Enjoyed some Whaler's Spiced rum during the Holidays. Bottle and label design are just okay, nothing to write home about. Artificial spice mix strong and prevalent to both nose and palate. No burn since its so sweet and high on sugar content. Definitely better than your run of the mill spiced rums, but not by a large margin.
I first tried Whaler's Dark Rum in Hawaii in 1994, and was not impressed. Having ignored Whaler's for all these years and then seeing this one for only $13 along with the Dark for only $15 gave me a WTF moment. I was hoping for some exotic Hawaiian spices, especially ginger. Instead, I get some strange artificial flavors that still keep this rum pale in appearance and thin. I have had worse, but I won't buy this one again.
