Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold Reviews


Love it, done a bottle in 2 hours

2nd September 2020

At least they use natural vanilla!

Its funny that everyone is hating it while top rums perhaps have better quality but then all destroy it by adding chemical vanilla hahah! This one at least is NATURAL in its vanilla.

30th August 2020

Total's not even Rum

Not RUM...just tastes like a Vanilla mixer, weak as piss and tbh it tastes non-alcho

22nd July 2020


Had this many years ago, but this definitely doesn't taste like it used to. Very chemically. Noticably weak at 35%, wouldn't be surprised if it was actually weaker!

17th June 2020

Cheap and cheerful Captain!

You can't hate on the captain even if he isn't special or unique that's mutiny!

10th June 2020

I Love Mongans Spiced Gold

If I'm not drinking beer or cider, it's got to be Morgan's and coke. Or saying that, morgans would be inbetween the beers lol

26th May 2020

Punch bowl bbqs for ladies

Errr not great stick 2 brandy covosier much nicer simalar price morgans does taste cheap probably better for punch bowls

1st May 2020

Not THAT bad

It’s fine with a mixer, don’t really get the hate. For the price it’s decent value but I prefer Old J spiced.

25th April 2020

OMG what?

Should be ashamed of themselves! Disgusting filth disguised as palatable? I don’t think so! Will never touch this brand again! Complete and total crap!

16th April 2020

Vague hint of manufactured rum essence

SHIT! If you like a decent rum do not waste your time and money on this! It is hellish stuff. obviously aimed at the young alchopop would be rum drinker teen market. Get drunk quick and cheap. DIABOLICAL steer clear

16th April 2020

It has 35% alcohol so apparently not good enough to wash your hands with

Do not expect rum

This is to rum, what wine gums are to wine. Only bought it from Tesco express because the big stores had 2.5 mile Coronavirus cues and fancied a drop of rum for wk/nd if you like decent rum ie woods/ovd don’t bother with this shite as you will be wasting your time and money, and be disappointed

10th April 2020

Cheap and cheerful

Not bad for the money, but at a similar price point Admirals Old J spiced rum is far far superior.

20th March 2020

Very nice, if you rate 1star you're on crack

Whoever in the name of F**k gave this a 1 Star rating is on Crack Cocaine.
this is a very nice spiced rum as a mixer, admittedly not as good straight.
there are better rums out there in my opinion such as Kraken, however this is still very nice.

6th March 2020

feels like a million $

super tasty

18th November 2019

Rubbish, used to be the best. What have you done to ruin such a good spiced rum...

Awful rum, gone are the days where this was one of the best out there. Do not buy. Stay away. That might send a message to go back to the old recipe which was amazing.

2nd November 2019

Awful experience. I wouldn't even give it away for free.

In trying to get a decent rum collection together i bought this for nostalgic reasons, i remember it being not good but OK. This "New" bottle, i am sorry but i really cannot drink it. Its a travesty, the only saving grace is that at 35% it cannot legally be called rum in the EU. I will not buy Captain Morgan ever again.

24th October 2019

Pathetic taste to say the least. Bring original captain morgan back or you gonna close doors!

Dont know as i only enjoyed the original dark captain. For sure the taste and quality is totally destroyed. Shame on you. Gonna loose a lot of customers!!

16th September 2019

Change of recipe?

I've been a dedicated fan of Captain Morgan since it's introduction in 84. Have ventured away a few times but always come back. I buy half gallon bottles to keep in my stock at home but this latest bottle has a distinct difference in taste and that's how I would up here, trying to determine if it is a recipe change or a one-off fluke. I taste a distinct hint of both nutmeg and clove. Am I wrong? What's the story here?

22nd June 2019

Bring back Morgan spiced

As some of your reviews have highlighted, Morgan spiced was a beautiful drink, captain Morgan on the other hand is different nowhere near as nice and boy does it make me violently ill

22nd January 2019

Lousy new recipe

Been drinking Spiced Gold for many years. Recipe has definitely changed. Tastes lousy and have stopped buying!

