Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is on the sweet side, better than the original due to the more complex deeper flavor but it still has a slight fuel-like finish. I also tried this with root beer against the original and I prefer the dark. Agree with others that Kraken is a better choice for a black spiced rum.
Docela pitelný a zajímavý, s hezkým vtipem na vnitřní straně etikety.
Not bad at all, it tastes very vanilla like, and mixes well with cola.
i first tasted this on holiday in the states and have had to ask a relative who lives there to bring me a bottle back every time they visit. Nice spicy pleasant taste,love it with coke and a slice of lime.
Dark color with notes of Vanilla. Best With cola .
Strong enough and smooth enough at the same time.
I saw this bottle at local liquer store, and it was going out of market, so i decided to give this one a shot. or two.
Well, the colour atleast is kinda exiting. Also the when i opened the bottle it iimidietly gave me a nice hint of maybe herbs and spices similar to jägermeister.
First sip, got me a bit confused, but after second one, it just kept going better and better. You really "grow in" to like this one, for me its not for to be consumed at once. Rather let it stay in cabin for week, couple shots in the evenings, really nice. Especially in autumn, when its gettin a bit colder, this is a ideal to have in a small flask when going to parks or small hikes.
To say the least this is an interesting rum. At first it was not on my good list. But after having the bottle around for over a week i have grown to like it a lot . My rule is if i can't drink it neat then it sucks. i can take this straight from the bottle no problem. Chilled or room temperature it rocks either way. i will definitely keep some of this around...especially for very cool nights. It's a strong taste, no doubt. Sipping and swallowing slowly let the flavors develop into a pretty neat surprise. i can see where this isn't everybody's thing. It's stout and spicy. i prefer it straight up better than on the rocks. I didn't love it at first but i most certainly do love it now.
This rum has a real bad finish but tasteful start
Dark color with Notes of Vanilla rich in flavor very smooth
A failed attempt to ride the wave created by Kraken rum. They should be ashamed of its artificiality.
If you are looking for something slightly different than normal capt. this is it. Did not try straight, but mixed with coke.
This rum has a heavy taste, that in some ways reminds me of cough syrup. It tastes better mixed with cola to cover it up.
I think this might break someone from drinking Dark rum before it breaks them in. Its black, its rum , and its spiced. Thats about all it has in common with Kraken.
This is a rum beginners guide to the universe...smooth, full of flavor and not overpowering...something to be used to break a person into the world of rum drinking.
If you love Kraken, but can't get it at your local store, see if you can find the Captain Morgan Black. It's full-flavored, dark, with a little bit of a bite. Not as smooth and well-rounded as Kraken, but still very good.
Seriously just buy some vanilla extract.
Under "I prefer this" they need a choice "in someone else's glass.'
I bought this to compare to The Kraken. It lacks the flavour The Kraken has. While it is OK with a great dark colour it is not much different than regular Captain Morgan and isn't as unique as The Kraken
Another spiced rum black in color
This is a great cooking Rum!
Good with Coke, but Kraken is better in this category.
I knew trying it for the first time that I was drinking a Kraken clone. It has the color and the texture, but none of the subtle after taste and buzz that makes Kraken so special. Sorry Captain Morgan...
just a clone of kraken which is much better
