Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I find it smoother than a black rum from Kraken. Haven't tried it mixed. Not bad straight.
I enjoy Captain Morgan Black for mixing. It is a bit harsh drinking neat, I figure the 94 proof does this. I prefer Dr. Pepper as a mixer over Coke for this one. Also, good with Red Bull that is similar to a Jager bomb, but I like this version better. I see a lot choose Kraken over the Black, but I like the finish of vanilla notes better on the Black as a mixer. A bit more going on than the Kraken and I feel smoother also.
Nice warm and spicy feel. Can be drinked any way you want. Neat, on rocks or in drink. I like its caramel taste with no overwhelming licore like others black rums. Thick and melow in mouth.
The charred barrels do this common one some good. While very similar to kraken, this is a bit thicker and with less menthol and more cassia flavor. The only CM I'll drink.
If you could just sit and smell one rum all day this would be it, lots of vanilla and spices. As a sipping rum it will serve you, but better if mixed with something.
Not so sweet like Gold Spiced with good aroma, but in taste I feel something like Jagermeister 😒
Not much to say, perfect for The Coke!
But a stronger and more powerful taste than Spiced Gold.
As the name implies, this is a very dark rum. As a relatively new rum drinker, this tool me by surprise. Color aside, in a mixer this is a rich tasting, smooth drink. I prefer it over CM original spiced. Glad I bought the 1.75L.
McDonald's would do the same. As others have said very similar to Kraken. Just a mass production take on things. Lots of vanilla and certainly a lot of sugar. Will do as a mixer and that's about it. But Hey it's alcohol so drink up.
Eigentlich nur gekauft weil das Label ansprechend war. Doch super Überraschung. Zimtig und Karamell. Selbst Lakritze und Beeren vermag ich zu schmecken. Sollte man mal machen. (V1.0.)
It has a nice strong aroma. It is allowis nice to ingeoi a glass of this rum after work. It is also very good in cocktails
Well obviously a try to cash in on the popularity of Kraken. Its a good mixer with a nice vanilla note.
I would say this is a nice response to krackens success. Just as nice but with different undertones. Still tastes a bit cheap and strong but great for mixing. Nice with coke not great for sipping.
Its a good option for the Cubas Libres, and normally in the liquor stores in Mexico you can find a promotion when you want to buy it!
The first one can be a little harsh neat, but the second is easier. Vanilla taste great with Coke or Diet Coke. My go to mixer for company.
If you are looking for a spiced mixer, this one will do you well. Mix with sprite for the taste of a cream soda.
was an ok rum but I enjoyed kraken more.. had it mixed with coke
Quite good rum, but nothing special. Bit better than Morgan Spiced Gold. Little bit sweet and more vanilla and spices. I noticed some tones of cherry.
I honestly thought this would be an average black rum but boy was i schooled. Almost as good as Gossling black seal but not quite there still a solid black rum not to be messed with
I like this rum. A nice spiced dark rum. Likes to kick your ass. I drink it often
I was given a bottle of this by my in laws when they returned from a cruise. As a fan of kraken and other dark spiced rums I was impressed, it was easy drinking not as harsh as i was expecting and went down a treat. Bit hard to find in the uk though not many people stock it.
It's very blunt, even if it's ice cold it doesn't taste spiced at all. I mean it's drinkable but just not my favorite. Don't think I'm going to buy this one again.
This is an excellent rum for eggnogs on Christmas morning. its extremely sweet so this is ideal for the eggnog. not a good rum for sipping but rather a good cocktail mix rum.
