Default Captain Morgan Rums

Review: Captain Morgan's original Spiced Rum

It is International “Talk Like a Pirate”Day and so I though I would review a couple of rums which embrace the pirate mythology. I am going to start with Captain Morgan’s Original Spiced Rum.

Admiral Sir Henry Morgan (aka Captain Morgan) was a Welsh ‘privateer’ who attacked and plundered the Caribbean on behalf of, and with the written consent of (in the form of an English Letter of Marque), the Governor of Jamaica, Sir Thomas Modyford. Privateers at that time in history were essentially ‘legal pirates’ who were allowed to attack and loot enemies of the state reaping the rewards from their plunder in lieu of pay. Researching Sir Henry Morgan, I learned he was a skilled naval captain, a ruthless buccaneer, and one of the most successful ‘privateers’ in the history of piracy earning a Knighthood for himself in 1674.

Captain Morgan’s Original Spiced Rum is of course the name of Diageo’s top-selling spiced rum. I am on a bit of a mission to find out if the rum lives up to the man for which it was named. On the surface at least, we have some nice comparisons. Captain Morgan the Privateer was one of the most successful buccaneers in the history of piracy, practically defining the means and methods of a successful pirate campaign. Captain Morgan the Original Spiced Rum is perhaps the most successful Spiced Rum in the entire category and has pretty much set the standard for sales and marketing for all other spiced rums to follow. But what about the rum itself? Is it really as good as the marketing? I put Captain Morgan Spiced Rum through the paces of my review system to find out.

I add rums to the database only after I have some verified information about the product. Diageo doesn't talk much about the rums beyond the marketing.

You are so right about that. They gave me three bottles of rum to review on my site, but seem to have no interest in providing me any information except to confirm the names of the rums.

Default Review: Captain Morgan Private Stock

Captain Morgan Private Stock, is the company’s most premium spiced rum. According to the Captain Morgan Website it is made from the finest of Captain Morgan’s reserves and married with a richer blend of mellow island spices than the regular Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. It is bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
