Review: Captain Morgan Cannon Blast

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 15, 2015

Cannon Blast Bottle Image

Captain Morgan Cannon Blast has just begun to appear on store shelves throughout North America. The new spirit from Captain Morgan (apparently produced from Captain Morgan Rum as well as natural flavours and spices) promises to deliver a pleasing citrus sweet front end while providing a finish with a warming (as in spicy), but not overwhelming, sensation. The new spiced rum is apparently (based upon the media information provided) designed to be ideal for the shot glass.

Coinciding with the release of this new citrus and spice flavoured rum, the Captain Morgan media team began to send samples and product information to media outlets (like The Rum Howler Blog) encouraging all of us to use the #(Hashtag)Boom when we tweet and write about their new spirit.

Review: Captain Morgan Cannon Blast

“… The aroma carries an obvious rum-like caramel aroma which is tainted by the sweet and sour scent of a lemon drop candy. The lemon drop candy scent grows stronger as you let the rum breathe, and as well I begin to notice a light spiciness, which reminds me of ginger and cardamom …”

Please enjoy this review which includes a recipe, Blasted Brew, which mixes the Cannon Blast with Lager Beer.

Chimo!  (#Boom)

    Hi Chip. I bought a bottle of this last week in New York State. It’s really nasty. Lime with peppers and in digging into the Captain Morgan website they list Lime, Chipotle, and Jalapeno as the main ingredients. I bought it for the novelty bottle. My friends and I tried it and decided to keep the bottle and dump the rum. I reused the bottle and mixed about 12 different rums including spiced rums to make my own “Blast Bottle”.

    • Lime, Chipotle, and Jalapeno eh. I never was given the recipe list but those ingredients do not surprise me. Lucus did say that his Blasted Brew tasted like Bud Lime and maybe I should have investigated that more. However, my tasting notes do reflect the tartness and the heat of that combination (and I really did not want to spend a lot of time trying to tease out the nuances of flavour when it really wasn’t enjoyable at all). The main point is that the overall flavour just doesn’t work. If Lucas and I hadn’t have found some redemption in the Blasted Brew cocktail my score would have been even lower.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
