Sorry about this...

Cloven Hoof Spiced Rum Bottling Note

Cloven Hoof Spiced Rum is made using a tasty blend of Guyanese and Trinidadian rum, along with a selection of spices. Within this selection you'll find cassia, anise, and clove. Y'know, like the name hints at! Well you know what they say about the devil and details and all that. This is wonderfully warming stuff, very suitable for sipping neat, but it also works well for cocktails that need a good kick of spice.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Enjoyably hot with cooking spice, with underlying caramelised fruit and brown sugar.

Cloven Hoof Spiced Rum Reviews

Great discovery, happy Hoofer.

Bought a bottle tentatively as I’m not a big fan of spiced rum or the devil but I love it neat, with ginger beer and in a shot of coffee. Not so great in coke.

Not a huge rum drinker but Hoof has been my lockdown livener. Highly recommend …. its a bit marmite though, love/hate thing!

26th June 2020


Great alternative to the vanilla based spiced rums and loving it with ginger beer. Boldly spiced and I recommend mixing with lighter mixers rather than coke.

26th June 2020

Buy & try! Delicious stuff.

Clearly a really good base rum is used and you can taste the Barrel ageing. A little sweet but the spices balance this out. Full of complex flavour and almost perfect for my demanding palate.

Dentist's Mouthwash

Taste's more like dentist's "rinse out" fluid to me! Bloody awful stuff!

25th June 2020

Game changer !!

Great rum , very smooth to drink , couldn't recommend more

24th June 2020

New favourite

Don't usually drink rum, but this was a revalation. My new favourite drink!

23rd June 2020

A lockdown must have

Love it! Just ordered another bottle, I tried it when I was at a friends house(pre lockdown obviously) and just fell in love with it. I was new to spiced rum, I didn’t really think it was a drink for me but I was very wrong. Definitely worth giving it a try!

23rd June 2020

Try with Tonic

Has great mouthfeel, nice and warming. I always have it with tonic, its much more interesting that just a G&T. Will buy again!

23rd June 2020

Devilish nectar, love it!

Hoof virgin.... at first I was overwhelmed by a big spice hit but my palate warmed and my smile broadened. I fallen in love with this devilish nectar, hallelujah!!!

23rd June 2020

Probably yummy

If you send some to me and my wife,being Spiced Rum novices and looking for a brand to knock our socks off,we’d be much obliged!

21st June 2020

Oh yes!

This is very naughty. I've only tried with coke and lime and it leaves a warm, smooth and spicy aftertaste.

20th June 2020

Great addition to the drinks cupboard

Great tasting spiced rum, certainly worth a try, does not have the vanilla that many others do.

20th June 2020

Not for me

Do like the occasional spice rum but this one is more like a cough syrup, I get the cloves but its very very sweet it may be good with mixers but it's not a sipping rum. Not for me.

20th June 2020

Versatile and Different

First things first, you can tell this is a quality dark rum at heart. Its not a dyed white rum with vanilla essence like Kraken etc. Clove and cinnamon spicing means this in NOT the run of the mill spiced rum. Its great neat - the warming aftertaste lingers so you don't feel the need to drain your hip flask in a few minutes. Mixer wise, in winter it be used to make instant guerilla mulled wine - all you need is Cloven Hoof, Red Wine and a radiator to heat the bottle of wine! My personal favourite mixer is Dry Ginger Ale, with ice and dash of Angostura Orange knocks psots off Pimms!

1st June 2020


Without a doubt the best spiced rum available. That manky stuff, krakoff? No contest. CH boom! Amazing!!

31st May 2020


This is my current favourite spiced rum! Can't wait for it to come back in stock so I can order more.

31st May 2020

Beautiful Rum!

The original and best. Works so well with ginger beer and lime. When the sun’s out the hoof goes down so well!

31st May 2020

Thick spicy awesomeness

A proper thick, sweet, dark, spiced rum. Sticks to the glass. Best experienced neat.

As good as Barti Ddu, but completely different.

Ignore the haters - yes, Kraken or Woods are better if you like thin, dark rum with a strong liquourice aftertaste. But for everybody else, well, this is awesome.

Seriously good value for money. Makes all the supermarket dark rums seem incredibly disappointing, so be warned.

Nutters can try the "Over Hoof" version if they have sufficient brave pills in stock.

30th May 2020

My new favourite

At first try I wasn’t overly keen, I realised I had got my measured wrong and that free pouring wasn’t going to work until I had got the balance right against my Coke.

Once you’re balanced it is incredible! My new favourite!

30th May 2020

A busy Rum than needs a good pairing to really shine

I thought it was finally time to deviate from the 'pub standards' of spiced rum (Kraken, Captain Morgans etc.) are explore something more off the beaten track which The Hoof seemed to fit in spades!

