Had some good reviews, so I tried to. I'm not unhappy with the purchase as I was extremely curious, but the rum isn't fantastic. It's reminiscent of Kraken, but a little more.... soapy? They claim flavors of "anise, vanilla, banana, cherry, nutmeg and orange peels". I would have been happy with just two or three of those. I just can't think of a situation I would prefer this over Kraken. I'm giving it a 6, unlike Kraken which I gave an 8 (I believed), because it's not offensive. There is strong vanilla, it makes a decent rum and coke, but that soapy flavor... Not offensive, I just don't understand why anyone would want this flavor.
Have been a Sailor Jerry drinker for years. Then one day Jerry wasn't around... I was really in the mood for some spice and too many of my friends had been with Captain Morgan, though none seem to be in love. So, I tried Kilo Kai. Damn. That's all I can say. Had several at the bar... and am now on the hunt to buy a bottle. Or two.
There aren't many spiced rims in the world that I can drink without chasing but I've found one here. I don't understand what a lot of people don't like about this rum. I guess they don't like their rum to have sweet taste to it. It's pretty sweet but not all that sweet. It does burn the throat but not in an uncomfortable way. I've had Kraken, Sailor Jerry, Captain Mo, and a lot of the other rims you find in your local store and this is honestly the best Rum I have ever had so I'm gonna give it a perfect score because I just don't see anything wrong with it.
Wow! This one is BAD. It actually tastes fake. It isn't complex unless, like me, you start wondering what sort of chemicals are in here? No finish, thin, and tastes totally fabricated. Even for just $20 dont do it.
It was pretty meh. I wasn't expecting much. I had hoped for a "rival" for Kraken's crown (which isn't saying a lot) in the realm of The Spice but it fell pretty short. It's thin and bitey (beyond the "spice") and ultimately is going in ginger beer until it's gone from my house. I'd say it's disappointing but my expectations were really low. It was recommended to me by a bourbon drinker, so how mad can I be at anyone but myself? In a nutshell it suffers from being VERY "watery," far too medicinal (CHERRY "hints") and the spices are (as always) too punchy. When I think baking spices in my rum, I always think subtlety is key like Pusser's baked ginger flavor and Goslings' subtle but noticeable spicy notes. However, "Spiced" rum always has to take it to a WEIRD level. It has to let you know that you have purchased a SPICED rum (spiced rum-molasses based lighter fluid through two columns with some harsh spicy crap thrown in at the end.) It literally tastes like someone took alcoholic water, dumped enough cherry into it until it tasted like Robutussin and then realized it was bad so they put a bunch of spices in it to mask the crapulence. I have NO idea why the words GOOD, SPICED and RUM can't get along but...whatever! Kraken is still king in that category, simply because nobody else is trying to win. Spiced rum is keepin' it weird as always...
Too sweet for me but my spouse loves it. Prob the only spiced rum I’ve had in the last 2 yrs.
