Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Captain Morgan Spiced Rum is made by combining yeasts, molasses, water and mash, which are then distilled in a continuous still. The rum is aged for up to 1 year followed by the addition of spices and flavors indigenous to the Caribbean Islands.
Captain Morgan Spiced is owned by Diageo and produced in Puerto Rico by the famous Destilieria Serralles, Inc. The company Captain Morgan is named after the 17th-century Welsh privateer of the Caribbean, Sir Henry Morgan was an admiral in the Royal British Navy who earned a knighthood in 1674.
This has a pleasant vanilla, honey, and marshmallow smell and taste to it, albeit it seems to lack a solid core rum flavor (maybe I've gotten too used to aged rums). Quite easy drinking and smooth at only 35%, but again, it seems to lack a core rum flavor and is somewhat artificial tasting.
I was in Anticipation to open this bottle as it was my first Captain Morgan, having left it on the shelf as an economical choice, I thought "what could it hurt?". I was not entirely disappointed. Unbottling reveals a swarm to the senses, vanilla dominates all round and your first glimpses of the spices are revealed. (I will not cause boredom on details of aromas I caught but it was pleasant all round). Aroma carries nicely into flavouring with no oddities or surprises from nose to mouth, this is a strength of the rum I believe.
I tired very quickly of taste neat, so experimented with mixers. This is where this shines through and creates a drop with utility. At approx $40NZD, this would be an easy road introduction for first time spiced rum tasters. Personally, I avoid spiced rums finding their overused flavoring too in the face. I didn't mind the good Captain, although, I would not purchase again the experience too short lived and tiresome.
Well it beat's tea or ice water if those are your only options. One of the staple brands served on my SPI and anything on the island you can't go wrong with.
This is what you drink when you know you are too drunk to appreciate a sipping rum and it's time to move onto a long drink. A store cupboard emergency standby.
This like many people would say, is my first introduction to rum, really decent, sweet, likeable enough, although I've experienced better even though I wouldn't pass on it either.
Nice color, powerful on the nose, nice mixing rum. Pour in some apple juice or cola add some ice and enjoy. Not the best spiced rum but far from the worst. The go to bargain rum in a pinch!
Prefer Capt. Morgan over Bacardi anytime. Still like Raken for a spiced rum for mixing.
If you love rum drinks and have no money then buy a bottle.
With coke this is my day to day drink - not one for savouring and would only ever have as a mixer but still love it's simplicity
this was the first spiced rum I ever tasted, ok as a mixer
This is the rum that introduced me to the wide variety that there is available. This rum is a great one to keep in the cabinet to share with visitors or people who may not know better. I would not drink this straight and enjoy it with coke. Generally though if I see another option available in the bar or cabinet I would usually sooner choose the other.
Yeah, stay away from this one... unless your other option is Bacardi. There are much be et ter spiced rums out there.
but hey, its spiced morgan! only if youre looking for cheap drinks, otherwise youre looking for more, much more.
Keď sa pije s colou a veľké množstvo tak super... Ale na vychutnávanie určite nie je.
A bit too much vanilla and caramel syrup for my liking. Not a zipper for sure but decent in Cola
This was my first rum for drinking straight and in mixed drinks. Develop a taste for this rum first and then start exploring other types.
I have had this before but just can't do it anymore. Tried to give it a fair chance.
Mám opravdu rád jeho vůni, chuť je spíše průměrná, ale s colou ho preferuji.
Voor zo een prijs kan je niet veel verwachten maar verrassend lekker met Colaatje. Vanille komt goed boven dan.
If you are hosting a party/get together, and you have no clue what to get, then get this, it's served everywhere and it's not bad, it's quite vanilla-like when mixed with Coca-Cola or Pepsi.
Vanilla and caramel taste but also weird industrial chemical sugary taste that makes it good when lime and coke. I would look for Havana 7yo first though.
What can I say, I love drinking Captain Morgan with Coke.
Definitely not for sipping neat or on the rocks. Mixing very well with coke. Too much alcohol smell and taste. Not enough flavor...
Recently tasted this straight, at room temp and the word "fuel" came to mind. While there are better choices for mixers, it is good with root beer... or better yet, mix with root beer schanpps and pour over vanilla ice cream. Update: this is now my second choice with root beer. The dark version is better.
At most local bars and restaurants, there will be a bottle of Bacardi Superior and Captain Morgan. It's pretty much the "standard" in the rum section. The entry level spiced rum for the category.
It doesn't taste bad, but it doesn't taste good either. If it wasn't on the shelf of every local bar, I would forget it existed. When I get really desperate, I order this with some cranberry and pineapple juice. You know, a drink to hold as I stand dreaming about finer spirits.
