Velier Skeldon 1973 Full Proof Old Demerara Rum

Velier Skeldon 1973 Full Proof Old Demerara Rum by the fat rum pirateVelier Skeldon 1973 Full Proof Old Demerara Rum. One of the oldest rums, both in terms of when it was distilled and the length of time it was aged, I have reviewed so far. This is also one of  the rarest. It was one of the earlier Velier bottlings originally released back in 2005. Long before I had become serious about rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Berry Bros & Rudd 26 Year Old Uitvlugt Rum Exclusive to the Whisky Barrel

Berry Bros & Rudd 26 Year Old Uitvlugt Rum Exclusive to the Whisky Barrel review by the fat rum pirateBerry Bros & Rudd 26 Year Old Uitvlugt Rum Exclusive to the Whisky Barrel. Another collaboration, between one of London’s finest independent bottlers and one of Scotland’s finest rum and whisky retailers.

This time have a departure from Hampden Estate as we set sail for Guyana. The rum in question is a 26 Year Old rum which was distilled back in 1991 at the old Uitvlugt distillery, on their famous Port Mourant Still. As I understand the distillery closed circa 2000 and the stills were moved to the Diamond Distillery/Demerara Distillers Limited. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Pusser’s 15 Year Old Rum 2018 Re-Blend

Pusser's 15 Year Old 2018 Re Blend rum review by the fat rum piratePusser’s 15 Year Old Rum has been around for some time. (At least 15 years I can hear someone saying……) I first reviewed it a few years ago. I do intend to re-review some of the rums I have covered going forward. To be honest, Pusser’s 15 Year Old was one that would have had that treatment bestowed upon it anyway – miniatures of the rum are readily available. Which makes it easier on the wallet.

Dos Maderas 5+5 PX

Dos Maderas 5+5 PX Rum Review by the fat rum Dos Maderas 5+5 PX. Dos Maderas are a rum producer from Spain. The rum is blended at one of the biggest wineries in Europe, the Jerez de la Frontera. Which owned by Williams and Humbert who are more famous for producing Sherry and “Brandy de Jerez”.

The title relates to the ageing process undertaken by the rum. It is transported to Spain after the rum has been aged for 5 years in Guyana and Barbados. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Lamb’s Demerara Navy Rum – Bottled 1970’s

Lamb's Demerara Navy rum 70's bottling Rum review by the fat rum pirate Lamb’s Demerara Navy Rum. I don’t know exactly when this was bottled. Research has shown that this style of bottle was available in the 1970’s (and before). The UK largely stopped using their own “proof” calculation in 1980 and began showing the ABV rather than the proof. Whilst this is noted as 70 proof on the bottle, it’s the old “British” style proofing so it translates to 40% ABV. The same ABV Lamb’s Navy Rum is today. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Wood’s Old Navy Rum

Wood's Old Navy Rum Review by the fat rum pirateWood’s Old Navy Rum. Wood’s is a Navy rum brand which is quite a staple in UK bars and Working Mens Clubs. It’s not quite as common as Lamb’s – partly due to its ABV, but it is probably the second best-selling Navy rum in the UK.

You will probably find a number of  “old timers” proclaiming the joys of Rum and Pep (Peppermint cordial) or Rum and Black (Blackcurrant cordial) they will likely know all about Woods Navy Rum or Wood’s 100. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
