2016 Spiced Rum Taste-off: Voodoo Spiced Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 3, 2016

Voodoo Spiced RumI continue my spiced rum taste-off with the 19th best spiced rum on my rum shelf. Voodoo Spiced Rum is produced by Three-D Spirits, Inc. ( The company was founded in 1996 with the stated goal to create exceptional  handmade rums. Their spiced rum is apparently (according to the website) produced from a blend of aged Virgin Islands Rum. The blended rum is infused with cloves and cinnamon as well as Madagascar vanilla, and bottled at 35 % alcohol by volume.

No information is given regarding the age of the rums in the blend; however, based upon my tasting notes, I would suggest that the spirit was aged for only a limited time period as there is very little evidence of oak or wood spice in the taste profile. This is typical of the spiced rum category.

Here is my review:

#19   Voodoo Spiced Rum

“… When I nose the glass vanilla wafts upward, and it is obviously the dominant spice. I also sense a mild but firm butterscotch sweetness and a light peppery spiciness in the breezes above the glass. Taking a little time and listening to what the merry little breezes above the glass tell me, impressions of cloves become more obvious along with hints of cinnamon …”


I hope you all find this countdown enjoyable and you can follow the rankings here:

    Hey Chip! Can’t wait to see what’s next on your list. I noticed in the picture you posted up of some of your spiced rums you had a bottle of Lamb’s Blacksheep spiced rum. Have you had a chance to try their new version of it? I don’t believe they make that version of it anymore. I’m from Ontario and I remember 3-4 years ago they changed the rum to a much more vanilla forward spiced rum and changed the label to a pirate hilariously similar to captain morgans. Just recently they’ve changed their label again (much nicer) but the rum has stayed the same.

    You really really need to procure a bottle of Chairman’s Reserve Spiced Rum from St Lucia, and add it to your review process. I also have about 20 spiced rums, (not Capt. Morgan) and this (so Far) is my favorite. Team Spirits Distributing in New York, brings it in and some on-line stores sell it, such as Potomac Wines and Spirits, Astor Wines, Binny’s Liqours and, KL Wines. No, I have no connection to the company nor do I have any vested or financial interest in this product, and no one is encouraging me to say this. Just try it and let us know what you think.
