I'm bummed that I didn't make it up to Victoria while I was in Seattle a couple of weeks ago, but I can't do everything.

As for solera, I feel that term is very much over-used in the rum industry with only Santa Teresa using anything that comes close to a true solera aging system. Certainly Zacapa is good rum, but Solera, well it's more of a dynamic blending process with Solera used more for marketing than the actual process.

Glad everyone enjoyed the evening and hopefully they learned something about sugar cane spirits.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
