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.

This was the first rum I tried neat. It's a drinkable rum.

This rum is only good in drinks where the extra vanilla taste is not detrimental to the drink. The vanilla is too much.

Don't let the labeling fool you. Wasn't a great spiced at all.

9 spiced Cruzan rum is a great rum to mix with coke or even pure with ice. For a fantastic price.

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.
