Characteristics Captain Morgan Black Jamaica Rum
In 1654 a young Henry Morgan left his native Wales for the West Indies. He never looked back. A born leader, he quickly made Captain and became famous as a legal pirate or buccaneer, defending British interests and generally rocking the Caribbean. Centuries later he became the figurehead for a company that became as famous as the man himself… The Captain Morgan Rum Company.
To make the rum they take American white oak bourbon barrels, char them, and fill them with triple distilled rum. Then we leave them to rest and mature. The charred barrels play a huge part in shaping the rum's flavour, helping release the vanillin, tannins and caramelising sugars. Ageing in these barrels also mellows the spirit and helps create the rich golden colour that is characteristic of different Captain Morgan products.
Captain Morgan has serious depth of flavour. It is aged in oak and has a dark, full-bodied colour and a distinctive rich taste that make it unmistakable.
