Kill Devil Jamaica Long Pond 15 Year Old

Kill Devil Jamaica Long Pond Rum Review by the fat rum pirateHere we have another independent bottling by Kill Devil (Hunter Laing) of Jamaica Rum from the Long Pond Distillery.  Over the past year I have become more familiar with rums from the Long Pond distillery.

Rums such as Expressions by Old Man Rum Co. have an element of aged Pot Still rum from the Long Pond distillery and I also purchases a Duncan Taylor bottling from Long Pond shortly before Christmas 2016.  Which turned out to be one of the best rums I have ever tasted.

St Abbs Captain’s Table XO

St Abbs Captains Table XO Rum review by the fat rum pirateSt Abbs Captain’s Table XO comes from newcomers Black Mountain Spirits.  They have three rums in the St Abbs range.  St Abbs is the brain child of entrepeneur David Owens.  David has a recent history in the rum world.  He was involved in Takamaka (formerly Takamaka Bay) rum which hailed from the Seychelles.

Bologne Black Cane (2016)

Bologne Black Cane Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBologne Black Cane is a relatively new white rhum agricole from established producer Rhum Bologne. Hailing from the island of Guadeloupe, Rhum Bologne are perhaps best known for the popularity of their rhum blanc.

This is produced in various ABV’s and some is even available by the bag in box method in many French supermarkets.  Have I ever mentioned the variety of white agricole rhum available in French supermarkets at crazy prices?  Wow! Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Blackadder Raw Cask Barbados Foursquare Rum 11 Years Old

Blackadder Raw Cask Rum Foursquare Barbados aged 11 Years Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBlackadder Raw Cask Barbados Foursquare rum.  Blackadder’s Raw Cask rum selection are a number of rums which are “raw” and straight from the cask.  No colouring, no additives and no filtration, so they look a little cloudy and raw.

Sourcing Blackadder rum has proved difficult. I ended up getting this bottling from Poland, of all places.  This is particularly frustrating as most of Blackadder’s range is aged in the UK. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Elements Eight Fine Aged Platinum

Elements Eight Platinum rum review by the fat rum pirateElements Eight Fine Aged Platinum rum hails from the island of St Lucia.  Elements Eight is the brainchild of Carl Stephenson (whose past employers include Wray and Nephew).  Their rums have won numerous awards since they were launched back in 2006.

Platinum is a premium white rum.  Unlike many white rums it is actually an aged rum.  Aged up to 4 years in ex-Buffalo Trace Bourbon barrels.  It is then gently filtered to remove any colour. Leaving a very clean, crisp spirit behind.  Unlike many rums bottled by UK companies this has been entirely tropically aged. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Ultimatum Rum Fiji Secret Distillery Aged 12 Years

Ultimatum Fiji Secret Distillery rum review by the fat rum pirateUltimatum Rum Fiji Secret Distillery is not quite as mysterious as it sounds. There is currently only one working commercial distillery on Fiji. So its not really much of a secret.

Rums from Fiji have been popping up all over the place over the past year. Many independent bottlers have been picking up and releasing Fijian rums. The distillery is actually the South Pacific Rum distillery. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Skotlander Handcrafted Rum V 1,400 SØMIL

Skotlander Handcrafted Rum V 1,400 SØMILSkotlander Handcrafted Rum V 1,400 SØMIL is perhaps the most bizarrely named rum I have reviewed so far.  The strange name owes mostly to the way it has been aged.  When translated into English and the story is told it does make a lot more sense.  Even if the way the rum has been aged is a little baffling…….
