Captain Morgan Tattoo

Captain Morgan Tattoo
Puerto Rican Spiced Rum
35% Alcohol (70 Proof)

Avast, me hearties!  Today is a special day: September 19.  For those of you who don't know... it's International Talk Like a Pirate Day!!!  That's right, TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!!! Walk the plank, ya' scallywags!  Arrr!  

Okay, enough of that. 

Anyway, I figure what better way to celebrate the occasion than by reviewing some liquor from the most famous drunken pirate rum guzzler around, Captain Morgan!  Like I said in my Kraken Black Spiced Rum review, the Captain has always been a good friend to me.  Sometimes he did cause me to party a little too hard, but hey, that's life.

Captain Morgan Tattoo is a variation on their standard spiced rum.  And by variation I mean, what the hell, Captain?!  This stuff is intended as a mixer, sure, but wow.  This is syrupy thick, overly sweet, and crazily spiced beyond all belief.  It's almost like someone tried to make an alcoholic version of Dr. Pepper when they were drunk.  I guess this may go decently with cola, but not that well.  On its own had neat or as a shot, it's borderline nasty.  No joke.  I love regular Captain, but not this stuff.  This was probably made by Disney's Jake and the Neverland Pirates, not good ol' Captain Morgan.

Drink This: No.  Don't.
Don't Drink This: if you want good spiced rum.  Go get some Kraken or standard Captain Morgan, instead, you landlubbers!

  5. Yuck! I thought I'd try it as I like spiced rum. I agree with the author. It's way over spiced! Tastes like cherry. Back to my favorite.. Kraken

  6. I wish I had read your review before I picked up a bottle of Tattoo. The only decent rum I've had is Sailor Jerry, which I should have picked up instead of Tattoo.

    But, I read a review of The Kraken elsewhere and bought a bottle and viola, you also have a review of that.

    I'm new to spirits in general but so far, I prefer rum over vodka and I've yet to venture into other spirits. Baby steps since I am mainly a beer a guy with over 2000+ reviews.
