Introduced in Summer 2010, Elements 8 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.
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.
