Dead Man's Fingers Bottling Note

A spiced rum created by the chaps behind The Rum & Crab Shack in St. Ives (which serves tasty seafood and top rum - sounds excellent to us). This is made using a blend of Caribbean rums alongside a hearty helping of spices. When ordering, make sure to only ask for measurements in fingers like the cool people in films do. "Three fingers of Dead Man's Fingers please, barkeeper!"

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Pineapple, Seville orange, dried raisins dusted with cinnamon and black pepper. A touch of creamy vanilla develops later on.

Dead Man's Fingers Cornish Spiced Rum Reviews

Tastes awful

Has a chemical taste compared to some other spiced rums.

28th November 2020


Absolutely amazing

27th November 2020

Sweet fruity deep

Beautiful rum

Avoid this - an insult to decent spiced Rum

This has to be the most hyped-up Rum - all fur coat and no knickers. They have a great profile on social media and lots of momentum of late - but the liquid is appallingly poor. This is the first Rum brand that I have poured down the sink after one sip. The nose tells you it is industrial alcohol. The scented aroma is a precursor to a cheap taste that does not invite you back for more. Even my 18 year old son concurs and I can't even get his mates to finish the bottle off...

Better spiced rums out there

Cool name but bland in the mix and harsh on its own. Flavour tastes like it came out a test tube.

A blend of Sweetness and Spice

In the rum group that I’m a member of on Facebook, DMF not only as a rum, but as a brand, polarises opinions, with some members saying they are to commercial and that to many chemicals are used,making their rums taste artificial. While others say, every single flavour is simply divine. As for me. Well I loved the coconut rum and this spiced flavoured one is more than ok. It smells quite vanillary at first, giving you the anticipation of this rum tasting more sugary than peppery. But oh no. What the good folk at DMF have somehow managed to achieve, is to create a rum that simultaneously caresses your tastebuds with sweetness and jolts them with a heated after kick. Now most people would probably say that having a rum that is both sweet and spicy in the same glass should not and does not work. But I politely disagree. Neat for me, I’m not so keen, as it’s a little to fiery for my sweet tooth to handle. But add Coca-Cola and this rum becomes a pleasant long drink, with a heated kick that will keep the cold at bay.

Hits the sweet spot!

Lovely spiced rum! I won't do a review of what sort of hints of stuff I can taste but if you've had Kraken I think this slightly trumps it as a bit more spice to make it a pleasant drink. I've tried Dark Matter, which was far too spicy for me, so this it the sweet spot for me.

25th September 2020

Nice change from the norm

I enjoyed the bottle I bought expected it to be a bit over spiced like some rums I've tried but was slightly sweet which I felt was enjoyable

12th August 2020

Great taste, good buy

Some of the best Rum I have ever had smooth texture and mixes really well with Coke which is my usual after work tipple
Has a spiced vanilla flavour when mixed with coke and is even nice on its own

6th August 2020

Really decent

Rum is my drink (dark or spiced is my favourite) I've got to say that this is an exceptional spiced rum! I don't care about price/labeling or where it's from. This really is a decent rum and if you don't like it you are not a rum person. I'm not comparing, I just think it's a dam good dark spiced rum regardless of the price. Try it, enjoy it and don't try to compare it!!

1st August 2020

Love this!

This is such a treat! I've been drinking it in the summer but it smells and tastes like fabulous Christmas baking without being overly sweet. I've never tasted anything quite like it but it will definitely become a repeat purchase.

16th July 2020

Incredible Taste

Best rum you can possibly get. Go Cornwall!!

15th July 2020


By far the best i have tried so far. Absolutely delicious brilliant teaste of rum and coke or neat on the rocks. Very well done!

4th July 2020

Can't be bothered with a mixer?

Easy drinking, flavoured spiced rum. Actually tastes like rum and coke without the need for a mixer. I smashed a bottle in one sitting.
Probably not a true rum in the classic sense though, in my opinion.
Outstanding with ice!

28th June 2020

Very Smooth, great taste

This rum is really smooth and has great flavour. It's easy to drink either on ice or with a mixer.
If you're a rum person, this should definitely be on your list of bottles to buy.

24th June 2020

Best Rum on the market

Best flavoured rum absolutely delicious

8th June 2020

All round top rum

One of my favourites. Nice and smooth on the rocks, just what your looking for on a chill evening. Would suggest this rum to anyone. Been to St. Ives a few times and i’ve got to say it is 10 times better when from the local pubs around there.

5th June 2020

2nd best rum I've tried so far

Nice rum, not too sweet but to me it's a winner as I can taste cinnamon, vanilla and coffee.
Would recommend.

28th May 2020


Reminds me of eating Saffron Cake in a Cornish Bakery. Great spiced rum to drink straight or with mixers.

18th May 2020

Bloody marvellous

Well what can I say.... first bottle bought yesterday and we flattened it in one night, so easy to drink and was so smooth and reminded us of rum raisin ice cream.
Needless to say it took me a few attempts to get up stairs and into the bedroom (one step forward and two back).
Would highly recommend and is my new favourite drink

18th May 2020

Lovely jubely

Absolute bloody beauty mate

7th May 2020

Great rum, great price

Had to try this after seeing the reviews and was not disappointed. Smooth taste with strong notes of cinnamon and vanilla.

