Customer Rating
This is the latest version of Sailor Jerry rum, which was re-formulated in early 2010 to bring it into line with the US recipe. This version contains less vanilla and lime than the previous edition and is more popular with bartenders. Try with cola or ginger beer with a squeeze of fresh lime, or mix with Red Bull for a 'Popeye'.
Caribbean Blend

    Really boring. Nothing more

  • Jason's Scotch Whisky Reviews 22 May 2012

    "Nose" Huge vanilla, oak, molasses, leather scent of an old baseball mitt, and egg nog. "Palate" Big vanilla of the nose, comes through mightily on the palate, chased by oak, brown sugar, chewy cedar, and maple sugar. "Finish": Nice long lasting flavors of spiced caramel, drying on the palate leaving balsa wood. The spiciness on the finish is reminiscent of a good measure of nutmeg you taste in egg nog.

    This drink is bland and boring compared to the old flavour in my opinion. There are a lot nicer rum's on the market at present. If you want to try a nice tasting sailor jerry rum the whisky exchange do have some stock of the original -

    This stuff is not as bad as some people say, I tried this first and have recently bought some 5cl mini bottles off ebay of the original, I agree with why people are annoyed at it being discontinued as its lovely compared to this! but if you've never had Sailor Jerry you'll find this ok, but in all honesty I find Captain Morgan's Spiced my favourite and have just bought a bottle of Bacardi Oakheart, which is quite nice neat! I still need to try mixed... going to try the Kraken next!

    This stuff is tasty,I found it smooth and pleasant.I will have to do some more : )

  • sailor cindy 17 June 2011

    New Sailor Jerry isn?t worth buying

  • Dan 20 April 2011

    New recipe is awful, without knowing the recipe had changed I knew something had changed for the worse.

  • Wan 2000 22 March 2011

    I too was shocked at the change in recipe - the best description I can come up with is as if someone mixed old Sailor Jerry with regular (cheap) dark rum. It still has a hint of that old flavour, but only when you squeeze a whole lime segment into it!It's by no means terrible, but I won't buy it out of principle. Well, plus spite and sheer annoyance at the loss of my favourite drink [sniff]

  • Christian - London 19 January 2011

    It’s become very popular in bars. I'd never even noticed it before. Why? Good marketing but I imagine mostly down to the great bottle re-design (making more of the hula girl, as vintage stuff is in fashion). That coupled with the catchy vintage sounding name just makes it a winner right now. It's as simple as that. I like it and most people that try it with me say it's very sweet anyway - so I do wonder what the old one tasted like!? Would like to have tried it

    I just tried SJ for the first time about 6 months ago here in the US and I like it; have bought several bottles in fact. I thought it was a little heavy on the vanilla though.

  • Liam P 21 December 2010

    Its an outrage!! Cant believe they have destroyed my favorite drink!!! My friend told me they had changed the recipe and it now tasted terrible, i didn't believe him and bought a bottle..... suffice to say after one drink I had to give it away! Very disappointed there sales may have gone up temporarily but when people open the bottles they will never buy it again! Shocking BRING BACK THE OLD RECIPE

  • Andy H 3 December 2010

    The old rum was excellent.I cannot believe that it is no longer available. the new one is indeed undrinkable !!Every bartender i speak to agrees. Please bring back the old receipe!!!!

  • d10de 18 November 2010

    I call bulls*** on "is more popular with bartenders" - every bar I've been into recently has said that thir sales of Jerry have dropped considerably since the new recipe was released.Seriously, I've heard of the expression 'shooting yourself in the foot', but it seems to me that the good people at SJ went straight for their own kneecaps when they thought this would be a good idea.

  • Nicky B 10 November 2010

    I have a bottle of the new stuff, it going down very very slowly, there's no chance I'll ever buy it again unless the recipe changes back to the original. Sucks! Friend bought back a bottle of 'Kweyol' rum from St Lucia for me, amazing stuff, trying to track it down to buy more online. Please all try, you wont be disappointed, I promise.

  • Anonymous 9 November 2010

    New one is undrinkable.I was introduced to the old recepie by my flatmate who has just returned to Australia after 11 years. Wanted to send him a case as a welcome home gift. Can anyone help....even a bottle!

  • HAMMERS901 26 October 2010

    i went to the rum festival at olympia this year and the sailor jerry stall was there. they said they will never bring back the original. they also said that the new one is very popular with more sales than the "original". Is this why all the supermarkets are selling it at discounted price. BRING THE REAL ONE BACK.

  • D aAdlington 13 October 2010

    My sales have dropped drastically since the change surely the suppliers stock has been affected as well please please please bring back the original people on ebay are trying to make a killing selling at well above purchase price. lets all campaign to the manufactures.
