Best White Rum - 2015

The Fifty Best White Rum Tasting 2015


The Tasting:
The Fifty Best held a “blind” tasting of 9 white rums (including 2 rhum agricoles) with 15 pre-qualified judges. The rhum agricoles were judged and scored separately. Strict tasting rules were applied. The order of service was established beforehand by lottery. Each of the rums were poured into fresh glasses from new sealed bottles, and served at slightly above room temperature. Only ice water, neutral unflavored crackers and chips were available to cleanse the palate.

The judges wrote down their impressions of each product on score sheets. The scoring was done on a 5-point system, with 5 as the best. Double-Gold, Gold and Silver medals are awarded according to a set range of final point scores received from the judges. There were no bronze medals awarded for this tasting.

The tasting notes that follow are summaries of the judges’ opinions, with all replicated commentary eliminated. The countries and states of origin are identified for each brand.

Great story but what about Bacardi Superior? Sometimes I think the tasters can get carried away with themselves and overlook an old favorite. When mixing cocktails you want the base spirit to be prominent but not overpowering. I still believe for the classic lime Daquiri, nothing beats Bacardi!
