Lend me a hand, /ck/.
I want some delicious rum (for sipping/tasting) and some clear tequilla (definitely for mixing). I don't know any good tequillas at all and I've only had Havana, Bacardi and Captain Morgan's when it comes to rum.
What should I get from here that's under 100 bucks?
I like to sip rum or tequila, maybe I can help. I don't read spanish well enough to use your website OP, so I'll just call out brands I like.
Generally with sipping liquors, the more you pay, the better you get up until a certain price point. In USD$ $20 for a bottle will get you drunk but have poor flavor, $35-50 is a finer liquor for sipping, and everything higher up is really nice but most people wont notice, especially if you're getting drunk for the night.
Zaya12 is decent for the price, a blend of aged rums. Appleton estate, mount gay, deadhead rum, and a couple others are decent. Pyrat is good. Plantation barbados was alright, 3 sheets was good but overpriced. Look for something aged at least 5 years, but for a reasonable price.
For tequila I usually go reposado, but Cazadores, Jimador, and a couple southern california tequilas are decent. Herradura is good. 1800 is probably what you should get if all of it will be mixed and you're serving it to people. If you want, a slightly higher grade would be Milagro. Basically if you're looking for something for mixing, you don't really want to spend more than about $20 a bottle.Avoid Jose Cuervo, its just not as good.
