Default Cockspur Rum, comparable rums?


Easter weekend approaches.

Now. Tesco have 2 x btls of cockspur for £22! That's very cheap, like shop own brand cheap.

However 2 btls of rum I dislike is far from a bargain. I tend to like havana club anejo and appleton v/x mixed (ginger/cocktails).

However tried this recently and was very disappointed, the sainsburys 8 year old golden rum (see review). Too much vanilla, not enough body, very little fruit either, just vanilla, vanilla, vanilla. I'm not really a fan of your sailor jerry style spiced rums.

what rum would the cockspur 5 star compare too? would this be fine with ginger beer/ale?

Also great to find a board of rum lovers, rum is very slowly gaining ground in ireland
