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.
Tasty, but not quite great
I tried this rum with an eye-catching ad, but unfortunately my expectations have not been met. In my opinion, it is quite similar to the Captain Morgan type rum, and it does not outweigh the average. At a given price, I would expect something better than just the diminutive to annoying taste of vanilla that turns out to be rather aggressive.
I love Sailor Jerry when I get good bottles. Yum! But sometimes the infused spices and flavors are left out or not completely added. It is tremendously frustrating to have to take it back to the liquor store for a replacement. How hard us thus to get it right each and every bottle? I'm looking for another spiced rum that is more consistent.
It does have a nice vanilla aroma, but not very smooth and is a little harsh on the aftertaste. Not trying to be critical, it does have qualities that stand out and it mixes very well with coke. But for me I prefer rum neat and this isn’t a bottle I would recommend straight.
This rum is good in my opinion as a spiced rum. Better than Captain Morgan but definitely has a bit of a bite. Not smooth drinking like a finer aged rum would be, but a very good flavor. My top choice for a "mixer" rum. A great value for the price. Also possible to drink with ice, but slightly harsh for that.
