Rum

Rum is enjoying a bit of a resurgence, perhaps not in the same way that gin is enjoying one, but it’s definitely a good time to be a rum drinker. With more options than ever before, and age statements that would make a Scotch whisky blush, and with prices that are exceptionally reasonable, yes, it’s a good time to like rum. This year, we saw a great mix of new and old examples, but it was a 15-year old rum from El Dorado that rose to the top spot. Me, I like to sip my rum neat or maybe on some rocks… Tom Firth
