    If you can find it, Cockspur Rum from Barbados is the best rum under 30 bucks by far!

    Pretty sure it's "how much they offered in advertisement revenue... in order".

    Where's Westerhall? Have they broken the $30 barrier?

    If you want a high quality Rum made with grade A molasses check out Independent Rum by Independent Distilling in Decatur, Ga. It is natural rum that is double distilled and it is fantastic!

    Where is Rhum Barbancourt? Seriously?

    Hooray! Most options are all sugar-laden rums. Says a lot about the "best rums" out there.

    Kudos for getting at least a few decent ones on the list.

    Of course, El Dorado 12 *is* artificially sugared and colored.

    And curiously missing, Mezan XO, a lovely blend of four different distilleries in Jamaica. No chill filtering. No caramel coloring to approximate age. No sugar added. No glycerin. Can any of these rums say that?
