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

Langs Banana Jamaican Rum

Langs Banana Jamaican Rum review by the fat rum pirateLangs Banana Jamaican Rum. It’s been a while since we’ve reviewed anything Spiced or Flavoured. Whilst I tend not to buy much Spiced/Flavoured, unless I fancy it will be very popular for a review, I do still find the odd sample or two of Spiced/Flavoured rum comes my way.

Langs Banana Jamiacan Rum is brought to us by Ian McLeod Distillers. More famous in the Scotch Whisky world for bringing Tamdhu, Glengoyne and Smokehead to the market they do dabble in rum. Indeed they produce two pretty popular “dark” rum expressions in Watson’s Demerara and Trawler Rum. 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

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

Ron Colon Salvadoreno Coffee Infused High Proof Rum

Ron Colon Salvadoreno Coffee Infused High Proof Rum review by the fat rum pirateRon Colon Salvadoreno Coffee Infused High Proof Rum. I’ve got to say if I was going to introduce a rum brand to the market, I probably wouldn’t call it “Colon”. The meaning in English doesn’t really work that well.

Having said that in the current climate the fact was the Spanish name of Christopher Columbus – Cristobar Colon probably doesn’t help either…..This rum, however is named after the “Colon” which was used as the El Salvadorian currency from 1892 till 2001. When it was replaced by the US dollar. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
