S.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Jamaica 2007 PX Cask Finish

S.B.S 1423 Single Barrel Selection Jamaica 2007 Rum review by the fat rum pirateS.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Jamaica 2007 PX Cask Finish. Rums from Jamaica have really taken off again over the past couple of years. The renaissance of the Worthy Park Estate and Hampden finally bottling their own aged rum, along with a number of very interesting high ester Jamaican bottlings from the likes of Kill Devil and Letter of Marque. All this activity, has really invigorated Jamaican rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

That Boutique-y Rum Company Issan Rum Thailand

That Boutique-y Rum Company Issan Rum Thailand review by the fat rum pirateThat Boutique-y Rum Company Issan Rum Thailand. The Issan Distillery is situated in the North of Thailand. They release their own rums under the name of the distillery. I’m pretty sure they don’t have much of a distribution deal in Europe (particularly the UK) because I cannot recall seeing any of their own releases for sale here.

Sagatiba Cristalina Cachaca Pura

Sagatiba Cristalina Cachaca Rum review by the fat rum pirateSagatiba Cristalina Cachaca Pura. In all honesty I had quite forgotten this brand of cachaça even existed. Way back in 2009 before I had really started any kind of rum or cachaça journey I enjoyed the occasional bottle of Bacardi. Back then that was “premium” to me and yes we are talking about the Carta Blanca and flavoured variants. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Ron del Barrilito 3 Star

Ron del Barrilito 3 Star Rum Review by the fat rum pirateRon del Barrilito 3 star. This is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and controversial “rums” in the rum world. On researching this rum, it seems history has been re-written time and time again with regards as to what exactly this rum really is.

A lot of the confusion is caused by “word of mouth” and people passing on information from brand ambassadors, fellow enthusiasts and on occasion the actual producers of Ron del Barrilito. If you try and research this rum you are left with the impression, this could be anything from the greatest rum ever, to a very average “spiced” rum. As with most things, the truth when such polar opposites exist is perhaps more somewhere around the centre of the argument! Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Bristol Classic Rum Reserve Rum of Grenada Distilled in 2003 Rum review by the fat rum pirateBristol Classic Rum Reserve Rum of Grenada Distilled in 2003. It has been a long while since I have reviewed any of Bristol Classic Rum’s range. As far as I am aware they haven’t been all that active recently with new releases. This is a rum from the Westerhall Estate.

It has also been quite a while since I reviewed any rum from Grenada. I think the last thing I did on Grenada was an interview with Mark Reynier about the Renegade Rum project. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Ypioca Cinco Chaves

Ypioca Cinco Chaves cachaca rum review by the fat rum pirateYpioca Cinco Chaves. People in the UK may be familiar with the Ypioca brand. In time for the 2014 World Cup in Brasil, Sainsburys one of the countries leading supermarkets decided to stock some Brasillian Cachaca.
