this is by far a surprise to me. I could not believe how much I enjoyed this rum. I'm just so happy that I have 3 more bottles to enjoy. Actually 2, one I think I will save for a very special occasion.
I don't know exactly what possessed me to buy a bottle of this. Especially after rating Capt. Morgan Cannon Blast with a 1 (wish I could've given it a 0) and the Capt. Morgan Private Stock with a 2. But I've been told that this one is different and better. Plus I read it's been discontinued. So when I ran across some for sale on the clearance table, I thought, "Why not?".
As the title says...it doesn't suck.
It's not great, either. But it doesn't make me want to vomit after consuming a few meager sips like the Canon Blast did (that stuff sucks with a capital SUCK).
The color in the snifter is like a lightly stained mahogany.
The aroma...smells like candy...uh-oh...could spell trouble...
The flavor is indeed sweet but not sickenly sweet. It does have spices but nothing really stands out. At only 70 proof (35% ABV) it does not have as much of a kick as 80 proof (or higher) rums. Borderline liqueur. A little too sweet for colas and fruit-based drinks. Probably works well with coffee-based cocktails and with drier beverages (as a counter to the sweetness).
Okay...I admit...this doesn't suck. It's still not good but it is not the worst out there either. Take it for what it is. If this was discontinued by the folks at Capt. Morgan then I consider it a poor decision by their marketing department.
I started what would be my Summer of Rumn with 1671. This offering was well balanced, not to sweet, not to tangy. I am not sure they will produce it again, I wish I could find another bottle. As an artist I really liked the packaging, very nice looking bottle compared to the others on the shelf which surly influenced my choice.
This rum has such a unique flavour to me. Serve it with cola and some bergy bits and a fine refreshing drink is had. Hearty, sincere, and very tasty.
Very smooth, amazing as well, I love the bottle it is what made me buy it, the flavors inside are so yummy, shots or with Cola. A huge fan of this one, wish they kept it around for longer.
Not as much vanilla as Private Stock, but still a good/excessive amount. I add it to rum and coke, but will an equal amount of some other non-vanilla bomb rum.
