Rivers Royale Grenadian Rum 69%

Rivers Royale Grenadian Rum 69% Rum review by the fat rum pirateRivers Royale Grenadian Rum. Rivers is a historic brand of Overproof rum from the Caribbean Island of Grenada. It is not a Grenadine flavoured rum. Definitely not.

It is a rum a lot of Rum Enthusiasts will hear about. It has taken me quite a long time to try this. I finally found a store in the UK/Europe that had it in stock. Many, will hear about this rum but nowhere near as many will ever try Rivers Royale Grenadian Rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

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

Westerhall Plantation Rum

Westerhall Plantation Rum Review by the fat rum pirateWesterhall Estate was once a bustling hive of sugar and rum production on the island of Grenada.  Nowadays the Estate offers a visitors centre to remind visitors of the rum and sugar production of the past.

Rum is still produced under the Westerhall Estate brand.  However, it is no longer rum made from native sugar cane, not is it made from rum distilled on the island.  Westerhall’s rums are made from rum imported from Trinidad, bottled and blended on the island.

Westerhall Estate White Jack

White Jack Westerhall rum review by the fat rum pirateWhite Jack is a rum produced by Westerhall Estate.  It is named White Jack as it is actually another celebrity tie in.  None other than Jack White of The White Stripes commissioned this White Overproof rum.

Okay that’s a lie but it’s safe to say that when I tried to “Google” some information on White Jack, I got far more results about the Top Hat and Trilby wearing front man of the American Lo-Fi Garage Rock duo than I did about White Jack! Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Westerhall Estate Jack Iron

Jack Iron Rum Review by the fat rum pirateWesterhall Estate Jack Iron Rum is a lightly coloured overproof rum from Grenada.

Distillation of rum at Westerhall Estate no longer takes place.  Instead rum is imported from the Angostura Distillery in Trinidad.  It is then blended and bottled at what remains of the Westerhall Estate.

The Estate acts more as a bottling plant and visitor centre now.  It is sad that so many distilleries no longer produce their own rums but unfortunately like so many smaller distillers – competing with the big hitters is proving increasingly difficult. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Clarkes Court Old Grog Rum

OLD GROG RUM CLARKE'S COURT REVIEW GRENADAThe name “Old Grog” dates back from the early days when the finest of Grenada’s Rum was shipped to his Majesty George III England.  In order to identify the King’s Rum, the casks were marked G.R.O.G. which is the abbreviation for Georgius Rex Old Grenada. Or so the story on the bottle goes.  Whether this is true or not is another matter.  It does sound feasible though.  The term “grog” is usually used to describe a mix of rum, water and limes which was given to sailor’s to prevent them getting too intoxicated drinking solely rum.
