Perhaps the best known rum brand from Panama is Ron Abuelo.  Until recently you could argue that one of Don Pancho’s many blends – Ron de Jeremy Reserva was better known/ more infamous.  That rum is no longer from Panama – it is now a Caribbean blend. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Elements Eight – Fine Aged Vendome

Elements Eight Vendome Gold Rum Review by the fat rum pirateElements Eight Rum Company was founded back in 2006.  We recently conducted an interview with Carl Stephenson the owner of Elements Eight.  As a result of this we have been able to gain a lot of insight and information on Elements Eights rums.
