Tasty, but not quite great
First, I've been a fan of Zane Lampe for a long time and was super excited to find out he was releasing rum. It's been valuable for a while but only very recently available to ship to Ohio. I bought a bottle of both the Spiced and coconut rum. They were $23.99/ea. plus shipping, so around $30/ea. The Spiced has a very nice aroma, sweet with hints of vanilla and oak. Not an overpowering alcohol scent, overall very pleasant. Took a sip and it is quite sweet with a lot of vanilla coming out and a hint of coconut. Not as sweet as some other rums I've had but overall very good. Mixed with some coke zero and lime ages for a great cocktail. I will try a modified mojito soon.
This is one of the better spiced rims I’ve had. Works very well for cooking and especially love the flavor it adds to a rum cake!
Starting from the bottle and the name both are great. The return shot glass from the bottom of the bottle. Neat idea. Will work on getting a collection. The aroma, taste, spice and smoothness are the best I have had.
I don't like it very much as the flavors don't seem to be very intense nor expansive. Tastes like imitation ingredients causing a taste that isn't very enjoyable to me.
This is one of the better spiced rums I've tried. Sweet molasses, vanilla, and an unusual spice that is not as sharp as most spiced rums, but I'm not sure what it is. Hints of oak and coconut as well.
Feels a bit stronger than the 35% it is, but not overpowering. A nice spiced rum!
Great product ! Smooth with a nice balanced spice level ! This was a big hit with my Memorial Day party ! Just about emptied out with the Capt Morgan close 2nd ! Jack Daniel was right on track as well humping Morgan ! Can't go wrong on this one !
I'd love to know the spices in this delicious sipping rum, but I'm sure the competition would too. It's smooth and tasty, would mix well, but tastes great neat. The up cycle your bottle into a nice glass is nifty, but that gimmick doesn’t detract from this excellent choice, and neither should the low cost
First off let me be upfront...I wouldn't know Zane Lamprey if he _____[fill in your own "I wouldn't know" punchline here]_____ but dadgummit, this is a very, very good spiced rum he's selling.
First off the color is beautiful golden brown. And it has a wonderful aroma both from the bottle and in the snifter. I once again admit that I cannot adequately describe aromas but I can tell you that I really like this one.
Now apparently from what I've read the rum itself originates from Angostura in Trinidad and is aged two to three years in oak, filtered a bit and then blended with natural spices. The result is a delightful, well-balanced spiced rum. Surpisingly it does not taste overly sweet like a lot of cheaper spiced rums nor does it have an artificial chemical aftertaste. Immediately I detected coconut...real coconut along with a butteriness. There are other flavors subtly in the background. Kind of a vanilla/toffee thing going.
And it's quite smooth. Has a little burn to it that is nice and leads to a coconut finish. This is a remarkable spiced rum worthy of kicking back and sipping on its own. And of course it is most worthy of mixing in cocktails for a truly well-rounded adult beverage.
I have only two spiced rums that I'm willing to give a "9" rating (Siesta Key Spiced Rum and Old New Orleans Cajun Spiced Rum) so this makes the third.
Excellent job, Mr. Lamprey.
Zane Lamprey's foray into a premium distilled spirit is no disappointment. I love how smooth the spiced rum is with a very welcome hint of vanilla and spices. I normally enjoy spiced rums with diet coke, but this one has so much flavor and character, I enjoy it on the rocks. You really must try this one.
