Sailor Jerry 1.5L
The eponymous spiced rum named for Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins, a world famous tattoo artists who created the recipe whilst working at sea.
Thanks to the yanks!!
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!

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

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 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 ;)
