Following on from previous Rum tastings (Foursquare Rum in 2017 and Botran / Pusser’s Rum in 2016), this year we have a slightly eclectic selection of rums and styles from around the world. We will be starting with a couple of Spiced Rums (you can’t ignore their importance these days), moving on to Botrans superior white rum and finishing up with various aged rum styles. We will be trying some familiar rums (Botran and Pusser’s) and some new rums from Bayou Rums of Louisiana, USA and Canaoak, a Nicaraguan / Mauritian blended rum.
The Rum Tasting will be hosted by Ian Robinson and Peter Thornton from Cellar Trends. Cellar Trends are the UK agents for the rums will be tasting and both Peter and Ian are very knowledgeable about the various rums we will be tasting – so have your questions ready!
