As mentioned in the Anejo review, Industras Pampero Distillery was founded in Venezuela in 1938 by Alejandro Hernandez, the son of a fisherman from Margarita Island and it’s today … More Review: Pampero Blanco

Review: Rum Nation Supreme Lord III 1982 Jamaica

Fabio Rossi studied winemaking but that didn’t stop him from establishing his own whisky company, Wilson and Morgan in 1992, and soon after a rum company – Rum Nation.

Review: Foursquare Principia vs Foursquare Empery

With World Foursquare Rum Day on the way (17th of November) I decided it would be appropriate to write about Foursquare (again?), this should be a close one.
