Best in Show would be the Beagle.

Each breed of dog is judged against a standard for that particular breed. Beagles are judged against a theoretical perfect beagle, and poodles are judged against a theoretical perfect poodle. The dog that comes closest to its' own breed standard is awarded best-in-show.

Beagles are never judged against the standard for poodles.

Awarding a single best in show for rums would be problematic. A 2-year aged rum is not a distinct breed, rather it aspires to taste as good as a 5-year aged rum. So it would be difficult to claim a such thing as a perfect 2-year old rum. There is really no easy way to level the playing field so that a 2-year old rum can be fairly evaluated against a 5 year old rum.
