Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It's sweet, but it has a warm feeling after you drink it has a cinnamon taste.
This Captain is my second most favorite of all of them, it's citrus flavors mixed with the Jalapeno and heat is amazing., Great as a shot or mixed with Lemonade. Love it so much and the bottle is so cool.
Not your typical rum. Cannon blast has a strong lime taste followed by the blast of cinnamon.
Best shot I've ever had, little bit of spice with the classic captin taste
this is the bet mixing rum i own, AMAZING. I truely enjoy it.
This is a great drink to take straight shots of no chaser needed I see a lot of people saying it's spicy but to me it tastes like a like hard candy literally amazing
I think Cannon Blast is great for shots and to get the party going. Not need to add or mix anything, as the fireball flavor with a dash of citrus makes Cannon Blast a very nice shot.
I love rum. Just saw this at a bar and the bartender was nice enough to give me a generous sample. Loved it! It's exactly what it was created for. Shots! Incidentally I got one mixed with Coke as a 'traveling' cocktail and it was great. Do not fear this if you drink rum.
I am a fan of citrus flavors, so this rum is a nice addition to our collection. I realize it doesn't suit everyone's taste, but we enjoy it on occasion. I do not agree with the comments that compared this to cough syrup, but again .. individual tastes and preferences.
Quite possibly my favorite rum for shots alongside Tattoo. First off, the cannonball-shaped bottle is extremely cool. The rum has a very pleasant smell, orangey and sweet. It tastes similar to the way it smells and it goes down very smoothly. My only wish is that it had a higher percentage of alcohol in it.
And not in a bad way. It's advertised as a shot (which it does very well at), but I found that it is excellent with ginger ale. It's not a red fruit style rum, more mild, and a lot more complex than I would have thought, given the bottle. Not exactly a go-to rum, but great for parties, as it is super versatile.
What can I say I. Am a sucker for a unique look. THIS quickly made me laugh and I had to have it. Yet this is not about looks but the taste. Captain Morgan has always been what I call the Safe Rum. It can be bought everywhere and its usually always an average to above average rum. How does the cannon blast taste though? Right off the blast. Lol you'll be hit with a citrus / peppery flavor. If neither one is your thing then you would do best to grab a different rum. I liked it yet know it's not something I will drink regularly. It's nice straight up. As I have yet to really mix it but feel it could make an interesting mojito if mixed.
This has a very interesting nose and flavor. It has the smell of lemon drops and coca-cola, and tastes very interesting. Although a little sweet/ artificial for my taste. Good for shots or as a mixer.
I'm not too much of a fan of Captain original, but this stuff is actually pretty good. It has a nice dark hue, but it's not a black rum. It has hints of lime, an orange taste(almost like grand marnier), a nice coca taste, caramel. It's great just on the rocks or straight. It's smooth @ 70 proof(very drinkable). It puts Tattoo to shame, which in my opinion is Captian's worst.
As a fan of The Captain, I had to try it ! I don't know if it's rum, I guess there is rum in it. The first thing that hits you is the bottle of course, quite a novelty and great party starter. Raise a shot and you get a lot of orange and spice to the nose, the flavour is who knows what, Orangina and Rum ? Swallow it down, then the pepper starts to warm you from within. Fire Two ! You know what they say 1 is not enough but 3 are too many. For $12 dollars it's a blast :-) and a little more fun than Jägermeister ;-)
But rather, rum-spiced spice. Top shelf and self proclaimmed experienced drinkers will talk you out of this bottle, and some even with exaggerated reviews. But this rum is something different; extremely spiced, sweet and with a burning, pepper-like aftertaste.
This is the dare-your-buddies kind of stuff, not a taster's choice. Fun to have.
Honestly I bought it for the bottle and wasnt expecting much but it really isnt that bad. Nothing complicated here its just captain with some inserted lemon and peppered spice. HOWEVER its actually pretty good. Popping the bottle off smells like Pinesol in a way (lemon like) which is cool because I love lemonade. Honestly sipping it straight isnt TOO BAD it could be harsher but its not exactly smooth either. Tastes like the captain morgan at first and then a whoosh of lemon and pepper. Honestly it makes a unique Rum and Coke that I enjoy. I might keep buying this especially at its 13$ price.
Let's be clear, this is designed and created to be taken as a shot. If you try to sip on this be prepared to be upset. However, it's not as bad as the rum snobs claim it to be! It's fairly strong all the way through but has a sweeter follow-through. It's basically a ready-to-drink shot but also a good mixer in a long island iced tea or Mai Thai if your looking to spice it up. Fairly cheap and most places carry an airliner of it to try. 7/10.
This stuff is a bit more unique from other rums I have tried. Smells of orange citrus, vanilla, with a slight cinnamon.
Strong orange or citrus taste, followed by a bite of habenaro spice that's not hot but lasts.
It's a nice tasting rum even though I'm not a fan of the Capt.
Do shots with it, that's what it's for.
I like very smooth, slightly sweet sipping rums. This one is not really a smooth sipping rum. But it truly is tasty and interesting with a nice little bite. It's price to flavor ratio gives it a 7 in my book.
Perfect for shots, which is exactly what it's designed for. I'd purchase it again.
So i see a lot of haters here but really what do you expect for 19 bucks! Take the bite off the cheap rum with an ice cube let it melt and enjoy rhe citris burn. Really one of my fo too cheap rums. I lke it. Interesting flavour that i suppose everyone expects to taste like a 200 dollar bottle of rum. Great iced by the pool.
Well this is a "Fun" rum, you can drink it straight but could be used in "Chicky" drinks. Sweet and lots of citrus to enjoy. Not your typical rum..
Doesn't seem to mix well with anything, however, I don't believe that was their intention. This is a shooter and is fun and unique, but just does not feel like a rum. It feels like a party drink already made, and where is the fun in that?
I like Captain Morgan products and had to try the Cannon Blast. It is a decent shot with some bite. I taste the peppery bite and a spice - nutmeg or clove with a hint of orange. I have only used for shots and have not experimented with mixing, although the ginger ale that one reviewer mentioned would be worth a try. I will keep some of this around to share with friends. Also, a cool bottle.