28th December 2018

Bring back the original spice. I’ll never drink the spice gold again.

Nowhere near as good as original spice rum. I thought maybe it was just me so I’ve tried it a few times on different occasions but I don’t like the taste. Totally different and in a bad way.

24th December 2018

Bring back the Original Morgans Spiced

I drank Morgans Spiced for years. Really struggled when it was launched as not everyone stocked it. Over the years found my Morgan's Spiced everywhere. You then rebrand it, and say the recipe hasn't changed. I am not a hardened drinker, but please don't say it is the same. It is not the same, and I now get hangovers from hell. Why change something that wasn't broken. Listen to your public not your sales promoters.

30th November 2018

S**** piece o' s***

I am SO angry about what has happened to dear old Captain Morgan. The recipe that I experienced in the past years has been destroyed. After a bunch o' months, I gave in to temptation and bought some of this, so as to enhance the party atmosphere of an assignation. Boy gee whiz!. I couldnae believe it when the shit tasted like shit and smelled like shit. Gone was the perfumed aroma of old; in it's place a crappy scent o' rubbin' alcohol, as attested by another reviewer. Mixed with ginger beer, as of old, this shit be tasting o' shit - entirely unlike the last time when the velvety taste reminded one of all that is naughty and delicious. It appears that the recipe of old has been replaced by a crappy, shitty piece o' shit recipe that is presumably based around cost-cutting. Anyone who has experienced captain morgan in the past and continues to patronise this brand is in need of psychological examination. Because if you are of sound mind, and you have a sense o what spiced gold tasted like, you will readily acknowledge that the present offering is a shitty piece o' shit. Tonight we had about a 1/3 of a bottle, as you might surmise from my wit, and I have just now thrown the rest down the drain. Why did I do this? Because the classic recipe has been replaced by a shitty piece o' shit. DO NOT BUY.

1st November 2018

Don't buy it

Not good and not rum

19th October 2018

Death in a bottle

If I could give this new recipe a negative review I would. Captain has been my go-to for 10 years, never gave me a hangover or made me sick.
Now, I get physically ill, blackout, beligerebtnr drunk and extreme hangovers with just a few shots or mixers.
It is similar to the effect of being drunk off off cheap tequila or budweiser.
Won't touch it again unless it changes back.

3rd September 2018

Perfect mixer for its price.

For its price, its a killer in a Rum and Cola and gives its own twist to a Cuba Libre. Compared to a Sailor Jerry or Kraken it feels like their diluted versions without their own twists added. I do have to say both are still better, but that seems to show in the price too, at least in Finland.

To me it seems everybody rating it 1 star is trying to rate it as a sipper that it literally has never been supposed to be.

1st September 2018

My drink of choice

I like it with Pepsi Max. Good value spiced rum

10th August 2018

Original Spiced Rum....not so Original!!

Ordered 2 capt and cokes, we thought the bartender used Kessler instead of Capt. She said she went through same argument the night prior with another customer. Definitely not the good ole Capt. we were used to.

12th June 2018

Was only $13 a litre though

35% water and vanilla extract

10th June 2018

I can't be the only one

I remember when first tasting only 5/6 years ago thinking this was the best alcoholic drink I'd ever tasted. I recently opened a bottle, and it tastes like cheap vodka. So harsh, and really tough to keep down. What changed?

2nd April 2018

Not the same

Horrible, doesn't taste the same at all, has more of a rubbing alcohol smell now, while the old one smelled like vanilla and was very smooth. Also never had a hangover with the old recipe and now I get terrible hangovers.

27th January 2018

Cheap and nasty.

Oh my god this is just garbage. I have many spiced rums on the shelf and I will not give any of my decent drinks to anyone that claims to enjoy this crap. I have a couple of supermarket own brand gold spiced rums and they honestly taste better than Morgans.

