In this Wednesday, April 17, 2013 photo, bottles of rum are numbered, so that judges at the Miami Rum Festival can see what they tasted during a judging session. Rum: It's not just the alcohol that made you queasy in college. And it's not all the same. Thousands of people are expected to attend the weeklong festival that begins April 15 in Miami to sample more than 200 kinds of rum and discuss industry trends. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter)
