Absolutely love this stuff as a shot, I'm sure it would mix with rum chata well, but on it's own it's stellar. Makes no sense to be as good as it is.
Very much in the vein of amaro or other such liqueurs. All about the spices/herbs. Very distinctive but spiced/flavoured rums are really not for me.
Pleasantly surprised. Taken away as a bonus. Rich in flavor. Let your glass breathe. Certainly benefits the rum
Dejlig rum til Daiquiri og andre cocktails. ikke den stor sipperum
Dejlig Jamaica rum fra plantation, er ikke den bedste sipper, men er god til cocktails
Nose: heightened alcohol smell, mild vanilla, hint of molasses, hint of oak
Palate: first sip kicks with that alcohol burn but after you let it breathe a minute the burning taste subsides and it is more of a light slightly sweet watery burn with not much else.
Finish: slight burn lingers with bitter and sour, the vanilla molasses and oak from the nose does not translate to the neither plates nor finish
Unusual aroma notes which are difficult to identify. Up front tastes slightly sweet, but finishes quite dry.

The flavor palate is off somehow, I can't put my finger on it. It just has no redeeming qualities. Buyer beware.
Decent rum. The nose has some grassiness notes with some oakiness. The taste is dry with similar notes and vanilla. Minimal burn on the finish. Overall pretty solid. I wouldn’t hesitate too much to drink this neat on a weekend night with a good cigar.
I have been seeing this Texas rum on the shelves of Total Wine for quite some time. I always left it there thinking what on earth do Texans know about making rum. So after reading reviews of this rum on Total Wine, I found out that this is actually from a winery in Tyler Texas on the far eastern side. They use their ex-wine barrels to age this rum from three different versions of molasses. This got my attention. Port wine is one of the barrels. So far so good. Syrah is the other barrel. Not so good for me since that grape is too spicy. One either loves it or hates it and I just cannot stand Syrah wine. With this last lingering doubt, I still bought my bottle today, mainly because of NO DAMN BOURBON NOTES!
Had they chosen Zinfandel instead of Syrah for barrel aging, this rum could have gotten my rating of 8 or higher while also giving Richard Seale a run for the money. I do give them credit for being very adventurous! And I will no longer frown upon Texas rum.
I thought that this was a new Jamaican rum when I saw it on the shelf. For only $30 US, I told myself WTF and brought it home today. Then I saw that it is a spiced rum, and rather pricey at that. Well, at least it has a gorgeous bottle to go with it, complete with an embossed turtle on the front and a real fat old time cork.
I have had a lot worse spiced rums and only a few that are much better. This company is transparent and states the ingredients on the back label: coconut, sweet spices, and a touch of ginger. However, with this odd combination, I could not single out any one of them. This has become a very unique combination on it's own. I would also classify this spiced rum as being sweet. I don't regret buying my bottle, but probably not again.
The Avua Amburana Cachaca had been my favorite cachaca up to this point. This one is also rested in amburana wood casks, but they call it umburana here. I looked this up and they are basically the same, Brazilian cherry wood.
This Germana version is much lighter and smoother than the one from Avua. Both can be sipped neat, served on the rocks, made into caipirinhas, or mixed into cocktails limited only by one's imagination. In a caipirinha, the taste of this cachaca barely comes through, but one knows that it is present. Sipping this one neat could be an inspiration for those who want to use this as a gateway to aged rhum agricoles from Martinique.
I rate this as a high 7 and almost an 8.
I could hardly imagine any spiced rum as a sipper, but Sailor Jerry Spiced is definetly on the top of my mixers list. Nice color and nose with dominant vanilla (but much more balanced than CM) and my favourite - black pepper and nutmeg notes.
Best mixes with Cherry Cola.
I'm not a big fan of the white rums, but this is a good one! Soft and round, with perfectly balanced sweetness (something I value a lot in the sweet rums), easily distinguishable ripe banana with just right vanilla and tropical fruit notes and smooth finish.
Perfect for classic Daiquiri.
It’s not rum but it’s made of rum. So if you look at it as a rum I would say it’s too fruity, too much like candy and a fruit liquor.
If you look at it as a rum based spirit it’s a nice drink for a warmer day. It’s light, has nice fruity flavors like apricot, vanilla, honey. Just a nice drink to share with friends who are into sweet wines or liquors and want a rum based drink.
