Proof66 Notes

Cockspur VSOR ("very special old reserve") rum is a blend of aged rums of between 4 and 12 rums. The VSOR is a re-branding / repositioning of the Cockspur 12 rum, which still appears under that label in some regions of the world. Note that the "12" suggests not the minimum age statement (which would be the case in the world of whiskey) but rather suggestive of the oldest of the rums blended into the spirit.

Cockspur 12 Rum starts off well, but ultimately ends up disappointing. It is beautiful in the glass, a gorgeous dark amber color with medium body. The taste, unfortunately, let me down. It's very hot and rough for a blend of spirits aged so long. The flavor is dry and oaky, with a touch of vanilla. It has a bitter, almost leathery taste on the finish that I didn't care for. It has some nice complexity, but didn't really work for me. For the complete review, and more like it, please visit

A excellent choice if you are looking for a more complex rum but don't want anything that is too rich such as a Guatemalan or Venezuelan rum. Well made and well worth the money- try finding a spirit of similar age and quality in any other category..

At The Rum Project (link below), Sue Sea and I have enjoyed tasting and reviewing over 120 rums. This 12 year old Barbadian rum is yet another fine example of the style. The Cockspur 12 Year opens with a fine aroma of leather, cinnamon, ginger and spicy pepper. This rum was entirely consistent - the taste was hot, in a nice way...
