Tanduay Gold Asian Rum

Tanduay Gold Asian Rum review by the fat rum pirateTanduay Gold Asian Rum. Thanks to the Bleeding Heart Rum Company and more specifically their Don Papa “rums”, the Philippines has become more well known globally as a rum producing nation.

However, Tanduay is (and has been for a number of years) one of the worlds best selling rums. Like so many of the best selling rums – the sales are largely limited to certain more localised markets. Much like Old Monk and McDowells in India, Tanduay can account for a lot of sales in their domestic market and in other Asian markets such as Hong Kong and China.

Dead Reckoning Rum Barbados Barossa Valley Tawny Cask 9.5 Year

Dead Reckoning Rum Barbados Barossa Valley Tawny Cask 9.5 Year review by the fat rum pirateDead Reckoning Rum Barbados Barossa Valley Tawny Cask 9.5 Year. We are back to Australia and the Independent bottlers over at Dead Reckoning Rum. It’s safe to say that this is a release which is likely to make quite a lot of US and European based rum enthusiasts get a pang of jealousy.

It’s not often I can say I have seen a release come out of Australia where I have thought – I really want that. Thats not to say there isn’t good rum coming out of Australia but nothing has ever piqued my interest quite as much as this particular release. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

The Duppy Share XO

The Duppy Share XO rum review by the fat rum pirateThe Duppy Share XO. I’ve been waiting a while for this release. I first heard about it a few months back. It’s a rum which I think will appeal to a lot of consumers.

Presentation wise its certainly very interesting. Combining the classic Duppy Share stubby bottle with a new colour scheme (which proves a little tricky to photograph but is very striking nonetheless). Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Dràm Mòr Single Cask Rum Diamond Distillery Aged 10 Years rum review by the fat rum pirateDràm Mòr Single Cask Rum Diamond Distillery Aged 10 Years. I said when reviewing the Dràm Mòr Fiji bottling a couple of days ago that I would get their other Spring release reviewed as quickly as I could. So here we are…….

This rum hails from the Diamond Distillery, Guyana which is the home of Demerara Distillers Limited. Who produce the El Dorado range of rums and also sell a lot of bulk rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Dràm Mòr Single Cask Rum Fiji Distillery Aged 12 Years

Dràm Mòr Single Cask Rum Fiji Distillery Aged 12 Years rum review by the fat rum pirateDràm Mòr Single Cask Rum Fiji Distillery Aged 12 Years. I suppose saying this rum comes from “Fiji Distillery” isn’t really all that inaccurate. Whilst the actual distillery is perhaps better known, to those who actually know about Fijian rum, as South Pacific Distillery it is the only rum distillery on Fiji.

That Boutique-y Rum Company Haiti 17 Year Old

That Boutique-y Rum Company Haiti 17 Year OldThat Boutique-y Rum Company Haiti 17 Year Old. This is the third release of Haitian rum from That Boutique-y Rum Company. Over the past few years the Haitian spirit scene has seen a bit growth and it has headed in a direction which few would have perhaps envisaged 10 years ago.

Please note, I have stated the Haitian spirit scene rather than the “R(h)um” scene. This is because unlike some other commentators I won’t try and pigeon hole the (mostly) unaged cane spirit produced by so many small/micro distilleries as “rum”. For the very simple reason that those producing the spirit do not refer to it as rum. They call it “Clairin” (with variations on the spelling) so like “Cachaca” I will stick to calling it as it is. Rather than what might suit me or the western world. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

J Gow Wild Yeast Series NMO 2020

J Gow Wild Yeast Series NMO 2020 rum review by the fat rum pirateJ Gow Wild Yeast Series NMO 2020. We are back in bonny Scotland, well more accurately the Orkney Islands and the small island of Lamb Holm. Which is where Collin Van Schayk has decided to set up a rum distillery.

This may seem a very odd decision but Collin’s father Emile owns the award winning Orkney Wine Company so a career in the “booze” industry was perhaps his destiny. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
