Easily consumable in a bind
The word that comes to mind with this spiced rum is "not-so-subtle" (okay it's a compound word). I have tried several spiced rums so far (two of my favorites as of this writing are Bayou Spiced and Siesta Key Spiced rums) and there always seems to be one or two dominant flavors among the spices used. This one however does not seem to have any such dominant spice. The spices are definitely there but blended in such a way to become a cohesive flavor unit. This is a pretty darned good rum on its own. Works GREAT in Coke Zero and I imagine would do well in mixed drinks. I probably will try some with some orange juice to see how well the spices blend with the citrus. Might even go a little more basic and put an ounce or two in a glass and add a splash of key lime juice. This rum has a lot of possibilities.
Spice is too subtle to stand out. I consider this a notch above the spiced megarums such as Oakheart, Sailor jerry, Capt Morgan etc - but not nearly on the level of the best ones such as Brinley's or The Lash.
Edit : just broke this one out after a long time, overwhelming vanilla. I agree with the reviewer above, maybe "subtle" is not the word I want - plenty of spice just nothing jumps out at you. Pleasant enough but not memorable.
Even though the bottle "tries to hard" and doesn't pass my cheesy test, it is a good mixer and not too bad with a couple cubes of ice.
