Best Rum Bar

Joe Squared

133 W. North Ave., (410) 545-0444,

More than sodomy and the lash, rum is much maligned. Diluted to almost tastelessness, rum is almost never taken straight. But it should be. Known mostly for its pizza and wings (“Best Wings” 2012), Joe Squared is also known to a small group of rum fans for its extensive selection of fermented cane-sugar goodness. Topping out at about 50 bottles, Joe Squared sports rum choices from pretty much every Caribbean island save Cuba, from where importing is still banned. The rarest of the lot is Plantation XO from Barbados, which is NOT to be mixed. Barcardi is to rum what Boh is to craft beer. Next time, forgo the Coke and get a nice rum on the rocks. You won’t be disappointed.
