While I'm not a big fan of spiced rums, this one is the best I've tried. It's made with all natural spices, not as sweet as other spiced rums and the flavor reminded me a little of ginger bread. I've rated this among all the rums I've tried but if I were to rate spiced rums on their own, I'd give this a solid 10. My friend who shared it with me said he made egg nog with it that turned out great.

Superbly drinkable, like a gingerbread cookie in a glass. One of the best spiced rums I have had. You don't even have to drink it, just smell it.

Wow. It's not often that you find a spiced rum that hasn't been sugared beyond reason. This one is definitely not too sweet. That's the good news.

The less-good news is that it has more nutmeg than a spice hut in the Banda Islands. In other words, too much. Nevertheless, it has garnered some great reviews here. Maybe it's me. Actually, with all the extra nutmeg, this rum might shine in a Painkiller. Definitely worth a try.

All of the fall spices are present, with cinnamon and nutmeg up front. Eggnog and coffee based drinks should work well, probably works well in food recipes too.

Smelling this instantly reminded me of pumpkin pie! It's actually ok for a flavored rum, and I think pumpkin pie goes a lot better with rum than some of the other flavors I've tried (grape, lemon, etc). Still, I'm not as big a fan of the flavored rums as I am the traditional aged rums.

Smells and tastes of pumpkin pie, with nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla, this is definitely a decent rum. But I'm rating it against all rums, not just flavored rums (this is currently categorized as a 'spiced rum', but I believe it should be a 'flavored rum', though that doesn't effect my rating.)

Kind of ironic that I try this spiced rum less than a week before Thanksgiving. It definitely smells and tastes of pumpkin spice (nice nutmeg). Very smooth rum with good after-warmth. Never a harsh burn. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to use this as a sipping rum and in Thanksgiving-themed mixers. Pumpkin punch anyone? Doesn't work as well in colas IMHO but does make for a unique combination. Siesta Key rum is made in small batches at a family-run distillery in Sarasota, Florida which happens to be about 12 miles from Siesta Key, Florida (initially I erroneously thought Siesta Key was somewhere between Miami and Key West). This rum has won awards and I understand why. Very good stuff.

If you are like me and find most spiced rums to sweet to sip, then this is an oasis in a sugary sea. In mouth profile is smooth all around and flavors are apple pie meets gingerbread. Haven't used as a mixer yet, but I guess you could if you wanted to desecrate this masterpiece. My favorite spiced rum to date

... and I've done a lot of "research". For that guy who started on Captain Morgan in college, then grew to enjoy some of the finer things in life, this is a great way to go back to my roots. A local rum made in Florida that is hands-down my favorite spiced rum. For those critical of the sweeter rums, this one isn't for you. They don't hide the fact that they add honey with the spices before aging, but the final result is worth it. You can pick out the honey, clove, and nutmeg, and at 70% abv, it's pretty smooth. Use in anything you would have used the Cap'n to kick it up a notch. I like it with Coke and lime.
