Review: Tattu Rum

Quite often I find myself browsing rum on Amazon (UK) just to see what offers are out there and what new brands are popping up. While the spiced rum offering is abundant, sometimes I see a bottle that I purchase hoping it will be at least somehow interesting – that’s how I got Tattu Rum. … More Review: Tattu Rum

Review: Ninefold Nith Inshore Rescue Pure Single Rum vs Ninefold Barrel Aged Pure Single Rum Edition #2

At the start of February I had the pleasure to meet Dr. Kit Carruthers, the owner and maker of Ninefold rum, in person.

That same evening Kit hosted … More Review: Ninefold Nith Inshore Rescue Pure Single Rum vs Ninefold Barrel Aged Pure Single Rum Edition #2

Article: My 7 Favourite Daiquiri White Rums

Firstly I would like to point out that I don’t fully agree with the white, golden, dark classification generally attributed to rum, I believe colour has little or even nothing to do with the flavour profile. Practices such as filtering aged distillate, or adding caramel colouring to unaged ones render this categorisation pretty much useless. … More Article: My 7 Favourite Daiquiri White Rums

Review: Circumstantial Cane ‘Return of the Daiq’ – Batch 2

It’s been almost 3 years since I reviewed the very first rum distilled in Bristol, the Circumstantial Cane (Batch 1) and stated it was “one of my favourite rums”. As I also mentioned there, I was very much looking forward to a second batch and it’s finally here. It might seem odd I’m so excited … More Review: Circumstantial Cane ‘Return of the Daiq’ – Batch 2
