I've been asked to come up with 5 rums that can be added to the menu of a private members club in London. I'd estimate their bar has around 8 different Gins and 15-20 Whiskeys, but only 2 Rums (Lambs Navy Dark Rum and Bacardi Superior) which obviously needs to be rectified
Now, my list of 5 new ones that would help out their bar would be:
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva
Ron Zacapa 23
Havana Club 7
If you could only pick 5 rums for a bar to stock that would a) improve customers appreciation of rum and b) give a broad view of the different Rums that are available, what would they be? They have to be easy to get hold of in the UK which i'm afraid rules out quite a lot of the great stuff you can get hold of in the US and Canada.
Grateful for any views and specifically critique of my list of 5.
p.s. i haven't handed over my suggestions to the club yet so please add suggestions and they might make it onto the list.
