I have been thinking of adding a few simple 'sliders' below the 1-10 rating field, possibly including sweet/dry and Spicy/No spice. Quite a few users have mentioned wanting tags of some kind, and I thought this might be an easy way to start. With this information we could also start matching the right profiles to user tastes (eg you rated these dry rums high, here are similar dry rums). Any thoughts on if sliders would add value or would just be annoying? And if a few (no more than 2-3) sliders were added, what ranges would be the best?

I am probably one of the very few on here that has all of their rums in a very detailed spreadsheet, so these proposed sliders would be a minor annoyance to me. Then again, I cannot speak for the rest.
I am also now to the point of mainly doing repeat purchases of rums that I know that are really good. I have found that if I spend more than $50 US on a bottle of rum and expect it to wind up in my top ten percent, that only has a 25% chance of happening. A few of those actually wound up in my lower 30% that I have rated as a 5 or below to never be purchased again. This really has put a damper on me wanting to risk trying new ones. The vast majority of my ratings wind up as a 7 or 6, being good but not great. I certainly don't need any more of these.
I personally have 12 categories of rums ranked as a continuum. I had so many coconut rums that I just had to create their own category separate from flavored. They are, in order:
Just a suggestion Andy, but could you not also add scratch & sniff, also scratch and lick options ?

Personally I would dig something like that.
We are bourbon drinkers trying to dip our toes in the waters of rum. We've tried to find the drier, less sweet rums to start with so something we could use to narrow down our selections would be appreciated.
