Sources of info

As is made clear in the “about“-section of this blog, it’s not in any way a source of original research. Instead, it’s a travel journal of a beginner trying to make sense of the rum world. It’s me jotting down things I come across that I find interesting and intriguing. It’s a record of my way to, I hope, increased knowledge. That way goes through the many excellent books, blogs and websites that are dedicated to different aspects of rum. Following is a list of links to some of my favourite sources that I go to when I want to learn more! (Constantly finding new good sources, so this list will surely grow!)
