This is the final rum in the “Flower” series featuring the artwork of Hans Dillesse, a Dutch artist. The Duchess are an independent bottler from the Netherlands, who began bottling rums in 2018.

The brand are gaining quite a following and this is their latest Single Cask release. If you are in the UK then their rums can be found here.

Ron del Barrilito 3 Star

Ron del Barrilito 3 Star Rum Review by the fat rum pirateRon del Barrilito 3 star. This is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and controversial “rums” in the rum world.

Unlike the Port Cask rum this is a vintage from 2013 – like the Oloroso and Marsala casks that preceded it. The price of this is reflected, as it cheaper than the 2008 Port Cask release. I also have the Sherry Cask release to review. The Virgin Oak edition I tried at London Rumfest in October has yet to surface in retail…….. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
