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.
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.
Where purely spiced rums are concerned, this is a gem. Very strong caramel flavor with a subdued, yet present and tasty spice flare in the throat to finish. An absolute must for any collection.
Nice alternative to other spiced rums; it's slightly more syrupy than most so the consistency is different. Great in more complex rum cocktails.
Mmmmm, delicious mixed and straight up. Fantastic nose!
The only spiced rum I can drink straight, naturally flavoured and surprisingly smooth given the price. Tastes like liquid candy and easily recommended for those looking for a sweeter experience. Don't mistake this for an aged rum of impeccable quality. It just tastes great at a very low price. Best spiced rum I've ever had.
I was expecting this to be a perfect rum for my rum and cokes, however it failed to deliver. It is extremely smooth and has a good amount of spice to it, however, it made the coke seem almost flat because it was so smooth. When mixed with a cola, this rum lost all of its beautiful body and characteristics. Sad to see this not be the perfection I had envisioned, however, it is a good sipping rum if you want something with a bit of spice to it.
From a brand I've never heard of before this is a delicious spiced rum. Stars with a fantastic deep amber color, the aroma of an awesome spiced rum. Nice bite at the start but a smooth spiced middle with small hints of vanilla at the end. Great for mixing or sipping on its own!
Very nice rum. Excellent nose and finish. $20 you will be very impressed with the depth and character of this rum.
I think I stumbled upon this one based on the reviews I read here. I put this one way up toward the top of my list. For what its worth some aspects I prefer over The Kraken and others over Sailor Jerry which are also high on my list of would buy again. I have done several taste test where I sample a flight of rums around and around and this one rises to the top every time. Some days my taste buds are different but Shipwreck seems to be tasty all of the time. I believe the price was a bit more favorable than the competition as well.
I must admit that I am not a fan of spiced rums. I don't get it. The added flavors all but drown out the underlying taste of this rum.
This is the third Brinley Gold Shipwreck rum I have reviewed and it is by far the best of the three. But still not a great rum. As spiced rums go it's pretty good but there are others I prefer. This one has more of a spiciness as in pepperiness that rapidly approaches after tasting the initial sweetness. This then turns into a burn that starts on the tongue then slowly moves down the throat. It's been aged for 4 years according to the label but it doesn't really show it. Tried it in some Coke Zero and the think I noticed is that the vanilla flavor is more noticeable while the other spices are muted. Odd. I would like to try this in some mixers calling for spiced rum.
Elegant...yes... so easy and smooth. O00I FO$9((
One of my favorite mixers, great for satisfying the caribbean cravings. Awesome rum for the price and I love the story behind the brand!
This is smooth with vanilla, caramel, clove, orange, and a touch of oak. A little weak by my standards but enjoyable non the less. I bought a case at the beginning of summer for mixing by the pool and I'm down to 2 bottles. . . Time to start looking for more!
There is a rum bar in the gold Coast that has this rum and I go there just to have a drink
I can't find in the shop so I will be back for a drink next time in town
this rum is similar to Mcoys rum aged 4 years. This rum doesn't really go well with coke I believe, I think its better with orange/pineapple juice perhaps it def. has some sweetness to it you do taste the vanilla and although it doesn't have any caramel in it it does somewhat taste like caramel. others have said it could run captain morgan out of business however no I don't believe so capatain morgan by far is greater than this (mixed wise) because it is aged I think its better off sipping it straight rather than mixing because the taste doesn't really mix well with coke again this rum is very similar to Real McCoy rum and that rum is usually meant to sip straight as well they are both aged 4years and have the similar taste
