how to use up Appleton 12 yr old rum?

I got my hands on a 12 year old Appleton a month ago or so and finally cracked it... I was a little unimpressed and found it too flat and rough to drink as is. The problem is that I am not a big cocktail fan, I like my martinis the Churchill way (the vermouth bottle just brushes past the martini glass), and don't even look at other cocktails (perhaps a mojito on a summer day, or if you force me a margarita). Is there a way for me to use this rum other than using it as a fuel for flambee? Or in other words, what are your purist cocktail recipes for this type of spirit? Nothing too sweet, and something that respects the roots of the spirit as much as possible. Merci!
