Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Not for mixing or for having a glass full. Has a warming flavor with just a hint of jalapeño flavor and warmth. Just do a shot.
Someone else mentioned Fruity Pebbles cereal - pretty accurate if you ask me. It has a unique taste to it and I think it is best mixed with Dr. Pepper. It's kinda weird, but kinda good at the same time. Good for parties. Perfect for "Talk Like A Pirate" Day.
Great for sipping over ice or mixed with ginger ale. Doesn't have that strong bite like most aged rums. Yes it is sweet but rums main ingredient is sugar cane. If you want barrel taste with a bite, drink bourbon.
For some reason when I take a swig of this it taste just like froot loops. It's definitely different.
Cannon blast holds up to what it's trying to portray. This will never be a sipping rum or a good mixer. It's a fun shot that you take with your buddies and the bottle is a conversation piece that's it.
Well this is a "Fun" rum, you can drink it straight but could be used in "Chicky" drinks. Sweet and lots of citrus to enjoy. Not your typical rum..
I like Captain Morgan products and had to try the Cannon Blast. It is a decent shot with some bite. I taste the peppery bite and a spice - nutmeg or clove with a hint of orange. I have only used for shots and have not experimented with mixing, although the ginger ale that one reviewer mentioned would be worth a try. I will keep some of this around to share with friends. Also, a cool bottle.
Work like a captain
Party like a pirate
And this rum had the pirate out in me drink it strait up with a fat line
Doesn't seem to mix well with anything, however, I don't believe that was their intention. This is a shooter and is fun and unique, but just does not feel like a rum. It feels like a party drink already made, and where is the fun in that?
Pours like syrup. Flavor is spicy but overpowered with lemon and a hint of orange. Gross as a shot, weird with coke. Was recommended to pour a shot into a beer. Used landshark (mediocre lager) it made something between a Shandy and a blue moon with an orange. Kinda reminded me of tequiza from back in the day. Not good, not bad. I think this is catering to the frat house crowd.
There's a taste to this that reminds me of the "spicy" cinnamon hearts we used to get as kids.
A fun shot that leaves everyone guessing what fruity cereal it tastes like. More so, a great conversation piece....the taste and the bottle.
The bottle is cool, but the drink itself tastes like biting into orange peels
As the title says, this captain is very sweet and reminds me of fruity Pebbles cereal.
Captain Morgan brings out special products every so often and then they are gone. Some are quite good, others not so much. This is marginal at best, unless you love cinnamon, then you’ll love it. Not for me.
On ice, this could be sipped. Very sweet, a little syrupy, heavily flavored. Lemon, pepper, something kicky... (jalapeno?) Not a particularly good rum, but it has a neat flavor, easily drinkable with Coke (or Diet Pepsi, which is what I'm currently drinking). Makes a decent shot, especially if you're in college. Neat bottle. Nothing to rave about, but it's fun.
Captain Morgans attempt at a specialty shot, like fireball. Citrusy and fruity with a bit of a spicy bite. I had too much one night. Now i cant touch the stuff. Thank god it wasnt a good rum. Awesome bottle though.
I had high hopes for the Cannon blast but was left with with, not so, fond memories of nausea and sickness. This rum was way too spiced, with an initial taste of cough syrup. The consistency was about the same as cough syrup so I imagine this rum would be ideal for a hot tottie.
Not what I was expecting. I was afraid to have at a party at my home because I had visions of the cannonball being chucked across the room. I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor. Just add ice.
there was a cinnamon flavor to it, but over all i found it too sweet. this would be a mixing rum. my wife enjoyed it with some cola.
It might have been that I wa so utterly disgusted with the the other rum we were tasting that night (Pumpkin Face White) , but I was pleasantly surprised by the Captain Morgan Canon Blast.
Sure, it won't make the snob list of the top 10 (or even top 100) "best" rums in the world, but it honest to what it says it is and what it's supposed to be.
As far as I can tell , it pretty much a Captain Morgan Private Stock with spices and herbs added to it.
It's pretty good as a "drop shot" (what it is promoted as), but I found it even more interesting in a "Cuba Libre". The Cola and lime added a nice touch to the herbs of the rum.
ADDED BONUS: close all the light in the room, turn on a black light and take another look at the bottle...
I tried a couple small 1oz bottles over ice. It was OK. I like plain Captain better
I believe in reviewing things for their intended purpose. For instance, Fireball is horrible as a whisky. But 3 am at Burning Man when you are getting your second or third wind and about to head back out of camp into Black Rock City and a chilled handle gets passed to you, it really hits the spot. Yes it's a gimmick, but it's supposed to be. As a shot, it's okay. Lemony with a sweet habanero finish. But personally I think this works best with ginger ale. It makes a very nice cocktail. This is not what I'm going to reach for when I want to relax on the porch with a good rum. But when it's a red solo cup event, this is good weapon to have in the arsenal. Also the bottles make very cool cannon ball tiki torches when you are done.
Imma just say, it's a one and done for me!!! Something about it just makes me not wanna drink ever again. So, I'm pretty sure it'll be sittin on my shelf for a good 2+yrs
