The Scoring System used by thefatrumpirate.com is the one adopted by Dave Broom in his book the Bible, sorry Rum.
Rum will be rated and compared against similar rum in terms of price, style and preference towards mixing or sipping. A rum marketed solely at mixing’s score is not comparable to that of a more premium priced sipping rum, well it shouldn’t be anyway! Certain styles of rum may be more favoured. This is solely due to my personal preference. This is not a panel of judges.
The scoring system is a simple 5 star affair (half marks will also be awarded).
I have also enabled a new feature which allows my readers to also rate the rum. At the bottom of each review is the facility to simply click and rate the rum.
