Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Friend says to me, "Hey, you like rum, try some of this." Well, I do indeed like rum, but this is not drinkable using any definition of rum. It smells like an infected wound, and it doesn't even taste as good as that. I can't imagine any situation where this would be an acceptable drink of choice. Gak.
I'm no rum snob, I like what I like. On the rox with a squeeze of lime. Spicy with a hint of raspberry. Also refreshing served in a tall glass as a rum and tonic.
One of my favorite rums. It's getting hard to find now, which is a shame. This rum is dark, sweet, and a little spicy. It smells and tastes like flat Coke or Pepsi with sweet, fruity undertones. It blends flawlessly with the aforementioned sodas and also works great as a shot.
I like Captain Morgan Tattoo. Unfortunately, it is no longer being produced from what I have found. Good spice with vanilla and cherry flavor. I prefer to mix with Dr. Pepper for an alternative to Capt. and cola. I also have mixed with Red Bull for a pick me up similar (but better) than a Jager bomb. I generally like some smoothness and sweetness with my rum that is why I like Tattoo. A bit harsh neat, but have mixed it with Cherry schnapps to add a little punch in a shot.
This is delicious if you like a coke or dr pepper mixer.
This rum has a different taste to it. Of all my friends I'm the only one who will drink this if it's around, which is good because then I don't have to share. I most likely wouldn't buy this one again and would try something new instead.
So so when tried neat.. But over ice with coke it is Dr. Pepper with a kick. Not my first choice...or my second. Picked this up on a whim because my "liquid gold" 1671 is no longer available. What a shame.
Bon rhum sucré et foncé. Ce mélange bien dans tout mixte mais garde le goût sucré malgré tout.
If you enjoy Dr.Pepper, this is for you. It has all of the signature flavors, thick and syrupy. This is the worst of the Captain's line I have ever had. Of course, being fair I do not like Dr. Pepper. This shouldn't be called rum by any sort of the imagination. This is more of a cordial or liqueur under a banner of rum. No fooling us Capt!
Just another one for the collection. Found this very cheap in a danish store, so what not to like?
I give this to my friends who pretend to be straight up rum drinkers. It's not bad, ands it's a fun drink for parties where there are a variety of tastes.
This could have been a good commercial grade dark rum but it just doesn't have it.
It says rum on the bottle, but as been said it doesn't fit the mold. At first from a marketing point of view I Thought this was a competitive jab at Sailor Jerry but it wasn't. It reminds me of the children's cough syrup mom gave me as a kid with its heavy cherry like flavour or a stronger version of Disaronno. I don't think that's a bad thing. For what it is I say drink up and enjoy.
Update: Tried Tattoo with some Dr. Pepper and it was pretty good, I know where another bottle is, I am pretty tempted to go back and get it because when they are gone they are gone !
it does look a lot like tattoo ink, so the name is fitting. My review is pretty much the same as the others. It has a slight cherry or cola taste and goes down smooth. Not too bad to mix with cola.
Love this Captain, the flavors are amazing and makes great Rum Balls, Love to drink this with Ginger Ale or Dry Ginger. It is my all time fav.
I have only ever had this once, and it was mixed with coke. If your friends have it, and you have coke, drink it. As for stand alone, I cannot attest to how it would work out. If you can find it cheap, and want a social drink, this will do the trick.
This is a good stand-alone drink to take as a shot to get your night started. It's not as harsh as regular captain and it taste like cherry.
This is a very unique rum. Smells a lot like cola; maybe even cherry cola. Taste is similar, but with a lot of spice; maybe pepper and allspice. Tastes more like a liqueur than a rum. Goes down easy at only 35%abv.
just a basic mix drink rum nothing special about it
This is definitely a cola-mixer rum. Adds some sweet molasses taste, and it's good when you want something a little different. Some bars use this as a rop shelf deink, which should warn you about the quality of their wells....
I've been told I have a strong stomach but Tattoo pushed me to my limits. Alone it leaves a horrible after taste. I don't know what it is it's just not that good but have found it to mix well with other flavors. So buyer beware!
I guess I don't have the palate a lot of rum drinkers have? I love Tattoo. To be fair, I use this mostly for cola and mixed drinks as opposed to sipping straight, but I actually enjoy sipping it, too, on the rocks. I personally don't think it's as bad as the ratings here suggest.
But as I said in another review... I'm still newish to rum, so I'm sure my ratings will change as I continue on my journey into the world of rum.
rums from Captain Morgan. But still not great.
Again rum for people who don't really drink rum.
Had this a long time ago and would not spend any money to try it again for rating purposes. I recall at the time not being sure what flavor they were going for here, I later read that it is supposed to be raspberry. Tasted to me sort of like flat rum and coke.
