Flawed with a glimmer of hope
This is actually a decent rum, though it has more of a sugary flavor than a coconut flavor.
Tastes of sweet coconut and sugar with a light hint of citrus.
This is the epitome of sickenly sweet. Artificially flavored. I won't waste time writing anything more. Avoid this "rum" at all costs.
Sugar: 45 to 50 gpl. Basic white rum with lots of sugar and coconut flavoring is how I would describe this. I did not detect a strong chemical smell or taste that I expected from this rum, but there is a trace of it. The coconut flavor is overshadowed by the sugar. It's another specialty mixing rum for the Captain. The Parrot Bay and Blue Chair coconut rums are better tasting. I am thinking of calling an intervention on myself as I need to stop trying these rums. Damn you Las Vegas.
My go-to for the price. Great if you like sweet tropical cocktails. Mixes well with nearly everything. Always on my shelf.
Super super super sweet more like a coconut syrup with coconut flavoring. Decent for a mix, but not much else.
Best used in a piña colada type drink, though it's not horrible drunk neat. Good for a coconut flavor. Otherwise, it's got a very basic rum flavor with a strong coconut flavor.
I'm not a huge fan of coconut rums. There are a couple I like (Gubba Silver, Siesta Key Toasted Coconut, etc ...), but this pretty much exemplifies the rum plus suntan lotion standard. It's cheap enough to mix in a huge punch bowl, but it's not my go-to.
I tried a little bit of this while mixing cocktails at a friend's place.
It's like summer in a bottle! You know, coconuts, spray-on sunscreen, pool water... summer things! Stupid sweet. Super smooth. It tastes ok. I will never, ever buy a bottle of this.
In all honesty, I see reasons to score this anywhere from 1 to 5, so we're just gonna go with 3 I guess....
Captain Morgan Coconut could be used as a coconut flavored drainage cleaner. It is not suitable for neat sipping. There's way too much sugar, artificial flavors and the alcohol smell and burn is like coconut flavored rubbing alcohol.
Not sure what to say other than there is a reason flavoring is added. This is just not a good dring unless you mix it heavily. Astringent alcohol flavor that is only partially masked by the coconut flavoring.
