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.

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

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

Ron Izalco Rum Cask Strength Aged 15 Years

Ron Izalco Rum Cask Strength Aged 15 Years review by the fat rum pirateRon Izalco Rum Cask Strength Aged 15 Years. This brand is produced by California based Phenomenal Spirts, which are headed up Karthik Sudhir. Not putting any pressure on yourself with name are you Karthik?

I actually met Karthik in September 2019 at a tasting of his rum at Trailer Happiness in London. It was a complete fluke really that I was down London for work purposes and was able to attend. Usually I miss out on such events being up here in the frozen north. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

S.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Panama 2006

S.B.S The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Panama 2006 Rum Review by the fat rum pirateS.B.S The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Panama 2006. I’ve not been seeking out rums from Panama lately. Personally, they aren’t the type of rum that excites me.

On the whole I haven’t really been bothering all that much with “ron” from Spanish-speaking countries. This is partly due to the fact they just don’t interest me but mostly because you never quite know what nonsense they have added to their “ron”. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
