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.
Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Recently tasted this straight, at room temp and the word "fuel" came to mind. While there are better choices for mixers, it is good with root beer... or better yet, mix with root beer schanpps and pour over vanilla ice cream. Update: this is now my second choice with root beer. The dark version is better.
As I prefer my rums neat, my rating reflects such. This is certainly not a sipping rum. However, a very classic rum and coke! Love the vanilla spiced flavor mixed with cola and ice - a classic!

This is most people's entry to the world of spiced rum, but is unfortunately only popular due to its low price point and wide availability.
To its credit, Morgan's Spiced does match well with coke, if you don't mind the overpowering vanilla flavour. Ginger beer/ale is not such a good combination though, which is not something I should need to say about any rum.
I only order this, always with coke, when I'm stuck at a bar that has nothing better.
If you like vanilla this is for you other than that it's bland and incipid. If you like mixing it with other stuff it'll probably be ok.
Only worth drinking for drinking's sake. Not a tasty rum, but comes with the advantage of getting you too drunk to care. Unfortunately, (or fortunately, if you prefer) this is not a feature that sets it apart from other rums.
Cheap and user friendly as a basic mixer. I wouldn’t use in blends where the rum needs to stand on its own, but as a multiple ingredient blend it is fine, and it is tolerable in single mixer blends. Not something to sip.
