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.
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
Spiced rums over ice are my favorite tipple and this is no exception deep carmels smooth toffee flavor almost feels bland to begin with but when the ice breaks it down the flavor comes out. Salute the Captain !!!
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
A nice dark spiced rum, goes down smooth and a great price.
Barely ok and only for mixing Tikis. Spiced and far from natural rum
Really enjoyed this. Bit sweet, but overall very balanced and enjoyable.
It's a very solid mixer, and not too bad straight either. Like the title says, Captain Morgan's Black Spiced is also a grand alternative to Kraken. Although they share many similar characteristics, Captain has a far better balance than its squiddy counterpart.
Did not enjoy this at all...what i do enjoy us a spiced gold, but this one had such a harsh taste.... If you want a black rum, i think your better of buying The Kraken.
