipping neat or on the rocks cost $60 or more. Cheapism has found 18 of the best bottles available under $35, starting with recent and past winners of the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, which is respected for its tasting methodology and well-known judges. Those scores were cross-referenced with online reviews and, of course, prices. The final list includes white rums as well as darker rums that have been aged longer.
Prices and availability are subject to change.
