Elements Eight Rum Company was founded back in 2006. We recently conducted an interview with Carl Stephenson the owner of Elements Eight. As a result of this we have been able to gain a lot of insight and information on Elements Eights rums.
Early in my own “Rum Journey” my wife bought me a bottle of Elements Eight Gold Rum. I actually reviewed it a couple of years ago for the site. As part of a re-branding Elements Eight have opted to rename their Gold Rum to something more distinctive and meaningful. So it has been re-named Vendome. I’m re-reviewing this as I’m curious to see if my opinion has changed much. I’m assured by Carl that the rum is the same now as it was then. I do know that my taste had changed slightly and my awareness has improved vastly since those days!
