In the Caribbean, they’ve been adding spices to their Rums for ages, but it wasn’t until the 1980s, that the category made some serious headway in our local bars and liquor stores.
Spiced Rums have come a long way since, and now there are plenty to choose from, many good enough to sip, even by Uncle Flaviar's strict criteria. Higher-quality Rums use real spices to add flavor, while many spiced Rums just use aromas, which can still be natural, but it’s just not the same thing.
