BlackBeard Spiced Rum - Review

BlackBeard Spiced Rum (86-Proof). This Puerto Rican rum has light amber color with mahogany hues. The aroma is decidedly vanilla-centric, with layers of sweet butterscotch, cinnamon, bananas and caramel. On the palate it opens up quickly, true to the initial aroma, showcasing first the spices (nutmeg and cinnamon), followed by intense Crème Brûlé and finishes with a sweet, spicy and unctuous feeling. The aftertaste is clean, on the sweet side and has mild hints of wet oak.

Mixing the rum with an equal amount of water helps open up the aroma for an easier and deeper assessment. The rum is perfect as a mixer and is another great product from Destilería Serrallés. Click here to learn more about BlackBeard.

I agree. It isn't bad for a mixer. I enjoy it with coke.
