Casa Bucco Cachaca Envelhecida 6 Anos

Casa BuccCasa Bucco Cachaca Envelhecida 6 Anos review by the fat rum pirateCasa Bucco Cachaca Envelhecida 6 Anos. Casa Bucco has been producing Cachaca in Brasil since 1925. The family has even more history in spirits production in their native Italy producing Grappa. Once the family emigrated to Brasil they began producing cachaça.

Based in the Rio das Antas Valley, much of the sugarcane is harvested from the mountain areas. Like many of the cachacas I have reviewed the sugar cane is harvested organically. Due to the terroir it is noted that the sugar cane of Casa Bucco has a very high sugar content. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

That Boutique-y Rum Company Travellers Distillery Belize 10 Year Old

That Boutique-y Rum Company Travellers Distillery Belize Rum Review by the fat rum pirateThat Boutique-y Rum Company Travellers Distillery Belize 10 Year Old. I haven’t covered an awful lot of rums from the Travellers Distillery, Belize. This is mainly due to the fact that the distilleries own brands such as One Barrel are more often than not “dosed” with additives in some way. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Worthy Park Special Cask Release Madeira

Worthy Park Special Cask Release Madeira rum review by the fat rum pirateWorthy Park Special Cask Release Madeira. This rum is noted as being number 4 in the Worthy Park run of Cask Selection releases.

Unlike the Port Cask rum this is a vintage from 2013 – like the Oloroso and Marsala casks that preceded it. The price of this is reflected, as it cheaper than the 2008 Port Cask release. I also have the Sherry Cask release to review. The Virgin Oak edition I tried at London Rumfest in October has yet to surface in retail…….. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cachaca de Alambique Sucuri 2 Anos

Cachaca de Alambique Sucuri 2 Anos Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCachaca de Alambique Sucuri 2 Anos. Sucuri is the common name used in Brasil for an Anaconda. As a result, Cachaca Sucuri is produced at the intriguingly named, Anaconda Ranch in Vilhena, Rondonia.

The beginnings of cachaca production started at the ranch in 1999. when Joao Zanin moved his family there. Inspired by his father, who had also produced cachaça, as part of a self sustainability lifestyle. In 2000 Cachaca de Alambique Sucuri was born and began to be sold and marketed in the surrounding state. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Dose Classica Serie Ouro

Dose Classica Serie Ouro Cachaca Rum review by the fat rum pirateDose Classica Serie Ouro. This is a relatively new cachaça brand which was formed in 2002 by Ralphe Ferreira Jr, who was inspired by his grandfather’s love of Cachaca.

Dose Classica simply translates as “The Classic Dose”. In this instance I do not think the producers are referring to the type of “dose” or “dosage” that some corners of the rum world like to refer to. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Rum 970 Agricola de Madeira Reserva Ans 6 Anos

Rum 970 Agricola de Maderia Reserva Ans 6 Anos Rum review by the fat rum pirateRum 970 Agricola de Maderia Reserva Ans 6 Anos. This Agricole style rum was produced at the Engenhos do Norte (North Milling Company) Distillery, on the Portuguese island of Madeira. Which is (unsurprisingly) more famous for being the home of Madeira wine.

Rum 970 Agricola de Madeira Reserva Ans 6 Anos is, as mentioned already, produced in an agricole style from freshly pressed cane juice. The rums at Engenhos do Norte are, from what I gather produced on both Copper Pot and a Barbet Column stills. This rum (if I have translated the rear label correctly) is produced on a Copper Pot “Alembic” Still. The rum has been aged for a minimum of 6 years on Madeira. The ABV is a respectable 40%. This rum is one of Engenhos do Nortes continuous brands. I paid £40 for a 70cl bottle. Other than Oak Casks I am unsure as to what barrels this was aged in – I suspect ex-Madeira but could be completely wrong. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cachaca Boa Luz Serie Ouro

Cachaca Boa Luz Serie Ouro Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCachaca Boa Luz Serie Ouro. This cachaça hails from the smallest state in Brasil Sergibe. Which may explain why it is the first cachaça from that state that I have tried!

Boa Luz Serie Ouro is produced at the Jardim das Laranjeiras (The Orange Garden) distillery. As well  as Boa Luz they also produce a range of cachaça called Xingo. Despite having their own quite modern looking website there wasn’t a great deal of information on the cachaca’s. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
