Five ships were lost on the bottom of the Caribbean during this battle, including his flagship The Satisfaction. After almost 350 years, remains of a 17th century fleet were discovered in 2012, as part of an expedition funded by the Captain Morgan brand.”The life and legacy of Henry Morgan serve as an integral source of inspiration for us as we continue to develop innovative product offerings and creative marketing campaigns,” Jesse Damashek, Director of Innovation, Diageo North America, said in a statement. “Every adventure, and especially every victory, is one worth celebrating responsibly, and we are proud to offer adult consumers Captain Morgan® Sherry Oak Finish Spiced Rum for a limited time.”To commemorate Morgan’s legendary battle, as well as the recent historic discovery, the brand releases the new rum drink.Sherry Oak Finish Spiced Rum is finished with Sherry Oak, which results in a rich and flavorful take on Captain Morgan’s signature blend. It offers a smooth yet subtly sweet taste of oak, sherry wine, vanilla, caramel, dark cherry and cocoa, with a slight floral undertone.The limited edition rum is bottle in a unique design with a detailed, metallic label. As the liquid leaves the bottle, commemorative artwork and a synopsis of Morgan’s 1671 battle are revealed on the backside of the label.Read more: http://www.ballerstatus.com/2013/07/01/captain-morgan-launches-limited-edition-sherry-oak-finish-spiced-rum/#ixzz2aTYMPuc5
