One of the many bottlings chasing after the flavour of the last generation of spiced rum, and one that comes pretty close. Rich and sweet with a fair whack of vanilla in the mix.

Caribbean Blend

    Always been a Sailor Jerry fan until trying Old J Spiced at my local. Absolutely blew my tastebuds away with the combination of flavours. Must have a bottle... or seven.

    Great tasting spiced rum. Nice vanilla flavor. Best I’ve tried. Great service from the whiskey exchange

    One of the best spiced rums about. Perfect with ginger beer and lime, compliments the rum to perfection.

    Bought this rum as a Christmas present for my Son, who usually drinks a spiced rum, this one is really different, having a vanilla smell and taste and he loved it - even preferring it to his usual tipple. As a non-rum drinker (having only every tried the old traditional types), even I found this a pleasant drink....may even give it a go myself!

    Got to start by saying I love this drink! In fact, this for now will be my benchmark & the Spiced Rum to beat! It smells amazing, like cream & vanilla mixed into one, and tastes even better! A single measure mixed with coke tastes deliciously sweet, because of the smooth vanilla infused with the Caribbean Rum.

    Comparing it to a new recipe Sailor Jerry makes you miss the old one more. However a really good copy and one of my faves. Only reason not a 5 as I find the lime flavour a little fake but don't let that put you off.

    Amazing, have just now purchased my 3rd and 4th bottles. Goes very well with Pepsi Max and lots of ice. Used to get the old sailor jerry every chance I had but this is definitley the next best thing.

    Like most we miss the old sailor jerry. LWC have realised that left a gap. Easy to drink, I''ve still got a smidge of old SJ left. I don''t think it''s as good as SJ but it''s so close who cares. Well done long live the Admiral!!
