Rhum Ron Rum – 3

August 20, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Title for The Whisky: The Whisky

“Rum: It’s The Spirit of The World: Rum and its close cousins (aguardiente de caña, arrack, cachaça, charanda, and seco) is produced in more than 150 countries. What is rum? Rum is a spirit that’s distilled either from fermented molasses (or other by-products from sugar refining making) or freshly-pressed sugar cane juice. Because of its base material, molasses based rums generally have a sweet note and flavors of molasses, banana and tropical fruit (their complexity is ramped up by aging them in barrels), while those made with sugar cane juice (like rhum agricole and Cachaça) have pronounced grassy and vegetal notes. Rum is made in sugar cane producing countries. As Sugar cane and even refined sugar has a limited shelf life, sugar plantation owners found it profitable to turn their surplus sugar into rum which took up much less space and avoided the shelf life issue.

We’ll taste 6 rums of 4 different styles from 5 countries: Barbados, Cuba, Fiji, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela. As it’s a delightful flight and lots of good bites, do please join us and bring a friend as “good whisky is made great when shared among friends.”
