Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sailor Jerry’s Spiced rum is crafted from a blend of Caribbean rums that are blended and infused with spices and other flavors including vanilla and cinnamon.
The rum is produced by Sailor Jerry Ltd., a company founded to honor the sailor-turned-tattoo artist, Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins.
7.5 nearing 8 land but I will give 8 for its price
I really like sailor jerry's. I actually call it sailor cherry's because of its strong cherry taste, but I really like it for this feature. Rums mostly go for the caramel vanilla flavor and that's cool but I really do like the cherry trend breaker. Smelling it from the bottle smells almost like nothing, maybe a wiff of sugar cane but that's about it really. Keeps its neutral smell in the glass too but then that cherry smells perks up at the very end with a tinge of alcohol. Straight is very harsh at the end, entry is good but then as it exits it gives you the kick in the mouth. Strong taste of cherry and some vanilla. I used to have coughing problems in the winter because of the dryness and took a lot of NyQuil which make me really learn to like that flavor. This gives me that reminder in a rum form so I really like this one. Excellent in coke the strong cherry taste and vanilla taste live on. BE VERY CAREFUL this rum has an incredible ability to sneak up on you, its VERY common to have 1,2,3 and be like "wow I'm totally sober...." and then the hammer of god (sailor jerrys) comes down all of a sudden like a concrete truck and hits you. A must for any serious bar.
Just plainly gosh awful. A server talked me into this and It was an effort to drink even half of it. ( I did because I was a guest at dinner). After dinner I went home and poured myself some Pyrat. ( I was out of my 21 year old El Dorado).
Rhum dégageant d'agréables arômes. Doux en dégustation
My liquor store clerk tried to talk me out of this one, saying it's for college kids. But I got it anyway, and think it's a really good spiced rum. It has a nice vanilla and marshmallow scent with a light peppery spice, and though it's quite strong at 46%abv, I actually like it straight with no ice, which is indicative of a quality rum. As with many spiced rums, there's not much real rum taste here; mainly the added flavoring like vanilla and sugar. But this is a lot better than most spiced rums in my opinion.
Save this for when he comes over. See if he still drinks up everything in your house after that.
I've only had Sailor Jerry at college parties where people feel compelled to take never-ending shots of it.
But not really anything special. Just based on the higher proof it is a no brainer to buy this one instead of CM, but if you can find them go with Brinley's, 7 tiki, the Lash, or Kraken.
I glad to find so many spiced rums other than the Captain on shelves here. Sailor Jerry has done a nice job of sailing in a bit of a different direction. The spice is much bolder. I notice the bottle on this site shows as 80 proof but we have a much higher octane on our shelves. Also not sure what they mean by "The Original", are there other versions? I haven't seen anything but 96 proof and that grade detracts a bit for me; perhaps saying more about me as a wimp. The strong alcohol burn is not what I seek in a rum but I like most else about it. The back story is great with one of the tattoo artist's hula girls on the label but its only a story; the rum is what counts most.
Very good rum....But strong....
Preferred over Captain Morgan
Left a bottle open overnight and the sweet smell stank out the whole room. Far too sweet to have with coke but not nearly good enough to have straight.
This is a solid rum however I have found it really only works well with Coke or Pepsi.
Everyday rum to put with a mixer or neat to sip at the end of the day. Nothing amazing about it. Not bad but not great.
Decent Nose with the typical Vanilla, and spice aroma, I did pull out some leather smell along with Oak. The taste isn’t bad, leather, oak, vanilla, spices with a nice alcohol hug on the way down. I’ve gone through Two bottles in a year, so it’s a good low cost choice for a Rum and Coke. There’s better out there for a few dollars more, but it’s not a bad choice on a budget.
Strong taste of alcohol. The Coke is necessary. Good for drinks.
Maybe not a great sipping rum, it’s mainly a mixer, but it does that well, makes great rum and Coke’s or Cuba libres! Almost taste like it has a cherry – like flavor, obviously some spices in there, but so what, it’s a spiced rum so it’s supposed to taste like that! Anyway, I like it.
While I'm generally not a fan or consumer of store-bought spiced rum (it's seriously easy to make yourself, people!) this is one of the better options in a bind. Higher proof with a sweet cherry & vanilla profile, it goes down dangerously well with coke. A little bit too much added sugar for my palate but if you're looking for a spiced rum, skip the "Captain" and go with the "sailor".
This bottle made me wonder what else must be out there, there must be a whole world of delicious rum out there to sample. Until very recently this was a staple at my house. Narrowly beaten out by red leg in the budget section (but more readily available). For a cheap bottle you can’t go wrong at all.
One of the better spiced rums i had. Pretty smooth and not to harsh
The higher alcohol content hides its mediocre flavor. But I’ve been done with all spiced rum for awhile. I would’ve taken BG over this in my coke. Once you have had better rum—not necessarily more expensive—you will ditch this immediately.
too sticky and weird taste , remind me the cough syrup
Great for its price spiced rum. Has a caramel spiced aroma and a full smocked flavor.
Nice colour but too harsh to sip neat. Could improve with a soda water or mixer but spice finish is a tad chemical. Sorry 🥺
Great spiced taste! 7/10 for this little old friend of mine.
Well, it’s readily available and, let’s not be snobs about this, it’s also very drinkable. I like it neat: not too much burn, sweet enough without being too sweet. Throughout decent. Not exceptional, but good enough.
