2. Zacapa Centenario 23 (Guatemala)
Actually made from virgin cane honey instead of molasses and aged in a unique process called sistema solera that involves rotating barrels and blending rums from 6-23 years old, then storing them on the slopes of a volcano. Sacrificial maiden optional. Has won all kinds of awards and deservedly so. Probably the darkest rum on this list, but the solera process smooths out any harshness or bitterness.
