Recommendable to most
I'm going to go out on a limb here. My family tradition is to take a shot to start a football game. For my wife that's whiskey, and this bottle finally gave me a satisfying counter.
This rum is more complex than your standard mixer bottle, but isn't so fussy to stop me from getting the shot glass.
It's VERY sweet and dangerously smooth. Don't get the cola (or Dr Pepper in my case) out, or you will regret the morning. But for what I enjoy it for, it's perfect.
I have tried about 20 spiced rums so far and this is very good. No alcohol harshness. Good amount of spice without being overbearing or vanilla bomb. Solid choice I was able to buy for $15/bottle which is great value too.
Thu USC satisfaction with a fine blend of spices and very smooth! Aromatics of dried fruit and spices with a finish of vanilla and chocolate. Definitely full bodied...
Normally I keep a bottle of original Captain around the house for a quick drink with some cola so when I grabbed this I was quite happy. It mixed very well, and was smooth on its own.
Love the aroma. Expected it to be too sweet however i was surprised to find this a smooth spiced rum. I'm a sipper and this is especially good with a twist of lime. I recommend this rum.
I only managed to pick up two bottles of this before it disappeared from our shelves. I loved it. Sweet and smooth flavours. I have a bit of a sweet tooth so what's not to enjoy from this Captain Morgans rum? I can only pick it up now by the case and I am starting to consider it.
Everyone has that one kind of alcohol that makes them gag because they once drank too much of it and vomited all night long. For me that alcohol is Captain Morgan original spiced rum, I hate the stuff. I also don't drink spiced rum very often and the last bottle I bought was The Kraken original spiced rum around the time when it was brand new. Somehow I decided to buy this CM 1671 bottle bc I haven't seen it at any other liquor store I've ever been to, and it was only 20 bucks. I can say that I don't hate this one, it's sweet and very smooth with tons of vanilla and some solid spice flavor to it. It still reminds me of regular captain but not gag worthy, idk all spiced rums tastes the same to me. I did have a tiny 50ml bottle of Kraken on hand at the time and when I compared them the flavors we're quite similar except the 1671 was sweeter and smoother which was expected. The 1671 is 70 proof with a lot of added sugar vs Kraken 94 proof w ?some sugar but likely less added. Nothing very special but 1671 is smooth and sweet and good to mix, I happened to bevdrinking it on the rocks and it had zero burn. My next spiced rum will be the new 70 proof Kraken Black that is not yet on rum ratings AKA "the Blacken". It reminds me of partying in the summertime and taking shots of some kind of spiced rum. Overall it's smooth enough to sip if u like the flavor but probably tastes best to make a vanilla rum n coke.
This rum is so smooth. Just put it on some ice and drink away or mix with Coke. Either way you won't be upset.. I wish they continued making this. Now that they stopped making it I'm buying it my the case to have it for as long as possible...
I haven't been able to find this rum in my hometown of Longview, TX for over a year. I was told that it wasn't being produced anymore. Well, to my pleasant surprise, I'm spending the night in Ft. Worth and the liquor store across the street from my hotel has it! Woot woot! I am so excited. The guy there told me he had just ordered it a month ago and had no problem getting it. I had also found it in Austin last year so Idk why I can't find it near me.
