Try Kraken. Only like $20 a bottle. I found it to be a nice sipping rum.

dude, to get much more smooth you'll have to spend $40 or $50, and you'll not want to ruin something that smooth by mixing it.

I tried Sailor Jerry and didn't like it as much as I like Captain Morgan's Spiced.

I don't know any rum that you can drink straight. It really tastes so awful (for me) without a chaser. Anyway, there are cheap chaser out their in grocery stores, you might want to try it.

When I drink Kraken I drink it neat, sometimes with cube of ice or two. I rarely ever mix drinks though.

I like sailor Jerry with a couple cubes and a splash of dr pepper. I drink it straight sometimes though.

However I rarely drink anything besides beer, unless it's a special occasion or pussy is involved. But Jerry is my go to guy for liquor. I catch a lot of shit here because I don't like bourbon. I live in the Bourbon Capitol of the world and people seem t think you're not a man unless you drink it.

When it comes to liquor I drink whatever it is neat; bourbon, scotch, gin, cognac, rum, etc..... If I can't drink it neat, then I don't drink it.

Don't like bourbon? To each their own. Is it the bite that puts you off? Do you feel the same when it comes to, say, well aged scotch?

Bundaberg Rum. If you can find it, has a polar bear label. It's australian, my fav spirit.

Sailor Jerry tastes good straight. It's a spiced rum with a bit of vanilla, cinnamon, caramel taste to it. Not really sweet, but tasty!
