Lovely cherry spiced rum . When I first tried this years ago I hated it but as we grow and develop taste it has become a change of a spiced rum ..

It has 89g/L which is one of the highest readings I have ever seen so I cannot rate this higher than a 1

To be honest this isn’t really my style of rum but isn’t a bad one

Was expecting strong cherry taste but more vanilla. Tried neat, maybe better with coke.

This is a rum with a strong hit of vanilla with an added twist of cherry oil. It smells like candy floss, and is awesome mixed with cream soda, and makes plain cola taste like cherry cola. However, its quite sickly and if you aren't one for sugar loaded rum, then give this a miss. A sexy novelty I wouldn't turn down as I love its flavour profile, but if I was in a serious mood for rum, this would just piss me off and make me feel sick. I would like to experiment more with the fun flavours in this with cocktails, but its sweetness makes it difficult to recommend as a go-to. I would however say that this is a great introduction to rum drink for those that are still stuck on morgans spiced, red leg, and other easy to drink spiced rums.

Surprisingly smooth and sweet goodness. Wonderful for an occasional tasty treat

I tried this at the Exeter Rum Festival and really enjoyed it. It mixed really well with coke, but was equally delicious on its own. No burn, smooth and very more-ish!

I find the Old J spiced to be too sweet and too artifical. I actually prefer Rolling Calf as I think it is less sweet and more interesting in terms of the vanilla and lime hit - and it has a sort of dry tang on the tongue. This is actually, much more interesting than the Vanilla (ie Spiced) Old J. The cherry is noticeable on the nose and taste, but it is definitely not overpowering. It's not quite subtle, but it's medium-subtle. In that sense, it's refreshing because a lot of flavoured spirits are a bit overpowering. At 35 per cent, there will be those who mark this out, straight off, but it's worth a go, even if it does retail at more than the Spiced.

Was expecting a huge blast of cherry with this but all I got was very sweet vanilla. Not nice straight as a nasty burn hits straight away. It comes alive with coke and tastes like cream soda but after two of them it becomes sickly and I wanted to go back to a proper rum. A bit gimmicky this one - and where's the cherry???
