Foursquare is one of the only spiced rums I've drunk which isn't sweetened with sugar cane syrup which lets the rum and spice speak for themselves.

On the other hand, Cruzan is one of the few spiced rums made with aged rum, 2 years, which makes a serious difference in a molasses-based spiced rum.

so when i run the "types" list of spiced rums, i show about 22..

are they all crap except these 3 you have mentioned?

as a rum "noob", i admit i like the spice aspect of Captain Morgan (Private Stock is better) and Bacardi Spice, but when i taste some of the better rums, i can tell how much better they are... but i miss the "spice" aspect sometimes...

You might be surprised to know that rum distillers can legally add flavorings to there spirits, spices are only one common ingredient. Some of the more common flavorings are orange, raisins and raisins, chocolate and coffee are also used in some countries.

i settled in and enjoyed it....

Try some Cruzan Estate Dark Run also,

2yr, 5yr Diamond Estate, and the Single Barrel.

Very Good, IMHO if you like a Spiced Rum. :biggrin:
