Cachaca Doministro Prata

Cachaca Doministro Prata Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCachaca Doministro Prata. When Carlos Atia retired from his position as “Minister of the Federal Court of Accounts” in 1998, he already had an idea of how he would occupy himself in retirement.

I’ve also reviewed two of Levy Lane Rum Co’s more “regular” (ie not Single Cask) releases. Overall, I’ve been quite impressed with both, so I’m looking forward to this review. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
