ATP, I have B.G. Reynolds Don's Spices #2 (DS2) and I compared it to the Grog Concentrate (GC) last night at your suggestion. While they are similar, to me the DS2 is a thicker and sweeter syrup with a definite vanilla flavor. I don't (or maybe barely) taste vanilla in the GC. Finally, thr DS2 has a much less pronounced allspice flavor (1/2 - 1/3).

If the recipe calls for 1/4 oz. of the GC you may need to use 3/4 oz. of DS2. I paid $10 for a 12 oz. bottle of the DS2 and a 750ml (23+ oz.) bottle of the GC cost me from $7 to $12, depending on when and where I bought it. Given that one uses less GC per drink it is much cheaper than DS2, if you can find it.

Soon I'll taste test a DS2 Navy Grog vs. the GC version. I bet they will both taste pretty good!
