Captain Morgan's Black Castle 100 Proof Spiced Rum --- and Coke.

***** 5 Stars

I find it nicely fills the gap between Bacardi 151 and Coke -- which is somewhat too rough on the pallet and Captain Morgan's and Coke -- which is a bit too sweet and filling for the serious adult drinker.

Mixed 1/2 & 1/2 with Coke over ice this has a well balanced taste and is strong enough to remove the edge from your day w/o maxing out your blood sugar.

Please don't drink and drive.

I tend to prefer rums unflavored..and tend to like the flavor of darker rums compared to the lighter fare.

Made in Guyana. Comparing it to Bacardi is like comparing cognac to grappa. In 151 it's smoother than 80 proof bat guano. We used to go to the pick your own strawberry farm and have frozen daquiry parties with 151 Lemon Hart. Called the "Jim Jones cocktails because of origin and punch.

would involve unflavored rum, your choice of brand, room temperature, and a glass.

I buy the cheapest store-brand rum I can find, which is currently "Prestige" (80 proof) at $9.98 for a 1.75 liter jug.

I like it better than the much more expensive Bacardi, which has that distinctive sweet flavor.

Am I a connoisseur of fine liquors? HELL NO!

Kind of like Miller Lite in terms of flavor. Get yourself some Mount Gay Eclipse or Appleton's. Appleton's is fairly cheap in my local ABC store but actually a nicely flavored Jamaican rum. Also Myer's Planter's Punch. One thing about Lemon Hart 151 - you can add a good bit to a coke and it tastes pretty much the same. Haven't seen it around here for a while, though. Bacardi 151 is closer to Ever Clear by comparison.
