User Reviews of the Sailor Jerry 1.5l

Not good

I tried this and was sorely disappointed after hearing people talk highly of its flavor. I found it to be harsh and the aftertaste was foul. I found it to be down in the ranks with Captain Morgan spiced and Kraken. I prefer Bacardi Oakheart for a spiced rum. This was just a blend of molasses and paint thinner.

One of the best.

This is my go-to rum for parties and nights out; its best mixed but can be sipped neat or on the rocks if you want, although Kraken is better for this. I've tried Admiral Vernon's Old J, which imitates the old Sailor Jerry recipe that people so desperately miss, and it's good, but the new Sailor ain't so bad. Summed up, great for mixing, alright for sipping, and not as bad as people say.

From friends/family experience

Like the old recipe? Google "Admiral vernon Old J" as the name suggests it is made based on the original Sailor Jerries recipe and for roughly £20. Unsure whether or not it is available outside the UK but search around :) Enjoy!

not nice

The recipe has changed it now tastes almost like a minty mouthwash

Thanks to the yanks!!

The new recipe was created for the American market, much to the annoyance of every other country it seems. Don't bother buying this new version as you are better of with Morgans Spiced instead, it's much more palatable. However if you search on eBay you can still get the old recipe for around £70 for a 1.5ltr bottle - well worth it in my opinion as the "original" original recipe is the smoothest rum I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.

i changed to bundy

always drank jerry but not any more the new recipe is disgusting haven't the distillers got any taste or dont they drink rum ?

19th November 2011

positive surprise!

I have not tasted the old recipe, yet so that I was able to judge it before I have tried the so hyped good ol' stuff.

What I can tell is that this is the best spiced rum I ever had! It's smell is so nice and it goes down that smooth, it is just unbelievable.

The only thing I have to criticize is it's price, compared to the 0,7 bottle. This is just insane but known from other brands as well. Therefore only 8/10.

Buy this stuff and don't believe the hype ;)

i loved the old recipie but this is such a let down

16th March 2011


Only buy the original recipe, the new one is no way near as good! I will avoid until it is changed back.

9th March 2011


The new stuff is absolutely vile!! FACT

7th March 2011


this stuff is disgraceful-I have emailed the company loads of times about bringing back the original recipe but got no reply or standard automated replies.They should never have tampered with it-if it's not broken,why fix it?And they say they carried out taste tests throughout the UK-I don't for a minute believe that-why anyone would choose this crap over a perfectly gorgeous drink is beyond me.Myself,my friends and anyone I know,have boycotted this abomination...perhaps their falling sales figures might make them reconsider!Everyone spread the word and boycott this recipe!

Been on Morgans spiced since they absolutely screwed up Jerrys--not a happy chappy---Ive witnessed the way the young ones were drinking it more and more, whilst working in Leeds, not the case now, some drinks experts were actually suggesting it would become more popular than Vodka, I dare say it will survive, but they will not get the sales that the last recipe would have assuredly achieved.

19th November 2010


The new recipe has completely spoilt a very popular rum which was beautiful to drink!!! Can't believe that people at Sailor Jerry's think the new recipe is nicer! Don't waste your money, and buy something like Morgan's Spiced or head to eBay and buy a bottle of the old recipe!

4th August 2010


Don't care what they say - they did NOT canvass regular users. The new recipe is bland - no better than standard rum. Lost a whole family of rum drinkers.

4th August 2010

Do not buy

Hate new recipe!

1st August 2010

Better off with Morgans

New recipe is terrible. Better with the old one. Dont buy!

1st August 2010

don't buy the new stuff

horrible,bland nothing like the old recipe,what on earth are the makers thinking of????????????????

3rd July 2010

Do not buy this stuff

The old recipe was better, if you're going to buy this, you may as well buy morgans spiced as its cheaper and nicer.

9th June 2010

No good!

Eeeuw! not like the old recipe. this tastes off.
wont buy it anymore unless they make the original again.

19th May 2010

dont buy the new stuff!

I agree, the old recipe had vanilla & lime and was gorgeous!! This one just tastes like watered down morgans spiced :(

18th May 2010

Not the same

No where near as nice as the old recipe, no idea why they changed it but it's not worth the extra cash anymore- save yourself some money and just buy a cheaper bottle as there's nothing special about this anymore.

16th May 2010

Yeah look at the label

This is the "new flavour" and is absolute rubbish.

11th May 2010


Yeah but it's a 1.5 litre bottle, not the smaller one we buy in shops!

19th April 2010

9th April 2010
