Significantly smoother on the palate than many other brown spirits, the quality stands out whether it’s straight or mixed. The agreeable distinctive flavour is great on the rocks but equally best mixed with your favourite mixer or in cocktails. In Barbados, Cockspur & Coke is a popular favourite. Five Star is light and golden in colour with an uncomplicated, pleasant smell. Its taste is extremely smooth, round and warm, which becomes spicy on the palate, getting slightly buttery towards the end.
