Captain Morgan's Tattoo Rum
Country: Puerto Rico
Aged: Unknown; My guess is 1 year?
Alcohol: 35% (70 proof)
Price: $14-$18 (750 mL)
As soon as the bottle is opened and Tattoo is
poured, there is a noticable aroma of citrus, vanilla, and
The liquid itself has a dark caramel color with a golden
glow. There is a faint taste of general allspice with some
warmth but little actual burn in the finish.
This is a rum that was created with the intention of mixing, but
truth be told it's not necessary. Captain Morgan Tattoo is pretty good
straight up or just on
If you find rum to be a little harsh to your pallette, try a splash of coke, Dr. Pepper, or orange juice with a
squeeze of lime (and/or lemon) makes a nice, easy-drinking
Or, replace this in drinks where you use the Captain's
original spiced rum for a different twist.
Realistically, I fully expect that this rum will not
cater to all tastes. There are surely rum traditionalists who
will consider this too much of a departure, ansd I am usually
one of them. However those who enjoy
infused rums will particularly appreciate the flavor and
smoothness of this one.
I enjoy it, and would never turn down an open bottle of Captain
Morgan Tattoo passed my way.
