2017 International Spirits Challenge Rum Winners

     The 2017 International Spirits Challenge is complete for this year and the winners in the Rum Category have been announced.  Some surprises, but for the most part the winners have shown their quality before and cream floated to the top again.

     The big winner this year is Richard Seale and the RL Seale & Company (Foursquare Distillery) of Barbados.  Six Gold Medals for his Doorly’s 12 Year, Foursquare 2004, Foursquare Criterion, Foursquare Triptych, R L Seale’s Finest and Foursquare Zinfadel Cask Blend, then add in the three Silver Medals for Doorly’s XO, Doorly’s 8 Year Old and Foursquare 2013, put him clearly on top of the heap.  If you throw on top of that “Rum Producer of the Year”, They are the absolute dominate distillery of 2017.



     Here are all of the “Rum Winner’s” for 2017.  Congratulations to all of the winners for 2017.
