Tasty, but not quite great
I bought this on a recommendation but could never learn to like it. Too strong for my liking along with a lack of spice flavors. One and done.
Brought over by friends so don’t know price point. Not bad, with vanilla aroma and forward note. Mixed well and better than any I have tasted.
Wonderful aroma that disappoints on the tongue. A bit sharp as a sipper and there is no depth in taste. Okay as a mixer but other spiced rums have more body with the spice adding to the overall flavor, not just sitting on top.
Enjoyed a bottle of Don Q Oak Spiced Rum while vacationing in Las Vegas. Unique bottle and label design. Very light golden color. Pure alcohol and plenty of oak, spices, pepper and vanilla to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end being so dry. Mix this up with your favorite soda.
This is the most expensive of the three spiced rums that I tried today. It tastes like pepper and oak, with vanilla and caramel. It is like they added pepper to a cask of their Single Barrel 2005, which basically ruins that very good rum. If you like pepper on the tongue, you will love this one.
This may now be my top rated spiced rum (which I usually don't care for), but it just barely beat the taste of El Dorado Spiced Rum, which I also tried today. All three were tasted side by side neat in Glencairn glasses. Both can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or mixed. The Cruzan 9 Spice was the third new one and cannot be enjoyed neat. However, at $30 for this one versus $16 for the El Dorado, I have to give my best buy recommendation to El Dorado.
