Proof66 Notes

Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum was founded as an extension of a line of "Sailor Jerry's" tattoo and clothing business inspired by Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins from the 1950s--lifestyle that includes car enthusiasts, motorcycle enthusiasts, and butchers along with rockers, skateboarders, and tattoo-enthusiasts (to name a few). The rum was launched with the partnership of William Grant & Sons, who eventually bought the brand in 2008 after its surge in popularity, though Philadelphia-based Sailor Jerry Limited is quick to point out:

This used to be my favorite rum (would have been a 4 or 5 star review before) but they changed the recipe a little while back to differentiate it from the main competitor (Captain Morgan) and went for more spice and toned down the vanilla drastically. While I still keep a bottle on hand for something different in my cocktails sometimes, I thought it was a smoother and more enjoyable drink before

It's a fine mixer for your basic rum & sodas, actually tastes great with Dr. Pepper as an alternative to the standard Captain & Coke. Not bad blended with coconut water and fresh pineapple either, or just a little lime and tonic. If you're in a situation where options are limited, you could confidently get this and have an ok time. If you have options, I would take Cruzan spiced (only about 10 bucks), Captain Private stock, Brinley Gold or (if you can find it) the excellent Chairmans Reserve. Most of the praise comes from people that have tried little else in the way of spiced rum or alcohol in general, but it isn't that bad either.

I wasn't really excited about Sailor Jerry. It's ok, just nothing really interesting. It's good if you want a spiced rum that's better than the Captain.

Sailor Jerry's is overall a very good spiced rum. Its spiced almost perfect and is some of the smoothest rum you can get. There aren't very many rums that can match Sailor Jerry's in quality and fewer that can beat it. Sailor Jerry's is the standard by which all other rums should gauge themselves. Considering Sailor Jerry's price its hard to justify buying anything else.

Apparently in 2010 the formula was changed significantly. Captain Morgan Black is much better.

A bit harsh on its own, but very effective when mixed. A classic rum.

I really don't understand the high rating for this and I usually agree with the ratings here. I was really expecting a rich rum experience. This is thin and only average at best. There are much better options in this price range. Will not buy again.

Certainly a step above Captain, but I wouldn't say its specialty rum. Great for a mix in, and packs a little more punch than other rums.

If you want spiced rum I would venture here over morgan any day.... but this still cant hold mast against the Kraken. Sippable and a good mixer too. Not too sweet and decently spiced.

It just amazes me that this rum is n any top 20 list. If all youre into is mixing with cola, then I guess this is okay. Still, there are far better spiced rums out there (e.g. Foursquare). This stuff has flavors of vanilla and caramel that just taste fake and theres far too much of it added.

(3 out of 5). I'm admittedly not a huge fan of spiced rums, but this is pretty good and reasonably refined. Cheaper, better tasting and higher proof than Captain Morgan. If you're into mixing with spiced rum, it's hard to beat this for the price.

After gettting use to the unique kick, I would rate this a top choice for Spiced Rums. It out-performs the captain, that is common and not a true rum, more like a mix (as well as Smirnoff's, that is made by the same company).

A staple for me, it was one of the first few rums Ive ever tried. Mixes well with Coke and is amazing with Dr. Pepper or Mug root beer. Since its a 92 proof rum, itll get you where you need to go fast. It has a nice burn to it but is very smooth. If you are just starting to experiment with rum, give it a try.

For the price this has become my rum of choice to mix with coke. It has a nice smell to it and is smooth given the alcohol content.

Im a little confused by a few of the previous reviews that say they dont like spiced rum as a generality, but like this better than others but still give it 1 or 2 stars?? Anyway if you do like spiced rum I would recommend giving the Sailor a try. It has a strong nose of molasses and vanilla and of you try it straight you can really get that in the flavor too. At 94 proof it has 12% more abv in it than captain Morgan so it is much stronger and has a more harsh burn than other rums. With that being said if your a fan of rum and cokes than this is the rum for you. It lends its vanilla flavors to coke unlike any rum I have had before and is just amazing.

Excellent mixed in cream soda. I'm not even kidding! Captain Morgan wouldn't stand it's own in cream soda, but this rum is quite dense, it's a wonderful combo. Rather brash compared to other spiced rums, but the alcohol content is high.

SJ is a solid spiced rum with a kick. Its certainly a better buy than the larger mainstays in the price category, but it does have a bit of bite (burn), so be warned. Its similar to Blackheart, but without the strong cherry overtones of that one, and some added refinement. If you need a good spiced rum for mixing, that sips decently on its own, pick this up.

Love me some Sailor Jerry. Great mixer for a variety of beverages. This may seem weird, but it is outstanding with root beer. For such a high alcohol content it goes down smooth.

Frankly, I am not a flavored rum fan. I don't see the point. That being said, this is much better than a number of the other flavored rums out there I have had in the past. Also you are getting a higher proof for the same or less money than the ubiquitous Captain Morgan so we give it extra value points.

Robust color but a mild/weak palate. Absolutely no nose--perfect for underage drinkers attempting to hide their malfeasance. Spiced well; reminiscent of vanilla barrels.
