    We love Barbancourt as well; in fact, the brand's 15-Year-Old was in our 2009 Holiday Gift Guide: http://liquor.com/articles/holiday-gift-guide-rum/. But try one of Julie Reiner's picks. You'll no doubt find a new favorite.

    Pyrat XO should be on this list ! Excellent Rum and very "sip-able". Too bad Petron bought the company, now its being over exposed & over marketed. I see it everywhere now. There was a time the only way to get a bottle was to have it shipped to you or fly down to St. Martin for vacation and pick one up.

    Love the list, but one word of caution. If you're thinking of buying a white rhum agricole for someone, make sure they like agricole first. I know plenty of folks that LOVE rum with a capital "L" but absolutely detest rhum agricole. 'Ti Punch ce n'est pas pour tout le monde. There is after all, no accounting for taste, so my advice is to play it safe with the El Dorado 15 -- a legitimate crowd pleaser. Aloha
