Understanding rum - Valerie Bradshaw


We wanted to understand rum at a deeper level and invited Valerie Bradshaw to the Cigar Sense Parlor of 12 September last.

Valerie is a professional wine and spirits assessor. She is also a member of the Cigar Sense trained panel. You can visit her website at valbradshaw.com.

We extracted the most audio relevant clips from our Parlor meeting, so you can learn about the different rum styles, how rum is produced and distilled, what are the keys to rum aging and angel share, what are the best rum tasting glasses and a lot more.
