Avua Cachaca Prata

Avua Cachaca Prata Rum Review by the fat rum pirateAvua Cachaca Prata. Avua are a brand/bottler rather than the name of a producer. They have the Cachaca distilled and bottled for them. They have began importing Cachaca into the US and Europe recently.

So this is one of the few cachaça I have been reviewing recently that I have a conventional 70cl/700ml “European” bottle. And I can actually get myself another one should I wish to do so! Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Appleton Estate 15 Year Old Limited Edition

Appleton Estate 15 Year Old Limited Edition Rum Review by the fat rum pirateAppleton Estate 15 Year Old Rum. Don’t get too excited about this. I have some bad news. Currently unless you are in Canada – you will struggle to find a bottle of this. As it is an exclusive release for Canada. Which on the face of it seems a bit of an odd decision but odd things do often happen in the world of rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Habitation Velier Foursquare 2015 White Pure Single Rum

Habitation Velier Foursquare 2015 White Pure Single Rum review by the fat rum pirateHabitation Velier Foursquare 2015 White Pure Single Rum. This is quite a rare rum and difficult to come by. I was fortunate enough to be gifted a sample from Steve at Rum Diaries Blog, who even more fortunate to gifted a partially drank bottle at London Rumfest a couple of years ago.

Don Papa Rum Aged 10 Years

Don Papa Rum Aged 10 Years Rum Review by the fat rum pirateDon Papa Rum Aged 10 Years. Alongside Bumbu, Don Papa have become the poster boys for adultered rum masquerading as premium. You could throw a few other rums into the mix, that use additives but Don Papa’s offerings are met with dismay and derision by most serious rum enthusiasts.

Perhaps the biggest reason for this is the sheer success of the brand. So not content with offering us a 7 Year Old version of their delicious elixir they felt that a further aged version of their wonderous concoction, was just what the rum world needed. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cambeba Cachaca Organica 10 Year Old

Cambeba Cachaca Organica 10 Year Old Rum review by the fat rum pirateCambeba Cachaca Organica 10 Year Old. Upon attending the Cachaca festival earlier this year, I was advised by some of the experts there, to try anything that looks like it’s been put in a beer bottle. This seemed quite a bizarre suggestion.

I am not sure if the intention was to ensure I tried Cambeba 10 Year Old but with that in mind I did end up trying it based solely on that rather strange suggestion. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Doctor Bird Jamaica Rum

Doctor Bird Jamaica Rum Review by the fat rum pirateDoctor Bird Jamaica Rum. All the way from the US of A strangely enough. I’ve been fortunate enough to get my hands on a very decent sized sample of this particular rum.

Doctor Bird Jamaica Rum has been causing quite a stir over the other side of the pond. Alongside some Hampden offerings from Stolen (another US Brand), they have given the American’s a couple of rums that us European’s are actually quite envious of. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
