Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Nice daily sipper. Doesn't even taste like something alcoholic. Full vanilla liquorice flavour.
Drinking by itself the taste is kind of harsh. But I found the perfect mix recipe. Two fingers BSR, four fingers sprite, mix, stir, drink and then about 10-15 minutes later you'll feel pretty special. Two glasses of this and you will feel like joining Timothy Leary and Andy Warhol in a discussion of altered states.I highly recommend this recipe and only with Black spiced rum. I've tried others and the recipe doesn't quite feel right/the same. I wish the bottle was more like Pyrat, like the style of bottle ships captains used back in the day, but it serves its purpose.
I accidently came accross this rum whilst on holiday in spain. Not a popular brand in the UK so I thought I would try it for the novelty.
It became my favourite rum overnight. If I had know about this rum before I would have bought several bottles from duty free. It mixes very well with vanilla coke and ice.
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.
If you want a black spiced rum, just go with Kraken. This isn't bad, but just leaves a weird taste in my mouth.
Not the greatest but delicious mixing rum. I've had multiple rum and cokes using this rum
Thats my best mixer with cola and limes so far. Cheers
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.
This has a very similar taste to Kraken rum, just cheaper price. Doesn't taste as great in cola as is does by itself.
This is my favourite medium tier black rum. It has a very strong flavour, yet subtle hints of vanilla and fruits can be discerned in the rich aftertaste.
Well balanced and definitely better than the Captain Morgan Dark rum. For me this is a sipping rum, mixing it with anything would only dillute the flavour.
Another rum I enjoy with Coke. A nice mix of spices. Not one of my go to rums, but I am glad I tried it.
Not much to say. It tastes like a stronger, more potent Captain Morgan. That's a good thing as it's smooth enough and tasty enough to be satisfying. I rated it a 7 to be fair to it's actual quality when compared to much higher quality aged rums. However, at only $20 per bottle and for being so smooth at 94.6 proof, it might also be considered an 8. I like it.
This is my thug choice. Can down a bottle or two in a night - no qualms.
A good and sweet spiced Rum.
Simple and straight, if you like sweet Rum this one is worth a taste.
I´m not a big fan of spiced rum. I tasted the CM Black straight, but could imagine that it´s an alright rum with coke.
IT's quite nice for a day on the slopes or to have a glass of it with a desert ;)
I tested Captain Morgan Black Spiced against Kraken with some friends and 4 out of 4 would choose Kraken! The difference is not big in Coke but straight Kraken is the best.....
Nosing is rather subdued for its strength under the additives but does have a slight nostril burn to it. The nosing is that of chocolate, molasses, vanilla. Burn in the back of the throat and tongue. Astringency Then turns into a sugar bomb in its finish with vanilla and chocolate notes. Nothing to sip on lacking oak or smoke flavors form any "double charring". Unable to have the desire to sip more I mixed with cola which I rarely do. The cola helps to mostly reduce the burn and astringency which it often does and carried the vanilla and chocolate notes.
I saw this hit the shelves shortly after I saw the Kraken hit stores. Since I was already in love with Kraken I figured I'd like this one. It was ok at best. Not terrible but not great.
Nothing special but oke to drink with cola. For straight up this isn't my rum.
Captain Morgan is just a strong taste of molasses and strong bitter finish.
Táto kombinácia mi skutočne nesedela. Neviem ale prerážanie korenia oproti chuti rumu bola absolútne zlá
Clearly not the best of the best but a solid choice for mixed drinks, Has a strong vanilla flavour more so than a true spiced rum.
