The Taste That Makes You Feel Awesome

How to Taste Local South African Rum

When trying a rum for the first time, especially a craft rum, you want to get the full experience of it. There are a few ways to ensure that you enjoy it in its entirety.

Drink at Room Temperature

Highly chilled spirits take away from the taste and aroma, so it’s best to drink craft rum at room temperature.

Sip Twice

The first sip at a rum tasting will prepare your tastebuds and allow them to acclimate. The second sip will have the true effect on the senses, and allow your tastebuds to experience all the different flavours that the rum has to offer.

Stay Hydrated During Tasting

A moist palate will allow the flavours of the rum to really shine through. Sip some filtered water in between sips to fully appreciate the essence of the rum; plus, it will keep you hydrated throughout the tasting process.
