Recommendable to most
I like the 1671. I feel it is quite smooth. Caramel and vanilla, with an almost chocolate finish. Have not mixed, but use for a sipper. Cool bottle also. On a side note, I also like the Captain Morgan Sherry Cask, which I feel is a bit smoother. All in all, I think 1671 is a good rum.
Sugar: 40 to 45 gpl. I was pleasantly surprised by this rum and admit that I bought it for the bottle plus this rum was on clear out pricing as it's been discontinued by the LCBO in Ontario. The 1671 has more spice and flavour than the Captain's Private Stock, plus it is not as sweet. Goes down quite easily and has a nice warm afterglow. It matches up with other spiced rums in the market and in my opinion is better than the Barcardi line. I might have to get another bottle before it's gone. Updated December 2020. I did a taste test with Kraken and LemonHart spiced rum. The Kraken won.
Finally this rum is available at a liquor store near. I really like the bottle, and I would classify this rum in the "flavored" category.
Very sweet, fruity with very distinct aromas, It reminds me a lot of Legendario Élixir de Cuba. A favorite.
The main thing on this Rum is perception..
Regular Captain Morgan Rums are taking down this type of high standard ones.
Another important fact is probably misconception on purpose of this Rum..
This Rum is a really good fit to mix it with cola. Also doing surprisingly great drinking alone unlike other Captain Morgan Rums.
Color is nice caramel color.
Aroma is vanilla yes it is sweet but not super sweet and if you consider it is blended with caramel it is as sweet as it needs to be...
Taste is more like aroma you'll get what you smell... Caramel and Vanilla and some other fruits (i couldn't differentiate either it was cherry or blackberry) Which is good
Overall it is a high quality effort and surprisingly amazing price. Hope they'll continue to sell it because i feel like i find my everyday rum&coke rum..
If you are considering this the private stock is much better and worth the price difference. Agree with the reviewer who noted cocoa notes. Vanilla does not come through as much and kind of clashes with coke instead of improving it. Have not found the right application for this yet, may mix better with ginger beer?
Actually not a bad rum. Ok to sip but more of a mixer with coke. Smooth taste straight and was good with coke.
Vanilla taste, no throat burn, and pretty long after taste.
Was selling out quickly in eastern Pennsylvania so I had local State Store transfer 2 bottles in for me. $19.99 a bottle here in PA
A good effort from the captain but it is still a rum for university students not a rum collectors choice to buy. Nice bottle.
