This is an informative study of rum for an appreciator of the spirit. Rum is the world's fastest growing pemium spirit, with the USA being its number one market. The first part of the book explores rum's colourful origins and the different production techniques around the world. The second part covers pure rums by country or island of origin, explaining the role of micro-climates and production methods on the resulting style. There is a section on blended and spiced rums and a directory of over 200 rums, arranged alphabetically by brand name, complete with tasting notes and ratings for each. Cocktail suggestions also included, as well as cigar matching.
