In this episode, we chat with Lance Surujbally of The Lone Caner about his Key Rums of the World series—one of our favorite pieces of rum writing online right now. It’s an essential series for anyone wishing to understand the rums that are defining the modern era, whether you’re new to the category or have enjoyed it for years. Lance talked us through the origin of the series, how he settled on his criteria for a key rum, the challenges of the project, why the series is important, which entries have gotten pushback, what we might see next in the series, and much more. At the end, we discuss the art of review writing, the importance of disclosure and transparency, the transience of rum discourse, and have a few laughs along the way.
