Another independent release from Berrys’ Bros and Rudd. This time they have bottled a Latin style rum from Panama.
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.
Barceló are on of the big three named rum producers of the Dominican Republic. I say named because Oliver & Oliver another big Dominican rum player produce a variety of rums under various different guises.
In 1929 Spaniard Julián Barceló arrived in Santo Domingo and founded Barceló & Co. In 1974, Don Julián Barceló handed over the reins to his nephew Miguel Barceló and in 1980 Ron Barceló Imperial was born.
In the first part of this series we touched upon how rums are labelled. I used an example to show how confusing it can be to determine a Premium rum.
Marketing and packaging play a huge role in what the end consumer buys. No matter who you are, you will encounter and be influenced by marketing at some stage. Even if you think you aren’t.
Legendario’s Elxir de Cuba is perhaps the most confusing bottle of rum in the world. Which in itself meant I had to get a hold of this Cuban curiosity for a review.
I picked the Legendario up on a visit to Spain, I had been curious about their rums for some time. I was especially curious about this 7 Year Old rum.
Santa Teresa Linaje was released back in 2012. Whether it was a worldwide release or not I’m not entirely sure.
Santa Teresa are the oldest producers of rum in Venezuela. An independent family group employing over 400 people. Santa Teresa is renowned for its community investment, including the Alcatraz project, the Revenga municipal projects of Aragua State, location of the Agroindustrial tourist and sports complex at Hacienda Santa Teresa.
Elements 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.
Early in my own “Rum Journey” my wife bought me a bottle of Elements Eight Gold Rum. I actually reviewed it a couple of years ago for the site. As part of a re-branding Elements Eight have opted to rename their Gold Rum to something more distinctive and meaningful. So it has been re-named Vendome. I’m re-reviewing this as I’m curious to see if my opinion has changed much. I’m assured by Carl that the rum is the same now as it was then. I do know that my taste had changed slightly and my awareness has improved vastly since those days!
Rum Nation are an Italian Independent bottler headed up by Fabio Rossi. It was formed in 1999 and has the tagline Single Domaine Rum.
In keeping with many Independent bottlers Rum Nation do not give specific information on the distillery and or still. In most instances you just get the country of origin.
