World's Best Rum, Of Course... (José Ignacio Soler, Venezuela, 06/15/16 10:13 am)

John E. has been promoting the WAIS '17 meeting in Cuba. It is a perfect place for me to attend, as it is close. Also, I would like to go back to Havana, and the topics proposed so far are very attractive. I must say that it is my current intention to participate.  However Venezuela's difficult future and uncertainty might make it difficult for me to go for certain. We´ll see.

John also responded to Tor G's last post with "Guinness might be a stretch, Tor, but how about a smooth sip of Havana Club Añejo? It's as complex as a fine cognac, and still not available for purchase here in the US." I have tried this rum several times. It is good, but compared with Venezuelan rums it is low on the quality scale.

It is a well-known fact, that among the few quality things this country produces is rum. Apparently the sugarcane´s excellent sugar quality content and a very long, old, manufacturing tradition are the causes.

For several years this country's rums have qualified as the best rums in the world. For three years in a row, Ron Carúpano (a small eastern town) has been prized "The Best Rum of The World" in the IV Edición del Congreso Internacional del Ron de Madrid, where more than 300 worldwide labels participated.

Of course, as with food, I believe the individual subjective criteria to qualify the quality of a drink must be "the one I like best." But in my experience, I am almost pretty sure, the Venezuelan rums are the best I have ever tried anywhere.

In fact, right now I am tasting a cup of this rum. ¡Salud!

JE comments: Salud, Nacho!  Wish I could join you.  And even more importantly, how might I score an invitation as the Official WAIS Emissary to the Fifth International Conference on Rum?

Perhaps I can entice Nacho to take a bottle of Carúpano to Havana for a taste test.  Sometimes Newcastle needs extra coal.

October 6th through 8th, 2017.
