Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
At first I dismissed it as too sweet and syrupy, however now faithfully keep it with my other staples such as Kraken and Jerry's. Full, hot flavor, though it still contains too darn much chocolate and too much sugar. Kraken is absolutely the better drink by far. Still, CM Black-Spiced is a regular on my shelf.
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.
Smells like rum with chocolate, and tastes syrupy sweet like chocolate with cherries. Not a sipper, but makes a decent twist on a rum & coke.
I'm not one to drink my liquor on the rocks, but I don't use much pop either. I'm so glad I decided to try this. This stuff is delicious! The perfect amount of vanilla and spice with a strong oak smell and flavor. It's not too sweet and has character. Don't dismiss this stuff because of the brand.. They did a damn good job with this one.
Teally enjoyed it. Bought this without knowing it. Great drink, didnt like the taste neat, not at all. Will buy another cause the first one was gone to quickly.
Absolutely "okay". It's cheap and I'll give them that but it's not worth your time if you want to drink it as it is.
I would argue it tastes polluted and chemical. When I mixed it with regular coke I felt the strong taste of alcohol and strong flavours ruined the drink.
It seems like veryone wants to compare this one to kraken and I can understand that, I don't really have an argument for this one being worse other than that I enjoyed the kraken more. The taste felt more genuine I would describe it. And the kraken did better standalone (once more: IN MY OPINION).
I like this one, as I like kraken, in a coke. Has character and stands out in a mix.
The best that this rum has is its bottle (I really liked it). Nose: sharp and heavy. The taste is watery and bitter. There is a feeling that I do not drink rum, but medicine.
As a black spiced rum it reminds me of kraken, but it’s a touch better. Nice supper and mixer. It’s my wife’s favourite spiced rum.
I mainly get clove and vanilla. Not a whole lotta cassia to my tongue only because I really taste the sweetness of the vanilla so much. Still, not bad and you can certainly taste the higher acohol content. It smells amazing and I wish there was an aftershave with the scent, but it doesn’t taste how it smells unfortunately. 7/10
Very very sweet. Nice for mixing and give a nice smooth and round finish to R&C. Flavorfull but not refined.
Dobry rum se zazvorovym tonicem. Jako letni drink doporucuji.
After 15 years of aged rum tastings and after well over 600 aged rums later I ventured to try out the Captain Morgan Black Spiced rum for the very first time in my life. And the very last time. Such an overwhelming amount of artificial flavors that it tastes really offputting. For your own sanity, go right now to your closest liquor store and buy a bottle of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, try it out and you will never ever even think about Captain Morgan again.

9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
I am a very big fan of Capt. Morgan private stock I always thought it was a great rum and rivals the
much more expensive rums. As far as the Black spiced rum goes I feel that it is not nearly on the
same level. It is far to spicy which in my opinion takes away from any other flavors in the rum.
If they cut back on the spice a bit I think it would be far better.
This is far to sweet for me. I can drink 1 or 2 but no more than that.
Other than it’s vanilla bean aroma which is pleasant, this Rum is way overrated. I don’t mind it as a mixer but that where I stop. A good or great Rum should only be judged drinking it neat . Captain Morgan spiced neat is a disaster but it can pass as a mixer
Burned cask taste it said on the blurb on the shelf where I bought it and it's true. I rather like that taste and strong spice flavor. Not good on its own but fits well with coke or Dr pepper. I prefer kraken but this one was alright!
