Captain Morgan - Spiced Rum
Advantages: Great taste, spiced, vanilla, perfect spirit for me!
Disadvantages: None that I can think of at all
I have recently written a few reviews on different types of rum! I have to admit that I think rum is my favourite spirit, I love white rum and dark rum. Recently I have gotten into spiced dark rum, they taste so nice with coke and also leave such a nice taste in the mouth. I have recently been drinking Morgan spiced as my main spirit. I first tried this on a night out in Brighton, it was the drink on offer in a weather spoons pub. I tried it due to the cheap price and I am so glad I did because I have found a drink that I will like for life! It turns out that Morgan spiced isn't a cheap drink and it is Far more expensive than I first though it would be. I had never heard of Morgan spiced before I tried it a few months ago, but recently I have seen so many adverts on tele and in the papers for this spirit! I will now go into more detail on this product and explain why I like it so much.
A bottle of Morgan spiced is usually priced at around £17. This price if for a 1 litre bottle, which is fairly expensive but because of the brilliance of this drink I would pay more. It's far better than cheaper options. The bottle is quite tall and shaped quirkily. The front has a picture of the "captain" on it. You are also informed that it contains spices of cassia and vanilla. It is made with Caribbean rum. On the side of the bottle engrained into the glass are the words "smooth and true" and on the other side engrained are the words "spirit of the Caribbean". The back of the bottle tells you more about the alcholol content of the drink. It is at 35% volume. In a full 1 litre bottle of Morgan spiced there are 35 uk units. You are also told that there are at least 40 servings per bottle which shows how far one bottle will go. You are also given the ingredients for a drink called captain and cola. You are told to have 25ml of captain Morgan spiced, 100ml of cola and a lime wedge. Overall I really like the design of the bottle and it looks very posh. It stands out very well on the shelf and is very obvious. I love the look of the bottle on my drinks cabinet. This bottle design gets 5 stars from me.
Taste, do I like it?:
I love the taste of Morgan spiced it is something very different to any rum I have tried before. I like the hint of vanilla as it gives it a fresh taste. When drinking this with cola it gives the cola such a fantastic taste, it completely transforms a boring drink. I have tried this with lemonade and it also tastes great with it. A small amount of Morgan's spiced with ice is also great on its own. It's the sort of spirit which is great to have in your cabinet as it is very versatile. I believe it is much nicer than just a typical dark rum, the spiced aspect of the rum gives it so much character which you wouldn't expect a rum to have. It is a great winter drink because it warms your throat and body after you drink some, yet it is great for a summer drink with some ice cold cola. I have never been so impressed with a spirit. It has a great after taste which doesn't taste of strong alcohol. The alcohol content is high in the drink, but it doesn't taste like a very strong drink. I have never had a headache the next day after drinking a few of these! I really recommend that you give this a try as you will be shocked at how nice it is.
Captains Morgan spiced dark rum gets a full 5 star rating from me, it is a great spirit that is something different. It is available now in most pubs and I prefer this to the likes of Bacardi oakheart. It's very different and the hints of vanilla really excite me! I would recommend this to a person of any age as it really is very good. I hope you enjoyed reading my review! I do believe it is worth a try. I must also add that the smell of the drink is also so nice and you can actually smell the spices in the Morgan spiced. I love the whole branding and in will be definately buying this again in the future. I have seen this on offer in many places so keep your eye out for any offers on this, not long ago if you purchased a bottle of this you got a free captain Morgan spiced glass tankard.
Thanks again for reading this!!
Summary: The perfect rum for me!!!!!