31st December 2017

Not good at all now :-(

My husband and I have been drinking Morgans Spiced Rum for many years - our drink of choice. We poured a dram last night from a new litre bottle & honestly thought we had a bad batch. We poured it down the sink! You can actually smell the difference, this is definitely not the same "recipe" no matter what they say. Today we went to a different supermarket & bought a bottle & it is a different taste to the original but not as bad as the litre bottle we opened last night. Once this bottle is finished we will not be buying any more we'll stick to gin. Have Diageo not heard the saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it"?

5th November 2017

Really not very good

I don't know what to say other than this rum is really awful. Over sweet, cloying vanilla. I tried hiding it in cocktails but even this could not conceal the basic unpalatability of this drink. I ended up using it to sterilise a cut on my nephew's leg (he is 18 so that is probably legal). The rest got tipped away onto the lawn where there is still a bare grass-free patch to this day. Nothing against Captain Morgan per se but they really need to rethink this one.

30th September 2017

Dear oh dear oh dear

I thought I was going crazy until I read these reviews. It definitely changed flavours at the same time the bottle top changed from blue to gold. I can't say I ever paid enough attention to notice the name change. It's much sharper and less smooth with less vanilla. Tastes pretty rank now, I drink Bacardi oak heart instead. Not as good as the original morgans spiced but much better than this dishwater

31st March 2017

Morgans spiced

I have tried, really I have to get used to the fact that my beloved morgans spiced rum has been replaced by this filth but I just don't enjoy this captain morgans spiced rum. I even went so far as to call the customer support and they tell me it's the same thing but I KNOW it's not. Damned shame and shame on them for stopping get production of it. I have 1 dram of the original left on case of the apocalypse.

3rd January 2017

No es malo, pero es ron

No me gusta mucho el ron, es parecido al Havana Club, no esta mal, pero sinceramente paso.

23rd August 2015

pure rubbish

hi all i drank morgans spice for over 10 years and loved it,after the rebrand this drink is a cheap alcohol and wont be putting it near my lips again. shame on you diago trying to con honest people.

6th February 2015

Not the same

I have been drinking Morgan's spice for many years the main reason being it seemed to agree with me where other spirits don't and I never got a hangover. Since the change over to captain Morgan's I take a headache after only 1 drink and find it does not taste the same. Sorry to say I will not be drinking it again unless it changes back.

1st February 2015

Captian Morgan Spice Gold

Over priced

1st February 2015

Spiced rum / spiced gold

Whoever says that spiced gold and what everyone that has ever drank morgans spiced rum that has a (blue top) is talking rubbish as spiced gold has no vanilla in it and is way too sharp it's more like something a hardened alcoholic would drink rather than a nice rounded tipple that everyone I know liked bring back our original

25th January 2015

Spiced Gold

I too have been a fan of the original spiced rum for many years and was assured that the Gold was the same. Alas, having been at a friends house who had the original and having a dram of it followed by a dram from my bottle, the two are definately not the same. Please bring back the original spiced rum as I certainly won't be buying the Gold again.

29th December 2014


after drinking morgan spiced for a few year spiced gold is definitley not the same and i will have to look for a new drink please bring back the old one as myself and 3 friends normaly drink this and all feel the same

20th September 2014

Its Changed

Ive been drinking this since it came on to the market alas i bought a mew ltr bot and the flavour has changed more of a coffee note

6th September 2014

it IS the same!

I am going to have to disagree with every one here! It is the exact same liquid. I have no affiliation with the producers but I know for a fact it is the same. not changed liquid, not 'watered down' and actually not more expensive.. well other than the price of inflation which is where every brand and every consumer product gets more expensive. I cant disclose why I know this but trust me...It is the same stuff. oh...and I dont even drink it. Im a single malt drinker

26th July 2014

not the same great taste as morgans spiced!!

Ive drank morgans spiced for years & there is something no right with the taste in the new bottles renamed captain morgans even though the taste is meant to be the same! Its definitely no the same taste & tastes like its watered down. Disappointed, will have to find a new spirit to drink.

