Angostura 5 Year Old Rum

imageDespite the presence of Angostura in the rum and bitters market, it doesn’t seem that their younger rums have caught the imagination.

At least amongst the Rum Reviewing community as I have been unable to find any reviews of this 5 year old rum and only a couple for its older brother the 7 year old.  When it comes to Angostura it seems that life for many begins at 1919 and 1824. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Westerhall Estate Jack Iron

Jack Iron Rum Review by the fat rum pirateWesterhall Estate Jack Iron Rum is a lightly coloured overproof rum from Grenada.

Distillation of rum at Westerhall Estate no longer takes place.  Instead rum is imported from the Angostura Distillery in Trinidad.  It is then blended and bottled at what remains of the Westerhall Estate.

Caroni Trinidad rum review the fat rum pirate VelierDistilled in 2000 from the last Trinidad molasses and bottled in 2012.  This rum from the famous Caroni Distillery has been bottled by Italian company Velier.

As my rum journey has progressed (I hope with my assistance some of you have a smoother journey than me!) I have read a great deal about the now defunct Caroni Distillery.  Caroni is famous for “Heavy Rum” and rums from the distillery can now fetch quite mind boggling prices.  I have been fortunate enough to pick up both this and a 16-year-old Caroni (The Ancient Mariner) for under £50 per bottle.
