Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The aroma in the bottle is acceptable. Nothing outstanding.
Sampling some straight reveals a strong mix of indeterminate spices. However whatever the spices are the aftertaste is bitter and unpleasant. Definitely needs to be drowned in cola. But there are many other spiced rums that are readily available that are much better quality.
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.
Sweeter spiced taste - like this kind of rums.
Not so smooth as the Kraken rum, but very similar.
Good as the pleasant end of the night before you say goodbye to your friends.
Rather tasty, although lacking in subtlety & distinct flavourings. I personally found it goes down well both neat and mixed. Cap'n Coke surprised me with how well the two combined.
However, it leaves a bit of an oily sensation in the mouth that eventually overpowered me.
Tenhle pan kapitán ok, pokud chcete nasládlou záležitost. Koření, vanilka, skořice. Jistá podobnost s Krakenem, ale za mě mezi těmito lahvemi bych sáhl asi po této. Řadím do kategorie babské pití, což neznamená nic špatného. Salut Mr. Captain Morgan
Zakúpené v tescu a následne zdegustovane v príjemnej spoločnosti. Na mňa príliš sladký.
Vanilka. Vanilka. Vanilka.
A s kofolou je z toho uzasny drink plné chuti a vuně sladkeho koreni.
Samotne to moc na piti neni.
Vytecne take a jablecnym mostem.
I might have had a bad bottle but I found this to be undrinkable. Smelt like ethanol and bush fire. Tastes like sweet dirty charcoal. Harsh to swallow.
Much better than Kraken. Goes perfect with sprite and sitting around a camp fire.
The best spiced rum i have tasted (straight) so far ,but the list isnt long.
...which is understandable. There are certainly some similarities.
Personally, I'd put this below Kraken, though feel that those who like this style of rum should try Black Magic, which is, in my opinion, superior to both.
Nothing special. Ordinary basic rum for start. I think most comercialized rum. Another rum for normal day
