Introduced in Summer 2010, Elements Eight Spiced is perhaps the first super-premium spiced rum, infused with a variety of fruits and spices including cinnamon, ginger, vanilla and honey. Judging by the rave reviews this seems to have raised the stakes in a very lucrative category - replacing the old Sailor Jerry recipe as the must-have spiced rum.
Couldn't disagree more with the 1st reviewer, this stands head and shoulders above any spiced rum I have ever tried. It boasts an amazingly well balanced and nuanced blend of flavours in which you will notice different notes with every sip. Just breathing in the richly exotic nose is a real pleasure. I think it is actually very good value considering it's both a peach of a sipping rum and gorgeously presented in its tall, striking bottle.

I tried this at a local bar and I have to say I'm glad I sampled it before buying a bottle.
It's a decent enough spiced rum, but there are plenty of equal quality spiced rums, though with a different balance of flavours, available cheaper and definitely superior rums available for £30.
The flavour is too heavily influenced by the honey for my tastes, leaving a sweetness not sufficiently balanced by the subtler cinnamon and ginger.

A very unique Spice Rum. The infusion of honey seems to give it a sweet Honeysuckle pollen aroma/taste. Makes a great Cuba Libre.
