Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I was really surprised by this rum. I occasionally buy something ive never tried before, but shipwreck has made its way into my regular rotation. Great caramel flavor, but not overpowering. I definitely recommend you try it.
Very strong vanilla taste. Great in pina colada or a Coke. Good for sipping alone, too - if you like vanilla.
Great flavor to it for sipping on the rocks or mixing with coke!
I was scouring the shelves in the local Total Wines and More store, when the store manager engaged me in a discussion of rums. Spiced rum is just low quality rum with artificial flavorings added to mimic high quality aged rums he said. Makes sense, but I tried Brinley's Shipwreck Spiced Gold anyways, I was looking for a better quality mixer. This is it, it is delicious. It is very similar in spices to Captain Morgan; with vanilla, nutmeg, and black pepper finish. But less burn, tastes much higher in quality, and mixed with Coke or fruit juice was outstanding. This is not a sipping rum, step up to Plantation XO 20 to sip perfection; but this spiced rum is the perfect mixer.
Absolutely perfect flavor. Sweet smooth with a vanilla and caramel body. Perfect color. Bottle presentation is fantastic. Makes me feel like I am back in the Caribbean again
Fairly sweet. Not as much vanilla as others. Good mixed with cola
Not bad for a spiced rum. Was told it was one of the best spiced rums
Nice sweetness with vanilla, banana qualities. Easy going mixer. Caramel notes for a decent priced rum and option from captain.
Smooth, full of flavor, and reasonably priced. Not widely available in my area, so I always grab a bottle when I see it.
When looking for a spiced rum I have always gone with Captain Morgans and loved it. Then I tried this wonder full spiced rum. I will always keep a bottle of Captain on hand for my friends who enjoy it but this is my new favorite spiced rum.
Move over Captain Morgan: you have been shipwrecked! Lovely, lovely taste. Great winter rum. A little sediment in the bottom of the bottle, but nothing to worry about. Would recommend this rum to anyone drinking CM, and have given a bottle or two as gifts which has always been well received.
An all time favorite - this is delicious especially enjoyed neat. Fantastic example of a spiced rum that combines flavors such as brown sugar, caramel and some citrus notes with a smoothness going down. Caramel is prominent . Delicious aroma as well.
No imitation fillers.
Highly recommend !
This is a fine example of a spiced rum that combines complex flavors such as baking spices, brown sugar, caramel and some citrus notes with a smoothness going down.
No imitation garbage thrown in or caramel color to make it look like your drinking a fine gold rum.
For $20-$25 this is a great rum for a party if your wanting some good flavor and something a little different from your basic popular brands like Bacardi or Captain Morgan.
This rum is incredibly smooth. Has a nice bite going down and makes ya feel warm. I honestly could keep drinking this until it's empty but won't (and neither should any of you ;) ). On the other hand, I think it might be a bit sweeter than I like but it's remedied with a squeeze of lime. Overall, fantastic sipping rum for a decent price (23$ in GA). Can't wait to mix it!
One more thing, it's 36% abv (72 proof) and I wish it could have been a bit higher. Oh well.
This stuff is amazing, it makes me re think what little I thought I new about rum, admittedly I have not had a lot of the really high priced rums but this is far and away the best affordable (less than $50/bottle in my area) I have ever had and it's not even close. It's a sweet rum that balances the sweetness and spice perfectly for my taste and is really smooth. Even if I were to find a more expensive rum that I liked better it would be extremely hard to supplant this given it's price point.
Wife bought this on a whim. Very impressed. Very mellow and smooth.
I bought a bottle of this just based on reviews I have read. Needless to say ive ordered two more bottles and they are on their way as I type. Brinley Gold Shipwreck exceeded my expectations completely. Super Smooth and tastes delicious. Very Reasonably priced as well.
I recommend you give it a try!
This goes down smooth with a wonderful aroma, mixes well
Not as spicy as I would have hoped. The vanilla was strong enough to make me wonder if I had the wrong rum. Fairly robust with good after burn
This inexpensive run holds its own with bottles that are twice as expensive. Smooth on the rocks with an iced vanilla aftertaste this is an easy sipper that will please many.
Looking for the perfect rum to add to your after-dinner coffee? This spiced rum is not that tasty on its own yet it mixes perfectly with strong black coffee. The vanilla and the spices, which are not harmonious when sipped neat, really shine when they meet the bean. Also does well in Painkillers. A good, if not great, spiced rum.
I used to be a real fan of spiced rums but then I became more and more educated. Now I appreciate rum for being just that....RUM, withoit additives. However, Brinley Gold does start with a fine quality base and the spices and flavors are blended perfectly. I love the vanilla, toffee, cinamon and peppery taste that this provides. I can still taste rum too. Slight burn but a very pleasant finish.
My favorite rums are aged rums, but this is one of the best spiced rums I've tried. I even prefer this to the Kraken Black Spiced Rum, which is another one of my favorite spiced rums.
Has a nice sweet flavor, typical of Brinley Gold rums, which also smells and tastes of caramel, vanilla, molasses, and spice! Perhaps a bit weak at 36%abv, but tasty for a spiced rum nonetheless.
