not so sweet/non fruity dark rum cocktails?

I am a neat scotch and dry martini (with bitters) gal, and the fruitiest I can go is a mojito. With that established, I have a bottle of Appleton Estate 12 yr that I carried all the way from Jamaica. And it is just sitting there. I thought I can just sip it, but it is just too abrasive (and yet cloying) to drink by itself. I think I just am not a rum person considering that I can sip scotch, tequila, mezcal and gin by themselves. What can I do to salvage this bottle?

I really really really hate to mix it with OJ. I tried and didn't like it. Other citrus (lime/lemon) are fine but sweet drinks make me gag. If nothing works, please direct me to home cooking board, where I can flambe my butt off. Merci!
