First taste… WOW! That will wake you up. At 100 proof it can also put you down in a hurry. There is no hiding that strength. No Captain Morgan rum has ever been accused of being shy. There is some burn of course, but much less than many weaker rums i have tried. Captain Morgan 100 proof reminds me of drinking vanilla extract. There’s a little more going on of course. But Captain Morgan is a simple drink. Even with the burn I wouldn’t call this rum rough at all though. It doesn’t smack your face like Captain Morgan Black Spiced does. Oh you do know this alcohol, no doubt about it. More importantly with all that sweet vanilla you know you are drinking RUM. After getting Captain Morgan Black Cask nice and chilled it was actually a very pleasant sipper. I had it nice and neat in a little glass jar. No ice, no water. There was no bitter aftertaste in the finish whatsoever. The finish is short and dry but that’s not really a bad thing. This Captain Morgan doesn’t linger on the tongue except for a mild vanilla aftertaste. Mixed with diet cola it was pretty much Vanilla Coke with some punch…and kick… Really though, i preferred it straight up.
I can’t see any reason to bother with the 70 proof version other than just to compare the two. This is a good rum. Is it a delciate balance of fine aged rum and spices? NO! What is it then? Captain Morgan Spiced 100 Proof is smooth, tasty, and STRONG. It’s a simple and uncomplicated high proof rum. This makes it fun and easy to drink, which is probably why the brand is so popular. I find this rum to be a perfectly acceptable sipper. There are better sippers for sure, but don’t underestimate this one. On top of that Captain Morgan Black Cask Spiced 100 mixes wonderfully in cola and tea. The tea was an accident, but a happy accident indeed.
The Captain has earned his spot in the marketplace by being accessible and consistent. Introducing a smooth more potent big brother to the classic is a huge step in the right direction! Captain Morgan Black Cask 100 Proof Rum will always have a home in my liquor cabinet.
This is a powerful rum very strong strictly for Hunch Punch
Not sure the point of this offering from the Capt. but sampled none the less. It was fine, but I usually do not drink to get drunk, and I have to wonder if this is its purpose? Taste almost identical to Original Capt. and because of the extra $$, I would just stay with the original. I did not sample straight, only with coke.
No mixing, no ice, no coke. Just a case of the stuff. I don't even need glasses.
In Canadian bars you often find this rum offered. To me it has the bar taste. Nothing fancy. It is ok with Sprite but nothing else. For a big croud of guests, it is cheap enough.
Great to mix box batches at a party. Horrifying by itself.
When I was younger I'd drink this swill with Coke and loved it. Then I opened my eyes to all the possibilities there are with rum.
A boire en cocktail, avec du coke. Pas exceptionnel mais à partager avec des amis en début de soirée.
Le spiced de base...
Not a rum I like to drink neat, but mixing it with coke it is a nic drink
Good for when out with friends and no other options exist
For mixing no on the rocks
i can sip this neat and it is fine. nothing extra but i would not expect much either. lots of vanilla.
Es de los peores rones, no lo recomiendo ni para coctelería, no me gustan los rones con especias y miel
It's exactly as advertised
Same taste as regular spiced with a higher alcohol content. It's a party rum and same price as the 40% next to it so might as well grab it and go!
I really liked the hundred proof when I wanted to get super drunk, but not so much anymore
I like the color, rich amber. Reminds me of beer I used to make. Nose, not sure if it's the vanilla sweetness, or the spice. If I want to get drunk in a hurry, I think this would be my rum of choice. Doesn't burn much more than many 80s. Easy to drink strait up, might be good with rum and coke. Worth a try.
I only drink it with coke. Anything else it isn't very enjoyable. Cheap, one taste heavy spiced. Had to try it. Tasted like i expected
You know when you are late to a party and you need to catch up?
VERY strong caramel of this rum gives a good quality to be used to produce rums taste deserts or drinks that require rums. Would recommend to be used even with cola you can fell strong caramel even with cola.
Are you guys kidding me?! Ratings of 6, 7, and 8?! Get your taste buds checked or stop drinking at college keg parties. This rum is a mess, a hotter and harsher version of the original.
This is my go to higher proof rum. Lets the glasses flow with 100proof goodness. It slides back easier than its lower proof brother, but packs much more of a punch. Always fun to stand up after a few and really take note of the 100 proof as it smacks you like a scorned ex.
Smooth and sweet and very common. Nice vanilla that goes good with cola. I like it but will probably never buy it again.
This taste is quite nice for beginners. To me, to drink with cola, like every Captain Morgan.
Captain Morgan's basic spiced has a ok taste and is smooth to drink with coke as a mixer
