Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Unbelievably smooth. Normally I drink spiced rum with coke but the taste is too nice to mix - tad overdone with the vanilla though.
I bought a bottle of RedLeg Spiced Rum during my last trip to London. It was my first taste of the drink. My first impression was of the fantastic packaging - an appealing logo and hand-drawn design, and a nicely shaped bottle. On opening the bottle I was struck by the wealth of aromas - strong but not overwhelming. The ginger really comes through, which is great because I love ginger. I enjoyed RedLeg both straight and with mixers. No doubt it is my favourite rum now.
Red Leg Spiced rum is five star delicious rum. No cocktail cabinet should be without a bottle of Red Leg Spiced Rum.
My absolute favourite! Excellent to mix or enjoy straight!
Found this for about $13, and have to say I was amazed. It's a good spiced rum! Good enough to enjoy straight, perhaps easier to drink with a splash of some mixer. Will buy again!
It's ok, if you're happy to experiment and try different rums then this one is worth a go. After a bottle I see no need to revisit as there are so many more to try.
Nice in cocktails or with ginger and lime, but has a dry, cheap flavour that isn't really that impressive. Sweet, heavy on ginger and a whiff of vanilla essence. It is understandable how the mainstream market could like it as overall it isn't that 'bad', it just isn't that impressive when compared to existing spiced rums.
Was given a bottle recently as a gift, its enjoyable, but nothing special still.
Confused by the people that say it's strong on vanilla, and I'm a 'super taster'.
Smooth rum and well balanced, get tropical fruits and spices coming through. However the prominent flavour is vanilla. Sweet but not as sweet as other spiced rums I have tasted.
I find rums I drink follow my mood a bit and if looking for a spiced and slightly sweet rum, almost liqueur like
well you won't go far wrong with this one.
Everything about this rum is top quality, the sweetness and the amazing aromas. Drink it on its own and it's soo easy to drink, with ice it's just even more smooth and cool. Try with some ginger coke for a easy party drink that everyone will love. All for £15.....Perfect.
Superb value. Sweet vanilla flavours, my "go to" spiced.
Sehr helles Bernstein im Glas.
Sofort spring einem die Vanille in die Nase, gefolgt von Karamell und leichten Holznoten. Auch Aromen von frischen Früchten, Bananen, Gewürzen und Ingwer sind mit dabei.
Im Gaumen zwickt einem der Ingwer und die Alkohol Schärfe gehörig in die Zunge, dabei wurde sie doch von der Vanille gestreichelt.
Im Abgang recht kurz und unwirklich.
Sicherlich ein netter Rum für Liebhaber dieser Art. Mit natürlichen Aromen und nicht so süss.
Very light amber in the glass.
Immediately, the vanilla will pop into your nose, followed by caramel and light wood notes. Also aromas of fresh fruits, bananas, spices and ginger are included.
On the palate, one of the ginger and the alcohol sharpness pinches in the tongue, while they was stroked by the vanilla.
In the finish quite short and unreal.
Certainly a nice rum for lovers of this kind. With natural flavors and not so sweet.
Tried the Red Leg Spiced rum on a very rainy Sunday evening and it did not bring me a Caribbean vibe. Very light brown color, definitely some artificial coloring being used. Artificial flavors over power the nose. Cinnamon overload when tasting it. Long burn at the end, and its only 37.5%, so better to skip this one.
I'd put this almost on a par with Rebellion. Whereas that one is very sweet, this one is medium-sweet with a big ginger kick. This one is tangy, that one is warming. They are both high up on the list of good quality, reasonably priced rums (roughly £20 or less). This is easily drunk neat or on the rocks, but it also goes well with coke as that will sweeten it a bit and the ginger will still come through very nicely.
After ginger, the main flavours are mixed-spice and a subtle hint of vanilla. There's also a hint of something citrusy, maybe orange. Blimey, what's with people going about heavy vanilla? If you want heavy vanilla try Admiral J, Rolling Calf or Pink Pigeon. Ginger is several times stronger than vanilla here. If it's an anything bomb (which it isn't), it's a ginger bomb.
I'd say it was much more interesting than the rather dull Sailor Jerry and the even duller Foursquare, but Rebellion has the edge on it if you like sweet spiced rums. Elements 8 has more depth and complexity and a better base, but it's a lot more expensive; Chairman's Reserved Spice is better but also less of a session rum than this in that this is light and that is very rich.
Spiced rum is always a hit or miss for me. In case of red leg we have an almost Bull's-eye. I love the branding and the subtle vanilla and ginger taste of this rum. Even if your preference goes to other styles of rum I can definitely recommend adding this one to your collection
What a legendary spiced drop! Super smooth on the rocks, only real way to enjoy this rum.
Delicious spiced flavours!
Ok flavours with hints ginger and vanilla but a little to harsh on the throat to be a sipping rum. Best drunk as a mixer.
Smooth, well balanced and unique.
Would and have served in cocktails and on the rocks. Have also then promptly hid them for my own personal consumption before anyone gets any wise ideas.
Would recommend putting your relatives off rum with cheap, store-band rum to minimise the risk that could befall your bottle of Red Leg.
I bought this in tesco on a budget and now on my third bottle. Find it difficult to drink some rums straight but this was incredible on its own not even with ice. You can taste the vanilla and ginger. Smooth rum and haven't had better!
Very vanilla in flavour and taste nice with vanilla coke and ice.
A bouquet of spices, ginger, then alcohol. Swallow easily, tongue and mouth burns slightly, syrupy sweetness, spices, then there is bitterness. Easy to drink, but more suitable for cocktails. In my head it becomes turbid, my stomach is hot, but my desire to continue does not go away.
Vanilla is the main element of its aroma and taste. Also like design of this bottle.
definitely a rum for those exploring rum without coke or mixers as its sweet vanilla flavours arent overbearing. really good drink for newbie rum drinkers!
In its price range, this is a decent Spiced Rum. It is very smooth and does a good job with Ginger beer and lime. I would stay away mixing this with coke as its sweetness can be a bit overwhelming.
Might buy again.
