Coruba White Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCoruba White Rum.  They are a brand of rum with mixed origins.  Coruba Dark is popular and widely available in the US and New Zealand. Coruba are a Jamaican rum brand (the rum used is understood to come from Appleton Estate).

The brand itself also seems to have some Swiss roots.  It is for the US market owned by Campari.  Coruba have a number of young “mixing” style rums in their portfolio.  They have also branched out into the cheaper flavoured market. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Arnisser No7 Jamaica Rum Worthy Park 2010

Arnisser No7 Jamaica Rum Worthy Park Review by the Fat Rum PirateArnisser No7 Jamaica Rum is an independently bottled rum from Worthy Park Distillery.  Arnisser hails from Germany (I think) and they have their own website.

They have bottled a number of rums as well as their own Gin and Brandy.  They bottle their rum in 200ml and 500ml bottles.  This 6 Year Old rum from Worthy Park was distilled in 2010.  Retail price for a 500ml bottle is 26 euros.  Which is very competitive.  I like the idea of the 200ml bottles as well.  That is a good amount of rum to try and the price is also very keen.

Habitation Velier Forsyths WP 2005

Habitation Velier Forsyths WP 2005 rum review by the fat rum pirate Worthy Park EstateHabitation Velier Forsyths WP 2005 is another intrigingly named bottling from Luca Gargano and Co. Releases under the Habitation Velier moniker are coming out thick and fast.  Already a 2006 WP is available to buy.  With that in mind I thought I best get a review of this out quick before it sells out completely.

Kill Devil Jamaica Long Pond 15 Year Old

Kill Devil Jamaica Long Pond Rum Review by the fat rum pirateHere we have another independent bottling by Kill Devil (Hunter Laing) of Jamaica Rum from the Long Pond Distillery.  Over the past year I have become more familiar with rums from the Long Pond distillery.

Rums such as Expressions by Old Man Rum Co. have an element of aged Pot Still rum from the Long Pond distillery and I also purchases a Duncan Taylor bottling from Long Pond shortly before Christmas 2016.  Which turned out to be one of the best rums I have ever tasted.

Habitation Velier Hampden 2010 HLCF

Habitation Velier Hampden 2010 HLCF Rum Review by the fat rum pirateHabitation Velier have bottled a Pure Single Rum from the Hampden Estate in Jamaica. In actual fact they’ve now actually bottled three different expressions from the Hampden Estate.  I’m a little behind the times I’m afraid.

Released in 2016 this particular release is now particularly difficult to find.  It comes in the increasingly familiar Habitation Velier presentation box.  Which shows a drawing of each still the rum was distilled on.  It is also chock a block with detailed information on what the rum actually is.  No fairy stories here just cold hard facts.

Appleton Estate Reserve Blend

Appleton Estate Reserve Blend Rum Review by the fat rum pirateWhen Appleton Estate re-branded their rums in 2015 much was made of the move.  The usual conspiracists hailed the blends must have all changed and been down graded.

To be honest this is a familiar and very boring critique which is immediately “asked” everytime a producer decides to re-brand.  I found it particularly sad that a brand such as Appleton Estate would also be treat with such suspicion. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
