Rum Tasting...in Canada
With our liquor laws and this is addressed particularly to B.C. forumites (all others chime in), I would like to hold a rum tasting at a private club that I belong to. Heck...I'm the Director of Education!
Currently, the rage is for single malt scotch. The scene is informal but about 20 - 25 folks show up. I figure, maybe six, 1/2 ounce samplers (numbered - not named) with some dialogue could make a good evening to encourage rum appreciation when labels are revealed.
So, what 6 rums should I choose?
Ideally 3 or 4 stellar Caribbean rums and a couple, off the wall...Indian, Phillipine???
Okay, its not a wine tasting, but are there equally acceptable (finger food?) things that could be served between tastings? Any suggestions?
And its a Yacht Club (very laid back)...a bunch of grizzly sailor guys & gals who supposedly know their rum. I doubt it! HELP
