As mentioned previously Cane Island are a new Independent bottler – at the moment their rums are only available from shops in Amsterdam.  Luckily most of these stores deliver to the UK so I didn’t miss out on trying these rums.

Ron Barceló Imperial

Ron Barcelo Imperial rum Review by the fat rum pirateBarceló are on of the big three named rum producers of the Dominican Republic.  I say named because Oliver & Oliver another big Dominican rum player produce a variety of rums under various different guises.

In 1929 Spaniard Julián Barceló arrived in Santo Domingo and founded Barceló & Co. In 1974, Don Julián Barceló handed over the reins to his nephew Miguel Barceló and in 1980 Ron Barceló Imperial was born.

Ron Yacare Anejo

Ron Yacare Review by the fat rum pirateRon Yacare is an Anejo (aged) rum from the Dominican Republic.  It has been difficult to find any information regarding this rum, mainly due to this being predominantly for the Spanish speaking market.

Ron Yacare from the information on the bottle is distributed by Carrefour Supermarket group.  I assume it is available in their stores, which are found mostly in France and Spain.  From web searches they also produce a Honey based Ron Miel and they have a Viejo and Reserva Exclusiva expression as well.  I think that Yacare is more of a brand name and I do not think all of the rums in their range come from the Dominican Republic.

Brugal Anejo Superior Rum

Brugal Anejo Rum review by the fat rum pirateBrugal are one of the big three “B’s” in rum production on the Dominican Republic. (Barceló and Bermudez are the other two)  For those who do not know the Domician Republic is the politically divided island of Hispaniola.  The remaining part of the island is Haiti.

A couple of years ago Brugal began re-branding their slightly dated bottles.  This coincided (no doubt deliberately) as they began to expand into Europe.  Since the re-launch Brugal can now be seen in most style and cocktail bars in the UK.  More often than not it will be this rum and the XV which will be stocked.
