Review of Rum Tasting-Simba Restaurant
night of tasting some great rums and amazing food was a smash hit with all those who attended.
The crowd was welcomed
with a Bacardi Mojito while mingling at the bar.
After everybody was seated they were treated to a brief lecture by
"The Rumelier" about rum and it's place in the Caribbean. Also details of how sugarcane becomes one of the world's
favourite spirits was explained. While the crowd was learning about rum, they were given the chance to smell some of the ingredients
and flavours that make up the noble spirit with a sniff of a rum tasting kit.
After the brief lecture the tasting began
with Bacardi 8 Year Old. This was closely followed by the first course, lobster ceviche.
The night progressed with
more premium rums from throughout the Caribbean paired up perfectly with outstanding food courses from the various islands.
This included, snapper, ribs, and lamb with things like creole and pepper sauce.
After all the thanks were given
a brief survey of which were the favourite rums of the night was taken, and here are the results:-
Ron Zacapa 23 Year Old - Guatemala
2 Bacardi 8 Year Old - Bahamas
Master Blender Legacy - Jamaica
4 Admiral Rodney - ST. Lucia
Reserve 15 Year Old - Haiti
6 Mount Gay Extra Old - Barbados
After the brief
survey everyone retired to the bar where cigars were available and more rum if neccessary.

Simba Rum Tasting Review
A fun night of food and fine
rums was had by all those who attended the Jamiacan Rum Dinner at Horse Eye Jacks in Blue
After a late start and a quick presentation on rum production by The Rumelier, the
guests were ready to eat the great food prepared by the staff of Horse Eye Jacks and sample some of the fine rums produced
by Appleton Estate in Jamaica.
The food was all Jamaican and came by the huge plate full.
Little room was left for the fine rums being sampled, but somehow everyone managed to make space for them.
The highlight of the rums was undoubtedly the Appleton Estate Master Blender Legacy and the world famous Appleton
Estate 21 Year Old. The Appleton 21 Year Old was paired with carrot cake and the rum cream with coffee, this was a perfect
This was a great location for a rum tasting, inside one of the tiki rooms. When
combined with a nice ocean breeze, the sounds of Jamaican music, the fine rums and great food, what more could a rum lover
