Not just another spiced rum. Nice strong spice flavor
I really like this rum as compared to Captain. I find it much smoother without being as syrupy. I'm not a big fan of spiced rum but this is the one I'd chose if I had to pick one.
Very delicious when used as a mixer, surprisingly tasty with cola. Does feel slightly overspiced.
In a bind, this will do for mixers.
Don't let the labeling fool you. Wasn't a great spiced at all.
This rum is only good in drinks where the extra vanilla taste is not detrimental to the drink. The vanilla is too much.
This was the third spiced rum that I tried today and easily the worst. There is a saying when it comes to cooking that it is what you DON'T put into the pot that makes the dish great. Too much of anything placed into one pot is a recipe for disaster. This spiced rum has 9 spices, but I cannot distinguish a single one of them. All of them being combined winds up tasting like medicine. I will start my rating with a generous 5, but I am sure that this will gradually be lowered as the bottle is emptied very slowly. What else can one expect for only $10.
I love the branding behind this rum, putting the spices on the forefront. Though I have to say I'm not a big fan of spice blend. Fake vanilla and mace are on the front of the pallet, kind of off putting. It's right on the edge of something I wouldn't drink again.
Not a bad spiced rum to have with cola. Not one of my favorites, but a lot better than most.
But that's not saying much, fakey vanilla and spices make this go fairly well in coke but not something I would sip. I got a couple bottles for under $5 with a rebate a couple years ago and honestly don't know if I would buy again at that price, unless Foursquare and Brinley's Gold shipwreck suddenly became unavailable. Even then I would probably just buy Sailor jerry.
Had this after having the Bacardi oak heart and this was horrible in comparison. I am not a real spiced rum fan and this did not help
I purchased a bottle on several recommendations, I liked their Blackstrap so what could go wrong. For my taste buds it was maybe the worst fit so far. Strong medicine like taste and the vanilla and other spices tasted artificial with a strong aftertaste. Not my cup of tea or rum.
Had a rum tasting on Super Bowl Sunday. Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum bottle and label design looks quite low end. Strong alcohol and very artificial vanilla, pepper and cinnamon flavors to the nose and palate. Nasty burn at the end, so better skip this one altogether.
