Rum Reviews

Rum is a fun category that’s enjoyed a revival of interest in recent years, with craft rum producers joining the market alongside classic brands. Though often associated with the Caribbean and island nations, good rum can be found all over the world, from North and South America to Asia, Australia and even Africa. And while these rums can vary wildly, they do have something in common: sugar cane.

Sugarcane is the backbone of rum and can be utilized in many ways. Most commonly, rum is distilled from the byproduct of the fermentation process–molasses. But it can also be distilled from fresh-pressed sugarcane juice, a practice employed by rhum agricole makers that is most closely associated with Martinique. And then there’s cachaça, a Brazilian-born cousin to rum. For convenience sake, we’ve grouped rum, rhum agricole and cachaça here in one place. It’s a broad category enjoyed the world over, and while rum is a popular addition to tiki drinks, tropical cocktails and even plenty of classics like the daiquiri, good aged rums deserve to be sipped just like the finest whiskeys.

Below you’ll find a stockpile of rum reviews, regularly updated as we sample new bottles.
