Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Found a whole bottle I forgot I had bought and it was unopened too, had been a while since I’ve drank 100 proof rum so I thought it might be pretty harsh cuz I’ve been drinking 80 proof mount gay recently but no, it was amazing, and it’s good to swig, sip and mix.
Good old-fashioned spiced rum bottled at a higher-proof. Not extra-harsh or anything, even at 50% ABV, and it's tasty stuff, too, with caramel and vanilla tastes up front and if left to linger around the tongues, also carries oaky smoke flavors I found pleasing, myself. One of the better "Captain" products going. If you wanna "jack-up" the rum punch, this one is for you!
This is a good pick for me when I only have enough room for whats in my flask and I need a hefty punch with limited quantity. For 100proof, it mixes well... and the extra hooch gives it enough kick to make it worth it. Its pretty terrible by itself though, but it can rate high if you use it correctly.
This is one of my favorite spiced rums. I'd drink more of it if it wasn't 50%! Best served mixed, on any of your regular mixed drinks. Goes very well in a hurricane.
This is my go to higher proof rum. Lets the glasses flow with 100proof goodness. It slides back easier than its lower proof brother, but packs much more of a punch. Always fun to stand up after a few and really take note of the 100 proof as it smacks you like a scorned ex.

First taste… WOW! That will wake you up. At 100 proof it can also put you down in a hurry. There is no hiding that strength. No Captain Morgan rum has ever been accused of being shy. There is some burn of course, but much less than many weaker rums i have tried. Captain Morgan 100 proof reminds me of drinking vanilla extract. There’s a little more going on of course. But Captain Morgan is a simple drink. Even with the burn I wouldn’t call this rum rough at all though. It doesn’t smack your face like Captain Morgan Black Spiced does. Oh you do know this alcohol, no doubt about it. More importantly with all that sweet vanilla you know you are drinking RUM. After getting Captain Morgan Black Cask nice and chilled it was actually a very pleasant sipper. I had it nice and neat in a little glass jar. No ice, no water. There was no bitter aftertaste in the finish whatsoever. The finish is short and dry but that’s not really a bad thing. This Captain Morgan doesn’t linger on the tongue except for a mild vanilla aftertaste. Mixed with diet cola it was pretty much Vanilla Coke with some punch…and kick… Really though, i preferred it straight up.
I can’t see any reason to bother with the 70 proof version other than just to compare the two. This is a good rum. Is it a delciate balance of fine aged rum and spices? NO! What is it then? Captain Morgan Spiced 100 Proof is smooth, tasty, and STRONG. It’s a simple and uncomplicated high proof rum. This makes it fun and easy to drink, which is probably why the brand is so popular. I find this rum to be a perfectly acceptable sipper. There are better sippers for sure, but don’t underestimate this one. On top of that Captain Morgan Black Cask Spiced 100 mixes wonderfully in cola and tea. The tea was an accident, but a happy accident indeed.
The Captain has earned his spot in the marketplace by being accessible and consistent. Introducing a smooth more potent big brother to the classic is a huge step in the right direction! Captain Morgan Black Cask 100 Proof Rum will always have a home in my liquor cabinet.
VERY strong caramel of this rum gives a good quality to be used to produce rums taste deserts or drinks that require rums. Would recommend to be used even with cola you can fell strong caramel even with cola.
Probably my second to last Captain Morgan bottle I will buy. Not that I dislike the captain but I think there are finer rums in life. This is one step above the original but it's not great. I believe this is something younger people drink to impress girls.
I like the color, rich amber. Reminds me of beer I used to make. Nose, not sure if it's the vanilla sweetness, or the spice. If I want to get drunk in a hurry, I think this would be my rum of choice. Doesn't burn much more than many 80s. Easy to drink strait up, might be good with rum and coke. Worth a try.
Not sure the point of this offering from the Capt. but sampled none the less. It was fine, but I usually do not drink to get drunk, and I have to wonder if this is its purpose? Taste almost identical to Original Capt. and because of the extra $$, I would just stay with the original. I did not sample straight, only with coke.
If you do not have as much time to enjoy your drinks mixed with the regular Captain, but still want to get a good buzz going, this will help you get there a little faster. It's taste is a little stronger than the original, but it is still good. Not sure if it is worth the extra price. If you can get it at the same price as the regular Captain, go for it.
