Tasting Rum From Around the World with The Rum Howler

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 17, 2013

I have been invited by the great guys (and gals) at UNWINED (Fine Wine, Spirits and Ales) in St. Albert to be the guest host for a Rum Event on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 appropriately named:

Tasting Rum Around the World with The Rum Howler

Presented By Chip Dykstra of The Rum Howler Blog

I think (although I admit I am biased because I selected the rums) that the line-up we will be tasting is solid as it represents a good cross-section of geographical styles of rum production. You can experience the wonderful flavour and diversity of rums from Central and South America, the Caribbean Islands, and as an added bonus a very unique rum from the Sub Continent of India. Capping the evening off will be the presentation and tasting of a very special rum 25-year-old spirit from Panama, the Panamonte Reserva XXV.

Here is the list of Rums I will be presenting:

Flor de Caña Centenario 12 Year Old  (Nicaragua)
Appleton Estate Extra Old 12 Year Old  (Jamaica)
Ron Millonario Solera 15 Reserva Especial  (Peru)
Old Monk Very Old Vatted XXX 7 Year Old   (India)
Panamonte Reserva XXV – 25 Year Old Rum  (From Panama)
