I really like this rum. As of this review, I'd call it my 2nd favorite spiced rum (after the Koloa Spice, which is my all time favorite spiced rum).
Has a somewhat sweet taste, that's heavy on licorice and herbs.
Smells and tastes of licorice, herbs, vanilla, ginger, and tea. I really like it!
This was a nice surprise for something calling itself a spiced rum. Not much at all in the nose. There is a herb quality to the flavor profile and very little on what I would call the spice flavor notes. I am sipping this and will definitely try it as a mixer.
Got this rum from my brother in law, and he knows his rums! One of the best rums I have tasted in a long time, the aroma is complex with hints of green tea and vanilla. I have tried it neat and on the rocks, it can hold it own.
Spectacular rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued onwards with 9North Spiced Rum. Very nice bottle and label design. Dark mahogany color. Quite a strong spice mixture to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Extremely sweet in flavor profile. Caramel and several spices are fighting for their chances to shine on this rum.
I’m not a big spiced rum drinker or fan, but I’ll admit that this has changed my mind. This is as smooth as they come. Vanilla is extremely potent on the nose. The flavor has notes of different spices like nutmeg and a hint of pepper. The finish is smooth with extremely little burn. Definitely keeping a bottle on my shelf.
This is about as far away from Kraken or Captain Morgan as you can get and still call yourself a spiced rum. It's SO different from what you'd expect when you think "Spiced rum"... instead of cloyingly sweet, this is almost medicinally herbaceous; instead of a mouth full of cinnamon and nutmeg, this is delicate and covers a wide range of flavors, while still being balanced.
I've never considered a spiced rum as something to sip and enjoy on its own, but this is easily there. I look forward to every drop of this one.
