After the discontinuation of the old recipe of Sailor Jerry, I along with many other fans of the rum were devastated. Faced with a future of boring spiced rums, I started to search for a replacement. After hearing rumours of a similar tasting rum to "Old Sailor Jerry", I just had to investigate. I read many reviews of Old J on a few forums and even this site and I knew I just had to buy a bottle!!
I must say, I was not disappointed!! Upon opening the bottle, that familiar sweet vanillary scent hit my nose and I wondered if this was too good to be true. I tasted it and I was instantly taken back to the first time I tried the old recipe Sailor Jerry!! At last, our search is over. At last, there is a vanilla and lime spiced rum once again!!!!
Thank you Whiskey Exchange for stocking this perfect spiced rum and providing an excellent service.

Really nice, smooth and sweet, as mentioned before, just like if not better than the original Sailor Jerry

Received my bottle yesterday and i have to say it smells like no rum i have ever had before (unfortunately i never had the pleasure of tasting the old Sailor Jerry's) Very sweet on the nose and excellent when mixed with coke. would thoroughly reccomend

The spirit of old recipe Sailor Jerry lives on! Slightly sweeter and weaker in alcohol content than the original, but when mixed with coke, this stuff is indistinguishable from the original.

It's finally in! Absolutely love this stuff - it's the closest thing to old Sailor Jerry's. If you miss old Sailor Jerry's you cannot afford to pass this up!

Take the cap off, close your eyes and inhale....Old Sailor Jerry scent will fill your nose. The guy's done good creating this!!!

The closest thing to the orignal sailor jerrys you can get, just slighty less vanilla flavour than the original. Worth a purchase if you miss the old sj or are a spiced rum fan.
