Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I like this way better then normal captain but it is no match for others in my cabinet.
Definitely a rare hit for Captain. Incredibly high quality rum and easily sipped or mixed.
This was some of the finest spirits, I've ever had so smooth that it left you refreshed with no bite at all 100% this was a 10.
This is the best rum from captain Morgan. Great sweet smooth taste. Enjoyable on the rocks or with soda.
It's a good rum to drink with coke, taste a bit like cherries. Wonderful mixer
It's the most suave iteration of the Captain that you'll ever meet .
Sails smooth by itself or with a dash of soda as well .
More Morgan . Less Bite .
Captain Morgan limited sherry oak is the best line of captain I've had.
Wonderful aroma, mixes well, makes a great Cable Car
I remember liking this when had some a few years back
If you turn your nose up at this because you don't like spiced rum, you have my utmost thanks. Found this delightful rum for a mere $12 on closeout and gave it a try. That was 3 bottles ago. Far too good for college students and way too much smoothness and flavor for snobs to understand.
Pleasantly surprised, for as cheap as it is, and with the captain Morgan name, this was very good
I genuinely enjoyed this rum. The sherry really did something to this. It has a great fruity aroma and rounded out with a smooth and mellow vanilla like smell. This transitions into flavor. It does get a bit sweet and well, the novelty wears off. It's for sipping, and in small quantities. It was definitely surprising, but it can get old.
Based upon my experiences with various Captain Morgan products the bar was set rather low. Expectations were not very high.
I must admit...
...it wasn't awful.
It's wasn't great either.
It did manage to go above the bar I set.
At 35% ABV (70 proof) it is less potent than typical rums. It has a sweet aroma and a nice amber hue. The flavor is indeed sweet with obvious cherry flavor. I do detect a little oak undertones but question as to where it was indeed finished in oak casks or barrels. All it says on the bottle is "sherry oak finish" but doesn't specify as to how. Was in in casks or barrels or were sherry oak chips added to the rum? CM's website was no help in trying to determine that. Some internet research revealed others making this same question. This lack of transparency and semantics raises some questions.
This is a sweet rum. Even the finish is sweet. Too sweet for me but compared to other CM rums it's not so bad. I wouldn't recommend this as a sipping rum. It's definitely a mixing rum and would benefit being used in drinks calling for grenadine. However with all that said, there are many better spiced rums out there for the $20 USD price.
This may be a "limited edition" but really nor worth seeking out. At least it's not cloyingly sweet and it doesn't suck with a capital SUCK.
Every liquor store in SW Fla. has this on sale for as little as $10.00/ 750ml- so for value it is fantastic. It is very sweet with lots of cherry and vanilla- I mix with Coke and it is my nightly "beer thirty" drink!
Too cherry for me, after taste made me wince. I see it got really good reviews from mostly everyone, so it must just not agree with my taste buds. I tried it straight, with Coke, and with Sprite. Guess I'll try cooking with it.
I was able to try what my cousin had left and I loved it. Brought three flasks to the beach and had an amazing time. I think the atmosphere brought out the sweetness. Smooth is better good job captain Morgan.
This is a great cooking Morgan, really nice to be used on a T-Bone Steak sauce.
Also as a drink straight up it's good.
Got a bottle as it was the last in the store. Was surprised at the additional flavoring, the Sherry cask added a whole new level. One of the best Morgans I have had.
I like the Captain Morgan LE sherry cask. It is smooth and has some nice notes of caramel, vanilla, spice and a great sherry finish. I prefer this slightly over the 1671, but it is a close race.
Another Captain Morgan that I don't actually mind. Most of the time I like rum with a splash of coke. This also is good with Dr. Pepper and on the rocks if I wanted. Worth a try, especially if you can find it for $10 like I did.
... if you could actually taste the sherry.
Despite that, it is a good rum. I enjoy it, even for sipping... but on the rocks.
I ordered 2 bottles from New Jersey as it is no longer available in Pennsylvania. Drank it straight without ice and found it to be very mild with a hint of cherry aftertaste. Thought it was rather weak in strength (35%) with no burn when swallowed. I think this would get lost if mixed with coke.
After spending a week doing high end whisky tasting this rum just seemed to come at just the right time. Lovely aroma. It just feels the room as your glass decants...No it's no Four Roses Single Barrel, but what is? So what does this rum taste like? Awesome. You get the sweet caramel and vanilla notes you expected from the Captain but there is SO much more here. The vanilla is almost muted by the fruity flavors creeping in. No alcohol burn at all and not even the slightest bitter bite in the finish. Don't waste this rum by mixing it. Just put an icecube in the glass and enjoy it. It really is that good.
This is a limited edition SHERRY cask, but there is no sherry whatsoever. For that alone, I give a failing grade since it doesn't have what it set out to have.
Major molasses, with hints of regular Captain behind. I guess the "sherry cask" simply masked the horrible base that Captain Morgan is.
