Bristol Classic Rum Foursquare 2004-2016

Bristol Classic Rum Foursquare 2004-2016 Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBristol Classic Rum Foursquare 2004-2016. Another rum from the Foursquare Distillery, Barbados. This is the first Independent bottling I have reviewed for a while. Mainly due to the distillery themselves, being so prolific recently.

Rhum Clement Vieux Select Barrel

Rhum Clement Vieux Select Barrel Rum Review by the fat rum pirateRhum Clement Vieux Select Barrel. We’ve featured a couple of Rhum Clement offerings on the site so far. As I continue to expand my horizons in the r(h)um world I will be trying a lot more Agricole Rhum and Cachaca.
