The 2013 Rum Howler Awards – The Year in Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 27, 2013

RH-winner2013Rum continues to be a spirit on the rise. There was a time not long ago that when I stopped by a local store to buy a bottle of rum, I had really only two or three choices, and they were all named Bacardi. Now it is not uncommon for me to see up to twenty different rum brands even in the small liquor stores, and some of the large stores will have as many as 50 different brands to choose from. When I talk to the local merchants, they all tell a similar story, more and more people are asking for rum and some of them even come into the stores brandishing my reviews as ammunition.

My Rum Howler Awards are published each year. They represent my yearly proclamations regarding the best rums which I have tasted within that particular year. As is the case each year, all of my Awards are based upon side by side tastings within each category of spirit. I taste the spirit neat, and I also mix a few cocktails. Sometimes I have my friends help me. All rum samples which I receive to review on my website each year are automatically considered for the awards. I do my review, and then I set aside the remainder of the spirit for the end of the year judging. I also receive additional industry samples specifically for these awards.

My side by side tastings are completed, and it is time for me to reveal the recipients of my 2013 Rum Howler Awards for Excellence in the Production of Rum.

    Reblogged this on Rum Victoria and commented:
    Since my wife and I are really busy getting things ready for our new baby (4 weeks away!). I thought that since this is the season for some great rum gift and rum drinking, here is an amazing post from Chip aka The Rum Howler. It is his 2013 Rum Howler Awards. Many of these great rums are available in Canada and especially in Victoria, BC.

    Cheers to everybody to this holiday season, have a great safe holiday and as much as rum is a great spirit, please don’t drink and drive. Remember, next year there will be more great rums to try and you want to be around to sip and share them.

    Scott
