Distilled/Owned by: Captain Morgan / Diageo

Region: U.S. Virgin Islands

40% ABV

Distillate: Molasses

Aged For: NAS

Cask Type: Ex-bourbon

Chill Filtered: Yes

Additives used: Yup, it’s Spiced Rum

Color: Auburn

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Cola, vanilla, chocolate, ultra-artificial candy sweetness, sugar, diabetes

Mouthfeel: Syrupy

Palate/Taste: Flat cola, vanilla, molasses, caramel, chocolate, more sugar, lack of insulin

Finish: Short, little warmth, more of the same sugary sweet vanilla and cola notes

Thoughts: Its like drinking a rum and coke already without the carbonation, overly sweet stuff designed for people who don’t really enjoy the taste of spirits.
