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.
Avoid this rum it's a nasty excuse to get rid of cheap vanilla essence.
A simple classic mixer from my college days, it will always have a place in my heart. Going back to it now, it's a mouthful of vanilla, but still fun and drinkable.
Not a bad choice for a first rum, with coke it becomes somewhat of a starter drink. Caramel and vanilla evident, making coke a fine pairing but I switched to club soda to cut calories and the foul morning after taste coke leaves
Nothing wrong with it when mixed with coke. Pretty much cheap summer classic, but I cant find anything to enjoy when drinking alone.
What is there to say... Capt and Coke please. Not as good as others, but it works.
The nose explodes on vanillin and lemon with hint of honey. In the mouth, we find the vanilla with milk chocolate. Do not look for a final and aftertaste with this rum but rather the way to create an original cocktail with ...
I’m a Spiced Rum guy so if I’m sipping it, or using it in a craft cocktail, it needs to have personality. Captain Morgan is not that, although it would be a crime to give it anything less than 5/10. It’s not bad, it’s generic, and works perfectly with Coke or Ginger. Should always have a bottle on hand if you’re a fan of simple mixed rum drinks.
Нет яркого вкуса, хотя ромовый аромат присутствует. Отдаёт дешёвой спиртягой. Возможно, в коктейлях норм.
Doesn't have rich flavour. Some rum-like aroma is present, but with cheap spirit harshness. Maybe it's good in cocktails, but not as a sipper.
S colou sa dá vypiť,inak to za veľa nestojí. Morgan určite nepatrí medzi triedu rumov,ktoré by človek opakovane vyhľadával,ak si môže dovoliť viac.
A traditional rum that is best mixed in your favorite drink. It's a good starting rum but soon you discover better and more distinct rums to enjoy.
Cheap, to sweet, rum flavoured liqueur.
I rather use Bacardi to mix it with coke.
El peor ron que tome en mi vida, jarabe de vainilla y alcohol.
Someone who's calling this a rum I think is sayin whisky to southern comfort 🤪🤢
Halt ein spiced Rum, recht süss mit viel Vanille und Weihnchtsgewürz geschmack.
Etwas zum Mixen.
If you are desperate and have little choice this works but honestly, go with the Bacardi Oakheart alternative which is in a similar price point but has superior qualities. Its not close. Can you imagine sipping this? We include it in blind taste tests to prove the point. You can do better. The glimmer of hope is based on reformulating this stuff given the competition now makes this obsolete.
I enjoy this drink.
It has a beautiful spice taste to it. Maybe just a little powerful but not disheartening.
Its not smooth and causes a nice little bite going down with the spice kicking in afterwards.
Well done n good pirates bottle hahaha
Hi everyone I’m gay and I reallllllllllllllllllllly don’t like gays
You know what you get with the Cap’n. Definitely the best rum to start with as it gives you a good baseline moving forward. Just make sure you don’t stick to morgans for too long as there are much better runs to experiment.
A bit alcoholic with synthetic flavoring, but it works. Taste is on par with pfice and shortcomings are clear if consumed on ice or neat.
So this stuff goes great in coke. Adds a really full spicy body like cinnamon and vanilla flavors, really brings out the awesomeness that is coca cola.
I'll sip it in a pinch because it really isn't bad rum, it just lacks the subtler qualities that make a truly great sipper. It definitely sips easier with a cube or two in it, which of course kills the effect of a neat glass of rum. That's just personal preference though I guess.
Is it even really rum. Is ok with some cola of there is nothing else to drink. Don't understand how it is so popular
If you’re after a sweet mixer rum this is it. Tonnes of vanilla and sugar
This is cheap commercial rum and is really hard to find something good in taste or smell. Only one good thing is that there are worse rums.
