Foursquare Rum Distillery Triptych

Foursquare Rum Distillery Triptych Rum Review by the fat rum piratFoursquare Rum Distillery Triptych.  Another collaboration between Velier and Foursquare.  Definitely not an independent bottling.  Don’t let Richard hear you saying otherwise!

Released in the guise of a “regular” Velier bottling rather than the Habitation Velier label, this is a follow up if you like to last years Foursquare 2006. 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.

Gargano Rum Classification – Can it Change the Rum World?

Gargano Rum Classification Article by the fat rum pirate Hampden StillIntroduction

I’ve been asked a few times recently why I’m not supporting the Gargano Rum Classification.  By support, I assume people are wondering why I haven’t featured the classification on the site? Or why I haven’t adopted it in my reviews?

Fact is, I have for a long time tried whenever possible to find out how the rum in my bottle has been produced.  Which is exactly what the Gargano Rum Classification involves. Though I haven’t “come out” in favour quite as enthusiastically or as quickly as some, the more information disclosed the better in my book. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

A.H Riise Royal Danish Navy Rum

A.H Riise A.H Riise Royal Danish Navy Rum review by the fat rum pirateRoyal Danish Navy Rum is another take on Navy Rum.  This time though the focus is on the Royal Danish Navy.  I would be lying if I said I was particularly acquainted with the exploits of the Danish Navy.

A.H Riise was no doubt a high ranking figure in the Danish Navy or some almightly war hero.  No he as was actually a pharmacist.  His links to rum seem to be that he sold and imported rum from the West Indies to Denmark. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

BLACK TOT 40 Year Old Demerara Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBlack Tot 40 Year Old Demerara Rum is the latest release from independent bottlers Elixir Distillers.  The rum has been released to pay homage to the British Royal Navy.  Unlike the original Black Tot release which was released in 2011 this is not a rum which was available to the Royal British Navy.

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.
