    Looking to make the switch from beer to spirits this upcoming trip but don't know what rums are available.

    I know the nicer the joint, the better the rum but does anyone have any specifics on any particular names I could ask for. For example mid tier hotel (MGM) would I be able to get ElDorado, Zacapa, Flor de Cana?

    Stuff like Cruzan, Captain and Bacardi will be available everywhere and easy to get comped. I'm not familiar with the brands you mention but if they cost around the same as the ones I mention you're probably good.

    Hard to find a good rum selection like that.

    I had trouble finding any dark rum that wasn't spiced. Even Bacardi gold wasn't available.

    Cosmo regularly carries Zaya and Zacapa, occasionally something like El Dorado, everywhere else is a no go. Very disappointing to me as well

    I'm a Dark and Stormy fan too. Had a good one or two at Cosmo. Don't know the brand of rum.

    Yes, I can get the Goslings Ginger Beer at my local grocery store. Tried the Goya ginger beer, it is almost undrinkable. Stoli offers a ginger beer for Moscow Mules. It's a sunny day and I am almost done yard work, this will be my reward.

    You will not find any of these.
    I found Appelton Estate and another dark rum at the high limit lounge in Aria.
    You will not find any of the rums you mentioned available on the casino floor or in any lounges or clubs.
    Bacardi Silver and Captain are standard everywhere.
