Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A little higher proof of 90, but smooth never the less. Strong to vanilla. Like a cross between sailor Jerry and CM black spiced. Also has an earthy flavour from vetiver...a Haitian grass.
Don't let the voodoo theme fool you (or do, if that's what it takes to try this), since this puts the spicy in spiced rum. Maybe it's the vetiver, but more likely the cinnamon that gives this a little Haitian heat. I enjoyed the smooth taste (after getting used to the heat). Probably a good mixer, but not my preference.
Nice colour, super strong vanilla notes with an almost milky finish. Will become a regular in my bar
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
This is the newest spiced rum that I have tried. 45% ,90 proof.
Was very empresed with its flavor.
Nice spiced rum with mild spices. Great with cake or on ice
Reminds me of that time sailor jerry took over my body and made me commit crimes and then have a breath holding contest with my friend
I am not an expert, but loved the colour, the vanilla aroma and also the bottle
With a nice colour and a cool bottle, I picked up a bottle of Baron Samedi as a random pick to add to the collection for mixing.
As with all the bottles I grab, I tried a glass near, and it shocked me! This is a really robust, flavoursome and smooth rum to drink on the rocks. Sure it's nice as a mixer and has plenty (almost too much) flavouring - particularly vanilla - but it's a fantastic rum for the price to sip at or to add one part blackcurrant and one part Baron Samedi to.
Lovely on the palate with a nice sweetness. Add a twist of lime and two cubes of ice and watch the world go by.
Bought a bottle of Baron Samedi Spiced while vacationing in Sydney. Pretty unique bottle and label design. Golden color. Massive amount of vanilla extract and a bit of cinnamon to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Hard to even mix this one with a weird spice combo.
A nice change from the standard spiced mixers like Captain Morgan and its cheaper knockoffs. A little bit more spiciness and less vanilla and sweetness. Harsh for drinking alone.
Affordable and doesn't give me headaches like Sailor Jerry, though I prefer the flavor(s) of Sailor Jerry.
Si on le bois sans glace, très puissant dans la gorge.
Si vous etes une personne qui fait facilement du reflux gastrique, ce n'est pas pour vous.
Je trouve que sa entre dans la meme catégorie que le Kraken.
Pas cher, mais tres bon avec une coke.
Surprised me that it was as good as it was. Goes excellent with coke. Wouldn’t be my first choice to sip, but was decent enough to do that.
As a mixer, this rum will never let you down. It has an interesting, distinctive flavor. It's not amazing, but it's pretty good. It can be sipped, too, although it's not a great sipper
Nice flavors of vanilla and cinnamon. Works well as a mixer but not as a sipper.
Hefty tones of Vanilla, both on the nose and the mouth, accented with an offset almost saltiness prefacing the back of the tongue. Comes through strong with the common harshness of a black rum, for those who enjoy it. Definitely something different here. Would recommend a splash of cola as a compliment to the flavors present.
I was very reluctant to try this spiced rum with the gimmick labeling. When I saw that none of the present 36 reviews rated it below a 6, that caught my attention. Being one to not trust reviewers who are still in the single digits, I found five reviews from those who are in the top 100 (at least 68 reviews). This really caught my attention. After further reading, I found out that what sets this spiced rum apart from it's competition is Haitian vetiver grass (with health benefits) and rich pot still rum. Since the bottle and many reviews claim cinnamon being included, I figured that this would be a good substitute for cinnamon syrup in Tiki drinks. Well, not really! I can barely taste the cinnamon. It is mostly smooth tasting vanilla and caramel with almost no burn. The exotic spices show their colors going down the old Aesop Hagus. At 90 proof, how they do it is a miracle in itself. I plan to use this bottle as a seasoning for drinks, but it is smooth enough to drink on the rocks or with cola.
Ressemble au kraken, il goûte la vanille et la cassonade. Pas mauvais mélangé avec du coke.
Mixer. Really smooth. Keeps you wanting more. Easy drinking. No bad aftertaste either. Zero burn. Candy
I’m not one for mixing my rum but if you are looking for a spiced rum for mixing this will definitely add some zing to your beverage.
Nice amber colour but a little bit strong. I Didn't find it made a nice cocktail. But it was a interesting bottle and and fun a conversation piece.
