Captain Morgan // 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.
Spiced RumRum that is flavored with a variety of spices, natural or artificial. They can be aged, though there is no requirement to do so.
"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."
