Sipping Rums: Beyond Bacardi

After working at Trader Vic's for its entire five-year run at the beautiful Hotel Valley Ho, I developed quite an appreciation for rum. Most people's familiarity with rum is limited to a mere two brands: Bacardi and Captain Morgan. Sometimes people are also familiar with Sailor Jerry. It's a crying shame that this is as far as rum goes for most people. The world of rum is one of the most vibrant in the world of spirits. Rum has a variety of styles like you wouldn't believe, and the price of entry is quite accessible. But the best part of rum... Every sip is like a trip to the Caribbean in a glass.
