Tasty, but not quite great
This was the third spiced rum that I tried today and easily the worst. There is a saying when it comes to cooking that it is what you DON'T put into the pot that makes the dish great. Too much of anything placed into one pot is a recipe for disaster. This spiced rum has 9 spices, but I cannot distinguish a single one of them. All of them being combined winds up tasting like medicine. I will start my rating with a generous 5, but I am sure that this will gradually be lowered as the bottle is emptied very slowly. What else can one expect for only $10.
This is a small step up from your typical large-batch production spiced rums. A bit more vanilla, but pretty smooth for a full 80 proof (40% ABV). Poured neat, you can smell the vanilla and baking spices with a hint of cream and citrus. The first sip is surprisingly smooth, and sweet, but not too sweet. A short finish leaves behind a hint of clove and licorice. This mixes well with a rum & coke, and would also go well in a pina colada, but would get lost in a stronger cocktail.
Good but not what i would desire on a friday night. Works better as a mixer. I dont really recommend as a sipping rum. But with the price and flavor it works.
I have champagne taste but a beer budget. Only drink rum on the rocks with the exception of top-shelf rums. Cruzan 9 has a good (not great) rum taste with hint of spice. Agree with other reviewers that vanilla is prominent flavor but not over-powering.
Very heavy on the vanilla. With Coke it's practically Vanilla Coke. Straight it's vanilla with a hint of cinnamon as the main flavors.
