Comparison with Spiced Rums

Below we compare spiced rums with Captain Morgan Original Spiced, which has an average price of $16. We rate this rum 5/10.

The spiced rum with the best price/quality ratio is Bayou from Louisiana. It maybe $5 to $7 more expensive than Oakheart, Captain Morgan or Sailor Jerry rums, but it is well worth its cost.

Bacardi-Oakheart

1. Bacardi Oakheart Smooth Spiced Rum – $11

Rating: 6/10

As with many of Bacardi’s rum varieties, Oakheart feels like it was born with Coca-Cola in mind. Specifically, Oakheart pairs “just okay” with a cola because it has just enough vanilla and spice notes to create a some character, but not too much to cover up other notes.

Otherwise this spiced rum is not worth its money. You can read here about Bacardi rum price/quality comparison with other rums.

Sailor-Jerry-Spiced-Navy-Rum

2. Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Navy Rum – $15

Rating: 6/10

Sailor Jerry’s differs from the vanilla flavor monotony on the spiced rum market. It has notes of cherry and caramel that combine with background vanilla, some cinnamon and traces of nutmeg. Like Captain Morgan and Bacardi Oakheart, Sailor Jerry is ideal as a cocktail mixer, as long as the bartender makes sure that the rum supports the cocktail. Definitely not a sipping rum.

Kraken black Spiced Rum

3. Kraken Black Spiced Rum – $18

Rating: 6.5/10

The Kraken Black is a flavored rum that has intense chocolate and caramel flavors. It an aromatic blend of several Caribbean distillates that is suitable for mixed drinks.

It is quite sweet and has many flavors. So, to a limited extent, it can be enjoyed neat.

bayou-spiced-rum

4. Bayou Spiced Rum – $20

Rating: 8.5/10

This American rum, can easily compete with the Caribbean competition. The Bayou Spiced rum has a warm, spicy and pleasantly sweet, powerful yet balanced taste. The addition of spices gives it even more expressiveness and finesse. Perhaps this rum benefits from the fact that it is produced with great attention in small batches.

captain-morgan-private-stock

5. Captain Morgan Private Stock Rum – $24

Rating: 7/10

Captain Morgan’s Private Stock is supposed to represent something high quality in its portfolio. While it certainly is a clear winner among its brothers, it is nothing great as a spiced rum for its price. Why? Mostly because it is too sweet.

Otherwise, it is full of notes of vanilla and caramel, with hints of oak and fruits.

Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced Rum

6. Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced Rum – $24

Rating: 8/10

Brinley is a family company based on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts that originally specialized in flavored rum. And its spiced rum is an award-winning blend. The starting point is a four-year-old Guyana rum matured in oak barrels. The natural flavors of the rum include Madagascar vanilla, cloves, nutmeg and orange peel.

chairmans-reserve-spiced-rum

7. Chairman’s Reserve Spiced Rum – $28

Rating: 8/10
