Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold 35% (Jamaica)
Nose: Pretty forward smell of hard lemon drops, public toilet, industrial soap, faint vanilla, over ripe fermented honey dew melon and something like sour star fruit. Very light and thin impression. It also reeks of old fridge-damaged vegetables. There is also something that has a slight resemblance of light, cheap chocolate.
Mouth: Sugar and diluted eau-de-vie with a twist of lemon and artificial vanilla sugar. It is thin and unrefined with no trace of self-worth or dignity. This is the captain of a sinking ship in lukewarm salty water. For a second I thought I sensed cinnamon but that could be wishful thinking.
Reaction: I have had this in coke with ice before and have enjoyed hundreds of them. Now I wonder why? Well, I was young and stupid - just like this beverage right here. Maybe it is unfair to taste it as a sipping rum but at the same time, and in all fairness, a drink should be able to stand on its own I think. How else can I compare? Well, this may be the last I see of this horrible rum-like booze.
Price: 243 SEK
Tasted: 2016, in a Riedel Sommelier Cognac XO glass at room temperature.
It is the best rum to drink with coke.
But to drink plane i guess it is to cheap. To have that great taste.
Légèrement trop vanillé mais bon pour mélanger avec du coca
Évidement ce n'est pas un rhum agricole. Parfait pour les cocktails ou juste une autre version de mojito
Price is okey, and for coctails its fine. Like spiced more.
This, to me, is not a true rum due to all the additives. So artificial.
Not much to say. Drinkable with cola and that's what it's made for. No drink for sippers. A five because it's judged as a mixer
It is not really a sipper but it is ok in a blend.
Cheap and easy to find. Decent mixer but much better rums to be drank. This or Bacardi are my go to in a bar setting.
Děkuji, ale nechci. Tento rum mi nechutná. Přesně podle jejich reklamy. Maximálně s kolou.
Watery and sugary. Disappears in a mixed drink, which I guess is a good thing. Spices aren't really discernable. Meh....
Way too much vanilla in this rum which impacts the rum taste so much that you might forget you're drinking rum.
I'm still pretty new to rum and this is a friend's go to drink. Strong vanilla taste with a little spice. Best in Coke, at least to me.
New to the rum culture, started with this rum as a general 'go to' beginner drink.
Mainly enjoyed it with a cola mixer over ice.
Not too sharp and extremely easy to drink - (This is only my humble opinion as I am just starting my rum journey)
You know, it's not too bad. It's better than several other cheap, non-aged rums. I can even sip it (I'm not a cocktail person). But I'd rather sip more sophisticated rums... My friend keeps stealing my bottles anyway, so I stopped keeping this "in stock".
Alter, im Mix mit Cola ist der super lecker. Wirklich wie Vanille Cola, fast schon gefährlich, weil das so lecker ist und kaum nach Alkohol schmeckt.
it's ok there are other better rums around ... decent for it's price
Smells very syrupy sweet with a hint of alcohol, dosn't burn the nose. The taste is not great it's almost bittersweet but seems to possess a very off, chemically unnatural flavour and then a burst of ethanol, and leaves a strange aftertaste. I am not sure whether I prefer this to the Morgan Dark, both okay as a mixer but if I had a choice I would certainly pick other rums in that price range.
A boire en cocktail, avec du coke. Pas exceptionnel mais à partager avec des amis en début de soirée.
Le spiced de base...
Spiced so-called, with a hint of Vanilla and "zest" of a Lemon.
Definitely more like a liqueur than a Rum.
Not easy for mixer.
Not enjoyable as straight.
Good to keep it around for lesser mortals, and school nights. Cherry or Vanilla Coke, with cherries on a stick. Lots of ice
Not a good rum mostly mixed with cola ... Cheap rum equals cheap taste ..
Not for sipping! okay for mixed drinks, wellpriced for that purpose.
Basic rhum used with Cola, good enough to party for cheap drinking of rhum Taste for beginners.
The affordable choice for mixing with a coke or ginger ale atleast when i am in a bar this is the reccuring option for that. Have enjoyed to many good moments with the Captain to rate it any lower ;-)
