My Early Reviews of Renegade Rums

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 10, 2011

This week I am re-posting my early reviews of the rums from the Renegade Rum Company.

One of the aspects of these rums which sets them apart from other rums is the barrels chosen for refinishing. Not second run whiskey barrels from the United States, but rather more exotic wine barrels from selected wineries in Europe.  They produce Port finished rums from Panama and Barbados,  and Chateau Latour finished rums from Jamaica and Guyana. Renegade also experiments with a Madeira finished Guyanese rum.  And those are but a few.

These rums are unique and quite unlike anything produced anywhere else in the world.  They do not taste like traditional rums, rather they taste like new hybrid spirits with the influence from the finishing casks setting their imprint firmly into the rum.

For more information please visit the Renegade Rum Website.

Here are the links to my early Renegade Rum Reviews:

Review: Renegade Rum Panama (Don José) 1997

Review: Renegade Guyana Uitvlught 1995

Review: Renegade Rum Company 2000 Jamaica Rum

The Review for the Renegade Uitvlught 1995 includes a cocktail designed specifically for that rum, A Sloe Walk in the Jungle.

(Just to be upfront with everyone I admit that I have edited the reviews to correct the old typos that I have noticed, and in some cases to clarify my somewhat terse writing style. But the scores and the essence of each review has remained the same.)

Please enjoy this re-posting of my Renegade Rum Reviews!
