Hattiers Premium Reserve Rum

Hattiers Premium Reserve Rum Review by the fat rum pirateHattiers Premium Reserve Rum. Blended rum (particularly from multi islands) has been on the decline recently, in terms of new products. I can’t think of all that many multi island blends that have popped up recently. Unfortunately this has been mainly due to the sheer volume of Spiced Rum which is constantly entering the low and mid range of the market. You don’t need any multi island blend for much of that rubbish. Just cheap base spirit from Trinidad. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Berry Bros & Rudd The Classic Range Barbados Rum

Berry Bros & Rudd The Classic Range Barbados Rum review by the fat rum pirateBerry Bros & Rudd The Classic Range Barbados Rum. Berry Bros & Rudd or Berrys’ have been bottling Premium Rum from all around world, for all the time I have been interested in rum.

At one stage they were one of the few Independent bottlers. Their bottlings would typically be at 46% ABV, which at the time was pretty much the standard set in both rum and whisky. Berrys’ have never released a whole range of “Cask Strength” rums like some bottlers have chosen to do. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Rivers Royale Grenadian Rum 69%

Rivers Royale Grenadian Rum 69% Rum review by the fat rum pirateRivers Royale Grenadian Rum. Rivers is a historic brand of Overproof rum from the Caribbean Island of Grenada. It is not a Grenadine flavoured rum. Definitely not.

It is a rum a lot of Rum Enthusiasts will hear about. It has taken me quite a long time to try this. I finally found a store in the UK/Europe that had it in stock. Many, will hear about this rum but nowhere near as many will ever try Rivers Royale Grenadian Rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Don Q Double Cask Finish Puerto Rican Rum Finished in Sherry Casks Rum review by the fat rum pirateDon Q Double Cask Finish Puerto Rican Rum Finished in Sherry Casks. Snappy little name for it eh? Maybe not but at least it goes some way to describing the contents of this bottle.

Which is a lot more than can often be said for the lighter latin style of rums from Central and South America. This is the second Double Cask Finish rum Don Q have released in recent times. The Vermouth Cask finish, I have yet to review. I’ll get round to it though don’t worry. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
