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.
This was once my go-to rum when I didnt know any better and was only drinking Dark & Stormy's. Now that I'm all about sipping with my cigar, I cant even look at this bottle.
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.
Dobry rum se zazvorovym tonicem. Jako letni drink doporucuji.
After 15 years of aged rum tastings and after well over 600 aged rums later I ventured to try out the Captain Morgan Black 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.
The top 10 worst rums I have ever tried:
1. Barbancourt 4y / 8y / 15y
2. Bounty Dark Rum from Fiji
3. Stroh 40 / 80
4. Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
5. Villa Rica 23y
6. Mocambo 15y / 20y
7. Captain Morgan different variations
8. Don Papa 10y / 15y
9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
I am a very big fan of Capt. Morgan private stock I always thought it was a great rum and rivals the
much more expensive rums. As far as the Black spiced rum goes I feel that it is not nearly on the
same level. It is far to spicy which in my opinion takes away from any other flavors in the rum.
If they cut back on the spice a bit I think it would be far better.
This is far to sweet for me. I can drink 1 or 2 but no more than that.
Other than it’s vanilla bean aroma which is pleasant, this Rum is way overrated. I don’t mind it as a mixer but that where I stop. A good or great Rum should only be judged drinking it neat . Captain Morgan spiced neat is a disaster but it can pass as a mixer
Back on black..................................!!!
Burned cask taste it said on the blurb on the shelf where I bought it and it's true. I rather like that taste and strong spice flavor. Not good on its own but fits well with coke or Dr pepper. I prefer kraken but this one was alright!
A tad sweeter with more pronounced vanilla notes than the original captain but it has a harsh alcohol bite. Good for mixing but probably not "neat".
Yes, this is definitely a dark rum. Tastes a bit like coffee at first. Not really my cup of tea ;) I like the gold one better if compared to something close.
Not the biggest fan of this captain. Feel like it's gimmicky
