Spiced Rum

"Old J's classic combination of spices, sugar, vanilla & lime makes Admiral Vernon's the best tasting liquid in the spiced rum category in my humble opinion!" - Tom Hurst Old J Creator.

Don't take our word for it see what our customers have said about Old J:

"Oh de-lish-us... really like it." - Simon Rimmer - Presenter on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch.

"It's Bloomin Lovely." - Dave Gorman, stand up comedian and tv, radio presenter.

Featured in Top Brand Launches of 2012 - The Publican's Morning Advertiser.

"@oldjspicedrum Nearly finished my bottle off wi my Jamaican mate who says it's as good as back home which is high praise indeed." - Jon McClure from Reverend&TheMakers on www.twitter/oldjspicedrum.

"YES YES YES YES YES!!! OH MY GOD!! Thank you!! The taste is spot on, My life feels complete once more." - Kathryn Wright - Old J customer review on www.facebook/oldjspicedrum

In 1740 Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navy's rum ration. When his men complained, Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to make the drink more enjoyable.

"Old J" has been created in honour of this unlikely mixologist who was known as "Old Grog". "Old J" however brings Vernon's concept into the 21st Century by using the finest Caribbean Rum combined with our Secret Blend of spices, sugar, vanilla & lime.

Perfect served over ice with coke or ginger beer and a couple of fresh lime wedges. Top Tip: Drag a lime wedge around the top of the glass before serving.

Nose: A blast of vanilla and lime.

Palate: Well rounded spice and toffee, cut through with limey goodness .

Finish: Sweet, smooth vanilla.

Very nice Spiced Rum, a nice ambience of Vanilla. Well worth a try

For the price you can't get much better than Old J - it's probably even better than the original Sailor Jerries mix (and far better than the new mix!).

Hands down my favourite rum. Every person I give this too thinks it tastes like a different childhood sweet they recall, but to me it just tastes like caramel and vanilla with a splash of lime that cuts through the sweetness perfectly. It's rare I find a drink I can enjoy neat on the rocks, but this one I find easy to enjoy. I only wish more pubs stocked it!

I still have a bottle of the old Sailor Jerry's and was waiting for something to replace it before I drunk any. I'm glad I read the reviews and bought a bottle of Admirals. The Admirals nose is slightly stronger and taste test, I prefer Admirals. Great rum at a great price, just hope that Admirals stays around for a long time.

This rum is exactly what I was looking for!! It tastes almost identical to the old recipe sailor jerry but it is not quite as sweet which I prefer as I found the old recipe sailor jerry was so sweet it could become sickly. Absolutely lovely rum with vanilla cinnamon and lime flavours bursting through, I will be ordering another bottle :)
