Tasty, but not quite great
Ok this is a decent rum, nothing to bragg about but you gotta try their whiskey and port barrel aged stuff. Now were talking, very original an unique right there. But hey for a rum under $20 decent libation!!
I don't drink a lot of spiced rum. The main reason I bought this was because R.L Seale's name was on the label, and his rums are almost always excellent. It's pretty tame straight up, fairly understated. Easy to drink, not at all offensive, but lacking something. Maybe more spice?
Gifted to me and now I don't want to share, while most happy to sing about it!
Light and full of flavour, waxed bottle a bit unnecessary Though.
As others have pointed out, there's a couple of other spiced rums that match this as a sipping rum, but in my opinion nothing that matches it as a mixer.
The vanilla is very, making it at but not sugary. The rum base is excellent, and the flavor is lovely but not so overwhelming it launches itself at you. And considering how good it is, it's surprisingly affordable. So you can burn through a whole bottle or two at a party (and you will, once people try it) without feeling hurt.
Fantastic with coke, ginger beer, or a good root beer (try A&W) .
I still try spiced rums now and then. My wife and son like the flavored and the spiced, so I try them as well. This is a good choice for spiced, but I so much like the flavors provided by a good aged rum instead.
My favourite spiced rum by far ! Blows Sailor Jerry out of the water.. Very cheap here in N.Z (makes a pleasant change ) . A bit of a struggle to drink neat after the first couple of sips , but fantastic with a decent ginger beer . Bundaberg is my preferred choice , they make a great ginger beer but crap rum haha
