5 steps for rum tasting

1. Preparation
Find a quiet place with good lighting and a comfortable temperature. We need, for each taster, a separate glass for each rum we are going to enjoy, plus a glass of water and a basket of bread that will help us cleanse our palate each time before moving on to the next rum.
2. Appearance
Gently raise the glass and search for the right angle to assess the colour – the darkness indicating of how long the rum has aged. Slowly swirl the rum in the glass and hold it to the light to observe the 'tears'. Their slowness and thickness indicate the oiliness of the rum and the conditions of ageing.
3. Aroma
First, cleanse the palate with water to refresh as the taste buds. Unlike with wine, don’t swirl in the glass, which would release too much alcohol and disguise the aromas. Slowly approach the rim of the glass with your nose to sense the first notes of the aroma, exploring what they evoke in your personal memory.
4. Palate
Take a small sip to create a tingling sensation on the tongue. Swallow the rum, Then take a normal sip and circulate the liquid all round the mouth. Close your eyes and let yourself be transported by a sea of sensations: each taster’s experience will be different as we associate the tastes and aromas with our own personal memories.
5. Endnotes
Take a small sip and swallow it directly to best sense the rum’s aftertaste and endnotes. Swirl the empty glass until there is no trace of liquid left. Place it upside down on the table and wait 1 minute. Smell the empty glass to assess in the absence of alcohol the true aromas of Cuban rum derived from the natural ageing process.
