Zacapa baby

haha, yea, zacapa killed it.

I wouldn't exactly say Zacapa killed it.

Zacapa did enter some very good rums and was rewarded, but like I told the guests at the reception following the competition, I don't want to drink any rum to the exclusion of all others.

Oronoco wasn't in the competition, but there were a number of excellent white rums in that category as well.

There were a number of new rums that aren't even in the US market yet.

And as important as the rums was the company of so many rum lovers and friends from around the world, several of whom I've corresponded with for many years.

Ybor City proved to be a great venue with a number of restaurants within walking distance of hotels and the old cigar factory building where the tasting took place.

    Hi Ed,<br>

Ybor was a great event, wasn't it? One Barrel rum won a gold medal, and that was especially nice. What's next, an event in Jamaica?<br>  <br>

There is a big rum festival planned for London nexted spring...watch this space.

When I read about the evils of drinking rum...I stopped reading...because life is too short, so smile and enjoy yourself...

Mr. Wayne Curtis has published the results of the Tasting Competition at the 2007 International Cane Spirits Festival in Ybor City, Florida.

I was interested to discover that Fazenda Mae de Ouro has a 5 year old single barrel Cachaca. Sounds tasty!
