Spiced rum is flavoured with a combination of spices, herbs, and many other local ingredients.
The spices used can vary, but common ingredients include cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla, and ginger.
Spiced rum can be made by infusing rum with the spices, or by adding a spice mixture directly to the rum. The rum is then typically aged for a period of time to allow the flavours to meld and deepen.
The resulting spiced rum has a rich and complex flavor profile, often characterized by warm and sweet notes from the spices. The specific combination of spices used can vary from brand to brand, giving each spiced rum its own distinct taste. Some spiced rums may have a stronger emphasis on certain spices, while others may offer a more balanced blend.
Spiced rum is often enjoyed on its own, either neat or on the rocks, but it can also be used in cocktails. It is particularly popular in tropical drinks and tiki cocktails, where its bold flavour can stand up to other ingredients.
