    I have only recently got into Sailor Jerry, I don't think I ever even tasted the old recipie, but I did see all the complaints about the new one...

    I have also heard the old bottles are selling for almost double because of this.

    I just happened to see this in my local shop so brought it... This is the old recipie right?

    If it is, should I be going back to clean him out?

    See, I have only tried the new stuff and I think it's alright.

    If I drink this I might start hating it haha

    He had about 5 or 6 more bottles of it, any websites that are selling it seem to be going for about £30 for the old bottles now.

    I think I prefer the new recipe. On ice, with coke and a twist of lime I found it less sickly and more like proper rum (less like a liqueur).
    Maybe that's cause i'm more used to this:

    See you drink it with coke, you can't really taste the difference. But with Ginger beer or ale you really can.
    My favourite is Old recipe Sailor Jerry with plenty of fresh lime & Jamaica ginger beer. I think it's called Dark 'n' Stormy. Delicious :)

    Doesn't it need coke in it to be called a Cuba Libre? Havana 7 is nice. I normally get the one above cause it's easier to find in supermarkets and theres no decent off licences near me.

    I'll have to take your word... it's shame I can't do a taste comparison now with the old recipe.

    Thinking about it I hope the old flavour comes back, it wasn't my absolute favorite but it was definitely one of the most distinctive rums on the market. Now it's more like the others.

    Not a fan of Morgans... but again, i've only tried it with coke. I need to branch out with my mixers!
    What type of ginger beer/ale do you use?

    yes it does need coke kinda vital actually.... cheers i 4got and your probably right about it being cuba libra aswell no wonder the barmaids kept fucking shit up after i would write cocktail list.

    try this one

    2 x cachaca (brazilian rum)
    2 x lime crushed
    1 teaspoon brown sugar
    and crushed ice

    called a caprinha if i remember correctly

    Yeah it really is a shame because it was a beautiful rum, the lime & vanilla made it different from everything else! I like it with this ginger beer but Barrs is also nice they sell that in tesco's.
