Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Thats my best mixer with cola and limes so far. Cheers
disappointing expected more clear barrel taste but I v got spice box
Has a lovely nose to it , i could smell this for a while.. very nice. Tried it straight and although quite sippable it tasted very sweet and artificial.. nice spices and a bit of liquorice. When mixed with cola it tasted like perfume ?? Not that im a big fan of Kraken but that would be my choice..
First blackstrap rum i have tasted.
Nose: strong vanilla, cinnamon and licorice
Palate: very sweet, strong taste of vanilla, mix of spices, cinnamon and licorice, charred oakiness, light eucalyptus note.
Finish: Quite unpleasant burn and bitterness.
Overall: This is almost as sugared as spiced gold (which is horrible stuff) but thankfully this rum has enough of complexity and bold flavours that are not too artificial.
It is okay mixer rum.
Works well in cocktails like flips and as a tiki floater.
Věřím,že do míchaček skvělý rum. Pro popíjení ze skleničky, se tomuto rumu raději vyhněte.
Très sucré, goût de cannelle et d'épices prononcé. Le taux d'alcool élevé mais le goût sucré prend le dessus sur l'alcool.
Bon pour les drinks!
I prefer black rum and the Captain is good. But after trying Cruzan Blackstrap I find the Captain wanting in flavor and aroma. Don’t be afraid to try it it if you like black rum. Might fit your palate just fine.
Definitely not recommendable even for drinking together with coke. For approx. equal price buy a bottle of Havana Club Anejo Especial or Pampero Anejo Especial. 5%
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.
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.
