I'm excited for this quest! And I think I may have it. Zaya, 12 year old, Gran Reserva. $40 at BevMo. This shit is good - incredibly complex. I mean, it has the usual toffee and vanilla of a good aged rum going on, but there's this incredble background of orange and licorice that is quite subtle but underlies the flavor in your mouth. And then you swallow, and experience one of the most delightful long lingering finishes of anything that I've had in a while, where the flavor goes from full bore vanilla and oak and mellows out into a rich caramel and butterscotch. Damn fine on its own. Makes desert that much better. I am very very very pleased.

No, I'm in Santa Rosa. Still, I've seen it at multiple BevMo's. Try your local one.
