Proof66 Notes

;Captain Morgan Tattoo rum blends the original spiced rum with "hot spices" to offer a "sweet to heat finish." It presents a deep, stick black compared to the amber of the original spiced rum.

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.

While I am rating this the same as Private Stock, they are two totally different drinks. In fact I am almost ashamed to say I sort of enjoy this rum....no.....I AM ashamed. It's a gimmick drink, nothing more, nothing less. But I'll be darned if I don't enjoy a glass with this on the rocks once in a while. Licorice, cold medicine, syrupy sugar, and hints of caramel. For the price it's worth a shot, if you can still find it. Not for the rum fan at all though. At a party, they'll love you.

This is purely a novelty rum meant to spread the CM name around a bit. This is an artificially dark, artificially "spiced" rum that is as heavy on the taste kitsch as it is on the marketing. You can sip it if you want, but its sweet as hell, the flavor is, again, artificially strong, and may be the only thing on earth that can make a rum and Coke sweeter than it already is.

You either love or hate this rum; there is no middle ground. I suppose the taste could be described as a rum version of Jagermeister; although, Tattoo tastes better, and goes down more easily. Drink straight, or mix with coke.

This stuff is complete garbage... don't even buy it on sale. I think it may be useful as anti-freeze or rodent poisoning. Perhaps a nice gift for the in-laws.

If you're stoned and like stale black licorice - this is the rum for you.
