Tasty, but not quite great
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.
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.
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.
