Diageo has rolled out a new blend of its Captain Morgan rum brand across the US.

Captain Morgan 100 Proof Spiced Rum is an alternative to the original rum, targeting drinkers looking for a "full-flavoured" taste, the company said today (24 November).

"Captain Morgan 100 Proof Spiced Rum offers a hint of vanilla and dry fruits, creating an exceptionally different and smooth taste," said Nagisa Manabe, vice president of Captain Morgan.

The brand extension is available nationwide in a range of sizes from 50ml to 1.75l.
