3. Ron Abuelo (Panama)
Rated as one of the best, a perfect fusion of Cuban technique and Panamanian drive (today the canal, tomorrow the world). If you have the chance go for the limited edition Centuria edition, produced in 2008 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Varela Hermanos sugar plantation–founded in 1908 by Spanish emigré Don José Varela. Goes for about $130.00 a bottle and cheap at the price.
