Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ok-ish black spiced rum. Nice vanilla and rum flavour.
I have a very old version of this which is why when I mix with coke it seems like a sin but in truth it's never going be subtle on the rocks.....
Beautiful dark color..not as sweet as Kraken..has more spice flavor..very smooth.. hard to believe its almost 100 proof..great rum
Oh well. Probably because of addition to the name I was expecting something more. But after all it's just coffee with (not so visible) voltage. Sigh...
Kraken style ....
Not much better than the original. This time they added some molasses, slapped an octopus for good luck, and marketed away. Better spiced rums around.
I like a good spiced rum and I find I enjoy a good dark rum as well. Some of the mor popular offerings one will find on the shelf call themselves black or dark but to me they are too light. This however is dark and holds its own against its competitors. The Captain tends to get bashed in these forums, yet still seems to be the litmus test. I have taste tested this one against several others and it always seems to rise to the top for me. This is my personal go to rum. The bottle is fun too, I think it really is the ghost of Rumn Past.
The Captain's answer to The Kracken. A black spiced rum with a little character to show for itself, but nothing uber-special. I only give it a 6 because of its lack of originality. Having said that, if someone offered me a free drink of this stuff, I wouldn't be rude and push it away, LOL. Just not something I'd go out of my way to buy again, is all.
The aroma in the bottle is acceptable. Nothing outstanding.
Sampling some straight reveals a strong mix of indeterminate spices. However whatever the spices are the aftertaste is bitter and unpleasant. Definitely needs to be drowned in cola. But there are many other spiced rums that are readily available that are much better quality.
You would never say it's as strong alcohol wise as it says. Tastes of caramel and dark spice. Will buy again.

Just like his brother, regular captain Morgan, add Coke to it and you have a good drink for those who don't really appreciate rum.
This another good mixing rum for parties. It really burns when drinking it straight.
I mean, it's pretty bad rum to begin with, but it does have some flavor which isn't totally offensive. Better than the Bacardi versions...if that means anything.
Rum for a ginger beer and lime day
This rum is perfect to mix into a dark and stormy in a tall glass
I definitely prefer this over the Kraken. Excellent over a large chunk of ice.
This grog is good straight up, on some iceberg chunks and with cola.
Some good me lovelies!
This is a decent rum. It's got clove, vanilla, molasses, and a touch of cinnamon. It reminds me a lot of eggnog, so I think this might be a great rum to use in your eggnog (though I haven't tried it).
A lot of reviewers compare this with Kraken, as this is both dark and 47%abv. And I agree with most of those reviewers that side by side the Kraken is better.
But this is definitely good. :-)
Love this one, a milder flavor than the Tattoo, really yum in a tall glass with loads of ice and coke.
Also good in Run Balls.
This rum is spicy, yet sweet. Smooth, yet harsh. This rum will put some hair on your chest. I stumbled upon this rum accidentally in search for a good mixer for some company. This has become my new advocate after a long work day. Try this rum, you will not be disappointed.
Good rum for around the campfire, but would like a little more wow in the way of the spices. I like the taste just needs more of it.
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.
