The Saturday Grand Tasting

   Saturday is filled with the public and a collection of some of the finest rums in the world.   An arena filled with so many award winning rums that it is unbelievable.   You can spend the day wandering the rows of booths and enjoying a sip of so many rums that it isn't even funny.  In many cases a single booth will have four, six or even more expressions for you to sample.

     The arena gives you an opportunity to talk with the people that produce the rums and learn just a ton of information about how it is produced and what gives it the flavors that you are tasting.  This is a very unique opportunity to talk with such famous rum masters as Don Pancho Fernandez, Richard Seale, Tito Cordero, and Frederico Shultz.   All of these people are very interesting to talk to and are the producers of some of the finest rums in the world.

     If you missed this year, don't fret, it will be back again next year and I am sure that you won't miss the opportunity again if you have any desire for fine expressions of rum.  I have had a wonderful week here in Miami  for the festival and will be headed back home to Key West in the afternoon.  I hope that I have peaked your interest enough to be able to meet you here next year.  ;)
