Default My third rum tasting

I have been holding rum tastings for friends over the last while and am having my third this weekend. I usually try to have a few friends over that appreciate rum and a few that are just starting. I hold the tasting blind. I display all of the bottles on the table but the participants do not know which theyy are tasting. This makes things very interesting as it eliminates bias. One friend saw that he was going to be tasting Pussers and explained to me how he hated the brand. At the end of the night it ended up being his 2nd favorite. The following is my menu for the night. Barcelo Imperial, Diplomatica Reserva Exclusiva, El Dorado 21, Elements eight, Homere Clement Curvee, Pampero Anniversario, Prichards Fine Rum, Renegade Hampden 2000, Tondena Dark and Zacapa 23.
