J Gow Culverin Rum Review by the fat rum pirateJ Gow Culverin. Regular readers of this website should already beware of the J Gow Rum Distillery from Lamb Holm in the Orkney Islands, Scotland.

I’ve not reviewed any of their rums for a while. In all honesty I’ve not reviewed any rums for a while. Which is something I am looking to correct now I am finding a little more time to get some reviews out. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

That Boutique-y Rum Company Foursquare Distillery Barbados Aged 12 Years Batch 7 rum review by the fat rum pirateThat Boutique-y Rum Company Foursquare Distillery Barbados Aged 12 Years Batch 7. If I ever get around to releasing some rum, please remind if only for the sanity of my fellow bloggers not to call it The Fat Rum Pirate Rum Company. I would also be worried about getting sued for causing repetitive strain injury. TFRPRC….hmmmm doesn’t really flow of the tongue. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Black Ven Distillery Dark Rum

Black Ven Distillery Dark Rum review by the fat rum pirateBlack Ven Distillery Dark Rum. There has been quite an explosion of rum production in the UK over the past 5 or so years. Many of these rum “producers” are doing little other than “spicing” an existing imported Caribbean rum base and then proclaiming it as British, English or Scottish or even Welsh “rum”.

Dead Reckoning Australia 9 Year Bourbon Cask

Dead Reckoning Australia 9 Year Bourbon Cask Rum review by the fat rum pirateDead Reckoning Australia 9 Year Bourbon Cask. We have become quite familiar with the Dead Reckoning line up of rums of the past couple of years. For those who are unacquainted with the bottler they are one of the first Australian Independent bottlers. Certainly one of the first to be exporting to the lucrative EU and US markets.

Ron Bengalo Rum from Barbados

Ron Bengalo Rum from Barbados review by the fat rum pirateRon Bengalo Rum from Barbados. In todays climate most people out there will be hunting for the odd rum bargain. Especially, when it comes to something to use as a casual weekend mixer.

Most supermarket own label Dark and White rum tends to be unaged rum from Trinidad. It’s cheap and nearly every supermarket stocks, it along with a Spiced Rum or a “Spirit Drink”. At a pinch its a go to for a cheap mixer to get a little merry with. You just have to know you’re not getting a great deal for your £10-£15 Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Havana Club 11 Year Old Small Batch Exclusive to The Whisky Exchange

Havana Club 11 Year Old Small Batch Exclusive to The Whisky Exchange rum review by the fat rum pirateHavana Club 11 Year Old Small Batch Exclusive to The Whisky Exchange. This is a world first. Havana Club, the iconic Cuban distillers have never previously released a bespoke expression for a single retailer.

Whilst Havana Club might not be everyone’s cup of tea (or glass of rum) and a lot of their “mystery” is due to not being easily available to one of the worlds biggest spirit markets – the US of A.  They are without doubt one of the better producers of light Cuban style rum. Not that really says a great deal if we are being entirely honest. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

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
