I live in Ottawa, Canada, and most of my rums are from the LCBO (Ontario) and SAQ (Quebec). However, a good number are from other Canadian provinces, USA and other countries.
I've reviewed the rums with a single purpose...keep it simple! The categories are: sniff, sip and swallow. Based on the scores for each category, this will determine the overall rum rating.
I'm also providing my opinion on the overall value of the rum (ie. is it worth buying) based on what I paid for it versus the overall rating.
