A Pirates Guide to Rum

By in Tasting, The Butler Wine-Show

Yaarrr! The 19th September be Talk Like a Pirate Day so it was good fortune that blew Toby Cutlass our way with his booty of rums.

I got into the spirit by dressing up as Katy Perry and we met at The St James Tavern – an institution in the world of rum as they keep over 80 behind the bar. Sign up to their facebook group (Rum Club) to keep on top of their activities.

I love Rum. Whiskey makes Cameraman shouty, but rum keeps him smiling but there is as complex a world out there as with fine whiskies or sipping tequilas.

Toby gives all we need to embark on a voyage of discovery: what its made of, what colour denotes, what countries are good for entry level.

The ones he bought in (Mezan) are fantastic but very rare: only one batch from each distil. We have a selection in the shop now from Panamanian to Bajan.

It be a fine way to set sail towards Hangover. Avast matey!
