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.

Matusalem Gran Reserva 15 Year

Matusalem Gran Reserva Puerto Rico Cuba Rum ReviewRead other blogs etc and you’ll see a war of words over what this rum actually is.  Is it Cuban or is it Dominican? Should it be called a Cuban rum? Blah,blah,blah

In all honesty this is the pointless bickering which pisses me off and makes me quickly leave some rum blogs and forums.  I worry for people who some things are really so important in their lives.  I’ll still have my say on the subject but I certainly won’t be drawn into an argument with regard my opinion.
