Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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. :-)
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.
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.
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 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.
...or forget it.
Definitiv kein Rum, welchen man auch nur ansatzweise pur geniessen könnte.
I didn’t like this one as much as I thought I would. This one is better mixed as a regular drink. Maybe it was the colour that threw me.
Riktigt god drinkrom. Perfekt med cola eller i en dark and stormy.
Was interested in trying this when I first saw it released, but managed to find a good deal on a 1l bottle so thought I would grab it.
This is clearly a rum that has been made to compete with Kraken, lets not beat it round the bush. We get a decent dash of vanilla and various other spices. Though the finish doesn't last long, and doesn't quite seem as full bodied as it should especially considering its a little stronger.
Straight or mixed, it is just underwhelming, and while not at all bad, considering its pricing, its just not something that can be recommended over Kraken, and doesn't even compete with the King of Rums right now (Rumbullion). There will likely be people that find this rum very easy to consume, and may even prefer it over Kraken, I totally get that, and so in that instance, its worth trying, I just dont think its worth the price.
Smells like a pirate cany shop! This is my all time favorite mixing rum. Tastes great in a cuba libre. Sweet, fruity, vanilla, caramel, banana and some smokey oak. Could even works as a sipping rum but its best in a drink.
Bought this ON SALE last August ...it is now ..March.....finally opened it .....MMMMMMMMMM...what a VANILLA hit on the front ....WOW !!!
If you like rum from Captain Morgan ....do yourself a favour and buy it ...
Sweeter spiced taste - like this kind of rums.
Not so smooth as the Kraken rum, but very similar.
Good as the pleasant end of the night before you say goodbye to your friends.
Rather tasty, although lacking in subtlety & distinct flavourings. I personally found it goes down well both neat and mixed. Cap'n Coke surprised me with how well the two combined.
However, it leaves a bit of an oily sensation in the mouth that eventually overpowered me.
Tenhle pan kapitán ok, pokud chcete nasládlou záležitost. Koření, vanilka, skořice. Jistá podobnost s Krakenem, ale za mě mezi těmito lahvemi bych sáhl asi po této. Řadím do kategorie babské pití, což neznamená nic špatného. Salut Mr. Captain Morgan
Zakúpené v tescu a následne zdegustovane v príjemnej spoločnosti. Na mňa príliš sladký.
Vanilka. Vanilka. Vanilka.
A s kofolou je z toho uzasny drink plné chuti a vuně sladkeho koreni.
Samotne to moc na piti neni.
Vytecne take a jablecnym mostem.
