I have been reviewing rum for a number of years now - for ShortList best rum guide - and fallen in love with the spirit.
The way it changes depending on the country and climate it is made, the different variations of rum (white, golden, dark, navy, spiced, fruit...), how sugar cane is the base but what it distilled from this takes a lot of different forms.
Rum is a drink that is sometimes misclassified by colour - we all should really look at the provenance of the spirit to understand the type of rum we are getting but, forget all that: the best way to find out what rum you like is to taste the lot!
With the following discounts, hopefully there will be something on offer that will spark your own rum tasting adventure.
