Jack Tar La Lune Cosmic Series Distilled at Caroni 1997

Jack Tar La Lune Cosmic Series Distilled at Caroni 1997 rum review by the fat rum pirateJack Tar La Lune Cosmic Series Distilled at Caroni 1997. Alongside the mythical Velier Demerara bottlings and the more recent Foursquare Velier/ECS releases – Caroni has remained high on the agenda of many rum collectors and enthusiasts.

The fact that the distillery has been closed since the turn of the century, really hasn’t seem to have restricted the availability of the rum from Caroni. A lot of this has been bottled by the likes of Velier, Bristol Spirits and Cadenhead’s. Newer bottlers such as The Colours of Rum and Jack Tar are also increasingly getting in on the act.

The Colours of Rum Trinidad 1998

The Colours of Rum Trinidad 1998 rum review by the fat rum pirateThe Colours of Rum Trinidad 1998. Whilst the Independent Bottler of this rum may be fairly new, stocks of 1998 Caroni Rum have been circulating for a while. It’s probably one of the most released vintages, particularly over the past few years.

You’ll find that most of these Caroni 1998 bottlings will have been at least partially aged here in Europe rather than in Trinidad or the Tropics. Which is partly why such bottlings are able to be aged for so long. There are a number of things to consider when ageing spirits. However, whilst ageing and maturing rum is important, evaporation has to be considered. No point ageing barrels of rum for years and years to come back and find you’ve barely anything left…… Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Threeways Rum – First Release

Threeways Rum - First Release rum review by the fat rum pirateThreeways Rum – First Release. Who knows, maybe there will be three releases of this? Or three different rums released perhaps?

I’m just messing, the team behind this particular rum have given me a host of information on the rum and the ethos behind it.

The Duchess Ten Cane Distillery Trinidad Aged 11 Years

The Duchess Ten Cane Distillery Trinidad Aged 11 Years Rum Review by the fat rum pirateThe Duchess Ten Cane Distillery Trinidad Aged 11 Years. Yet another rum from Dutch Independent Bottler The Duchess this time from a Trinidad distillery that I didn’t even realise existed!

To be fair to me by the time I got into rum in the early part of the 2010’s Ten Cane was fading out. Production of any rum produced under the Ten Cane banner ceased in 2015. It was a short lived thing being introduced in 2005. I actually have some of the original Ten Cane rum to review. So I will save the Ten Cane “story” for that review. I should still have enough to talk about with this release from The Duchess. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

World’s End Rum Navy 57

World's End Rum Navy 57 rum review by the fat rum pirateWorld’s End Rum Navy 57. I first came across the World’s End Rum brand back in 2016 at the London Rum Festival. It was the Friday night when new brands exhibit for the trade at what is called the Boutique Rum Festival.

I’d tried quite a few different Spiced Rums by the time I came to their stand. Though, to be fair they were mostly difficult to distinguish such was the amount of vanilla used in each blend. I wasn’t overly impressed. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
