Howling Highlights – Renegade Rums

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 25, 2009

This week the spotlight is placed upon the Renegade Rum Company.   Renegade Rums are single vintage artisanal rums made from hand selected stocks of the finest distilleries in the Caribbean and the Americas.   Renegade will hand-pick the rum casks from the selected distilleries and ship the rums to Scotland to refinish or ‘Ace” them in hand selected finishing barrels at the Bruichladdich distillery.

Renegade Rums

What sets these rums apart from others is the barrels chosen for refinishing.  Not second run whiskey barrels from the United States, but instead more exotic wine barrels from selected wineries in Europe.  So we have a Port finished rums from Panama and Barbados,  or  Chateau Latour finished rums from Jamaica and Guyana.  Renegade experiments with Madeira finished Guyanan rum.  The list goes on.

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.

Later this week I will be giving my first impressions of Renegade Rum Jamaica 2000 (Hamden).  An eight year old rum from the Jamaican Hamden distillery which has been finished in French Chateau Climens Casks.  Until then you can enjoy my reviews of Renegade Rum Panama (Don Jose) 1997  and Renegade Rum Guyana UITVLUGHT 1995.

Renegade Rum Panama (Don Jose) 1997

Awesome aroma with oriental spices, and brown sugar. A Mild fruity aroma like cherries sits at the very back of the nose……

Renegade Rum Guyana UITVLUGHT

I am glad I tasted this five times before I reviewed it as it gets better with each tasting. I will warn you that the flavour is unlike any rum I have tasted previously…….
