Tasty, but not quite great
I've always liked the idea of spiced rum: those two words promise rum+warm spices. But in practice (especially in the case of the mainstream ones), it tends to mean bad (and/or neutral) rum, masked with lots of sugar and vanilla. Even high-quality spiced rums tend to be vanilla-forward and/or overspiced. By comparison, this one is on another planet. Given what is generally called spiced rum, this one is almost in a different category. It is a spiced rum that truly lives up to those two words: rum+warm spices. It has some warm spices, like cinammon, allspice, nutmeg, etc. I also taste some mint. But the spices aren't excessive, and you can still taste the base rum.
As suggested before, this rum rum is not very complex, it's smooth yet the only extra flavor you get is the cinnamon. What I like about spiced rums is the variety of more intense flavors but this is just a standard rum with just one level of extra cinnamon flavor which is not enough for me to buy it again or recommend it.
Perhaps if you're not that much into spiced rums, this might be good for you but I'm rating this based on my expectations of stronger taste experience which I'm not getting here.
It's really too harsh. I am actually familiar with Seale's/Foursquare/Doorly's products, which means i am aware concerning the pure VS sugarbomb issue and that i also know of and appreciate their business (transparency, no sugar added, superior products overall). I wanted to like this rum. But it is too young, less than 80 proof and almost undrinkable, unless you mix it. Tried it with cola and was okayish, i guess. Unlike other spiced rums, this one didn't have a wide variety and abundant quantity of spices in it, but others think of that as a positive. The burn was terrible, too. From all the rums that i've tried to this day, it has to be one of the very few that i was unable to finish my serving, in one session. But i ultimately put it to good use; fetched a special jar (for homemade liquor crafting), piled up inside it well ripened pineapple and mango pieces freshly cut on spot, filled it with this rum, closed it airtightly and stored it away, for 6 weeks. What came out of it and after being properly filtered, was like honey in your mouth; burn vanished completely, it begot a velvety feel, all harshness gone, but it also felt like its alcohol "weakened". Still though, after my tampering with it, drinking that stuff felt like bliss!
I like my spiced rums to be a little more complex (vanilla, molasses, cloves, cinnamon, etc.), but this spiced rum is very simple. This is rum mixed with a lot of nasty "cinnamon" flavor. The cinnamon is quite noticeable, tastes like bark, and it appears to be the sole flavor which makes this "spiced."
No bueno. Gross.
Scortisoaraaaaaaaaaa - in miros scortisoara, poate ceva caramel , nu se simte deloc taria.
primul rom sub 40% alcool (37,5) .
un rom foarte foarte usor de baut, curge lin pe gat, aproape ca nu se simte deloc taria in gust , in miros scortisoara , in gust scortisoara si usor dulceag inbinat cu caramel , in post gust usor dulceag scortisoara si un iz de vanilie.
daca nu iti place scortisoara fereste te de el ))
This rum I first came across when a friend who came to visit me in St.Lucia, brought it over as a gift.
An excellent, yet fairly light and delicate spice rum. Spices never take over and offend the aged oak.
Drink neat or as a superb rum n coke
This is an easy to drink spiced rum with a and very subtle in its flavours not to be over powering in taste. It is a pleasure to drink
