Rhum Barbancourt Tasting a Huge Success at the Rum Bar Key West

     Thursday's Rhum Barbancourt tasting at the Rum Bar Key West brought a good number of people to try one of the special cocktails that were developed specifically for the event.    The tasting featured the Rhum Barbancourt Three Star and the Rhum Barbancourt Pango in cocktails that were developed to bring out the flavors of these great rhums.
