The Duchess Trinidad Rum Aged 21 Years Caroni Distillery

The Duchess Trinidad Rum Aged 21 Years Caroni Distillery rum review by the fat rum pirateThe Duchess Trinidad Rum Aged 21 Years hails from the iconic and now defunct Caroni Distillery. Despite the length of time since the distillery closed – way back in 2002, we are still seeing casks of rum being released by Independent bottlers from the late 1990’s.

There have been a good number of 1997, 1998 and 1999 releases over the past few years. Fears that the Caroni stock will quickly “evaporate” seem a little wide of the mark. I think most rum lovers will be able to enjoy a glass or three of Caroni for some time yet. 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

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

World’s End Rum Navy 57

World's End Rum Navy 57 rum review by the fat rum pirateWorld’s End Rum Navy 57. I first came across the World’s End Rum brand back in 2016 at the London Rum Festival. It was the Friday night when new brands exhibit for the trade at what is called the Boutique Rum Festival.

I’d tried quite a few different Spiced Rums by the time I came to their stand. Though, to be fair they were mostly difficult to distinguish such was the amount of vanilla used in each blend. I wasn’t overly impressed. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Bounty Saint Lucia Rum Premium Dark

Bounty Saint Lucia Rum Premium Dark Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBounty Saint Lucia Rum Premium Dark. Not be confused with the Bounty Rum brand which comes out of Fiji. I reviewed an Overproof from Fiji Rum Company here. I also have previously reviewed the “original” Bounty Gold here.

I’d actually tried for a long time to get a taster of the Bounty Gold. I eventually tracked down a bottle – hence the review last year. No sooner had I got the rum I began hearing that a new range of Bounty rums was coming to the UK. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
