Aged rum has a lot of flavor complexity, making it a worthy substitute for whiskey in one of the most classic cocktail recipes; the Old Fashioned. Look for a rum with 12 plus years of aging to ensure a mature flavor that won't disappoint.
Many claim to be the creators of this young-at-heart staple (all with slightly differing ingredient lists), but this version is the real deal. And while the name of this classic cocktail is misleading, very few actually liken the taste to a real iced tea. One thing we know for sure is that this cocktail has certainly made a name for itself outside of Long Island.
