Proof66 Notes

Kirkland Signature brands is a line dedicated to—as well as owned and managed by—Costco, the warehouse member retailer that has had a large liquor inventory for some time. 

Kirkland Spiced rum is produced out of the LeVecke Corporation of California, a company who imports, blends, and bottles several different varieties of rum. It is bottled at a relatively high 92 proof relative to the peer group of spiced rums on the market (making it plausibly an even better value from that standpoint) and to our mind signals it would stand up well in dilution; say, for example, the colas that are ever popular mixers with spiced rum.

Don't let the low price fool you- this is amazing rum. Few rums get the amount of vanilla and caramel that is almost overwhelming here. Goes down smooth and mixes well in any spiced rum drink. I wish kirkland would bring a silver rum out.

Seriously how is this rated so high? Did costco bribe the judges in these competitions? Its the only explanation. Sailor Jerry's beats this hands down. Even the description suggests its from the cruzan rum facility and yet the cruzan spiced rum is listed as 461. Precisely why would cruzan sell higher quality rum to a competitor?

Proof66 Staff (2015-06-04):
Hi! Proof66 staff editor here. Appreciate your comments! We've interviewed judges and are pretty sure they're not bribed. The rum might come from Cruzan but the owners can, and often do, adjust the flavors so the recipe would be different. This rates higher than Sailor Jerry at the moment mostly because Kirkland's double-gold award was more recent (2015 vs 2013). To maintain a high rating, Kirkland will have to continue to perform! Otherwise, the score will drop. Our point system isn't perfect but we try to make sure it reflects a sturdy guide. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Amazingly smooth and a nice bouquet. Unless you are a rum snob, you will find this rum an exceptional value. I do mix it, but if you like a smooth shot, it works well for that as well.

This was the second bottle of Kirkland liquor that I have purchased and I am impressed with both. You certainly get more than your money's with with this spiced rum. It tastes better than more expensive brands. Good flavor easy to drink. Very impressed.

Quite possibly the worst rum I have ever bought or even tasted. It is like lighter fluid. I tried to return it but California does not allow returns once opened. The bottle is cool looking which i s why I bought it. I will use it to add booze to rum punch on second batch after everyones taste buds are blasted,
