Hold up, what is Spiced Rum? Essentially it's a flavoured rum. It’s distilled in the exact same way as any other molasses-based rum, but following that process and at some point during ageing, spices, aromatics and fruits can be added to impart additional flavours. The best spiced rums often showcase some of the more traditional spices associated with the drink – including vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon – but some modern interpretations feature less common flavours. Yum!
