Thought I knew about rum until I did this tasting. Learned so much from Renato's wealth of information and storytelling. The rums got better with each tasting but the second one was my favorite. The chocolates paired well with the rums and my tastebuds. I could not stop eating. I loved the intimate setting and small group. It was my brother's birthday and Renato and his team made it extra special by preparing a slice of delicious cheesecake with candle to help me celebrate his birthday. We met a lot of cool people (all from the US like us). Definitely would recommend to my clients and friends!

Top notch experience. Renato is the best. He’s super knowledgeable about Rum, he has a great passion for it and each rum tastes perfect with its pairing. We had a late afternoon tasting and are still on a high from it into the night.He also knows so much about the hot spots in the city. My girlfriend and I are very pleased with our ticket purchase.

My boyfriend and I did a rum and chocolate tasting with Renato and loved it!! It was a unique experience which was definitely our highlight in Cartagena!We tasted different Colombian rums and were impressed by the variety. The chocolates were delicious and a perfect addition to the rum!Renato was a wonderful host with a profound knowledge, through which he could answer all of our questions and led us through the tasting experience. We would definitely recommend this tasting to anyone who likes rum or is just curious about it - a perfect evening, prepared with all love and detail!

This is an absolutely incredible experience to be a part of. You get to sample a wide variety of Colombian rums that the creator (Renalto) has personally selected, paired with some phenomenal Colombian chocolates. The experience is very casual, while still knowing that you’re dealing with an expert. For gaining an understanding of Colombian rum, the history, the geography, and the flavor behind it, you can’t get a better experience.

Simply incredible. As a whiskey drinker, I always thought rum was something only to use as a mixer in a daiquiri. NO MORE! The rums I tried were incredible. I'm so glad I took this tasting class. Great rums, great people, great time 🙂

This was a great experience in Cartagena. It was well set-up and everything we tasted was great. Renato was amazing -- he was very knowledgeable about everything he was speaking about. He also was extremely responsive to messages that we sent ahead of time when we had questions about switching times. My husband was sick and we were afraid we wouldn't make it and he worked with us to come up with other solutions in case we had to miss the activity. But luckily we were able to go and we are so happy we made it!
