D - I'd have to argue with you about the Barrel Proof being better than Zacapa 23.
Personally, I can't refer to many, but for one I like the Ron Varadero 3 a lot better than the HCA3. Then again, it's an amber rum, but they cost the same and share enough commonalities. I just like it better. Some other Cuban rum I can't comment on: Legendario, Mulata etc. At least eh Legendarios seem to review decently at the rum howler blog.
You've just been to Cuba, so maybe you can prove me wrong but I think that the low-end HCs tend to not be the best value. Like I said, I can't comment on their top shelf stuff.
