Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Am I really the first to review this?
One of the better Blue Chair Bay rums. Smells and tastes of spiced vanilla frosting. Hard to tell what the spice is, but I think it's mainly a light cinnamon. Nice and creamy, this is a good rum. I slightly prefer the Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum, but this comes close.
Weak at only 26.5%, I wish it had a bit more kick.
Also average. The coconut chair bay is the best of this bunch. I wouldn’t buy the vanilla version again.
Zero reason to drink this on its own (IMO, anyway) but certainly has its place. Good supplemental rum when making cocktails.
I finally decided to give this one a try. Blue Chair Bay's excellent web site shows where each flavor can be purchased locally, so I used that info to visit a store that I had been putting off. Nice selection, but high prices as someone else had told me.
This rum is clear and sugary at only 26.5% ABV. All I taste is vanilla and a very faint hint of cinnamon. One is limited only by their imagination as to what cocktails this can be used in. However, mixing this one with equal parts guanabana nectar makes one really delicious dessert drink. All the more reason to save the best of those old bottles with corks to pre-mix drinks like this one for the fridge.
Enjoyed a bottle of Blue Chair Vanilla rum with my friend at the conclusion of a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Unique bottle and label design for sure. Offputting artificial vanilla smell is far from pleasant. Unfortunately the taste test reveals way too sweet profile, and no burn at the end at all. Awful even when mixed.
