I'm not a big spiced rum guy, so I was hesitant to try this one, but I'm glad I did. The makers of this rum (which is a blend of Guyanese and Trinidadian), frustrated by a spiced rum market saturated with syrupy vanilla bombs, set out to create something different (though they held onto the strong, "fun/dangerous" brand tropes). The end result is decidedly spice-driven, not vanilla! Think heavy cloves (see what they did there?), cinnamon, and other "winter" spices. This stuff would be ideal with hot cider, mulled wine, cola, or for a quick spiced cocktail.

Definitely my least favourite out of the small amount of rums that I’ve tried. Hugely overpowering taste of cloves which I’m not a fan of. Luckily I only bought a 50ml miniature bottle because I had to pour it away. It looks like this one is a bit like marmite.

I tried this for the first time at a festival. Everything after that was a bit of a blur!
But this rum is next level in terms of spiced rums - not too sweet, plenty of bite with just a little burn. Works well with anything apple - fizzy or still.

I enjoy a good spiced rum from time to time, as it's nice to have with a mixer when I want a little break from more pure, neat rum. I bought this knowing full well that it wouldn't be a proper rum, per se, but rather a typical "spirit drink" as labelled on the bottle. It's not bad. It's not great either, but it's drinkable with coke or ginger. A bit heavy on the cloves in their spices, which maybe should have been expected due to the play-on-words in the name. Yeah not much else to say really, not a terrible rum, but there are definitely better spiced rums out there for the price.

Full on flavour without the usual sweetness of spiced rums. Its a more refined tast that says it all. Spiced & Rum. They got the blend right without over emphasising anyone thing. OK Cloves maybe but its a nice quirky change from vanilla and caramel alone. I deff want more, and will enjoy neat and mixed.

Great tasting spicy rum. Can definitely taste and smell cloves, so no good for you if you're not a fan of cloves. Slight burn, but really tasty. I think it may mix well with coke, but do far have only had it straight. Recommended.

Cloven Hoof is the one mainstay in my drinks cabinet due to its popularity with my family. I love this rum on its own with a few cubes of ice as well as mixed with a premium ginger ale / beer. It's a smooth, spicy rum that's so easy to drink you sometimes forget how strong it is. If you're going to try one new rum this year then make it Cloven Hoof!

I must confess to not being a big rum drinker or a fan of cloves, but this is absolutely wonderful. Lovely as a sipping rum but works equally well in a cocktail. It’s beautifully smooth and the flavour has real depth to it. It’s replaced whisky as my night cap of choice.

Love it the spices, very unique taste, not your usual vanilla stuff.
