The Equiano Rum Co Afro-Caribbean Rum

The Equiano Rum Co. Afro-Caribbean Rum Review by the fat rum pirateThe Equiano Rum Co Afro-Caribbean Rum. I first came across this rum at the Boutique Rumfest in London. For those not familiar with London Rumfest, on a Friday afternoon they open up what they call the Boutique Rumfest.

This Rumfest is open to the trade and journalists, bloggers etc. It allows new brands to showcase and promote their rums to an audience in a less hectic manner than is usually the case on Saturday and Sunday. It’s really an ideal time to make contacts and speak with people who may be able to help smaller brands. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Tilambic 151 Overproof Aged Rum review by the fat rum pirateTilambic 151 Overpoof Aged Rum. The world of Overproof rum is quite an interesting one. Bottlers producing rum, which you are then advised not to take neat, as it may be hazardous to your health.

The most famous examples of Overproof 151 (75.5% ABV) rum are Bacardi 151 and Lemon Hart Demerara. Whilst Bacardi 151 seems to be most common in American frathouses – Lemon Hart has built up quite a following amongst Tiki bartenders who use the rum sparingly, as a float in drinks such as Zombies.

They are very proud of being a Single Estate Produce and they are equally clear on the fact they do not permit the use of additives in any of their rums. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Gold of Mauritius Rum Review by the fat rum pirateGold of Mauritius quite a grandiose title and one which certainly sets this rum up as one that really needs to impress!  Mauritian rum has come to our attention before we have reviewed two Penny Blue expressions from the Medine Distillery.
