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.
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.
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.
Definitely Captain's answer to Kraken... But the cork caught my eye. They say you can't mess up a corked rum. This is highly superior to Kraken and is incredibly smooth for a black spiced rum. Highly recommend mixing with Cherry Dr. Pepper.
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.
I tried this rum, and I have to say it was the best Captian morgan what I drank. This rum flavor is very sweet like dark frutis.
Not a bad rum, but too spicy for me. Simple one for parties
Black spice is my second favorite rum it's great in every thing. Goes down dangerously smooth. This is the captain that makes me love captain.
This was the first black rum I had and I thought it was pretty good. I just sipped on it on the rocks.
I first tried this and enjoyed it in the UK. It was easily available there at the time and seemed quite popular, along with Kraken Black Spiced Rum. Since then I have also seen it in Dubai duty free. At first I really liked it (mixed with diet coke), but now I reckon it is mainly the product of good marketing and is too sweet and strongly caramel/vanilla flavoured. I read that it is made from "Caribbean Blackstrap rum", with clove spice, cassia bark, taste of cinnamon and clove. Easy to drink and I'm very happy to sink a few of these, but it is not what I look for in a rum nowadays.
Dobrý základ ak chcete vyskúšať nejaký koreneny rum. Nesklame ani nenadchne. Je to príjemná zmena oproti klasickému captain Morgan ktorý vám naleju takmer všade.
Easy to get the rhum, better choice than Basic morgan.longer aging nice Taste.
with other blank spiced rhum. Personnally prefer the sailor jerry. for drinks only.
A spicy rum, smooth. I enjoyed it. A good rum poolside!
Strong vanilla and caramel flavor with a strong kick at 47% ABV, perfect for mixing. Almost the same as the Kraken but this one finish in a nice and smooth flavor.
Another great pairing with a fine cigar. Nice taste not too harsh when sipping. Priced well below other so called "great sipping rums". Another must have for my cabinet.
My title is pretty much self explanatory. I couldn't tell a real difference between this and kraken except that captain morgan seems to have the edge with it being more full flavored (vanilla, spices, molasses, ect.). I did like it mixed.
Perfect for mixing with the coke. It really does the job! Full of flavour!
