Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I went to a well stocked rum bar today to try 5 different rums with a half ounce pour each. This one was quite a surprise and came in second. The aroma and gentle spices on the palate are truly captivating. There was no after burn, but I don't know how long ago the bottle had been opened on the bar. I was able to sip this one neat and finished my pour before the fifth rum was offered to me. If I finally find a bottle of this one, I will gladly buy it. Having tried and liked their Coconut rum also gained my trust in this company from St. Kitts.
I must admit that I am not a fan of spiced rums. I don't get it. The added flavors all but drown out the underlying taste of this rum.
This is the third Brinley Gold Shipwreck rum I have reviewed and it is by far the best of the three. But still not a great rum. As spiced rums go it's pretty good but there are others I prefer. This one has more of a spiciness as in pepperiness that rapidly approaches after tasting the initial sweetness. This then turns into a burn that starts on the tongue then slowly moves down the throat. It's been aged for 4 years according to the label but it doesn't really show it. Tried it in some Coke Zero and the think I noticed is that the vanilla flavor is more noticeable while the other spices are muted. Odd. I would like to try this in some mixers calling for spiced rum.
Elegant...yes... so easy and smooth. O00I FO$9((
One of my favorite mixers, great for satisfying the caribbean cravings. Awesome rum for the price and I love the story behind the brand!
This is smooth with vanilla, caramel, clove, orange, and a touch of oak. A little weak by my standards but enjoyable non the less. I bought a case at the beginning of summer for mixing by the pool and I'm down to 2 bottles. . . Time to start looking for more!
There is a rum bar in the gold Coast that has this rum and I go there just to have a drink
I can't find in the shop so I will be back for a drink next time in town
this rum is similar to Mcoys rum aged 4 years. This rum doesn't really go well with coke I believe, I think its better with orange/pineapple juice perhaps it def. has some sweetness to it you do taste the vanilla and although it doesn't have any caramel in it it does somewhat taste like caramel. others have said it could run captain morgan out of business however no I don't believe so capatain morgan by far is greater than this (mixed wise) because it is aged I think its better off sipping it straight rather than mixing because the taste doesn't really mix well with coke again this rum is very similar to Real McCoy rum and that rum is usually meant to sip straight as well they are both aged 4years and have the similar taste
Brinley rum Spiced is een klassieke gekruide rum, die op smaak gebracht is met natuurlijke vanille, nootmuskaat, kruidnagel, sinaasappels en andere exotische specerijen. De Brinley rum spiced wordt gedestilleerd uit melasse en is gerijpt in eikenhouten vaten gedurende meer dan vier jaar.
I didn't like this very much until the end. I'm not sure if I was drunk, but the end was ok to mix with coke. smells very strong.
Decent for a spiced rum and aged 4 years. Very smooth rum here no bite or burn, mild baking spices and sweetness, strong vanilla note in mid palate. Overall just wish it was higher than 36% ABV as I liked it better for mixing.
A good bit if harshness, and not a lit if flavor, but good for mixing.
Very strong vanilla flavour but otherwise fairly balanced spiced rum. I don't mind this with ice or in cocktails which call for a spiced rum (as long as the vanilla flavour is ok).
Rigtig god spiced rom til ca. 200 kr. Smag af vanille og karamel.
Da jeg første gang smagte denne var jeg helt solgt.. Den kostede jo kun omkring 200 kr. Den er et helt fantastisk fund til de penge..
Well-rounded and flavorful. Not to alcohol-y. Spices are fairly mild. Definite caramel notes, but found it to be too sweet. I tried it with diet coke and a lime, but I wonder if it would be better in a fruity type drink.
nice floavour lite finish great name. Good local rum
Excellent choice to drink straight from the bottle. It goes very well with coke and loses any alcohol burn once mixed. It is currently my go to rum.
This is really good!.I hate to say it,but this is better than captain morgan spiced rum..Mix with cola and lime!
I sampled this alongside the Vanilla rum from Brinley, and to my taste there's better balance here. I can see this as working well in a variety of mixed drinks that call for a nice range of spice flavor and also benefit from the wonderful color this offering has. I'd say the spices are "over-balanced" here - meaning this is not a sipping rum with an hint of spice - so it won't stand up to serious contemplation in a glass by itself. Give it a chance - perhaps replacing the Kraken or Bacardi Spiced if your preferred mixed drink - and see how you like it. If instead you need a vanilla shot, go for Brinley's Vanilla Rum.
I was skeptical picking it up, but tossed it on some ice and splashed some coke on it and was taken by surprise. Tasty and sweet and greatly enhanced the coke. As a previous poster stated, this rum could easily replace Captain Morgan as a mainstream rum if more people tried it.
Found this winner the other day in the local liquor store and bought a bottle. Am very happy with the flavor. Had first drink over ice straight up. Went down smooth and full flavor but nothing of note that stands out. I love the bottle and the cork. Now drink with Coke and enjoy. I will buy again and again.
so smooth I could drink it neat, but I add some key lime seltzer or coconut water on the rocks
Visited St Kitts and loved this. Easily found in PA stores. Great with coke.
