Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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...
Yet another offering from the junk factory. This stuff is for college kids who don't care whose shoes they're gonna puke on at the end of the night. It is no spicier than children's candy (Atomic Fireballs) and no more delicious than medicine. If you drink enough of it you won't care where you throw up...but at least you'll know why you did.
Awful. Horrendous. Should be criminal. This stuff is absolutely revolting.
Whoever came up with the idea for this mess should be charged with a felony.
As soon as I press the "Post my rating!" button, I'm flushing this down the toilet into the septic tank.
I get it, and i think they meant well but honestly i think this tastes like cough syrup... i drink a glass of rum with coke for color... the opposite is true with this guy... i prefer tatoo
I bought a couple of bottles of this for a Halloween party and no one drank more than one shot of it. I'm not sure what that after taste is but I couldn't give it away at the end of the night.
This Captain is my second most favorite of all of them, it's citrus flavors mixed with the Jalapeno and heat is amazing., Great as a shot or mixed with Lemonade. Love it so much and the bottle is so cool.
Sugar: 30 to 40 gpl. This is gimmicky but it works. I bought this rum for the cannon ball bottle it comes in. For taste it's Rum mixed with Lime and Pepper! I checked the Captain Morgan website to find out more and it refers to Chipotle and Jalapeano as the peppery ingredients! If you are doing shots and pretending to be a Pirate or daring your pals to try it, then this works. The only thing I would mix this with is a beer chaser or drop a shot of this into a glass of beer. Otherwise it doesn't taste that good on it's own. It is worth having on the shelf just for the fun of it! Taste is a 2, but I give this bonus points for the bottle.
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.
Let's be clear, this is designed and created to be taken as a shot. If you try to sip on this be prepared to be upset. However, it's not as bad as the rum snobs claim it to be! It's fairly strong all the way through but has a sweeter follow-through. It's basically a ready-to-drink shot but also a good mixer in a long island iced tea or Mai Thai if your looking to spice it up. Fairly cheap and most places carry an airliner of it to try. 7/10.
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.
This stuff is a bit more unique from other rums I have tried. Smells of orange citrus, vanilla, with a slight cinnamon.
Strong orange or citrus taste, followed by a bite of habenaro spice that's not hot but lasts.
It's a nice tasting rum even though I'm not a fan of the Capt.
Do shots with it, that's what it's for.
This has a very interesting nose and flavor. It has the smell of lemon drops and coca-cola, and tastes very interesting. Although a little sweet/ artificial for my taste. Good for shots or as a mixer.
I have a preconceived disgust with captain Morgan. This one doesn’t change my view. Artificial flavours, overly sweet chemical tones and no redeeming qualities. Cool bottle tho
Nice change to your rum drinking routine. It's a great citrus-y, spicy treat. I can't really taste the rum, but it's great for something sweeter and different. Definitely worth trying out.
This was given to me as a gift because my friend knew I liked Rum. Aroma wasn’t terrible but wasn’t great either. Never consider it for anything other than a mixer and it failed miserably in that role for me.
Taste terrible sent it home with a friend wouldn’t have it in my bar can’t believe Captain would make something so bad!
I'm not too much of a fan of Captain original, but this stuff is actually pretty good. It has a nice dark hue, but it's not a black rum. It has hints of lime, an orange taste(almost like grand marnier), a nice coca taste, caramel. It's great just on the rocks or straight. It's smooth @ 70 proof(very drinkable). It puts Tattoo to shame, which in my opinion is Captian's worst.
I received this bottle as a gift. As far as CM products go this was better then expected but not good enough to place in my cabinet. Citrus flavour mixed with spice? Not your typical rum! But good for a novelty shot with friends before bringing out the good stuff
I think Cannon Blast is great for shots and to get the party going. Not need to add or mix anything, as the fireball flavor with a dash of citrus makes Cannon Blast a very nice shot.
