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 has a great flavor with nice legs and beautiful aroma. Strong hints of vanilla and spice. One of my favorite sipping rums
I’m not a real “regular” Captain Morgan fan, but will occasionally have a Captain and Coke when I’m out. I went to my local package store to buy my regular go-to rum because we were hosting a bunch of friends for a party but they were sold out. There was a single dusty bottle of this left at a very inexpensive $20 price tag so I gave it a try. What a pleasant surprise. I drank half the bottle in rum & cokes, but spent the rest of the weekend drinking the rest on the rocks. So smooth & tasty. I’d never do that with regular Captain Morgan. Buy with confidence (but save me a bottle lol).
I am not a Captain Morgan hater though I prefer Sailor Jerry's at the bar. Not the Captain Morgan most know, it has a much smoother taste and nose though not a sipper, There is a dominant taste that is different than most spiced rums, pleasant but better in coke than citrus. Will keep it in my bar for that unique taste but believe Bacardi Black Oak is more rounded overall.
Enjoyed a glass of Captain Morgan 1671 rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design look nice and unique, not the traditional low end Captain Morgan style. Amber color. Strong caramel flavors straight to your nose and palate. Quite a burn at the end. This is still a mixer rum, although its the best Captain Morgan has to offer.
For me it starts with the aroma going to Simply the taste of the spices and it's smoothness and it ends on a wonderful finish.
This is a surprisingly elegant offering from a brand I associate with keg stands on the beach in panama city fl. Lots of not so subtle flavors and sweet finish. This does fine sipped on its own or mixed. Price seems to vary greatly. Would not pay top dollar for this one but definitely pleasantly surprised.
