($38 CAD) Wanted to grab a spiced rum for sipping to change things up a bit. Honestly, Blackpool was pleasantly surprising. I thought it would burn pretty good but it is relatively smooth with a bit of heat (not bad for 43%). Not sure if I’m just really easy when it comes to Rum but I really enjoy this one straight up.
Smells like loads of warm vanilla and spices. Maybe a little bit of wood as well.
Taste is similar: vanilla, spices, carmel. Raisins, and dried fruit before it settles into the heat.
It’s a nice change up from my other rums so far and definitely gets points for that. Granted, I don’t have any other spiced rums to compare to. Either way, I am digging this one pretty good. For this price, the value is there.

I have a collection of spiced rums, from Koloa to Kilo Kai to Bumbu. This one is worthy of my spiced rum shelf. Try their cocktail recipes on their website or just *sip it*.
Sugar: Estimated at 20 GPL as it's very close to Kraken. I used this one in a taste test of spiced rums with my wife and a couple of friends. I liked this one, but most preferred the Kraken as they found it smoother. This rum has a nice vanilla aroma with a touch of cocoa and of course the spices like nutmeg associated with spiced rums. There is one thing that I would caution you about this rum. Let it breathe as it's got a sharp alcohol taste and aroma. It's a bit harsh as a straight up sipper but it would be okay with some ice. Letting it breath a bit really helps. As a mixer it's quite good and Christmas (or a guest request) are the only times that I look for a spiced rum. If you can't find the Kraken, then buy this one.
Great and refreshing flavour. Not overly vanilla flavoured like other spiced rums. Strangely tastes like a marachino cherry to me but I like it. Great price for this smooth rum.
Nez : Arômes de mélasse, de vanille, d’épices et de fruits secs.
Bouche : Équilibré avec un côté poivré, gingembre, muscade, vanille combiné à la mélasse.
Finale : La persistance est moyenne.
Wonderful dark colour with a strong vanilla nose. Sipping has vanilla, caramel and strong spice. The flavour is too strong even when mixed with Coke. Not enough rum flavour left for me.
