Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
Sailor Jerry Rum, Edison, New Jersey
Molassas, Spices
PROOF:  92 (46%) 
AGE: Not Applicable
TYPE: Flavored

PRICE: $18.00 - 750 ML

 

 

Notes: Considerably higher proof than Captain Morgan or Admiral Nelson (both are 70 proof or 35%), sourced from the Virgin Islands

Appearance: Clear, gold colored, no sediment whatsoever. On swirling, it leaves a thin, but tenacious clear coat on the inside of the glass, then develops some droplets on the edge line.

First Impression: Cherry, tobacco, vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, caramel. A lot going on here and fighting for attention. Caramel and cherry start to push to the fore after a bit.

Taste: Dark fruits and spices. Heavy bodied with lots of cherry and caramel followed by other spices.

Drinks: Stands up to almost everyother ingredient you throw at it in a umbrella drink. More assertive than most spiced rums, in a ponderous way.

Cigars: White Owl.

Final Thoughts: Frankly, I am not a flavored rum fan. I don't see the point. That being said, this is much better than a number of the other flavored rums out there I have had in the past. Also you are getting a higher proof for the same or less money than the ubiquitous Captain Morgan so we give it extra value points.

Bottle: Clear glass semi generic bottle like any number of other rum bottles. Simple paper labels on front and back. Has a 40's noir kind of feel.
