Default What the Numbers Mean

0-25 A Rum with a rating this low would actually Kill you.
26-49 Depending upon your Fortitude score you might survive this.
50 -59 You are safe to drink this...but you probably shouldn't.
60-64 You may offer this to people you do not want to see again.
65-69 Someone may offer you this. You should decline.
70-74 Now we have a fair rum. Accept this graciously.
75-79 You may begin to serve this to friends.
80-84 Very Good Rum.
85-89 Excellent!
90-94 You may want to hoard this for youself.
95-97.5 The Cream of the Crop
98+ I haven't met this rum yet...but I want to.

Very loosely we may put my scores into terms that you may be familiar with on a Gold, Solver, Bronze scale as follows:

70 - 80 Bronze Medal (Recommended as a mixer)
81 - 89 Silver Medal (Recommended Rum)
90 - 95 Gold Medal (Highly Recommended)
95.5+ Platinum Award (Highest Recommendation)
