Captain Morgan White Rum Rhum Blanc Review

Captain Morgan White Rum Rhum Blanc Review


One of the best things about going on a cruise is the ability to take home a few bottles of duty free liquor. Sometimes, that duty is substantial, and so the savings are substantial too. Hubby and I learned long ago that we needed to check the liquor cabinet, check local prices and make a list of what we “needed” prior to boarding our ship. We also pack single liquor boxes and plastic bags if we are flying home as you are no longer allowed to bring liquor on the plane (unless you are buying in Puerto Rico after you clear security that is). The last few cruises, the stores have packed the boxes very well though, and we haven’t used our own boxes in a while.

This time around we didn’t have many cruise stops. And when we did go into port, there seemed to be less liquor stores than in the past. So in our last stop, which was Jamaica, besides buying Jamaican coffee, we decided to get serious and look around for any good liquor deals. We picked up two bottles of rum: one Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, and one I had never seen before: Captain Morgan White Rum Rhum Blanc. These were $10 each for a liter.

Rum is fermented from sugar or molasses. When made, rum is clear. If making white rum, it of course remains clear but the golden or dark rums gain their color from cask aging or added coloring. While the sugar plant originates in Papua New Guinea, the islands of the Caribbean have produced rum for over 400 years. Sugar is actually the number one export of Jamaica.

The Captain Morgan White Rum Rhum Blanc is a blended from Canadian and Caribbean rums. It is 40 proof, quite sweet and smooth.

I normally like my run with diet Coke, but find this rum works very, very well with diet Cherry coke!

The distributor of the Captain Morgan White Rum Rhum Blanc looks to be out of Toronto, so that will be easy for me to get at a local duty free store – I hope. I have to tell you that while I am a Captain Morgan Spiced Rum loyalist, I found this just different enough from traditional rum to really enjoy!

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.

Baileys & Kahlua Iced Coffee Shake Recipe

I would like to start with some disclosure: I do not like Kahlua. I do like Baileys. With that in mind, my review: This is one of the best drinks I have ever had!

And I was not alone in this opinion. We (this is the royal “we” because this was alllllll hubby) served it at a get together recently. The initial reaction by most was, “No thanks” until the “Mmmmmms” and the eyes rolling back in the head from the sheer delight on our tongues from those in the initial pour convinced the initial naysayers to give it a go. This was a universal hit! Of the 10 people that tried it, 10 people loved it!

Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita Review


Last week I reposted my Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Review from last year, and I made mention that a Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita Review would be forthcoming… and here it is!

I really, really like Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Ritas, so I was extremely intrigued by Bud’s new product: Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita.

Bud’s Notes

Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita, an 8% alc/vol flavored malt beverage that blends the refreshment of Bud Light Lime with the taste of an authentic strawberry margarita. An 8oz serving of the 8% ABV version is 199 calories and has 23.6g carbs.

My Notes

I had a can of the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita three different times in the past two weeks so I could write this review up – and it wasn’t because I liked the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita, because I didn’t particularly. I kept giving it a go so I could figure out why I disliked it.

Poured, there is no head at all to the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita. It smells a bit like a strawberry, looks redish-pinkish in the glass, but it tastes like an artificial carbonated strawberry going down. This isn’t a good thing. It tastes nothing like a good strawberry anything to me, let alone a margarita.

To say I was disappointed in the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita is an understatement. I had such high expectations after the Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita, and was so looking forward to this product! Maybe that was the problem? My expectations were too high? I do know that while we will continue to buy the Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita, we will not buy the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita again.

Have you tried the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita? What did you think?

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.
