    Arrow Captain Morgan sherry oak finish!

    Found this at a local Store yesterday. Has a nice reddish color and a nice flavor. A real winner!

    Why not? Couldn't hurt, Morgan's a mixer anyway.

    I got a chance to try this and I thought it was pretty good as well. Certainly a step up from regular Captain. Maybe even better than the "Private Stock" Captain.

    Re: Captain Morgan sherry oak finish!

    Odd that they released it as a 70 proof product though. Almost like a high proof liqueur. Low proof doesn't add much as a mixer. Seems more like a rum for people who don't drink rum or other spirits neat or as the predominate component in a cocktail often. Maybe it is trying to compete with the honey flavored whiskey crowd as a cocktail in a bottle.

    Haven't tried it primarily for that reason so perhaps the taste makes it worthwhile. I can't say from personal experience.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I expect they are trying to appeal to the same consumers who buy 70 proof, flavored vodkas.
