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 was initially attracted to Sailor Jerry rum because I have a friend with an original Sailer Jerry tattoo. His style was classic Polynesian. Actually, the rum turned out to be very good, either mixed or on its own. Vanilla/caramel taste, but very understated. No burning aftertaste. Excellent in the spiced rum category.
The Sailor Jerry spiced rum is really spiced with strong vanilla and cinnamon (as well as nutmeg) notes but it's not sweet enough into my sense.
Strong, harsh, nice taste, but no real magical feeling once it's gone down... I love the bottle, the spirit of the brand, certainly remains on my shelf, but not something I can cherish neat. I'm sure in hot weather, on a sail boat, it might feel altogether different. But doesn't keep me warm on cold winter nights.
Well i think most people agree the original recipe was a bit better, Ive even seen someone from there apparently quoted giving advice to add sugar and vanilla essence to the bottle to replicate the taste of the original which baffles me if I'm honest... :-/
Anyways the current less sweet, slighlty spicier rum is a basic spiced number with plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and a little pepper comes through rounding off the light toffee finish. With the recent influx in spiced rums I would recommend looking around as there is much better on the market now!!
