Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Does what it says on the tin, 'cheap and cheerful'. Not the worst tasting but not the best, wont break the bank.
Has to be mixed
This not be a sippin' rum. Not unless you already be three sheets to the wind, you just don't care, or you gave up the ghost weeks ago. Aye, she smells nice. A little sweet, with a little vanilla, and the tiniest hint of oak. As taste goes, she's less sweet, but vanilla comes through more. Not pickin' up any other spices in this "spiced" rum. She be relatively smooth, but weak. Weak in flavor, and weak in body, like a swab on his first day at sea. Aye, there be better captains in this fleet, but this one? Be ready to pollute it up with any other libation you have on hand...
There is no reason why you should ever buy spiced rum. Add your own spices if you want spiced rum you don't know what the fuck they put in there.
There is also no reason why you should ever buy Captain Morgan or Bacardi.. There are so many options around the same price point that are way better, there is no reason for you to keep buying this garbage.
Stop following the crowd, and buy a good rum.
This is where rum begins for nearly everyone. As an introduction to rum you can do worse (*shudders at the thought of Kraken*) but of course you can do way better with a little research too. If you go to your local bar and order a rum drink, odds are this will be the rum they use (unless you ask for something else). It’s decent enough for what it is, just know that there is a whole universe of rums that are waaaay better and can be found with some research. Basically Capt Morgan Spiced is to rum what Jack Daniels is to whiskey.
I bought this in a supermarket in Edinburgh a couple of years ago. I was on a city trip with my wife and we wanted something to sip before going to sleep in our hotel. It should have been something in between the sweeter taste of my wife and my more adventurous taste. I am glad to say our marriage is a lot better than this.
Ok, this is a mass product to please the masses. Operates in the same market as Breezer and Vodka/Redbull 15 years ago and Hugo and those horrible sweet semi-cidres these days. The character comes mainly from sugar. Worst thing is that it doesn't even taste as horrible as some say, apart from the sugar overload, it is just going nowhere and you are not supposed to even think about that. But does it actually say rum anywhere on the label?
It is on Rumratings, I drank it once so I reviewed it. Can we get back to real rums now?
"It really is just vanilla, vanilla and a touch more vanilla. There is no subtlety, no hints of spices not even a hint of ginger or anything worth while. Its basically Vanilla flavoured rum."
