Perhaps because of it's slightly lower ABV, this is a very smooth rum. Sips well, good flavour and goes down a little too quickly. I know it gets said a lot but you really can't go wrong with this. Yes, there are better rums but this is excellent value for money. I challenge you not to finish the bottle is short order.

A sweet and easy-drinking rum with a pleasant, homely nose and taste; smooth, with a finish that lingers briefly, yet long enough to savour the golden-brown sugary notes. Cockspur 5 Star is the opposite end of the spectrum from taste-bud thumping and throat-burning dark rum like O.V.D. Deliciously relaxing when sipped slowly.

I haven't been drinking rum for that long, but i have tried quite a few now, and for the price you definitely cant go wrong with this rum.

well priced rum suited as a mixer, can be enjoyed slowly sipped. Smooth and sweet.

A decent widely available standard mixing rum that can do no harm. Nice colour, reasonable flavour and no particularly nasty suprises afterwards. I rather like it and so does my wallet.
