How to Read Rum Reviews
Reading reviews of spirits can be tricky, because the core of any spirit review is subjective. How should you interpret the reviewer's words? When reading a review, here are some questions to ask:
Does the reviewer appear to be working with a sound comparative methodology?
Is what you're reading corroborated by several sources?
Is what you're reading merely marketing claims reiterated by a "journalist"?
Is there a date on the review?
What else has the reviewer reviewed recently?
Sources for quality reviews do exist. For one example of credible, professional reviews, we recommend Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal
