Says Judge Paul Artrip of Key West of the RumXP Blind Tasting Competition held annually at Miami Rum Renaissance Festival:

"The Rum Daddy" is one of the original RumXP judges. "The attraction of the Rum Renaissance Festival to serious rum lovers is the depth of participating distilleries from around the world. Rum and cane spirits are pan-global; Miami is the perfect global American city to host this event."
