Updated on June 13, 2013

What is the best spiced rum?

I know it's a hard question, but someone has to answer it. They both have such a rich and influential history, its hard to pick one over the other. They have contributed so much to their cultures and history alike. They will be remembered by all in true pirate spirit.

But there can only be one pirate king of rum. Make sure you get your say!

Captain Morgan Rum History

Got Some Captain in You?

In 1654 Henry Morgan left home for the West Indies. A born leader, he quickly became Captain on his ship and famous as a legal pirate or Buccaneer, defending British interests and generally rocking the Caribbean.

His awesome exploits on the high seas earned him a knighthood and by 1680 Sir Henry Morgan was a plantation owner and Governor of Jamaica. There he lived out his final days until his death in 1688.

Centuries later he became the figurehead for a company that became as famous as the man himself. The Captain Morgan Rum Company.

        sailor jerry is much smoother. and it also has the ABV

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Sailor Jerry is the whole package; it is more mixable the cptn. and it is stronger! I may pay a few more bucks for SJ but it is well worth the few extra bucks! Sailor Jerry's all the way!!!!!!!

        Anyone who can make rum like Sailor Jerry deserves the best of the best. Captain Morgan needs to walk the plank because there is a new standard in rum production! all hail Sailor Jerry! (best, smoothest, and strongest rum I have ever tasted)

        Sailor Jerry's has a better flavor than Captain Morgan. Lately I've been drinking The Kraken.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Sailor Jerrys, why well its 92 proof has a better taste and is smooth as hell.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        sailor jerrys. no question about it

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Sailor Jerrys to me is like captain morgan with a set of nuts to it.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        I recently converted to Sailor Jerry. It has a much richer flavor that, in my opinion, combines with coke to form a much more flavorful drink.

      • MillBucks 5 years ago

        Sailor Jerry for me please!

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        they're both good- but I am getting a taste for Jerry these days. YUM

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Captain is great for girly drinks, but men, and chicks who can handle tattoos, prefer Sailor Jerry.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Captain is for minors. Sailor Jerry will put hair on your chest.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Going back to Captain Morgan is just depressing after drinking Sailor Jerry's. Its really THAT much better.

      Sailor Jerry - A Story of Art And Music

      Sailor Jerry Rum

      Sailor Jerry Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins, born on January 14, 1911 in Reno, Nevada, was a tattoo artist, and while he may not be old school pirate like Captain Morgan, he is a modern day pirate in his own right. The father of modern day tattooing. Sailor Jerry would symbolizes the masculinity of a time when thousands of enlisted men were embanked in Hawaii, during World War II.

      Collins entrusted his artwork to his two proteges, Ed Hardy and Mike Malone

      In 1999, Hardy and Malone partnered with a small independent Philadelphia clothing company to establish Sailor Jerry Ltd., which owns Norman's letters and art collection. As an anti-sweatshop company, Sailor Jerry Ltd. produces nearly all its items in the United States. Items are sold on the company's web site or from the Sailor Jerry Store at 116 S. 13th Street in Philadelphia, which frequently plays host to performances by independent musicians.

      Sailor Jerry Ltd. produces a 92 proof spiced Navy rum featuring a quintessential Sailor Jerry hula girl on the label. As the bottle is emptied, additional Pin-up girls designed by Sailor Jerry are visible on the inner side of the label. The rum is distilled in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It takes its influence from Caribbean rum, which sailors would spice with flavors from the Far East and Asia to make it more enjoyable to drink.
