Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum 700ml

You'll sense vanilla first and foremost on the nose, but take a few more sniffs and you'll note dry buttery toffee and a touch of cinnamon.

Rich vanilla tones in the mouth with warm hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Sailor Jerry are extremely proud of the finish that's long and dry with a balance of subdued sweetness and a hint of toasted toffee.

Spiced rum is a blender's game and it's one they're very good at. As a family distiller that started with whisky, they have some of the most talented blenders in the business. (How hard is it to be a blender there? They've only had 6 Master Blenders in 125 years). Their blenders may not have seagoing experience, but they feel confident they would have been welcomed aboard any 18th century ship simply based upon their way with rum.

This 80 proof (40% alc.) higher proof spirit is historically accurate. In fact, the term 'proof' comes from the method whereby sailors could assure their rum rations weren't being watered down. The ship's captain would ladle out a sample from the day's rum barrel in front of the men. He'd douse it with gunpowder, then give it a spark if the rum was full strength, the powder ignited, giving sailors 'proof' of the integrity of their rum. Our higher proof rum is ideal for holding the character and richness of our spices. It pulls everything together and actually makes the rum smoother.
