Top 100 Rums That Cost Less Than $100Number One



Number One on the List
     The Houston Chronicle has issued its top 100 rums list that cost less than $100.00.  I find the list very interesting, but I cant believe there are several rums like Ron Zacapa 23 Solera, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, Havana Club Seven Year Old and a few others that were not included.   It is great to have such a list available for us to view and a catalog to go to for ideas for the purchase of some good rums.

     Tired of drinking standard Captain Morgan, but don’t quite have the budget to splurge for the good stuff on the top shelf? Not to worry — when it comes to rum, there’s plenty of affordable middle ground.
UnderTheLabel used our Smart Rating system, which combines expert reviews and liquor competition results, to find the 100 best rums for under $100. We included the average price, Smart Rating and category (dark, spiced, cachaca, et al.) of each rum.
Every bottle on this list has a Smart Rating of at least 91, so if you’re craving a drink but can’t justify spending too much, there’s plenty of quality out there for the penny-pinching connoisseur.
