Rum tasting at home
All this with a rum tasting which you can do at home, from your old chair, nice and cosy on the couch, completely dressed in Scottish kilt, or nice and cosy in your jogging trousers, tasting as you like! This is how you taste the most honestly, that bottle of wine you discovered on holiday and brought home a few bottles of? It tastes different when you drink it at home. That's why tasting at home is always the most honest. It's all about the taste, not the environment or the experience.
Bites and food pairing with your rum tasting
It's also great fun to have snacks with your rum tasting, and this can be as simple or elaborate as you like. For example, water or white bread (without toppings) can be used to reset your taste palette between the rums, but you can also make very nice combinations, such as chocolate & rum, nuts & Rum, but even blue cheese with rum. As you taste more rum, you will discover many flavors in rums and learn what is a good match with each other.
Rum Tasting Glasses
The perfect rum tasting glasses
There are many types of rum glasses, but which one is the best for tasting? The most famous rum glass is the Tumbler, the round glass with upright edges, but this is actually not good for tasting at all. In a rum Tumbler, you can not judge the colour very well, but more importantly, the scent and aromas evaporate too quickly, making it difficult to assess the scent and therefore the taste. We therefore always recommend a Glencairn glass, as this glass is specially designed to taste your rum as well as possible. A lot of time and research went into this, resulting in the perfect rum tasting glass!
Perfect for everyone from beginner to rum expert!
We often get the question; Which rum is good for a beginner? And that is one of the most difficult questions. Because tastes differ, do you know where to start? Then we recommend you to just start with a Rum set, this gives you many different styles and you discover the quickest which rum you like best. Once you've discovered which type of rum you like best you can choose one of the other sets that go further in that direction. So there is always plenty to taste.
