BemBom do Brasil Cachaca

BemBom do Brasil Cachaca rum review by the fat rum pirateBemBom do Brasil is a cachaça aimed at the European market. I first came across it at a Rum Festival in Bristol, not Brasil back towards the end of 2017. I have since seen it at other rum festivals around the UK.

It is marketed as “Brazilian Rum” and cachaça at the same time by the company that market it. It has its own website.

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
