Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum

20121130-201041.jpgLCBO#: 283929
Price: $30.95
Made in: Rochester, NY
By: Schenley / Diageo

Beautifully packaged in a clear bottle with an old-school label. Really liked the plastic over the cap (wish we could of kept a bit of it – see photo). Also, came with a nice keychain. Pours a dark brown colour with a lot of alcohol in the nose. Notes of cola and vanilla. The alcohol eventually softens, but there is still some burning in the mouthfeel. Sweet aromas like maple syrup and butterscotch come out with time. Roasted grain taste with molasses, brown sugars, cloves and hints of anise and vanilla (from the oak). This double charred blackened oak rum is quite pleasant once left breathing, but if you are looking for something a bit smoother… release “The Kraken” (its competition – also reviewed on here).
