We all know that Captain Morgan is a bit of a scallywag, but he is really showing his dark side now with the release of a new label. Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum is now on the shelves – the brand created it to appeal to the whiskey drinker who might be hesitant to down a glass of rum on the rocks. The Black Spiced rum also should appeal to the snobbier drinker who is more into artisanal spirits like Sailor Jerry or the other spiced rums that have become popular in cocktail circles these days.
The label is made with ingredients like clove spice and cassia bark, and it’s finished with double-charred blackened oak. Expect notes of cinnamon on the nose, with spice and oak on the tongue. Even though it’s fine for cocktails, Captain Morgan is encouraging folks to try their first girl on the rocks. Make like a pirate and drink some tonight.
