Made with a blend of Caribbean rum flavoured with spices, sugar, vanilla and Persian limes, this is a premium strength ‘limited edition’ (exactly how limited is not stated) of Old J Spiced Rum.
Inspired by Admiral Vernon who on 21 August 1740 ordered that the daily half-pint tot of neat, high-proof rum issued to sailors on British ships be replaced with two servings of a one quarter of a pint, diluted 4:1 with water. He further dictated that lime juice and sugar were made available to add to this.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/06/2014


Clear, golden amber.


Cracked black pepper spirity spice, vanilla pods, lime cordial and butterscotch with toffee, almonds, pistachio, cinnamon and nutmeg.


Aggressive spirit, hot chilli and cinnamon spice with vanilla and lime zest. Addition of water reveals buttery toffee popcorn.


Beyond the fire lies a balanced lightly sweetened spiced rum. Perfect for floating on Tiki cocktails.
