Coup de coeurThis rating "favorite" is awarded based on purchase intentions in relation to price. This bottle had 11 points in the session. This makes it a best buy in terms of value for money.

This session was the second to present rum to whisky lovers. The exercise is interesting in more ways than one, and the very large discrepancies in almost all bottles are a good illustration. This session also showed the difficulty of gathering whisky lovers around a blind tasting of rum.
