Best Rum to Mix With Egg Nog

It's that time of year again, and I had my first rum & egg nog last night. My personal favorite for this is Capt Morgan Dark...I am really not a fan of the spiced rum

Does anyone have any other rum recommendations that do well with egg nog?

I like Bacardi amber(I think its called "gold" now, but it will always be "amber" to me). I tried it with Capt Morgan spiced rum and it was gross.

Whatever you do, just dont buy Lambs :cheesygri

Personally I would not use an expensive premium Rum at all. Why waste a good product by mixing it with dairy and eggs?

I highly recommend Appleton V/X for the egg nog. It has a slightly syrupy mouth feel and comes with all these wonderful molasses/caramel flavors. Highly recommended.

having aspent a small fortune on different rums and a significant amount of time on the east coast (the liquor stores in Ottawa have 8 foot sections of Rum, in the east its closer to half the store = way more selection)

I have to say you are already using the best rum: Captian Morgan Dark
Dont forget the nutmeg

appletons is for those who were told its the best rum, if you spend the time and money you will discover that Captian Morgans Dark is the best AND when your not mixing it with egg nog, mix it with Pepsi (as opposed to coke)

it is called Captian Morgans Tattoo in the U.S.

there is also a premium called Captian Morgans 1878 - its not as good, other premiums would be better.

I concur with the spiced rum, it adds a little extra

CM's Original Spiced Rum is good, but so is any other kind of dark rum.
