Rum Fire Velvet Jamaican White Overproof Rum

Rum Fire Velvet Jamaican White Overproof Rum review by the fat rum pirateRum Fire Velvet Jamaican White Overproof Rum. There are a lot of words and phrases I have used over they years when reviewing White Overproof rum from Jamaica. Velvet is certainly not one I have ever thought to use before, if I am being honest.

Rum Fire Velvet is produced at Hampden Estate. There has been a bit of confusion over this bottling for the European market and the Rum Fire (minus the Velvet) bottling which is widely available in the US. This European edition of Rum Fire is presented in a stubby stylish bottle, with a modern stylised look. The US Rum Fire appears in a normal “bar bottle” and looks a lot less premium.

Captain Morgan Black Label Jamaica Rum 73%

Captain Morgan Black Label Jamaica Rum 73% review by the fat rum pirateCaptain Morgan Black Label Jamaica Rum 73%. A high proof offering of Captain Morgan’s “iconic” Black Label rum which was bottled for the German market. Crikey that sounds like a bit of auction spiel doesn’t it?

It probably is. I found myself on the auction sites to get some photos of this bottling. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Stolen Overproof Rum

S3

Stolen Overproof Rum review by the fat rum pirateStolen Overproof Rum. This is a rum which has been much spoken about on the other side of the pond. Much Like Doctor Bird it is an independent bottling of Jamaican rum, which the Yanks have been able to get their hands on ahead of their European counterparts. Which is pretty unusual in the grand scheme of things. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

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

Tilambic 151 Overproof Aged Rum

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.

Bounty Fiji Rum Premium Overproof Rum

Bounty Fiji Rum Premium Overproof Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBounty Fiji Rum Premium Overproof Rum. It might well be the case that we never see this rum for sale in Europe (or the US). It seems to say firmly in the Oceania area of the Southern Hemisphere.

So when I saw this on an Auction site I was quite determined to get it. I was pleasantly surprised to pick it up for £40. I’ve tried a few Independently bottled Fiji rums but never an official bottling. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
