Proof66 Notes

Captain Morgan Spiced rum is their flagship concoction and market leader blended sweet and spices in a rum drink for color and complexity. It is widely known in every bar across the world, particularly in the North American Market. The "spiked with lime" Lime Bite rum takes their classic spiced blend and gives it a kick with lime ingredients. It is also filtered to be clear. They suggest mixing with beer or lemon-lime soda. Despite the lime flavor, we have opted to list this as a "spiced rum" more in keeping with the spirit of Captain Morgan products. 

There's a very gentle, non-snobby review at the Intoxicologist, who remarks that Lime Bite has great potential as a mixer.

Captain Morgan is the spiced rum you can find everywhere. It's at every college party and goes with every cola at that party. The brand was founded in 1945 and is named for Captain Henry Morgan who was both famous pirate and eventually governor of Jamaica in colonial times. The brand is owned by Diageo; it was originally distilled by Seralles in Puerto Rico but was moved to St Croix after a somewhat acrimonious bidding war between the two nations (see the full write-up in Caribbean Business). The new Captain Morgan Distillery was opened in 2011.

The base rum is OK, but the lime tastes very artficial. OK as a mixer if there are a few different ingredients.

I actually liked this to the regular Morgan, which I find a subpar spiced experience. The lime is good and makes this rather versitile as long as you like lime flavor, good mixer with coke and I could see a mojito twist with it

I was expecting more of a citrus lime taste, instead it offers a very fake, sugary keylime flavor. It was not for me.
