In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, cloves, cinnamon, honey and lime juice to make the marinade; Whisk to blend together, and set aside.
Next, cut off the crown of leaves and the base of the pineapple. Standing the pineapple upright, use a large sharp knife to pare off the skin, cutting downward just below the surface of the pineapple in long, vertical strips. After this step, cut off any remaining small brown “eyes” on the fruit. Stand the peeled pineapple upright again, and cut it in half lengthwise. Place each pineapple half with the cut-side down, and cut it lengthwise into four long wedges; then slice away the core.
Place pineapple slices in the bowl with the marinade, and stir to coat pineapple.
Place slices on grill and cook about 3 to 4 minutes, basting once or twice with remaining marinade. Turn the fruit and move it to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the heat. Baste again with the marinade. Grill about 3 more minutes until the pineapple is tender and golden.
Take the pineapple from the grill, and place on a platter or individual plates. Brush with rum, if using, and sprinkle slices with the lime zest; Serve hot or warm.
