Tasty, but not quite great
When I first reviewed this had my glasses mixed up, this a rewrite. This is a very solid spiced rum and at the price, a WINNER.
The fun starts with the nose, a nutmeg, fall sense of spice with a vanilla undertone. Not overly sharp on the younger but still not a sipper for me.
This rum shines as a sipper standing out in both coke and citrus. Keeps the body of the rum while the spice seems to enhance the mixers taste profile making it a win win.
Have not blended with this but can think of a couple of recipes where this would be fun. I also see myself playing with this rum trying different blends just for fun.
I have loved all the Cockspur rums I have tried and hated to give my original review, cannot tell you enough how sorry I am for that and glad to discover my error and correct it.
Hopefully the fun of Cockspur Spice will be in my home for years to come as I add it to my bar as a stocker!!!
Most spiced rums have the usual combination of spices, but this has a nutmeg flavor to it. I do prefer a stronger proof as this is half of what I'm used to but the same price. Make sure to double up on mixes to get any flavor. It's best on the rocks.
