I have a hierarchy of words that I want the users in my site to tag things with. I do not want them to create their own words

Should I create my hierarchy with termsets in termstore or should I go with keywords? But keywords dont allow me to create an hierarchy

What's a good option here?

Tags are associated with in built Keywords termset. You can create predefined tags but it won't be in hierarchical order.You can open managed metadata service , go to System-->Keywords. Add your pre defined terms. Also to restrict the user from adding new tags you can select Keywords termset and in General tab in right side set Submission Policy to Closed.