I must admit, this has infinitely more going on in it than your average spiced rum and I can see why some reviews are not so keen. I typically like to have Spiced Rum with a splash of ginger beer or lemonade and frankly Hoof tasted foul mixed with those. I decided to do some reading and saw that fresh fruit juice (orange/pineapple etc.) works well and by joe were they right.

This Rum comes alive when offset with the sharpness of the juice and it's complexity isn't anywhere near as overwhelming. Honestly was initially disappointed but now I think i've found a new favorite and glad I took the gamble!

18th May 2020

kraken rum is a lot better!!

This is shit

10th May 2020

Smooth and tasty spiced delight!!

Supremely tasty rum. Perfect as a straight measure in an old fashioned, 2 splashes of bitters crushed ice and orange peel. beautifully smooth spiced rum!

24th April 2020

Awesome rum. Favourite by far.

Love the Hoof..... a real quality spiced rum, great neat or with ginger & lime. Highly recommend.

23rd April 2020

Raise the HOOF.....Amazing.

Raise the HOOF.....Amazing. We live near Bournemouth and struggled to find it. Now we have found it on Masters of Malt we will definitely be buying loads. Love this Rum !!

3rd April 2020

Thumb up!

Normally drink neat rum but the spices in this work really well and balance the strong dark liquid nicely.

17th December 2019

My new fave!

Bold spices do this dark rum justice. Unique flavours and a fun bottle. Highly recommend. RAISE THE HOOF!

16th December 2019

Best flavoured rum EVER


11th December 2019

11th August 2019

Excellent rum. My favourite

Excellent spicy rum. Love the brand and all the associated festivals and music. Raise the Hoof!

15th July 2019

Super spicy and smooth sipping rum

Love it, with ice and lime wedges.

2nd June 2019

Delightfully spiced

Tried this rum last year and was converted immediately. It's the only spiced rum I can drink on its own and is a great sipper. It's equally at home mixed, either with ginger ale or with pineapple / orange juice - zombie-esque.

11th July 2018

New favourite spiced rum!

Great base rum and unique flavours, no vanilla or pirates, tasty neat and works well well with ginger ale and fresh lime.

11th July 2018

Well worth a try

Delicious! Will be buying ASAP! X

7th July 2018

Almost perfect

Tried a sample and am heavy considering buying a bottle now. With the initial hit, I was confused. This was different to most commercial rum, perhaps it was anxiety from receiving a sample through the mail that made me apprehensive. The second sip, however, was golden. Sweet, but not overly sweet or synthetic. There was no horrible alcoholic burn after, yet it carried a kick. This kick carrying strong flavour, almost as if I was tasting a whisky. In fact, it has a similar smokey afternote as if it was a peaty scotch that comes through from the star anise. The cloves bring a strong but appreciated flavour and all in all tastes great on the rocks or mixed.

10th March 2018

The Devil made me do it!

Beats the competition hands down! This is a beautifully sweet rum with hits of cloves, star anise and cinnamon. Goes amazingly well with ginger beer but is a lovely drink straight up. Raise the Hoof andbthank me later

26th February 2018


I was recommended this rum by a friend of mine. It's absolutely amazing and now my favourite spiced rum. I love the flavour and encourage anyone to try this tipple!

3rd January 2018

Strange flavour

Really hoped I would love this rum as I like the branding and it looks good on my shelf but there's something strange about the flavour. It's not to my taste, I've tried it a few times but I just don't get on with it, I think it's just a matter of taste though, I can tell the flavour is intense and i'm sure a lot of people will really enjoy it. A bit like Dark Matter in that sense, some people hate it some love it. Would still rather drink this than Sailor Jerry however.

31st December 2017

The Devils Delicious Drink - Needs to be tried to be believed!

I bought this a few weeks ago and not only is it totally different from every other spiced rum on the market (in my opinion) it's is soooo damn tasty! The nose is potent with cloves and demerara, the taste is sweet with very intense with cloves which then gives way to cassia bark and finally the finish is a devilishly viscous caramelized sugar bomb!

I enjoy it neat or over ice but goes damn well with ginger beer, with cloudy apple juice, or for a warm treat, I mixed it with a good cloudy scrumpy with orange bitters and slices of orange and gently warmed! Perfect mulled rum n cider!

15th September 2017

highly Recommended- unusual and tasty as hell!

Bought this and loved it!! first found it at a Rum Festival in Glasgow! finished the bottle and had to come back for me! highly recommended

14th September 2017

Love it

Awesome rum - so different to all the usual corporate pirate branded vanilla flavoured rum!

23rd August 2017

Great value!

Great tasting, easy to drink rum
