Serious improvement needed
This isn't the spiced rum that you buy by the gallon in the US. I wonder if that's what a lot of the other reviewers were looking for. This is a Jamaican Rum made by Wray & Nephew. A bit young, but drinkable. It has a light and creamy nose, a crisp, dry mouth feel with a bit of oakiness, but not much funk (which I was expecting, even hoping for). It has long finish with just a little heat, this would mix well in punches and tiki drinks.
There appear to be a few cases of mistaken identity with this particular bottle. The packaging appears to be discontinued in the Netherlands, it is now branded as CM dark rum with no mention of origin. Same stuff, same huge amounts of froth, same great taste with coke.
How to do a Jamaican rum badly , yes I thought I would never type that sentence . Awful stuff but genuinely better than normal production rubbish from the captain ... Where's the god dam funk!
So what to say about this one. I usually talk about the bottle, colour and taste, but here, all I can say is this: the bottle looks like a captain morgan bottle. The colour is nicely dark, but the taste is horrible. Very flat, no real flavours and the scent is very disappointing as well. I don't recommend to anyone, as is the tradition with all captain morgan "rums". Pretty much just weakly flavored alcohol, won't drink again.
If there is nothing else at hand, then sure... But the taste is not smooth at all. The sweet taste of pleasantly mild rhum is not there, but more a strong alcohol. Even with cola, it leaves a bit of a shit taste in your mouth
Strong and not suitable for sipping. It has a sharp alcoholic smell and if you’re using this rum in a cocktail: use a small amount or else it will ruin the drink!
With coke and ice and as a last resort when the bartender looks at you stunned when you ask if they have any other rum behind the counter ... good for duty free and lighting a fire
