Plusy jsou rozuhodně tyto:
- Jemná citrusová chuť
- Vůně po vanilce

Klasický šroubovací uzávěr bez korku - zasloužil by si lepší láhev i uzávěr.
Po přečtení recenzí se mi nechtělo věřit, že je opravdu jako starý Sailor, ale po čase mi to nedalo a rum jsem koupil. Nepoznám v chuti rozdíl, i když to bylo už před 7-mi lety, co jsem ho pil naposledy. Přítelkyně je z něho nadšená, takže mohu pouze doporučit.

Strong, smooth and sweet. Almost perfect rum. Very comparable to Bumbu, has a slight stronger taste but that comes with a bigger punch.

Tastes like Christmas in a bottle, wonderful when mixed. But you can't have too much before it gets sickly

N- Fat melted vanilla ice cream with a layer of thick bols cacao brown and baileys. Whiff of raisin with loads of brown sugar and peppery raw spirits. (16/25)

P- Lime peel, cola candy, creamy, sweet with the head-hammering grumpy vanilla all the way. (15/25)

F- Short-medium, coat of spirit, vanilla, chocolate milk, and caramel. Reminded me the discontinued Vanilla Coke on early of this century. (14/25)

Balance- Simple and straight forward, vanilla, chocolate and lime, off notes of acetone, raw, destined for the mixing. (15/25)

Weighted Rate:- 60pt

Bit like lambs spiced and red leg. Not for me, not great even with coke.

This is drinkable but a little lacking compared to some.

Obviously there are those here who don't like spiced rum. Let's take them out of the equation because they're not going to give much, if anything, a mark greater than 5.

As spiced rums go, this is ok, as vanilla-spiced rums go it's good. I'd say it was less spicey than Sailor Jerry, but much heavier on the vanilla. It's also sweeter and slightly more watery than SJ. I'd put them about on a par. If you really like vanilla rum, then there's two that are much better - St Aubin's vanilla rum is basically a good rum with a rum taste with the addition of a decent hit of vanilla (but it's much pricier) . It's lovely - maybe a bit like Plantation Pineapple is to rum with pineapple, but St A's is smoother and with less kick. Rolling Calf takes what Old J does and ups it - smoother, more kick, about the same vanilla but a bit more lime and spice.

If you like this, I think it's very unlikely that you would not like those two as well. If you hate this, you won't like Rolling Calf, but you still may well like St Aubin Rhum Agricole Vanilla.

Great taste for a spiced rum. Prefer this to a captain Morgan's spiced for cocktails. Enjoyed at rum fest
