A really nice tipple. Got this last year from my mrs and it's just run out.

I've had the same feeling about this stuff for a while and this was a price I was happy with. Figured some other connoisseurs might feel the same.
I hope this doesn’t sound sacrilegious but I want to make some rum and raisin fudge, would anyone who knows about rum recommend this? I made some last week using Mount Gay Black Barrel as I went by reviews in The Independent, but the result was not as ‘rummy’ in taste having bourbon overtones nor as strong as I’d expected, even when I used 100mls in a kg batch. I’m hoping that using a half decent rum will give a better result than any old dark rum, much like a decent wine would elevate cooking. Any advice is much appreciated.

Give Appleton Estate 12 Year Old Rare Blend a try
Excellent rum
My favorite spiced rum.
I need help.
I think Amazon have turned me into an alcoholic!
always wanted to try this, might give it a whirl at this price
It's a beautiful spiced rum in a very pretty bottle. Breaking the wax seal and hearing that first 'pop' of the cork top is very satisfying! Great neat, or with coke - I had some for Christmas a couple of years ago and it's now my go-to when I want to treat myself.
Edit.

I wouldn't recommend using this in cooking at all. Not because it isn't very good- it is, but because it is not only a spiced rather than a dark rum, but it also has a very strong and very particular taste to it. This has a very strong taste of orange peel and cloves in particular and unless that is specifically what you are going for then I suspect the flavour would be overwhelming in fudge etc.

That is not to discourage anyone from trying this as, if you like it, you will really like it. In my opinion it is fantastic stuff, but I can also see why it might be an aquired taste. I'm loathe to recommend such great sipping rums in cooking as I do think it's a waste, but if you must then I would strongly recommend Diplomatica reserva exclusiva, which is the best I have had with respect to it's price (around £35). El Dorado 15 year pips it but thats about £50 a bottle.

Kind amazon delivery dude made a second pass tonight to deliver after I missed them earlier. Just popped the bottle and wow! Like I’d hoped dark matter would be. I don’t think this will last long beyond the festive period. Slainte!
