Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sailor Jerry’s Spiced rum is crafted from a blend of Caribbean rums that are blended and infused with spices and other flavors including vanilla and cinnamon.
The rum is produced by Sailor Jerry Ltd., a company founded to honor the sailor-turned-tattoo artist, Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins.
If I'm going sailing, its with my buddy Jerry.
Chances are if I've got only one bottle of rum in the house, It will be Sailor Jerry.
It is the go to rum for my roommate and myself.
whilst I do still try other rums, If I need a safe choice, I'll take Jerry.
the hint of Vanilla makes It go Especially good with Coke. (I mean, Vanilla rum and coke! heck yeah!)
However this doesn't limit it, I found That SJ makes quite a good Daiquiri
The Simplest Term to Describe SJ is that it is "Ghettolicious" It's Quite cheap. being only about a dollar or so more than your average to low end rum
Yet it just smells. tastes. mixes so well that I can't see myself grabbing something else consistently
I don't have enough room for all the sailor jerry tattoos I want because of the pleasure jerry has brought me and my top party companions.
This popular rum is really well marketed, and it's "OK", but may be a little over-rated. It's colour is a decent amber with a bit of a red tinge. It definitely smells of vanilla... I can't quite say what the spices are, besides vanilla, however I think I taste nutmeg/allspice and it has a bit of a harsh "peppery" finish, which I'm not too fond of. Good with a cola, but's there's so many other options...
Introduced to this by a Bother-in-law. A very nice spiced rum. Aroma is almost candy. That burnt sugar/caramel smell is a delight.
Sweet to the taste. Caramel, butterscotch and a touch of vanilla.I do get a bit of a tongue burn, but a smooth swallow with very sweet after taste. Real good with cola. Not at all bad with a rock - straight up
Really smooth, and flavourful. It makes your clothes fall off. lmao Must try!!
Sailor Jerry spiced has a lighter spice taste than some spiced rums, that doesn't make it a lightweight though.
I drink it with 7up, ice and a piece of lime. I love the vanilla and caramel undertones.
And the tattoo stickers under the label have become collectibles and are now decorating my fridge.
Not a bad Rum and a spicey one at that with a touch of vanilla and a kick like a mule but it is over priced compared with others of the same kind and that is its down fall.
Extremely strong & sweet vanilla aromas, vanilla again in mouth with leathery warm finish, tobacco there too.
In the end I was nicely surprised by this spiced rum. It is definitely not an everyday's rum as I would be rapidly fed up with the monotone flavour but an interesting once in a while sip...
It taste like drinking Vanilla Extract and Caramel/Butterscotch. Very drinkable on ice, mixes well with Coke if you want vanilla flavored coke. Quite sweet too.
It's good for the price, but it's definitely heavily vanilla flavored. After drinking GOOD $35 rum you quickly realize all the flaws with this one.
So perfect with diet Coke! So joyful after three drinks! Produces fantastic blackouts due to its 92 percent proof! Joy 1.25 drinks for the price of one! It is so smooth with dirt Coke! I am in love! The buz is Mellow and not as "drunk" as one would think. Drink it with an intention to get FUCKED UP LIKE NEVER BEFORE! I guarantee a slamming good time! Love you!
Predominant flavour of Vanilla, which I like, especially with Coke Zero which I find brings the flavour out more - I drop a stick of Cinamon into the bottle though as that's another flavour I like and after a couple of days its perfect for me.
I don't drink it neat, but as a mixer in a Cuba Libre its my go to Rum.
I love spiced rums for sipping straight up, and SJ was new to me this week. I was was quite pleased with it. The nose is a bit sleazy - like a cheap come on from the hula girl on the label. But the liquor is more refined than expected. Very forward caramel nose gives way to a nice, burnt sugar aftertaste. I would say SJ holds it's own against any spiced rum out there. Kraken is also good, though a bit sweeter. Pyrat's premium cask is a doozy, and their Reserve is delicious, but they are not spiced as far as I know. I rate SJ an 8 based on the competition, not an absolute scale of 9 being close to perfect, because I've yet to find a "perfect" spiced rum. I see that Bayou gets the highest rating here, so I will buy that next if I can find it. Takes me about 3-4 weeks to get through a bottle, so, I will hopefully discover Nirvana down on the Bayou. Until then SJ at the weekend house, and Pyrat and Kraken in the city will keep my feet up while I read about how DJT is going to either blow the world up and require we all lay in survival stocks (how many cases of Pyrat is the half life of Strontium-90?) or make America Great Again. I give the former a 0 and the latter a 10.
Spiced rum is a tough category, and if your going to buy it off the shelf of a standard liquor store, Sailor Jerry's is a fine choice, and will go great in cocktails. You could probably do better with El Dorado Spiced or Crusoe, or better yet make your own!
Sailor Jerry spiced and Ginger beer is a lovely drink, try the 'firery' ginger beer for an extra kick.
Wouldn't normally be trying a spiced rum like this, but adventures in tiki drink making brought me here. And it works wonderfully! Makes a great Krakatoa punch!
Rhum dégageant d'agréables arômes. Doux en dégustation
Wow..very nice.alot smoother then i expected.. alot of vanilla and almond flavor..will always keep a bottle..........or 2 of the sailor around...great rum
I go finally got around to drinking this and have to say it was nice. I would go as far as saying it's better than Capt. MORGANS spiced rum but depending on who you ask that is not saying much. Its all about whay you desire in a spiced rum. For me it was a hearty drink full of flavor and just enough bite. If anything it would make a great mixer. Especially for a different breed of mojitos.
I glad to find so many spiced rums other than the Captain on shelves here. Sailor Jerry has done a nice job of sailing in a bit of a different direction. The spice is much bolder. I notice the bottle on this site shows as 80 proof but we have a much higher octane on our shelves. Also not sure what they mean by "The Original", are there other versions? I haven't seen anything but 96 proof and that grade detracts a bit for me; perhaps saying more about me as a wimp. The strong alcohol burn is not what I seek in a rum but I like most else about it. The back story is great with one of the tattoo artist's hula girls on the label but its only a story; the rum is what counts most.
Very good rum....But strong....
Preferred over Captain Morgan
This is a solid rum however I have found it really only works well with Coke or Pepsi.
What you'll be getting is a smooth spiced rum that does what is says on the tin.
The only downfalls I had was that I am now stuck in an eternal internal debate between Sailor Jerry and Red Leg. You have no idea how many people I've held up in my locals spirits section. (In my defence, putting them next to each other is just asking for trouble)
Some were meh and some were really good. This one really stands out for me as the smoothest and overall nicest tasting. It is not until November that we will be back in the Caribbean to restock and try new ones. That said, Sailor Jerry may still be in the top of the pack for me.
