The Rum Advent Calendar - Drinks by the Dram by the fat rum pirateThe Rum Advent Calendar – Drinks by the Dram. This particular article is more of an overview, rather than a review.

S.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Brazil 2013/2017

S.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Brazil 2013/2017 rum cachaca review by the fat rum pirateS.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Brazil 2013/2017. 1423 have released a few “Brazilian Rums” over the past few years – they even blended one with a Barbados rum.

Now technically the juice in this bottle is Cachaca. However due to a lack of understanding regarding Cachaca’s independent bottlers and even brands such as Ben Bom label their products “Brazilian Rum”. I guess this helps appeal and not alienate certain consumers who do not understand the spirit. Fair enough I say. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Levy Lane Rum Co. Tamosi

Levy Lane Rum Co. Tamosi rum review by the fat rum pirateLevy Lane Rum Co.Tamosi. Tamosi “The Ancient One, the creater of all, brought into being such a great tree that none like it has ever been seen since” I’m a bit lost to be honest………

Tamosi is named for the Carib creator Tamosi Kabotano. Which translates as “Ancient one of the skyland”. It is said he created the earth and everything upon it. The Carib people, who believed themselves also to have come from the skyland, found Tamosi (Tah-moh-see) to be an absent creator, often leaving their pleas for help unanswered. Tamosi has never been seen so is not depicted as a person. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

E.S.A. Field Barbados White Rum

E.S.A. Field White Rum Review by the fat rum pirateE.S.A. Field Barbados White Rum. If you have not visited Barbados, you may not be familiar with this brand. You will however be familiar with the producer.

In 1906 the Rum Duty Act was introduced. It meant that distilleries could not sell their rum in quantities of less than 10 gallons. I don’t know the exact logic behind this. This meant that many of the general traders in Bridgetown became bottlers. Taking “bulk rum” from the various distilleries and blending it to their own preferences. Sometimes sadly with the use of a few additives other than rum and water. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Foursquare Rum Distillery Détente

Foursquare Rum Distillery Détente by the fat rum pirateFoursquare Rum Distillery Détente. As you will all know Détente is French and is used to refer to a relaxation of strained relations, through verbal communication. Well that’s what Wikipedia says anyway………

It is often used when referencing relationships between the USSR and the West during the Cold War. Bearing in mind the current relations between certain rum producers, this choice of name does seem a little odd. Whether this indicates a sign of a “relaxing” of hostilities, I am not so sure. I suspect it might not be! Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
