The 2011 RumXP International Tasting Competition was held at the Deauville Beach Resort on Miami Beach April 27-29 as part of the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival.
More than 20 members of the International Rum Expert Panel participated and more than 80 of the finest rums in the world were presented for evaluation.
The RumXPs were sequestered in their tasting room for three days of blind tasting trials. The rums were grouped and judged in categories of white, gold, aged, old aged, premium aged, dark, spiced, flavored and overproof.
Their collective expertise as a group of judges is unrivaled in the spirits world. Their combined experience spans many dozens of countries and hundreds of brands. They are authors, lecturers, trainers, historians, journalists, consultants, collectors, proprietors, mixologists and promoters of rum.
Congratulations to all the fine rum brands and their outstanding spirits.
