The 2010 Golden Rum Barrel Awards

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 26, 2010

About eight weeks ago UK Rum Ambassador Ian Burell sent me my nomination form for the Golden Rum Barrel Awards. These were to be the first World Wide Rum Awards based upon a judging by a panel of Rum Experts from at least three different continents and  many different Countries of the world.  I was invited to not only nominate rums I considered worthy, but also to judge in London at UK Rumfest!  Alas, that other world in which I dwell, (that one where I have a business to run and responsibilities to my family) prevented me from participating in London. But I did present my nominations to Ian, and I was very curious how the awards would turn out.
