The Rum Jury Competition and Awardsthe annual blind tasting and judging event
The Annual Rum Jury Competition
The Rum Jury Competition is a subset of the prestigious RumXP competition.
The members of the International Rum Expert Panel are seasoned judges who participate in international rum tasting competitions around the globe. Their RumXP awards are among the most prestigious accolades in the spirits business.
At the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival, RumXP leader Robert Burr organizes the Rum Jury to evaluate consumer preferences and trends in the rum category.
These qualified rum judges were presented with an array of blind tasting samples to evaluate using the same strict standards and procedures employed by the international rum experts in their competition.
The results of the Rum Jury Competition — the Rum Jury Awards — were shared with rum producers, distillers, importers and distributors. Consumer rum tasting awards were issued to the top rated spirits as judged by members of the rum jury.
