I've tried only the clear kinds of rum that you typically see in mixed drinks and I'm not a fan. Spiced rum is a little better, but I still don't like it straight. I hear there's a few brands of rum that are aged, or somethin', and they're good for sipping as opposed to mixing. Do any of you have a recommendation for a good sipping rum?

Ditto. I've been to the BVI distillery. They brand it as the single-malt scotch of rums and given its unique flavor profile I can't disagree. It certainly isn't the standard rum profile of burning 3-day old alcohol mixed with some sugar.

Darkmage: Kracken is awesome for mixing. Lady at the local liqour store turned me onto it maybe 6 months ago? Dirt cheap here--they run sales on the 1.75 liter bottles for 21 bucks semi-regularly (every couple of months). And so much better at mixing than Bacardi or most of the Captain Morgan rums. I have had it straight when some friends and i were taste testing lower end rums and though it was the best of hte lot straight and mixed.
