Tasting rum is a sensory experience that requires some discipline and understanding of the medium to make the most of the opportunity. A small sip is all you need to understand the flavor profile of rum. At fine tasting events, quarter ounce samples are served, and that's more than enough to discern and savor the intent of the producer.
Rum is fun. And rum loving people are fun loving people. Share the rum tasting experience with friends, compare notes and express the flavors and impressions you're experiencing to contrast and confirm with others. This is a unique learning experience. Not everyone will agree on their favorites, but some expressions manage to please almost everyone.
The Miami Rum Renaissance Festival is a three day event. Of course it's a great idea to have a hotel room nearby to relax and take in the experience. Take your time, there is no rush. Enjoy a seminar or two, take a rest and drink plenty of water along the way. It's also a good idea to use a car service to ensure that you're able to enjoy the experience without worrying about your driving needs.
Many people have brought their rum for you to taste from near and far. A lot of effort goes into producing this event so you can casually saunter around the room and discover great rums in a comfortable setting. It's appropriate to be polite and appreciative of these efforts as you increase your knowledge of rum. It's not necessary to over-indulge or engage in spring break style celebrations in this setting. Enjoy the experience with reverence and always conduct yourself in a respectful manner to gain the most appreciation of the event.
