I was lucky enough to be invited to the rum exhibition last year. Here is a taste of what the Rum Renaissance was like last year for this rum bum. I met some great rum experts there, including Mike from I’m no rum expert, but he was nice enough to give me a little tour (tasting) of all the different rums, their taste characteristics, history of the brands and the people behind the rums. It was a great experience and I’m looking forward to a little rum fun on South Beach again this year. I will be there all day Saturday, April 30th if you want to say hi.

If you would like to experience the fun and learn about rums from all over the world, please visit the Rum Renaissance website for details. I believe you also get a special hotel rate at the Deauville Beach Resort.
