There's much more to dark rum than meets the eye (or the mouth and nose)! Good dark rums have as much flavour and complexity as good whiskey, and can be enjoyed just as much. Here are some great dark rum brands from different parts of the world that you should try if you have the chance.
During our trip to the Seychelles in 2011-2012, we discovered an incredible spiced dark rum made by the local Takamaka Bay distillery. When we got home, I was inspired to experiment with infusing some of the regular contents of our bar cabinet with some new flavours. Here, then, are four easy infusions that you can use to spice up your own bar.
