How to Read Rum Reviews

Reading reviews of spirits can be tricky, because the core of any spirit review is subjective. How should you interpret the reviewer's words? When reading a review, here are some questions to ask:

Does the reviewer appear to be working with a sound comparative methodology?

Is what you're reading corroborated by several sources?

Is what you're reading merely marketing claims reiterated by a "journalist"?

Is there a date on the review?

What else has the reviewer reviewed recently?

Sources for quality reviews do exist. For one example of credible, professional reviews, we recommend Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal
