About Me

Here´s a little description taken from the Rum XP (International Rum Expert Panel) website:

Helena Tiare Olsen is a rum connoisseur and tiki drink and cocktail enthusiast living in Stockholm, Sweden. Her life philosophy is “On a demerara rum journey one rum at a time” and to “set the Mai Tai recipe straight wherever she goes.”

Her blog “A Mountain of Crushed Ice” is all about rum, tiki drinks and more. She travels back and forth to her beloved 2nd home New Orleans to see friends and blog the Tales of the Cocktail and have been twice to London for the UK Rumfest.

“Tiare” is well respected among her fellow RumXPs for her excellent photos of cocktails and her professional writing and reviews of great rums, with a special focus on the legendary rums of the Demerara region of Guyana.

She is a member of the International Rum Expert Panel.

This blog was one of the four nominated in the cathegory “Rum Blog of the Year” at the Golden Rum Barrel Awards at the UK Rumfest 2011 and 2012. And in 2013 she won the award “Rum blogger of the Year”

One of this life`s great pleasures is to taste new rums, and new rums always finds their way into the glasses of the true appreciators…
