captain morgan CANNON BLAST abv (35%) Captain Morgan’s Cannon Blast Spiced Rum is an intensely delicious shot that is citrus sweet with a spark of heat. The sweet citrus delivers a pleasing and delicious front end, while providing a finish with a warming (but not overwhelming) sensation.
For those unfamiliar with the product, it’s called Captain Morgan Lime Bite which offers the same base vanilla rum flavor that the original product offers, minus the caramel color and including a new artificial lime flavor. The company decided to cut out the middle man, in this case, the lime wedge/lime juice garnish that usually accompanies a rum and coke cocktail. Much like its predecessor is has great mix ability whether it be cola, lemon lime soda, ginger ale, or juice.
