Captain Morgan rum brand today announced a new expression of spiced rum made in the US Virgin Islands, incorporating a blend of spices designed to provide a luxurious, full-bodied flavor.

Captain Morgan 1671 commemorative blend offers a taste of chocolate and dark fruits with hints of vanilla. Finished in Spanish Oak and delivered in a unique jug designed to reflect golden age of pirating, this new rum contains palatable elements derived from the type of barrels that were believed to have been on board his ships.

In 1671, Captain Henry Morgan set his sights on Panama City, the richest city in the western hemisphere. Amidst his raid and ultimate capture of Fort San Lorenzo, Morgan lost five ships, including his famed flagship: The Satisfaction. What will forever stand as a historic battle in Panamanian history now serves as inspiration for the Captain Morgan Rum Company’s newest offering.

Available only for a limited time, Captain Morgan 1671 Spiced Rum not only celebrates the brand’s legacy, but also provides adult consumers with a rare opportunity to enjoy a bold take on the Captain Morgan Rum Company's original blend.

The recipient of a gold medal at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the new 1671 expression is bottled at 70 proof and priced at $19.99 for a 750ml bottle.

The Captain Morgan brand recently released a clear white rum, in addition to many other flavored and spiced expressions.

Captain Morgan rums are created and marketed by Diageo, the largest spirits company in the world.
