Old Captain have light, quite original aroma, which have a bit overriped banana and hint of mint. Taste is light, bit of sweet banana, hint of wood. Burn is light and aftertaste short but quite bitter. Banana aroma is a bit artificial, it feels young rum is processed a bit to have more matured flavour. It’s quite different than most other cheap neutral rums. Slight banana flavour comes also to cocktails, but it do not disturb so much. Bitter finish leaves a bit harsh and rough appearance.
