Over the years one of the measures by which I've rated rums is how fast they are consumed on my boat. Most of the time, the younger rums are more readily consumed than some of the oldest. Not that they are better but they are more approachable when it's time to have a glass of rum.

But try to explain that to a distiller who enters a 20 year old rum in a competition.

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