Rum Bahamas Awards

The 2nd annual Festival Rum Bahamas in beautiful Nassau was a huge success drawing more than 4000 attendees over the last weekend in February. Like last year, event organizers put together a juried tasting competition with more than 50 of the world’s best rums. 10 judges from the Bahamas and the US evaluated these rums based on a variety of characteristics and chose the top three in each category. Here are the winners.
