I think the myspace link should be removed - as far as i can tell it has nothing to do with the company.

it's very acerb actually :)


What's with the "it is improper to use the expression" line at the bottom? It doesn't describe why it's improper. Removed, unless someone wants to add in why it was improper. Zchris87v 06:52, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Hmm, I'm fairly sure that the reason it was like that was because Captain Morgan specifically was a sailor, and it is insulting to refer to a sailor as a pilot or driver, I suppose. Though I suppose the point is moot not :) AC 14:48, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Sugar content?[edit]

Is this rum sweetened -- does it have added sugar? Badagnani 20:56, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

No, spirits don't contain added sugar 'cause it would make it a liqueur. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:37, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Of course this rum is sweetened. It has around 22g/L sugar added. A liqueur may only be called as such if it contains at least 100g/L. Schlimmerdurst (talk) 19:45, 19 October 2017 (UTC)


this article sounds like it was written by whatever company makes the drink. anyone with me? Goldencrisp87 05:11, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

I agree. It reads like an advertisement, not an encyclopedia article. Cazort 03:23, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I have tried to make changes to the article to reflect the conviction of a man in Delaware for pouring the beverage on an electric burner and killing three people. This is a historical and judicial fact. But my addition is continually removed. I suspect the author works for the company. 06:29, 30 October 2012 (UTC)~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Foxofjapan (talkcontribs)

Fact or not, it doesn't belong on Wikipedia. Please see WP:UNDUE and WP:NPOV. The section you insist on adding reads like an attack on the company. Not to mention that this info doesn't help the reader understand the company. Please cease from adding this content, and discuss the matter further if you think it deserves inclusion here. And for the record, I have no affiliation with the Captain. NatureBoyMD (talk) 18:49, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

De-advertising this article: History section first[edit]

I think it is not necessary to mention about Henry Morgan any more in this article, since he has no real relationship with the rum.

To say, only the following in that section is relevant and reliable:

In 1944, the Seagram Company started producing rum under the name Captain Morgan Rum Company.
In 1983, Captain Morgan Original Spiced rum was introduced to the United States.
Captain Morgan is now produced by The Diageo Corporation.

If no opinion is raised in the following week I would remove the entire section in the exception of the above lines. --Samuel CurtisShinichian-Hirokian-- TALK·CONTRIBS 13:48, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

I agree. I'm going to remove some of the material. I think this page should link to Henry Morgan; anything about Henry Morgan should be kept on that page. Cazort 03:25, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Invalid link[edit]

There is an external link to Historical Look at Captain Morgan that points to a link that has nothing to do with the company or rum altogether. I am removing it. If this can be better relinked, please do. --Stivo 22:15, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Captain Morgan Spiced Gold[edit]

The international part of Captain Morgan's official website has a product called "Captain Morgan Spiced Gold". ( )

Quote: Morgan's Spiced offers the same great taste of Original Spiced Gold as sold in Scotland and the United Kingdom.

Is this another product, or just another name for Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum? I'm from Germany, where Original Spiced isn't available, but Spiced Gold is a perfect substitute. By the way, it seems the name of Original Spiced in the UK isn't "Original Spiced Rum", but "Original Spiced Gold". Why? (talk) 10:41, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Proof vs. abv[edit]

Listing alcohol content by proof is archaic and ambiguous. Can anyone be bothered to update it to show abv values? Or does anyone think we shouldn't? I'm assuming the figures given here are based on the modern-ish USAian definition of '°proof = 2*abv' but it's hard to be sure. -- (talk) 00:48, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

How is it archaic and ambiguos? Mercy11 (talk) 03:10, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Because the definition of proof varies between Britain and the US etc.... (talk) 10:44, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Black Label?[edit]

Under "Varieties" the list names "Black Label" in this line:
"Deluxe Dark - More expensive than Black Label."
But nowhere I find what that "Black Label" is... please add, or explain in the article, if different names are used for the same product. ( (talk) 19:30, 5 July 2011 (UTC))

Seth Rollins[edit]

@EdgarCabreraFariña: regarding Special:Diff/679089703 I titled it "influence on culture" because your rum and mascot being popular enough to make the face of the WWE for the past decade make multiple references to it to berate the company's current champion is a big deal.

Raw is not merely widely-watched for wrestling fans, it's widely-watched period.

  • Quoth John Cena and Seth Rollins on the RAW before Summer Slam 19 August 2015 quoting John Cena from the Raw before SummerSlam (August 17): "I figured there was no chance in hell I was ever getting close to that championship again until Captain Morgan over here opened his big fat stupid mouth!"
  • 31 August 2015 John Cena: "do I have a match against Captain Morgan for the United States Championship?"

This is major exposure and brings brand awareness to an audience who might not otherwise pay attention to the commercials. This is undeniable. Ranze (talk) 22:38, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Why is United States Virgin Islands listed as the drink's origin? It states quite clearly that it originated in Kingston, Jamaica circa 1944.

The Virgin Islands only appears in the current history of Captain Morgan because Diageo moved operations there in 2010. It's misleading otherwise. What's up with that? Pounamuknight (talk)23:49, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

I've waited two months for this to be corrected but nothing, so I've made the adjustment. Please comment if this is incorrect. Thank you. Pounamuknight (talk)15:19, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
