Sailor Jerry Rum Spiced

Sailor Jerry Rum Spiced 375ML     
Sku: 11738

Our recipe is based on the tradition of sailors improving the flavor of their on-board rum rations. (The first nation to abolish issuing sailors daily rum was the U.S., which did so in 1862. New Zealand upheld the practice until 1990). Generally there were two ways to take the edge off rum. One was to age the liquid in wooden casks, which sailors rarely bothered with. The other way was to blend in spices. This is what most sailors did and it’s what we do. Sailor Jerry was an exacting craftsman. His tattoos were precise, bold and flawless. Even the riggings on his clipper ship tattoos were nautically accurate. We craft our rum to a similar standard. Every year, a team of William Grant & Sons blending specialists travel to the Caribbean to inspect distilleries and identify the finest rums. The ones that make the cut are blended together to create the ideal base for our unmatched recipe of natural spices. Spiced rum is a blender’s game and it’s one we’re very good at. As a family distiller that started with whisky, we have some of the most talented blenders in the business. (How hard is it to be a blender here? We’ve only had 6 Master Blenders in 125 years). Our blenders may not have seagoing experience, but we feel confident they would have been welcomed aboard any 18th century ship simply based upon their way with rum. Our higher proof spirit is historically accurate. In fact, the term “proof” comes from the method whereby sailors could assure their rum rations weren’t being watered down. The ship’s captain would ladle out a sample from the day’s rum barrel in front of the men. He’d douse it with gunpowder, then give it a spark - if the rum was full strength, the powder ignited, giving sailors “proof” of the integrity of their rum. Our higher proof rum is ideal for holding the character and richness of our spices. It pulls everything together and actually makes the rum smoother.

Tasting notes
NOSE You’ll sense vanilla first and foremost, but take a few more nosefuls and you’ll note dry buttery toffee and a touch of cinnamon. TASTE Rich vanilla tones with warm hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. We’re extremely proud of the finish - long and dry with a balance of subdued sweetness and a hint of toasted toffee.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 86 points (Mar 2012)
Attractive honey/amber color. Big-time, assertive aromas of vanilla bean and cake frosting immerse the olfactory sense. In the mouth, the flavor profile features moderately spicy, smoky and semisweet tastes that last long into the aftertaste.
