The Duchess Beenleigh Artisan Distillery Australia 13 Years Old

The Duchess Beenleigh Artisan Distillery Australia 13 Years Old Rum Review by the fat rum pirateThe Duchess Beenleigh Artisan Distillery Australia 13 Years Old. It’s good to see independent bottlers releasing rums from distilleries/locations that have perhaps not had the attention from Independent brokers they perhaps deserve.

It’s good to see producers such as the Netherlands The Duchess reaching out and trying different rums. Rather than just going with the tried and tested Shelf Friendly Unit Shifters from the likes of Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad (Caroni). Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Merser & Co. Rum Merchants Double Barrel

Merser & Co. Rum Merchants Double Barrel Rum Review by the fat rum pirateMerser & Co. Rum Merchants Double Barrel. Blended rum has long been well established at the lower end of the rum market. Most supermarkets have their own blends and many “cheaper” brands are based around blends of Caribbean rum. In recent times many blends have changed from multi island blends to single island blends.

Cachaca Prosa Mineira Tradicional

Cachaca Prosa Mineira Tradicional Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCachaca Prosa Mineira Tradicional. As I enter the website for Prosa Mineira I am informed that it is “The most awarded from Minas Gerais”. Now Minas Gerais is widely regarded as the “birthplace” of cachaca. For many it is the best region of Brasil to find cachaca.

So its quite a statement to make. Or is it? Is a brand really recognised by the number of awards it wins. I know of one reasonably well known rum brand that proclaims itself as the “Most Awarded Rum Brand in 2018/19”. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Watt Rum Jamaican Rum Distilled at Clarendon Estate Aged 16 Years

Watt Rum Jamaican Rum Clarendon Estate Aged 16 Years Rum Review by the fat rum pirateWatt Rum Jamaican Rum Distilled at Clarendon Estate Aged 16 Years. A new independent bottler of rum is on the scene.

They seem to hail in the main either from Scotland or Italy (in most instances the rum bottled by Italians is aged in Scotland/England). This time we have a new bottler but not an entirely new face. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

The Colours of Rum Guyana 1999

The Colours of Rum Guyana 1999 rum review by the fat rum pirateThe Colours of Rum Guyana 1999. It’s likely you will become quite familiar with this new independent bottler from Poland over the coming weeks. I have no fewer than 15 expressions (12 of which are from Barbados’ Foursquare Distillery) of their line up to review. Lucky me indeed!

As is, in the name The Colours of Rum Guyana 1999 comes housed in a green and yellow carboard sleeve. Contained within is an opaque “Velier style” bottle with a chunky cork stopper. The label is green with a yellow typeface being used. The traditional colours of the Guyanese flag are red, green and yellow. It seems that Weath Solutions (the group behind The Colours of Rum) have opted for only two colours per release. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Ron Colon Salvadoreno High Proof Rum

Ron Colon Salvadoreno High Proof Rum review by the fat rum pirate Ron Colon Salvadoreno High Proof Rum. I have already reviewed the Ron Colon Salavadoreno Coffee Infused High Proof Rum. So today we are dropping the coffee and seeing how the rum stands up on its own.

As noted in the previous review I had though that this was a rum from El Salvador. Which had been distilled on a multi column still at the Cihuatan Distillery. Now to some degree it is but rather strangely it also contains Jamaican rum. Now bearing in mind the “pull” of El Salvadorian rum – which is relatively unknown and unheralded. Jamaica is for many the birth place of rum and Jamaican rum is sought out by most if not all Rum Enthusiasts. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

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.

For many years Carlos had been producing cachaca on a very small scale and gifting it to friends and family. The cachaca was of such a quality that they would often ask when they would receive another bottle of “Cachaca do Ministro”. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
