They will also learn to differentiate the rums based on their style, congener content and age. This knowledge will serve as a foundation as the group then moves to the practical phase, where numerous rums will be tasted during exercises aimed at fine-tuning the senses.
Lastly, the course will conclude with a Rum Mixology session aimed at highlighting both the technical and practical aspect of excellent rum-based cocktails.
