Recommendable to most
I haven't been able to find this rum in my hometown of Longview, TX for over a year. I was told that it wasn't being produced anymore. Well, to my pleasant surprise, I'm spending the night in Ft. Worth and the liquor store across the street from my hotel has it! Woot woot! I am so excited. The guy there told me he had just ordered it a month ago and had no problem getting it. I had also found it in Austin last year so Idk why I can't find it near me.
Aroma: vanilla dominates, but caramel present with potentially hints of clove. Spice not overwhelming, but present
Taste: smooth, very adaptable. Like others have said, fine with coke, although the vanilla and caramel notes do not clash with fruit juices or other liquors.
Honestly, I could drink this straight, room temperature. It's just that good.
Cost: surprisingly low for such a great rum
This rum reminds me a lot of the Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced Rum (in case you never find this one as I read it might be discontinued). I ever so slightly prefer the Shipwreck Spiced because it doesn't have quite as much spice to it.
Smells and tastes of caramel, vanilla, sugar, with a strong, and somewhat floral spice. A bit weak at 35%abv, but a very nice spiced rum nonetheless.
The bottle caught my eye while in the USA and I couldn't resist the packaging. Mixed or neat you can't go wrong. Love the overall experience paired with a great cigar. Was available for a short time in Canada for double the price. Still worth every penny.
This is a good spiced rum. For some it could be considered overly sweet with all of the additives but it is a good sipper for something different. It has a strong vanilla flavor as well as a bit of apricot and chocolate. Good finish and as stated before be prepared because it is sweet. This is a good sipper and good to cook with. I make a BBQ sauce with this as well as a pancake syrup.
Not a bad rum by any means, but overpriced for what you get. Aside from the nicely presented bottle, the actual rum is only marginally better than standard captain morgan rum.
Slick bottle to start with. At first taste a mild vanilla hollered by stronger spices than you standard captain morgansbut minus the bite . sweeter than the original captains but not too sweet. Highly drinkable over ice but great with coke or my favorite bundaberg ginger beer
Surprisingly smooth and has a good finish, nothing overpowering, just a very good spiced rum. It has been mixing in so well with most applications that it is becoming my go-to rum for mixed drinks. The bottle is pretty cool too.
