Tried a glass of Cargo Cult Spiced rum and all you get is a cinnamon blast. Cinnamon to the nose, more cinnamon to the palate and a very long cinnamon finish. This Oceanian spiced rum is made with rums from Papua New Guinea and Fiji that are blended and spiced in Australia.
One of the most subtle spiced rums on the market

This is the antithesis of something like Bristol Black Spiced or Dark Matter - the spices are very held back. This rum has no added sugar either, so it's purely reliant on a good mix. I think all of the spices in this are pretty much in balance and none of them are overpowering. You can taste the rum through it easily. It's quite expensive and I could understand if some people who like spiced rum found it a little too subtle. You may say, if you;re a spiced run drinker, "well why not just buy a good rum for the same price, since this has such a subtle spiced taste?" I can see that argument, but the rum does have a nice spice to it and maybe it's more about saying that this maybe a good spiced rum for those who don't normally like spiced rum. T
