Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Excellent with a wedge of lime. Really enjoy this rum.
Started drinking this rum with Coke.
Finished the bottle straight up with one ice cube. Would definitely buy again.
This has got a great spicy flavour and is great to mix with dry ginger ale. Not amazing to sip.
Would keep it as a mixer personally.
The taste of Baron Samedi leaves your tongue wanting. Smooth and full bodied, the vanilla and cocoa really take the reins, making a very unique spiced rum. As a chaser, mix 1 part cola to 2/3 parts Baron Samedi over ice. With stones, this makes a great sipper over a game of poker. Don't drown out the taste or else you'll be wasting your money. Recommended for weekend get-togethers or small parties.
If you call yourself an enjoyer of sipping rums this may not be for you. But if you are new to the Rum drinking world this might be something that will interest you. As for myself this is the Rum that I pull out when there are lots of people around who are going to fill up there glasses with cola and say they are drinking rum.
Definitely not something a regular Rum sipper would enjoy on the regular.
Spiced rums have always been a hit or miss proposition for me. Either they royally suck or are quite good. This one falls into the latter category. It does base itself on the legendary voodoo character Baron Samedi (French for Baron Saturday) don't let the gimmick fool you...this is a pretty good spiced rum. It has a complex aroma and has a rich amber hue.
It is a strong-than-average rum with 45% ABV (90 proof) but does not have as major of a burn as I expected. Mind you, it does have a bit of a burn but is also fairly smooth. Somewhat paradoxical, I realize, but it is what it is.
The flavor is a complex mix of spices. Personally I taste predominately vanilla and caramel but there is more subtle flavors that honestly I am unable to isolate. In short, it has a very good overall flavor. Definitely one to try.
Very similar to the Bacardi oakheart
Strong vanilla tast very good in 7up
Not great for sipping great for mixes little strong 90 proof but smooth has some spice and kick to it
I was hesitant to buy but my wife liked the label. I enjoyed it with mix but not for sipping for me anyway.
Was pleasantly surprised considering this is a USA product. Smells of cinnamon and vanilla. Not too much bite for 90 proof. Still a little boozy to the taste. But enough sweetness to make it easy to drink straight. One of the better spiced rums, but still falls into the party mixer category.
Doesn't have that overpowering vanilla taste like most spiced rums. Almost drinkable straight but a little too harsh. Best mixed with cola.
I really was drawn to the look of the bottle, it stood out from the rest with its busy artwork and squarish medicine show bottle look. The rum was pretty good, standard spiceed rum flavour with a bit of a burn at 90 proof. I would put this on my bar for taste and mostly for the look.
Tried alone, it's a bit harsh on the alcohol/heat, but it mixes like a dream. Very balanced, good vanilla notes, as well as cinnamon and other spices. It's like if you took Sailor Jerry's up a notch. Highly recommend and can't wait to get some more.
I am by far a long way form being an expert, this is just one opinion of one person.
This is my current favourite rum, many of you will declare that I know nothing and my knowledge is limited (and you are correct) however, I am personally enjoying this rum very much.
It's smooth and easy to mix or go solo.
Even my wife (who never drinks rum) will have one with cola and lime
Nice colour, super strong vanilla notes with an almost milky finish. Will become a regular in my bar
This is an above average spiced rum , my third spiced in a row.. Very sweet , lots of caramel , maybe a bit too much ? Easy to sip as very sweet , spicy with a bit of vanilla , its warming as a higher percentage (40%) Its a good mixer which is what i will use it for. As others have remarked its similar to Sailor Jerry... Redleg spiced , my last choice is better IMHO.
Great finish - smooth. Very reminiscent of Sailor Jerry.
This is the best rum i've found yet for a simple rum and coke. I really wasn't expecting that from this cheap and bizzare looking bottle.
Comfortable drinks with a slight botanical aftertaste.
The fisrt sip is interesting. The smell of caramel but the spicy finish with a sting to it. With a touch of cinnamon.
This is a dark rum that is sweet from the beginning. Hints of vanilla and brown sugar come through. Tasty!
This is the newest spiced rum that I have tried. 45% ,90 proof.
Was very empresed with its flavor.
It's a smooth rum even at 90 proof. Good for sipping even better with Dr Pepper. Good spice and vanilla.
