Tried the Red Leg Spiced rum on a very rainy Sunday evening and it did not bring me a Caribbean vibe. Very light brown color, definitely some artificial coloring being used. Artificial flavors over power the nose. Cinnamon overload when tasting it. Long burn at the end, and its only 37.5%, so better to skip this one.

I'd put this almost on a par with Rebellion. Whereas that one is very sweet, this one is medium-sweet with a big ginger kick. This one is tangy, that one is warming. They are both high up on the list of good quality, reasonably priced rums (roughly £20 or less). This is easily drunk neat or on the rocks, but it also goes well with coke as that will sweeten it a bit and the ginger will still come through very nicely.

After ginger, the main flavours are mixed-spice and a subtle hint of vanilla. There's also a hint of something citrusy, maybe orange. Blimey, what's with people going about heavy vanilla? If you want heavy vanilla try Admiral J, Rolling Calf or Pink Pigeon. Ginger is several times stronger than vanilla here. If it's an anything bomb (which it isn't), it's a ginger bomb.

I'd say it was much more interesting than the rather dull Sailor Jerry and the even duller Foursquare, but Rebellion has the edge on it if you like sweet spiced rums. Elements 8 has more depth and complexity and a better base, but it's a lot more expensive; Chairman's Reserved Spice is better but also less of a session rum than this in that this is light and that is very rich.

Spiced rum is always a hit or miss for me. In case of red leg we have an almost Bull's-eye. I love the branding and the subtle vanilla and ginger taste of this rum. Even if your preference goes to other styles of rum I can definitely recommend adding this one to your collection

What a legendary spiced drop! Super smooth on the rocks, only real way to enjoy this rum.
Delicious spiced flavours!

Ok flavours with hints ginger and vanilla but a little to harsh on the throat to be a sipping rum. Best drunk as a mixer.

Smooth, well balanced and unique.

Would and have served in cocktails and on the rocks. Have also then promptly hid them for my own personal consumption before anyone gets any wise ideas.

Would recommend putting your relatives off rum with cheap, store-band rum to minimise the risk that could befall your bottle of Red Leg.

I bought this in tesco on a budget and now on my third bottle. Find it difficult to drink some rums straight but this was incredible on its own not even with ice. You can taste the vanilla and ginger. Smooth rum and haven't had better!

Very vanilla in flavour and taste nice with vanilla coke and ice.

A bouquet of spices, ginger, then alcohol. Swallow easily, tongue and mouth burns slightly, syrupy sweetness, spices, then there is bitterness. Easy to drink, but more suitable for cocktails. In my head it becomes turbid, my stomach is hot, but my desire to continue does not go away.

Vanilla is the main element of its aroma and taste. Also like design of this bottle.
