Recommended Posts

I am suprised that nobody has posted information on this as yet.

So to inform our members, some of you might be able to get away

to be there. So here is the information as I know. The various

web sites mentioned are information sites where I found my information.

WHAT - INTERNATIONAL RUM FESTIVAL 2002

WHERE- St Johns Newfoundland, Canada. at the Fairmont Hotel

http:/www.fairmont.com (look for Newfoundland)

WHEN- September 1st to 5th.

WHO- Caribbean Week The Regional Newspaper of the Caribbean

from Barbados. Tim Forsythe has run the C.W.R.T.T.( Caribbean Week

Rum Taste Test) for Thirteen years. Now they are expanding and bringing

Caribbean rums directly to North America for a panel of experts to tast

and a public exhibition.

Read up on information as to who will participate and which rums are going

to be there, this is a preliminary list.I am told.

ARRHHHHHHHHHH,

I can't believe that I missed it. I just saw your post today. I was only a 12 hour drive away (from Montreal). Man, I'm pissed...

Oh, well. I'll just have to get my stuff together and NOT miss next year, were ever it is.

I thought IFR 2002 was suppose to be in Guatemala due to the festival heavy weight champion Ron Zacapa? Oh well... Until next year friends...


"Traveler, you who sail into the Caribbean in silvered yacht or gilded cruise ship, pause as you enter these waters to remember that deep below rest three men of honor who helped determine the history of this onetime Spanish Lake: Sir John Hawkins, builder of the English navy; Sir Francis Drake, conqueror of all known seas; Admiral Ledesma, stubborn enhancer of his king's prerogatives and the interests of his own strong family"

Any sites post the results yet?

[EDIT]

The September Newsletter has a sneak peak of the winners, on page 6. Click here for the full story.

Looks like Ron Zacapa Centenario XO kept the belt, winner Super Premium.

But, Zaya beats out Ron Zacapa for the Premium award.

A new one for me takes the cake in the regular category, Ron Lorenzo Dark Reserve

Happy reading for those of us that could not go, or missed it...

Cheers
