Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Captain Morgan Spiced Rum is made by combining yeasts, molasses, water and mash, which are then distilled in a continuous still. The rum is aged for up to 1 year followed by the addition of spices and flavors indigenous to the Caribbean Islands.
Captain Morgan Spiced is owned by Diageo and produced in Puerto Rico by the famous Destilieria Serralles, Inc. The company Captain Morgan is named after the 17th-century Welsh privateer of the Caribbean, Sir Henry Morgan was an admiral in the Royal British Navy who earned a knighthood in 1674.
This has a pleasant vanilla, honey, and marshmallow smell and taste to it, albeit it seems to lack a solid core rum flavor (maybe I've gotten too used to aged rums). Quite easy drinking and smooth at only 35%, but again, it seems to lack a core rum flavor and is somewhat artificial tasting.
It was the first rum I have tasted and it was not that good to be honest. It is okay when mixed with cola but do not expect anything great. If you do not have money for something better, and want to drink rum with your friends on a party, this one will do just fine. Do not even think to drink it straight up... seriously.
Sugar: 43 gpl. This is basically a light white rum with caramel and some baking spices. The flavors would be lost in anything you mixed it with leaving you with just the rum effects. If you run out of unflavoured rum and are mixing drinks, this will do in a pinch. I am not saying it's a bad rum, but if you don't like the bolder tastes of other spiced rums, this one might be for you. There are better spiced rums, but for bars and budgets this will do just fine.
The first rum I had, good for mixing and its cheap, but not overly nice on its own. Good with coke.
Good if you have little change to spare and still want an okay drink.
They should rename this stuff "Candy Morgan" because that's what it taste like...Go for Brugal or Kraken, you'll thank me for spending the extra scratch for a Rum that doesn't make you want to writhe on the floor in disgust..
Even with coke, a lot of coke, you still get that ugly alcohol bite. Tastes like chemical. I prefer Sailor Jerry over this every time.
I tasted it straight, but perhaps it would do better as a mixer.
Bedre en min forventning om en rom kun for unge brus hoveder
Det er denne rom til gengæld også fremragende til. Husker tilbage til mine unge dage, hvor Morgen og cola var min hof drik. Heldigvis bliver man klogere med tiden.
Strong vanilla flavor. Not much else in the way of complexity, but was enjoyable to drink sitting around a campfire on a long bikepacking adventure.
A cheap rum but i wouldn't drink it straight or on the rocks. Good for a night of heavy drinking, it is cheap. But not to sit down and enjoy a good rum.
Great as a mixer, with pepsi, ginger ale, or sprite, my go to favorite for mixing
As a cheap mixing rum Captain Morgan delivers. Personally It's good to try at least once, but otherwise I wouldn't bother.
It's not meant to be a premium rum, and it shows.
I was in Anticipation to open this bottle as it was my first Captain Morgan, having left it on the shelf as an economical choice, I thought "what could it hurt?". I was not entirely disappointed. Unbottling reveals a swarm to the senses, vanilla dominates all round and your first glimpses of the spices are revealed. (I will not cause boredom on details of aromas I caught but it was pleasant all round). Aroma carries nicely into flavouring with no oddities or surprises from nose to mouth, this is a strength of the rum I believe.
I tired very quickly of taste neat, so experimented with mixers. This is where this shines through and creates a drop with utility. At approx $40NZD, this would be an easy road introduction for first time spiced rum tasters. Personally, I avoid spiced rums finding their overused flavoring too in the face. I didn't mind the good Captain, although, I would not purchase again the experience too short lived and tiresome.
Well it beat's tea or ice water if those are your only options. One of the staple brands served on my SPI and anything on the island you can't go wrong with.
This is what you drink when you know you are too drunk to appreciate a sipping rum and it's time to move onto a long drink. A store cupboard emergency standby.
This like many people would say, is my first introduction to rum, really decent, sweet, likeable enough, although I've experienced better even though I wouldn't pass on it either.
Nice color, powerful on the nose, nice mixing rum. Pour in some apple juice or cola add some ice and enjoy. Not the best spiced rum but far from the worst. The go to bargain rum in a pinch!
Prefer Capt. Morgan over Bacardi anytime. Still like Raken for a spiced rum for mixing.
If you love rum drinks and have no money then buy a bottle.
With coke this is my day to day drink - not one for savouring and would only ever have as a mixer but still love it's simplicity
this was the first spiced rum I ever tasted, ok as a mixer
This is the rum that introduced me to the wide variety that there is available. This rum is a great one to keep in the cabinet to share with visitors or people who may not know better. I would not drink this straight and enjoy it with coke. Generally though if I see another option available in the bar or cabinet I would usually sooner choose the other.
