Easily consumable in a bind
Bottled at 50% abv, the nose reminds me initially of powdered hot chocolate or packaged cake mix - fake but enticing... There is also a pleasant green lumber note in the nose that is not what I expected, in a good way. The palate has some sweetness, with faint spice but no readily discernible component tastes...and yet, it has a decent roundness and mouthfeel. I’m not a huge seeker of spiced rums and while this is no better than a 5, I was expecting much worse. I would never seek this out but in a pinch, it’s not terrible, either.
This one I have found to be a good rum to drink over ice if you like a stronger flavor than just the normal spiced rum. Some one mentioned better than Drano and I have to admit i have never tasted Drano so cant compare it LOL
I find with most spiced rums, they take away the taste of the original spirit. This is not too bad as far as it goes. Good for parties when mixed with coke.
Much kickier than regular Captain Spiced, but not just stronger tasting. This is a different taste altogether. Less vanilla, more nutmeg. No burn.
Smooth, but a little much for drinking neat or on ice. Mixes well with cola.
After 15 years of aged rum tastings and after well over 600 aged rums later I ventured to try out the Captain Morgan Bold Spiced rum for the very first time in my life. And the very last time. Such an overwhelming amount of artificial flavors that it tastes really offputting. For your own sanity, go right now to your closest liquor store and buy a bottle of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, try it out and you will never ever even think about Captain Morgan again.
