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.

Diplomatico Seleccion De Familia

Diplomatico Seleccion De Familia rum review by the fat rum pirateDiplomatico Seleccion De Familia. At one time Diplomatico was perhaps second only to Ron Zacapa in terms of “Premium” rum. For many, rums such as Ron Zacapa, Diplomatico, El Dorado and Bacardi are still seen as the very pinnacle of rum production.

Lets be honest in certain Rum Circles, the likes of A.H Riise and Don Papa are heralded as King of the Rums. The “outing” of these rums in terms of additives has made people think twice about what they are paying for. Unfortunately the sad reality still remains. Pretty bottles, promotional gimmicks and sweetened, easy going rum still sell by the truckload. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

That Boutique-y Rum Company Greensand Ridge Batch 1

That Boutique-y Rum Company Greensand Ridge Batch 1 Rum review by the fat rum pirateThat Boutique-y Rum Company Greensand Ridge Batch 1. Regular readers of the site should be familiar with The Boutique-y Rum Company by now. I have reviewed a number of their offerings over the past couple of years since the company was formed.

This offering from Greensand Ridge is part of the recently released “Home Nations Series”. Which celebrated the growing number of rums now being produced in the UK. It also focused on some whisky as well but we’re not interested in that. Not today anyway. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Jung & Wulff Luxury Rums No 3 Barbados

Jung & Wulff Luxury Rums No 3 Barbados rum review by the fat rum pirateJung & Wulff Luxury Rums No 3 Barbados. As the title of this review might suggest this is the third rum I have reviewed in the Jung & Wulff series from American powerhouses Sazerac.

I’ve covered the story around Jung & Wulff in previous reviews. So if you haven’t read the reviews prior this one (which of course you will have) please check them out. I don’t like repeating myself in my reviews. I’m sure I’ll find something else to prattle on about. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cockspur XO Master’s Select

Cockspur XO Master's Select Rum review by the fat rum pirateCockspur XO Master’s Select. Up until a couple of years ago, you would have been lucky to find a range of Cockspur branded rum in the UK. Aside from the gold Cockspur Fine Rum. Which was available quite readily in a couple of major supermarkets.

Before this the VSOR and/or 12 was quite readily available but this dried up considerably over the past 5 or so years. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Jung and Wulff Luxury Rums No 1 Trinidad

Jung and Wulff Luxury Rums No 1 Trinidad Rum Review by the fat rum pirateJung and Wulff Luxury Rums No 1 Trinidad. I’ll be honest with you all, I can’t say I had heard of L.E Jung and Frederick Wulff before coming across this range of “Luxury Rums” from Sazerac.

However, they were responsible for importing the finest spirits into New Orleans and are past owners of The Sazerac House and Peychaud’s Bitters. This range of 3 rums have been released as a reminder of their pioneering work. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cadenhead’s Classic Rum Aged 17 Years

Cadenhead's Classic Rum Aged 17 Years Rum review by the fat rum pirateCadenhead’s Classic Rum Aged 17 Years. I reviewed Cadenhead’s Classic Rum way back in 2015, when I was just cutting my teeth in the review world. I liked it quite a lot and along with their 1842 cask became quite a fan of these blended rums from the Scottish Indie Bottler.

Now Cadenhead’s are not one of the new kids on the block when it comes to bottling fine spirits. Indeed they recently celebrated 175 Years in the business. They are proudly Scotland’s oldest Independent bottler. So they know a thing or two. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
