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.
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.
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.
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?
A good effort from the captain but it is still a rum for university students not a rum collectors choice to buy. Nice bottle.
No typically fan of spice rum however I saw this and I though I would give it a go.
Nose: The best part. Cocoa and spices.
Feel: You hardly know you are tasting rum...
Taste: because all you can taste is the sugar. You don't even need to put it with coke they have added quite enough already. Sickly.
Presentation: This is why a bought it. I though they were taking rum seriously and could make a nicely balanced spice rum where the goal was to flavour rather than mask.
Cost: 38CAD. Way way too much.
