The Legendary Alnwick Rum

The Legendary Alnwick Rum Review by the fat rum pirateThe Legendary Alnwick Rum. The Spirit of Northumberland. I reviewed this just over three years ago. At the time it seems I wasn’t all that impressed. I re-visited The Legendary Alnwick Rum because its very easy to get ahold of up here in the North East.
