Tijuca Blended Brazilian Rum

Tijuca Brazilian Blended Rum review by the fat rum pirateTijuca Blended Brazilian Rum. Production of Sugar Cane Spirits in Brasil is a huge business. Many people in the rest of the world consider Cachaca, the native Brasilian Sugar Cane Spirit a bit of a niche product. In Brasil, where it is produced it has an absolutely huge foothold in the domestic market. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Distillerie de Paris Rhum Galabe 97

Distillere de Paris Rhum Galabe 97 Rhum Rum Review by the fat rum pirateDistillerie de Paris Rhum Galabe 97. This is the first distillery to open in Paris for over 100 years. The distillery is ran by the Julhes Brothers, Sebastien and Nicolas. The distillery produces Gin, Vodka and this Rhum Galabe which I am reviewing for you today.

Rhum Galabe is not some fancy brand name. Galabe is actually a traditional form of pressed sugar cane juice, which is produced on the Reunion Island. The resulting solid product is often eaten as candy there. It is the product that is used to produce this rhum. I am not 100% how this qualifies 100% as a rhum but it is for sale as a rhum/rum so I will review it as such. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

FAIR 10 Year Old Rum

FAIR 10 Year Old Rum Review by the fat rum pirateFAIR Spirits are the first line of socially responsible spirits, so the tagline on their website goes.

Legend goes that Bardinet worked on taming the firewater, which arrived on French shores with various blending and ageing techniques until he was producing something comparable to the Rhum Negrita which is now commonly available across mainland Europe.  In particular France and Spain.

La Mauny V.O. Rhum Vieux Agricole

La Mauny VO Rum Review Agricole RhumAhhh the French you could almost hate the entire nation for Michel Platini and his Anglophilic tendencies alone.  So the French being the French they couldn’t make r(h)um the English way they had to do it their way.

And so was born Rhum Agricole (Agricultural Rum) a more expensive way of making rum.  Agricole rum is made from fresh pressed sugar cane juice rather than molasses.  Due to the price of the various rhum agricole’s on offer I was expecting something quite spectacular.  However, from looking online it seemed quite overlooked and not a lot if it seemed to be getting on any notable award lists.
