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.
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.
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.
But rather, rum-spiced spice. Top shelf and self proclaimmed experienced drinkers will talk you out of this bottle, and some even with exaggerated reviews. But this rum is something different; extremely spiced, sweet and with a burning, pepper-like aftertaste.
This is the dare-your-buddies kind of stuff, not a taster's choice. Fun to have.
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.
We definitely couldn't put our finger on what exactly it tasted like, one shot was all we could stand to try and were too scared to try to mix it with anything else. Maybe one day when we are desperate or need to teach one of our kids a lesson if they get caught drinking.
This tastes like an experiment. By that I mean you can't put your finger on what it tastes like, it's a mystery, it tastes like they added random flavorings, and sold an experiment. Almost like one of those test 'limited time' drinks.
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 love rum. Just saw this at a bar and the bartender was nice enough to give me a generous sample. Loved it! It's exactly what it was created for. Shots! Incidentally I got one mixed with Coke as a 'traveling' cocktail and it was great. Do not fear this if you drink rum.
A fun shot that leaves everyone guessing what fruity cereal it tastes like. More so, a great conversation piece....the taste and the bottle.
This is a great drink to take straight shots of no chaser needed I see a lot of people saying it's spicy but to me it tastes like a like hard candy literally amazing
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.
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?
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..
As a fan of The Captain, I had to try it ! I don't know if it's rum, I guess there is rum in it. The first thing that hits you is the bottle of course, quite a novelty and great party starter. Raise a shot and you get a lot of orange and spice to the nose, the flavour is who knows what, Orangina and Rum ? Swallow it down, then the pepper starts to warm you from within. Fire Two ! You know what they say 1 is not enough but 3 are too many. For $12 dollars it's a blast :-) and a little more fun than Jägermeister ;-)
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...
This is an odd flavored rum (and I do mean flavored rum, not spiced rum). It smells and tastes of lime, and the taste also includes jalapeno. Although that's a little odd, I find this rather tasty for a flavored rum.
One of my better liked flavored rums.
Quite possibly my favorite rum for shots alongside Tattoo. First off, the cannonball-shaped bottle is extremely cool. The rum has a very pleasant smell, orangey and sweet. It tastes similar to the way it smells and it goes down very smoothly. My only wish is that it had a higher percentage of alcohol in it.
