Watson’s Trawler Rum

Watson's Trawler Rum review by the fat rum pirateWatson’s Trawler Rum is another dark navy style rum from “up north”.  Scotland has a real tradition when it comes to rum.  Many famous Independent bottlers such as obvious ones like Cadenhead’s and Duncan Taylor age their rums in Scotland.  Surprisingly for some, Italian bottlers such as Samaroli and Silver Seal also age their rums up there.

Habitation Velier Last Ward 2007

Habitation Velier Last Ward 2007 Rum review by the fat rum pirateHabitation Velier Last Ward 2007 is an intriguingly named rum in the popular series of Pure rums from Luca Gargano and co.  Last Ward 2007 represents the Ward family.  Who for over 100 years owned and ran the Mount Gay rum distillery in St Lucy, Barbados.

As with all Habitation Velier releases you get a lot of information on the bottle and the study card sleeve which houses the rum.  Presented in the now distinctive flask style opaque bottles this rum from the Mount Gay Rum Refinery is given a baby blue colour scheme.  Velier usually give individual distilleries/stills a colour scheme which they carry through for all releases.  This was most commonly used in their old Demerara offerings.

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
