On this episode of the award-winning podcast Life Behind Bars, co-hosts David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum discuss these developments, including the rise of collectible pot still rums and the associated snobbery, as well as the recent fiery debates on social media among rum aficionados.
If you enjoy rum or whiskey, listen to this episode of Life Behind Bars right away. Cheers!
