Proof66 Notes

Captain Morgan White rum was first released in 2014 and is the company's first effort at a classic silver rum and is a departure from their famous spiced-flavored version. It's designed for a smooth-tasting profile and presumably designed for mixing in popular rum cocktails.

A real disappointment.The nose was decent with vanilla, honey, citrus with hint of oak. The entry is smooth with vanilla and sugar syrup palate ending with vanilla & honey with bittersweet oak vanilla liqueur finish The sweetness is overwhelming and undesirable straight and in mixed drinks.Low shelf Ron Rico White is better than this rum , That is not saying much for a premium white rum.

I thought I would give it a try, but I was disappointed and I thought it was hard to use even with a cola.

My go-to rum. Some rums may have a more interesting taste straight but this is the ultimate mixing rum.

Proof66 hit the mark, this is the definition of meh rum. It is lacking any distinguishing characteristics and overall I would just stick to bacardi. I wouldnt do it neat, but I could see its place as a mixer.

We compared Captain Morgan White straight up to the Bacardi light. We found the Captain lacking simply because of the added sweetness. That extra masks the molasses and oak character of true silver rums. Even for those who prefer the sweetness in neat settings or a straight shot would find the sweet a little overpowering in cocktails. It's fine... but it's just fine. And that barely.

Tango (2016-10-05):
Exactly right. The sweetness is overwhelming.

Proof66 Staff (2016-10-05):
And then some! We had some belated success in putting this in rum version of a Moscow Mule since the ginger cuts the sweetness. But only if you're trying to figure out a way to get rid of a bottle.
