Ten best rums

1. 10 Cane
Created by Hennessy master blender Jean Pineau, this bright rum is a riot of tropical flavours and spicy aromas. Think vanilla ice cream with just a hint of spice in the finish.
Price: £33.00, fortnumandmason.com
2. Diplomatico
Awarded a gold medal at the New Orleans rum-tasting competition when it was first released in 2007, this 12-year-old molasses-based brew is exceptionally dark and has a rich treacly flavour.
Price: £46.00, harveynichols.com
10. Mount Gay 1703
Mount Gay's 1703 uses only sugar from its famed reserve in Barbados and is aged for 30 years to ensure you get all the flavour you'd expect from a spirit costing more than £100. Pricey, but tasty.
Price: £102.07, drinksdirect.co.uk

You don’t have to be a sailor to enjoy this spicy spirit – the tropical flavours range from light and sweet to dark, rich and treacly with a hint of the exotic.
