Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I find it smoother than a black rum from Kraken. Haven't tried it mixed. Not bad straight.
The charred barrels do this common one some good. While very similar to kraken, this is a bit thicker and with less menthol and more cassia flavor. The only CM I'll drink.
I enjoy Captain Morgan Black for mixing. It is a bit harsh drinking neat, I figure the 94 proof does this. I prefer Dr. Pepper as a mixer over Coke for this one. Also, good with Red Bull that is similar to a Jager bomb, but I like this version better. I see a lot choose Kraken over the Black, but I like the finish of vanilla notes better on the Black as a mixer. A bit more going on than the Kraken and I feel smoother also.
Nice warm and spicy feel. Can be drinked any way you want. Neat, on rocks or in drink. I like its caramel taste with no overwhelming licore like others black rums. Thick and melow in mouth.
This was once my go-to rum when I didnt know any better and was only drinking Dark & Stormy's. Now that I'm all about sipping with my cigar, I cant even look at this bottle.
If you could just sit and smell one rum all day this would be it, lots of vanilla and spices. As a sipping rum it will serve you, but better if mixed with something.
Not so sweet like Gold Spiced with good aroma, but in taste I feel something like Jagermeister 😒
Not much to say, perfect for The Coke!
But a stronger and more powerful taste than Spiced Gold.
As the name implies, this is a very dark rum. As a relatively new rum drinker, this tool me by surprise. Color aside, in a mixer this is a rich tasting, smooth drink. I prefer it over CM original spiced. Glad I bought the 1.75L.
McDonald's would do the same. As others have said very similar to Kraken. Just a mass production take on things. Lots of vanilla and certainly a lot of sugar. Will do as a mixer and that's about it. But Hey it's alcohol so drink up.
Eigentlich nur gekauft weil das Label ansprechend war. Doch super Überraschung. Zimtig und Karamell. Selbst Lakritze und Beeren vermag ich zu schmecken. Sollte man mal machen. (V1.0.)
It has a nice strong aroma. It is allowis nice to ingeoi a glass of this rum after work. It is also very good in cocktails
Well obviously a try to cash in on the popularity of Kraken. Its a good mixer with a nice vanilla note.
one of the best Rum that I've been trying to do for the past few years.
This is a good rum that I prefer neat or on ice but not mixed. It has a taste that is smooth enough to stand on its own and not harsh for the sake of being strong.
Your go to run for easy drinking in social environment
Not a fan of spiced Rums but sampled Captain Morgan Black Spiced rum and although sweet, it wasn’t that bad.
It's a pretty good sipping rum for the price, in my opinion. I haven't used it for a mixer despite going through two bottles of it, but I find it a very nice and simple rum. It has a pleasant kick, a predominantly vanilla taste (to me, at least).
I find it a lot less harsh than Kraken, and a lot more pleasant to sip from throughout the night.
I drink my rums neat (no snob, just my way). My review of Capt. Morgan Black Spiced here on this wonderful site is written after slowly proceeding through three bottles. I continue to be delighted that this offering is a really very enjoyable drink, although consumer perception assumes it is a profit-based, commercial brand (yeah I know, cynical). To enjoy I cannot imagine diluting by mixing, not even with ice. Its flavors are full, hot and nicely balanced. I just wish the mfr would find a way to make it less sweet. There's a little too much sugar in it which makes me think I'm being patronized. My absolute favorite rum is still the Kraken, but CM Black is a must to have in my glass once in a while.
This is my go to spiced rum with cola. Cheap enough to always have one in my cabinet. Many Kraken drinkers have been converted to this one !
Has become difficult to find as no long sold in my province.
Nu har jeg prøvet de almindelige Morgans, som kun kan bruges som mixer, men absolut ikke som sipper. Denne har en god krydret smag og er ikke udrikkelig alene, men er dog at foretrække i en Dark'n'Stormy. Varmer lidt på læberne. Giver 6, fordi jeg er overrasket over, at den faktisk godt kan drikkes alene
I ran out of Kraken Black Spiced and the store didnt have any in stock so i tried Morgan Black Spiced as Morgan Gold Spiced had always been reliable.
Not as sweet as Kraken which is very sweet, so if you prefer Black Spiced not tasting like vanilla essence then go Morgan instead of Kraken even though i personnaly prefer Kraken.
This is a good mixing rhum. In warm day glass filled with ice, cola, mint and this! Oh my!!
Its a dark rum, plenty of conplex flavours and mixes well with coke and a lime wedge. I find it goes great in an espresso martini.. instead of vodka. Its a big upgrade, one for all you rum lovers.
