Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I like very smooth, slightly sweet sipping rums. This one is not really a smooth sipping rum. But it truly is tasty and interesting with a nice little bite. It's price to flavor ratio gives it a 7 in my book.
Perfect for shots, which is exactly what it's designed for. I'd purchase it again.
After 15 years of aged rum tastings I ventured to try out the Captain Morgan Cannon Blast. Such an overwhelming amount of artificial cinnamon flavors that it tastes really offputting. For your own sanity, go right now to your closest liquor store and buy a bottle of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, try it out and you will never ever even think about Captain Morgan again.
The top 10 worst rums I have ever tried:
1. Barbancourt 4y / 8y / 15y
2. Bounty Dark Rum from Fiji
3. Stroh 40 / 80
4. Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
5. Villa Rica 23y
6. Mocambo 15y / 20y
7. Captain Morgan different variations
8. Don Papa 10y / 15y
9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
It's sweet, but it has a warm feeling after you drink it has a cinnamon taste.
Nasty. It tastes like chemicals, it smells like chemicals, and it doesn't make a very good mixer because no one wants more chemical flavor in their cokes. I love the packaging, and I always have one on hand because of that, but it is not for consumption.
My son was ranting and raving about how good this stuff was. I took a taste and spit it out. Nasty would be a improvement
this is the bet mixing rum i own, AMAZING. I truely enjoy it.
Totally got me with the promotions on this one. It is rough on the way down. The overall flavor isn't too bad but it is a cheap rum
Me and my friend drank this tonight. Took 7 shots to finally get fuckin drunk & it tasted like ass. Like literally worst shit I've ever tasted in my life. Whoever invented this needs to go to jail. I wamted to set it on fire but my friend said no. If not I would've. I feel bad but not really. like a little bit. Discontinue this shit before I call the cops
Obviously not fit for consumption. Using it as a car parts solvent now and it's doing a half decent job. Unfortunately, the parts will need some time to air out the horrible stench of said solvent.
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.
Not good. Smells like Dr pepper. Tastes like a mouth full of black pepper soaked in lime juice. This would probably make a great wings marinade, but I definitely don't recommend actually drinking it.
I'm a fan of flavored rums, this was tough to swallow, literally. Syrupy sweet. Hint of citrus laced with kerosene. Ice cold shot was about the only way to get it down.
I'd pass on this one.
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.
It burned quite a bit and the lime flavor to it was not pleasant
Nose = Angostura Orange Bitters - cardamom + water
Palate: not the right word. Tastes like molasses soaked oranges with a hint of baking spice.
Finish is wonky and off-putting. It's something medicinal, and not the romanticized scotch-ey sense, but medicinal as in it tastes like a bizarrely sweet cough syrup.
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.
Fortunately, it's small size made it easy to throw away.
You have to be really desperate to try this on a regular basis. Either you are short on imagination or on moolah either ways this donkey's piss is not worth a second look.
I am a fan of citrus flavors, so this rum is a nice addition to our collection. I realize it doesn't suit everyone's taste, but we enjoy it on occasion. I do not agree with the comments that compared this to cough syrup, but again .. individual tastes and preferences.
I tried this every way, neat, little water, rocks, mixed and couldn't find a good way to enjoy this.
A reasonable drink when mixed with a punch or cola at a party, and the bottle is a nice talking point, but for the real rum connoisseur the gimmick will fade away quickly, not to be taken seriously. Avoid drinking straight.
This stuff is awful. Can't believe Captain Morgan put something like this out
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.
