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

    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!!

    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

    YES! This stuff is amazing. Just like old school sailor jerry's. Happys days!

    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.
