Default Rum IQ

I know most people in this forum have a pretty good knowledge of rum. I've added a Rum IQ quiz. Take a look and see how many times you have to try to get all of the questions right.

I have no doubt you will disagree with me, so I'll plan on answering your questions here.

Hey Ed! this was fun!
I got 6 questions right and then it took me 3 times in all to get the other 4 right..I`m amazed to learn that all those spirits can be made anywhere in the world..i thought Tequila only could be made in Mexico..?

Tequila can only be made in Mexico but unless it is 100% agave tequila it contains molasses based distillate.

Great idea, Ed. Besides getting to test our rum IQ, this is a great and fun way to learn more about rum. Keep the ideas coming.

I can see this is going to require a lot more work. More quizzes and more calculations. The current quiz is a beta test of what's coming.

You say Puerto Rican rums are lighter bodied than USVI rums, Ed?

Yes, Puerto Rican rums are typically lighter in body than the rums from St Croix, the only rum producing island in the USVI. Ron del Barrilito is heavier than most of the other Puerto Rican rums, but that is the exception.
