Dead Reckoning Rum Mutiny South Pacific

Dead Reckoning Rum Mutiny South Pacific Rum Review by the fat rum pirateDead Reckoning Rum Mutiny South Pacific. Another bottling from new Independent bottlers Dead Reckoning. If you aren’t familiar with the brand it is likely because you aren’t living in Australia. Unlike many Independent bottlers Dead Reckoning aren’t based in Europe (or even the US which has seen more Indie bottlers sprout up lately). Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Black Tot Rum Last Consignment British Royal Naval Rum

Black Tot Last Consignment British Royal Naval Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBlack Tot Rum Last Consignment British Royal Naval Rum. This is the fourth release from Elixir Distillers in their “Black Tot” series that I have reviewed. It was, however the first one they released. Pretty much as long as I started to get quite serious about rum I’ve known about this mythical (and expensive) bottling. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Jamaican Rum JHK Thompson Bros

Jamaican Rum JHK Thompson Bros rum review by the fat rum pirateJamaican Rum JHK Thompson Bros. Independent Whisky Bottlers have a long tradition of putting out some rather decent rum over the years. In fact quite a few of the most respected “Independent Bottlers” of rum are primarily Whisky bottlers.

Names such as Silver Seal, Cadenhead’s and Duncan Taylor are well known and well established. However, over the past few years as more Whisky enthusiasts are beginning to discover rum – more and more “Whisky” bottlers are turning to rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Rum & Cane Merchants Mauritius XO Single Cask Rum

Rum & Cane Merchants Mauritius XO Single Cask Rum Review by the fat rum pirateRum & Cane Merchants Mauritius XO Single Cask. I’ve covered a bottling from Rum & Cane Merchants previously. If memory serves me correctly that was an offering from Worthy Park Distillery in Jamaica.

The brand seem to cross over between being called West Indies Rum & Cane Merchants and just Rum & Cane Merchants. I fancy with all the cultural appropriation backlash, they may be looking to phase out the West Indies part in time. The brand is based in London but the parent group Crucial Drinks are based in Scotland. So not very West Indian in terms of location certainly. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Ron Santiago de Cuba Ron Extra Anejo 11 Anos

Ron Santiago de Cuba Ron Extra Anejo 11 Anos rum review by the fat rum pirateRon Santiago de Cuba Ron Extra Anejo 11 Anos. I use the exact naming convention adopted on the bottles I review, so apologies for the extra brevity of this reviews title. I guess much like me, these Cuban rum producers have a tendency to waffle…..

For those of you who are unaware and I guess this is where my review is designed to assist, Ron Santiago de Cuba (formerly just Santiago de Cuba) has begun working with global booze conglomerate Diageo. This has led to a re-brand and increased availability here in the UK and Europe. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Worthy Park 109 Jamaica Rum

Worthy Park 109 Jamaica Rum Review by the fat rum pirateWorthy Park 109 Jamaica Rum. Originally this was due to be released as Worthy Park Gunpowder Proof. Unfortunately, a certain brand of Navy rum with a fondness for litigation expressed it’s legal objections to such a name and Worthy Park opted to call the rum simply 109 instead.

For those not familiar with higher proof rums. 109 denotes the “proof”. Which is double the Alcohol by Volume (ABV) measurement, more popularly used here in the UK. In the US they tend to give both the proof and the ABV, whereas in the UK and Europe we tend to just opt for the ABV. So in case you can’t do the maths Worthy Park 109 Jamaica Rum is 54.5% ABV. Simples. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
