About this deal

In fact, it’s a really nice sipper for the newbie who wants to get away from mixers without losing the body and taste. The bottle itself is fat, short, and wide, with a relatively slim cross section from front to back and rounded edges. Surprisingly mellow sipper from a purveyor not noted for such drinks; not overly complex, but warm, buxom, heavy and with a rich nose and body. For every occasion and celebrations to enjoy the night by yourself or with your friends and family, you’ve come to the right place as we only sell quality, excellence, and more!

Update: The rum has now been reclassified (by me) as a spiced rum due to the overwhelming vanilla profile…and the fact that it’s now acknowledged as being added-to. Having bored you to tears with all of this tedious history and trivia, the question remains, is it any good? The company eventually became most well-known for two brands: Seagram’s 5 Crown and Seagram’s 7 Crown, which were both massive commercial successes.The only thing I’d say is that I’ve never felt the vanilla overwhelming when compared to the other flavors like cinnamon and caramel, more heavily complimentary. His early life (including how he made his way to the Caribbean) is largely unknown, but we do know that by the 1660’s Morgan was captain of a privateer ship charged with capturing Spanish ships in the Caribbean. Tax incentives favouring Puerto Rico caused them to transfer manufacturing to a factory outside San Juan (close to where the Bacardi family was setting up a factory at the same time); in 2001 they sold the rights and brand to Diageo, a British concern which by 2010 was the largest spirits company in the world. Without trying to be insulting, the fact is that Puerto Rico, which enjoys a favourable import tax regime with the US, makes the Budweiser and Coors of rums, with all the negative connotations this implies. Not that I have a real issue with that, but there’s so much other good stuff out there that I don’t need to go to Puerto Rico for my rums.

This being said I completely agree with most of what was said and found this a great and honest review. Captain Morgan starts this same way, and once the initial slurry is ready for distillation it is fed into a continuous distillation still (or column still) to produce the raw rum.I always interesting to hear a different perspective on what was my gateway rum into the world of sipping rums and to this day remains my stand by spirit of choice. We've wide variety of payment methods from Europe's leading payment services, banks, credit cards and credit companies. I do find it interesting to hear it from your side, it does point out somethings I ignore because of my love for vanilla. While the locals of Caribbean islands such as Jamaica squeezed the sweet sugar cane juices to produce, ferment, disture, and aging to a dark rum, they kept their fluid in Cuba and Puerto Rico during a very short aging period after distillation.

It has been a few years since I’ve tried Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum… and while I don’t necessarily have fond memories, I can’t say I remember hating it either. But you’re also correct that the vanilla outstays its welcome: I’d rather have a young, piquant, dead-heavy molasses based “straight” rum like Young’s Old Sam or Coruba to drown my mixin’s in, than to attempt it on this one. A rum noted for its golden color and soft texture, the favorite of many due to its peculiar flavor that you can enjoy alone, with ice or with a twist of lime. There are a few nuances of baking spice and oak and of course some rummy caramel left over as well; but it is the vanilla that I notice above everything else.He further led raids on Maracaibo, Gibraltar, and Panama before the end of privateering in the Caribbean in 1672. From the top of his list, his favourites like Kraken, captain Morgan Black and gold spiced, Old J, sailor Jerry, Pampero anniversario, vodoo spiced rum. He married his cousin in 1666, the daughter of the deputy governor of Jamaica, and was soon elevated to the rank of admiral and tasked with leading a group of privateers.

I know this sounds crazy but mix this with black cherry cream soda, the black cherry and vanilla taste explode in your mouth, might be too sweet for some. Morgan would continue to be a figure in Caribbean politics, acting as governor of Jamaica before his death in 1688. I always think that my review is good if someone who disagrees with my scoring finds my description honest and fair.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Infused with a selection of secret spices, resulting in a multi-sensorial balanced experience with notes of vanilla, honey, wood, fruits and caramel. Additionally make sure your User-Agent is not empty and is something unique and descriptive and try again.
