“Sipping rum” is the Scotch of the rum world, sometimes referred to as simply “premium rum.” And it’s an emerging trend.
This is not the rum you put in a Pina Colada. No paper umbrella. These rums are created and matured by master blenders to be consumed by discerning palates.
I serve it straight up, on the rocks or in a snifter as an alternative to a scotch, brandy or port.
Most rums are produced in the Caribbean, and most well-known rum producers are all making premium offerings, but look for these produced in Nicaragua and Guyana
