Rumson’s Spiced Rum

The Data

Category   Rum/Rhum

Sub-Category   Spiced Rum

Origion   MA

Retail Price   $32

ABV   40%

In the Glass


Brilliant copper color with hints of amber.


The aromatics are hauntingly similar to the Rumson’s standard Rum with a greater focus on sweet vanilla, nutmeg, and golden syrup.


The palate is in full agreement with the nose offering a rich baking spice driven core supported by sweet butterscotch and sugar giving it body and weight. It’s a Christmas cake in a glass.

Intensity & Texture

Medium-bodied with waves of sweet spices and sugar notes while never becoming too sweet.

Cool Factor


The Rumson’s Spiced Rum is an interesting take on the category being firmly focused on exotic brown baking spices and vanilla.

Value Grade


This is not in the style of the mass-market Spiced Rum that we all know so well, rather a craft take on the category so please don’t price compare the two.


This is a fun and tasty take on the Spiced Rum category with a great aged Rum at its core, which is supposed to be the point. I like their take on Spiced Rum and would be even a bigger fan if it possessed a tart and savory accent to support the sweet core.

How to Enjoy

Serve over ice and add a lime slice to add a cool citrus edge. Instead of cola why not try this with a quality tonic as the pairing will take both beverages to a new place.
