Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A good bit if harshness, and not a lit if flavor, but good for mixing.
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.
If more people tried this rum Captain Morgan would be out of business.
Genuine spices and flavors - as is the case with the entire Brinley's line, all of which I highly recommend. Rich, thick mouthfeel. Very drinkable on its own but excellent in mixed drinks too.
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.
Cheap and not well known yet so good! A little bit too sweet maybe but I can live with that)
It's hard to get in Europe though. I hope it gets more popular here.
Read about this rum in a top spiced rums piece . Graded out to be second best so I had to try it. Ended up being one of my favorite mixers for sure. Smooth and strong vanilla hints which I like. For sure a great choice.
A nice, smooth taste without any overpowering touches. Something I could see becoming a nice standby.
I had no expectations and I am so pleasantly surprised. I don’t normally love spiced rum but this is a nice caramel vanilla that doesn’t overdo it. It’s very smooth. Would definitely recommend
Just a basic spiced; better than Capt. Morgan's, but not as good as homemade.
This is a good choice when a spiced rum is called for in a cocktail or the next time someone asks you to pick up Captain Morgan grab this instead.
If i spend my money on something i want to enjoy it. This is worth my my hard earned cash.
A smooth spiced rum.not overwhelming for taste and had a nice aroma.
First tried a couple years ago and still my go to for spiced rum. Not aggressive and lots of flavour woothout being overwhelming
A true spiced rum. Tastes of hints of coconut, vanilla, and nutmeg. I’m glad I found this one, I highly recommend over most rums in this price range
I went to a well stocked rum bar today to try 5 different rums with a half ounce pour each. This one was quite a surprise and came in second. The aroma and gentle spices on the palate are truly captivating. There was no after burn, but I don't know how long ago the bottle had been opened on the bar. I was able to sip this one neat and finished my pour before the fifth rum was offered to me. If I finally find a bottle of this one, I will gladly buy it. Having tried and liked their Coconut rum also gained my trust in this company from St. Kitts.
I don't usually drink spiced rum. This was actually given as a gift but I really enjoy this rum. My fear was it would be too sweet and flavoured like a captain's but this is not the case.
A very easy drinker, would be a good first sipping rum. Great on the rocks
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced Rum bottle and label design looks very cheap and low end. Strong alcohol, vanilla and caramel coming through to the nose and palate. Quite a harsh burn at the end, so better to mix it up with your favorite soda.
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.