29th June 2014


There is no comparison between the Original and what is now being offered. No spice, no taste and no pleasure at all in the spiced gold. How can they get away with calling it "Original Spiced Gold?" It is cheap and nasty in comparison. I used to buy a couple of bottles per month have not bought one since l threw away the fist bottle of tge nasty stuff. Only had 4 measures out of it. NASTY NASTY

24th June 2014

Just bought a litre bottle thinking how nice Morgan's spiced was.

well this capt Morgan's spiced gold IS NOT the same it's nowhere near as smooth or nice tasting as Morgan's spiced. Last bottle I will buy.

14th June 2014

Original spiced vs original spiced gold

I was a relative newcomer to spiced rum and fell in love Captain Morgan's spiced (Original spiced). Like so many others, I now find it impossible to find. It seems to have been replaced by Captain Morgan Original spiced gold. They taste and look (the spiced gold being insipid and much paler) totally different! To add insult to injury, the 'gold' is more expensive!
Please, please, please bring back the old one!!!

27th May 2014

Spiced gold

Been looking in supermarkets for weeks to buy ordinary morgans spiced. Spiced gold on offer in Asda so tried it. Agree with everyone else gold is not as good. Where's the SPICE gone. Original tasted just perfect with Pepsi max and slice lime. Now tastes like I'm drinking diet coke! Please bring back original

11th April 2014

Spiced Gold is NOT the same as Spiced

this drink was always a favourite of my partner and I. whatever they have done to it they need to go back to the way it was. absolutely gutted.

28th February 2014

Spiced gold definitely not the same drink as Morgans spiced

I was out and about in Dundee Scotland, One bar sold Morgans spiced, which was great as usual, next bar sold spiced gold, I said that it was totally different, and I was assured it was the same as Morgans spiced, as previously mentioned above, it is definitely not the same, I asked the barman to google it, he did and he said it was exactly the same, I told him it definitely was not, i awoke this morning with a slight hangover, which I have never had before with drinking Morgans spiced,( I usually have between 5/6 shots with a mixer)and that was with only 2 shots of spiced gold, obviously mixing the 2 different drinks is not good, if they were allegedly the same drink I definitely would not have had a slight hangover, as above if this is the new drink on offer I will NOT be drinking it, please get it sorted !!

23rd February 2014

lambs spiced

I had just got into drinking the morgans spiced just before it changed and the other is not the same. I have however found lambs spice is just like the morgans was.

17th February 2014

absolutely shocking!! get it sorted

I have been drinking this for years and can assure u that it has changed!. Its completely a different taste, whatever u have added or taken away to obviously save money is so not working as you will see by your sales if not fixed. Totally agree with the other comments above

1st February 2014

Defo not The Same !!!!

I agree I have Drunk Morgans for many years and yes there is a difference and I have stopped buying it .My Niece works in Diageo she also has stopped drinking it spiced gold is vile <fact!!!!

28th January 2014


I totally agree with you. The new Gold, is a completely different taste and i will not be buying it anymore.

16th January 2014

Not the same!

I totally agree with you. The new Gold, is a completely different taste. I have been in contact with the company and they are telling me it is the same. Liars. They have ruined my favourite drink.

11th January 2014

Morgan Spiced

I can assure you that it is not only the branding that has changed. I know someone who works in Diageo and there is a difference between Morgan's Spiced and Captain Morgan's Spiced. I drank Morgan's Spiced for years and can no longer get hold of any. When I drink Captain Morgan's I get a terrible hangover. It's not as smooth as Morgan's Spiced.

23rd April 2013

@ morgans spiced

Whilst we no longer have any of the old 'Morgan's Spiced' bottles, it is only the branding that has changed - the delicious liquid inside the bottle has remained the same!

Not to be confused with Captain Morgan Original, this is still the spiced rum your husband knows and loves.

morgans spiced

I have a partner who has drank Morgans Spiced for a very long time! He does not like captain morgans, he states they are different! We are getting married this year and I want to know if I order a bottle of Morgans Spiced {as in picture} that is what I will get! Not Captain Morgans! Please help me, it will be the perfect wedding present!

31st January 2013