4th May 2020

Great rum poor restaurant

The rum is way better than the restaurant Great flavour for mixing and creating cocktails, served with ginger beer is awesome. Shame the food isn’t as good...

3rd May 2020

Best value spiced out there

I couldn’t believe the price of this stuff. Absolute gem of a spiced, fantastic neat or with Diet Coke. This will be a regular on my shelf.

25th April 2020

Great value

For the price this has got to be up there value for money wise. Goes great with my personal mixer of choice cherry coke

17th April 2020


Always my first choice. Perfect to have straight but do occasionally have it with ginger ale or dandelion and burdock.

25th March 2020

Value for money

Smooth spiced rum with subtle hints of cinnamon, orange and vanilla.
Great value for money but there is better out there for sure. Not on par with Kraken tho sadly.

20th March 2020

Try it and see

One of the best if not best smooth spiced rum . I will not buy any other now

29th February 2020

Good value

I drink neat this is good value rum. Felt like it gave me a little heartburn but overall worth a try

23rd February 2020

Well worth drinking

1st time I have tried dead mans fingers and found it very smooth and more ish , found that I had drunk the complete bottle over the evening

7th February 2020


Found this a bit harsh on flavour not a favourite normally a cornish rum is right up my street

28th January 2020

Will be buying more

Absolutely beautiful really smooth and to more ish a different flavour

1st January 2020

Great taste

Really smooth and lovely taste over ice with lime and mint with lemonade.

29th December 2019


Great spiced rum, very easy to drink mixed with coke

8th December 2019


Worst rum I've ever bought. Way over flavoured. Would be better if it was sold as "flavoured rum". Genuinely considering throwing the rest of my bottle away. Just can't drink it.

29th November 2019

Not to my Taste

Sorry not for me. Get a lot of Seville orange flavour but somehow does not work. Will stick to scotch or brandy.

16th November 2019


Love to try a sample

15th November 2019


Most unusual but enticing flavour
Perfect with just ice
Had both hands ( 10 fingers) last night when out
How did i get to bed last night?

9th November 2019

Misleading to the max

Produced by Halewoods and NOT by a Cornish crab shack. Think some more transparency may be needed! Lovey with Coke though

21st October 2019

Only rum I'd drink straight.

Usually I don't drink alcohol straight in terms of spirits, typically a baileys or cider drinker when I do drink, but a shot of this is great when I fancy a tipple. Usually a shots worth is all I need to relax so definitely takes a while to use up a bottle. If you know anyone with a bottle ask for a try it's not gonna kill your throat.

8th October 2019

Poor quality, in my opinion.

Over flavoured and a bit sickly.

14th September 2019


I loved this spiced rum managed to drink a whole bottle ha! Highly recommend this spiced rum it's amazing and now one of my favourites!!!

10th August 2019

Lovely drink

Its one of the best drinks I've had thanks so much

8th June 2019

Delicious taste *****

First tasted it in The Cross Keys in Cawsand, Cornwall. The owner of the pub got me a bottle while down there and so I was delighted to find this web site. Ordered on Wednesday 19th delivered 20th Dec, fantastic service.

21st December 2018


Created by the chaps in Cornwall, made in Liverpool! The recipe may be from Cornwall, but produced by a big distillery up North!

20th December 2018


Yes it's a bit round in the tongue,mild and smooth but with a crack opening that seeps out angels tears of the mildest hint of vanilla,at first thunder before the softly falling rain on my taste buds.

2nd December 2018


As my partner says, this is nice (it's a fantastic blend of subtle flavours). And she's never wrong

15th November 2018

Amazing Rum

One of the best Rum's I have ever tasted.

14th October 2018

I will be back for more

I normally indulge in more expensive rums . This rum was good for its price and I did enjoy a good quaff or two . I will day buy this product and have fun mixing it . I do like straight rum and I found it a bit ruff. Don't let me put any one off it is a very nice rum . I will add it to my cellar for a future testing.

24th July 2018

Good find from a small distiller

For a small batch, local rum (I'm from Cornwall), this has to be one of the best!. Smell: warm and only a light scent of spice. Little sweet overtones. Quite pleasant.
Neat: nice and warming, quite alcoholic taste, little aftertaste, not very spicy!
With coke: very nice with coke. Very warming, easy drinking nice choice for a local rum!

23rd March 2018

Great if you like to drink alcoholic caramel

Tries it few times and to me, it only taste like caramel and vanilla syrup with some alcohol.

26th October 2017

My favourite rum

First drank this at the rum and crab shack whilst on holiday in St Ives, before this I'd never drank spiced rum before. On returning home I've worked my way through many spiced rums but have failed to find one I like as much as this. Best enjoyed with a splash of ginger beer and a dash of bitters.

1st October 2017

Taste same same...but what do I know

For my amateur pallet and having the 35cl sample with 2 cubes of ice I found it harsh to being with until the ice had melted more....I guess the water opened the Rum up as i've read.
Of course with Coke or Ginger bee/ale I'm sure it could taste like other nice common Rums on the market, that not being a bad thing at all. Perhaps some more experienced Rum drinkers will be able to break it down better than me but from an amateur point of view it was fine.
