Here’s a few rum-related links that I have found very useful in my rum journey. The information found in these sites is way more comprehensive than what I could compile, and their reviews are so much more eloquent than anything I could do, so rather than redo their work, I’ll just link you to it so you can do your own research, you lazy bums:
The Ministry of Rum – Huge resource for all things rum… and a great group of enablers and supporters to keep you strong in your addic… err… enthusiasm.
The Rum Project – The Cap’n has strong opinions on the subject of rum and he pulls no punches telling it how he sees it. It may seem a tad harsh at times with a bit of a darn-younguns-get-off-my-lawn attitude… but no one can deny that the Cap’n knows his rum, and some time on his Rum project website is almost mandatory to all seeking more knowledge.
Bilgemunky – Rum and pirates go together like… hmmm… I don’t think anything rhymes with “pirates”. In any case, you’ll find plenty of both at bilgemunky’ site… along with some of the best reviews in the interwebs.
El Machete Rum – A Cuban from Miami… ’nuff said.
RnD Rum Reviews – A couple of guys who love rum more than you do… and they get to sail around the world enjoying it, so their lives are infinitely better.
The Rumdood – Bartender and rum lover from the So Cal area. Not only does he have some great reviews, but quite the extensive list of cocktails as well.
The Rum Howler Blog – From our neighbors to the north comes this sites with tons of reviews, not just of rum but other spirits as well.
Scottes Rum Pages – Another treasure trove of rum reviews.
As I find more useful stuff I will be adding it here.
