Captain Morgan, named for a real Caribbean privateer, is a brand that has existed since the 1940s when it was originally owned by Seagram's in Jamaica and now Diageo, in Puerto Rico. The 100 proof rum is made from a blend of molasses-based aged rums mixed with spices. Bottled at a higher proof, it should be noted the blend was specifically created for use in cocktails and shots.

Tasting Notes

"Considering the much higher proof, this version tastes cleaner and more smooth than the original! It's still a tad too sweet - with weighty notes of vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, banana and tropical-fruit-flavored candy. Sweet cinnamon, nutmeg and clove add to the mix. There's a surprisingly pleasant roasted toffee flavor tying it together and finishes cleaner than expected."
