Captain Morgan is perhaps one of the most well-known brands of quality rum, named after a 17th Century Welsh privateer, Sir Henry Morgan. Now owned by spirits giant Diageo, Captain Morgan is perhaps the only rum that has such an iconic brand mascot. The Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum is their flagship spirit, smooth and rich, made from a blend of Caribbean rums and spices. It has a nose of molasses, pepper and spices, and a palate of warming stone fruits, caramel and fruit peels with a hint of aniseed. The finish is long and satisfying, with notes of honey.
