Mai Tai

Just to be clear for other visitors to this page, the two-rum solution is about choosing two disparate rums – each providing different flavors. One (IMHO) should be a light or white rum that should have a very serious 'rum-ness' to it. It won't likely be (seriously) aged or anything and should be forward with the vegetal rum flavors of the cane/molasses. The second should be a darker rum that will have richer flavors due to the likelihood that it was aged (oak barrels, etc.). I wouldn't use your best sipping rum in a Mai Tai (but hey, it's your rum!), but there are some nice, aged, rums from, basically, every nation that makes rum. Experiment!
