In October I'm heading to Havana, Cuba again to do a rum tasting. I love these one day excursions to talk about one of my favorite subjects in a land where rum is a very important part of their economy.
When I think about rum in Cuba I think about Santiago de Cuba, the area where the daiquiri was created and the original rum home of the Bacardi family. There are still many reminders for the people of the "revolucion" on the walls throughout Cuba. This one in in Santiago de Cuba.
