Dràm Mòr Single Cask Rum Uitvulgt Distillery Aged 24 Years Review by the fat rum pirateDràm Mòr Single Cask Rum Uitvulgt Distillery Aged 24 Years. We are back today with what I think is the second Guyanese rum I have tried from Dràm Mòr Group. This time we are stepping back in time and enjoying a rum from a now defunct distillery – Uitvlugt.

Whilst the Uitvlugt distillery has long been mothballed a couple of the stills housed there, are now at Diamond Distillery/Demerara Distillers Limited. This particular bottling is noted as having the marque MPMM. Which suggests heavily that this a rum produced on the Port Mourant Double Wooden Pot Still. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Foursquare LFT White Barbados Pure Single Rum review by the fat rum pirateFoursquare LFT White Barbados Pure Single Rum. Whilst it is fair to say, all releases from Foursquare Rum Distillery are very sought after this is perhaps one of the most anticipated releases of 2022.

It’s not out yet (I’m just lucky enough to have been sent a very generous sample) so I can’t advise on the bottle numbers or the price. It is going to be released as part of the Habitation Velier series of rums. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

1968 Portsmouth White Rum

1968 Portsmouth White Rum review by the fat rum pirate1968 Portsmouth White Rum. Over the past few years a number of Rum Producers have sprung up in the UK. I’ve focused quite a bit on some of the offerings from Scotland and its outer isles.

Today I am at the other end of the UK down in Sunny Hampshire at the Portsmouth Distillery. The distillery is situated in Fort Cumberland on the South Eastern corner of Portsea Island on the shingle spit known as Eastney Point. It was built to control the entrance to Langstone Harbour to the east, and to improve the defences of Portsmouth Dockyard to the west. It now houses the Portsmouth Distillery and visitor centre.

John Watling’s Single Barrel

John Watling's Single Barrel rum review by the fat rum pirateJohn Watling’s Single Barrel. The John Watling Distillery is based at the Buena Vista Estate in downtown Nassau on the Island of New Providence, which is part of the Bahamas. Despite being called a distillery the estate does not actually distill the rum on site.

Despite calling themselves a distillery, they are honest about the fact they import rum from other Caribbean islands/countries. Ageing, filtering and blending the rums under the guidance of their Master Blenders Guillermo Garcia-Lay and Pepin Argamasilla. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Jack Tar Alpha and Omega Triple Cask Enmore 1988-1990 rum review by the fat rum pirateJack Tar Alpha and Omega Triple Cask Enmore 1988-1990. For the first time I will be reviewing more than one bottling in a single review. However, I am not going down the route of many reviewers, who put several rum reviews into one article. Although this “batch” of rum comes in two different bottles – Alpha and Omega it is the same blend of 3 rums in each bottle. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
