Just tried this via the Drinkshop.com. Glad to see that this is now available via AMAZON.
When sailor jerry changed the recipe for what was the most original and tasty rum on the market, a lot of people were bereft.. but now something even better has come about.
The new ADMERAL VERNANS OLD J. To say that my faith in tast had been restored was an understatement. a wonderful mix of vanilla and lime, within a fantastic blend of rum, long live this new brand.
I for one am realy thankful.. Richie

This will be weird. I am writing a review of something I did not really like and giving it Five Stars...........Before you crucify me, read on.

Tried a fair few Spiced Rums, Captain Morgan and Kraken, Barcardi Oakheart and the like. Enjoyed them all and tend to sip them straight rather than mix. They make a good summer drink with a little ice and are nice just straight in the winter to sip.

The label on this says it is based on an old recipe, but I would doubt if it matches that given the sheer blast of vanilla you get in both taste and smell. Cannot imagine many 'Jolly Tack Tars' would have been entirely raving about this replacing the rum ration - old Grog as I understand it was Rum watered down with sugar and lime juice, the latter to stop scurvy. This boasts the lime but also the vanilla that gives it such a notable smell and taste.

When I say it is not something I liked, my wife and daughter went crazy for it, hence the five stars. I can't knock it down just because it was not my 'thing' because clearly it appeals to many others and they have already confirmed it as a 'must have'.

My daughter likes it as it makes a very good 'Vanilla' Coke and my wife just enjoys it as a sipper.

So a nice idea, just be aware that if vanilla is not your 'thing' this will not convert you, but you're bound to have friends or family who will love it.

Anyone as disgruntled as I was over the flavour change to Sailor Jerry need lament no longer Admiral Vernons Old J is every bit as impressive as Sailor Jerrys original flavour, I just hope as i have just been guilty of it doesn't continue to be compared with its Peer, its worthy to stand on its own as THE Vanilla spiced rum of choice.

After the discontinuation of the old recipe of Sailor Jerry, I was devastated. Once I'd opened this rum, that familiar sweet vanillary scent hit my nose and I was instantly taken back to the first time I tried the old recipe Sailor Jerry! Finally there's a vanilla and lime spiced rum once again!

My mate was a massive fan of the original recipe Sailor Jerry and was annoyed when it was taken off the market. He drinks Morgans or Bacardi Oakheart now but still talks about how he misses the old Sailor Jerry. After I heard that Old J was almost a replica of the original SJ then I just had to buy a bottle for me and my mate to try out. When it arrived I opened the bottle, poured him a double measure, put in some ice, some cola, a wedge of lime, I handed him the glass, he had a sip and his reaction was this - "Ahhhhhhh....... there she is!"
Enough said!

As a massive fan of the original Sailor Jerry's rum, (having 3 litres of it at home, and being down to my last litre or so of it) I feared that my time of sipping on the finest tasting spiced rum was coming to end.... However, I them discovered 'Old J'. Damn. What a find. For the price you simply cannot complain & you probably, upon taste, couldn't blame me for drinking a full bottle in a night. Yeah Yeah, I'm a lunatic. However, if you do buy this rum, you most certainly will not be disappointed. I will be buying this again.... many times over.
