Distributors of Minnesota have stopped getting it but I will tell you there is no other comparison . Sad to see it go and when they still sell Ron Diaz crap

Do you enjoy Captain Morgan, Sailor Jerry, or any other sweet, spiced rum out there? If so, this rum is going to be for you! It is cheaper ($15 or less for a 5th, depending on the liquor store, I pay $12 for mine). It is very smooth when mixed. I cannot drink many things straight anymore, thanks to a several year binge... This rum mixes well with Sprite Zero and a splash of sour mix. I find it comparable in taste (when mixed) to Captain Private Stock, but this is much cheaper. Captain also gives me heart burn after a few drinks, and this does not. It isn't overly strong on the "alcohol" smell, and does well to keep you buzzed. Be careful though, because it mixes so well, you can drink your share very quickly, and it will sneak up on you. Happened to a friend of mine during poker night. One moment, he was tipsy (like the rest of us), the next, he passed out while he was talking. Kind of funny looking back.

Was surprised at the quality, expected less actually. Pretty smooth with lots of molasses and the spices hinting at the end. Easily replaces Captain Morgan spiced.

I haven't tried this rum in a couple of years, and I have tried many rums since, but I have fond memories of mixing cocktails with this. Unfortunately, I cannot find it anywhere around where I live. For now, I stick to my nostalgia and award it an 8. No other rum that calls itself "spiced rum" has come close to this one for me.

Decent mixer, spiced rum with a hint of vanilla. Nothing special, but affordable.

Tonightโ€™s Rum, Shellback Caribbean Spiced Rum from the wonderful Modesto California. I know, a US Rum? Well itโ€™s reported to be made from the finest Caribbean sugar cane. This light colored Rum is soft on the nose, no strong overpowering Rum scent. Itโ€™s primarily vanilla, caramel and hint of orange. Itโ€™s mild on the tongue but a little hot on the roof of the month. The orange and caramel notes come through a bit more after as it makes it into your tummy. The finish returns to vanilla and has a little burn. Itโ€™s quite pleasant and a fair Rum to serve neat. It would also be a good addition to a tart fruit juice. 7 out of 10

Its a tasty rum that has a strong vanilla finish. It is great as a mixer with Coke Zero. Seems to be hard to find. I am a Shellback (US Navy equatorial crossing 1992 Pacific Ocean) and bought this as a bar display rum. It was better than expected.

It just had such a harsh taste that I missed they enjoyment of its flavor. On the other hand if its cheap enough its viable mixer.

It smells more fruity than spicy, which was surprising, but not a lot of flavor. A little vanilla, a little rum, and a bit of alcohol. Not for drinking straight, but could easily go in a coke or ginger ale.

Low end spiced rum that is better than some more expensive ones out there. $15 gets you a nice tasting rum with the flavors you'd expect such as vanilla, caramel, baking spices, butterscotch and some oakiness. Dried fruits and nuts also unveil themselves to the palate.
