Hampden 2010 LROK Pure Single Rum and Foursquare 2013

67% Hampden packs a real punch. Simply stunning.

Luca Gargano at Velier has some great rums on offer. I could spend the whole day at the Velier stand.

Foursquare 2013, 64% 

So dry and full of tannins and subtle oak. Despite only 2years of ageing this really is fine rum.

Port Mourant Guyana white rum, 59%

Close your eyes and this is not a white rum. Really smooth and creamy and a long woody, leathery finish.


Caroni 57.18%

Wow. Wood and slight sweetness. This develops into a full on smokey, tobacco laden glass of wonderful spice. Not fiery or rough, simply divine.

Caroni 1996, 70.1%

Heavy appearance with long lingering legs. Some wood, tobacco and spice aromas. Absolutely fantastic quality rum, no way that this tastes like 70@% ABV. It is rich, full of smoke and spice plus some nice fire.
