Product Description

Captain’s Choice Original has a natural deep amber color and is presented in a classic amber bottle. The wonderful bay scent predominates with subtle notes of cinnamon and citrus. It delivers a slight “zing” to a freshly shaven face and then follows with a hint of warmth.  As it tingles and warms the skin, inhale slowly and savor a hearty bay rum aftershave for the very first time!

    I am VERY picky when it comes to scent and I have always loathed Bay Rum until I got my nose on Captain’s Choice Bay Rum which is now an ABSOLUTE must for me. If I’m down to a half bottle I must have a backup at all times. It is so smooth and intoxicating to smell. Also, their Sandalwood is my absolute favorite Sandalwood, I own several different kinds of Sandalwood, What can I say, I am a huge sucker for Sandalwood. As for Maggard’s, they simply CAN”T be beat. I have ordered thousands of dollars worth of items from them and they are unbeatable!!!!!! Neiman Marcus customer service from a shaving supply company.

    Absolutely fantastic aftershave. I had never tried the Bay Rum scent before but it smells very fresh and lasts a good amount of time too. There is a very slight burn after applying it, which lasts just the right amount, before it cools and leaves your face feeling smooth and fresh. Would highly, highly recommend the Captain’s Choice Bay Rum aftershave.

    Not bad, but not excellent. The scent doesn’t last too long and it’s heavy with the clove scent, no matter what anyone says. That being said, I LOVE cloves in aftershave. I don’t think that it “burns” as well as the less expensive, but time honored classic “Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum.” Now the Virgin Islands Bay Rum is OLD SCHOOL bay rum that smells better and feels better than Captain’s Choice.

    Did not care for this at all. Smelt so bad I had to return it. I am not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn’t it. If you know what your getting into and like it, go for it, but its not for me.

    I love this scent so much. It’s a very deep warm scent. Think spice and cinnamon. It somewhat of an old timey scent and my GF says it reminds her of grandpa. Not sure if that’s good or bad.

    For an alcohol based aftershave it’s very soothing and has a great face feel. I think this is thanks to the witch hazel and glycerin in the mix. I tend to stay away from alcohol based aftershaves but I make an exception for Captain’s Choice. I also like the fact that it is menthol free.

    I would love it if the Captain came out with a more modern scent like Fine American Blend or Platinum. I love Fine’s scents but his mixture just aren’t as soothing for me.

    Captain’s Choice Bay Rum Review

    I can see why the Captain is the favorite of many. It’s a solid performer that will let you know if your technique needs improving, while providing very good skin care after the burn fades.

    I really like the scent and skincare provided by this aftershave, but the burn is not to my taste. Many really enjoy the burn, which increases in intensity as shave technique lags. The company even makes a version with more burn – Cat O’ Nine Tails. I think I’ll skip that one! Thankfully, the burn only lasts a few minutes, as the product dries down to a subtle sweetness that does not interfere with colognes or EdTs. The scent is sweet and not cloven, and it matches their excellent RazoRock croap nicely.

    The only other bay rum I’ve used extensively is Krampert’s Finest Acadian, and I must say that I prefer it’s lack of burn and skin feeling. This is not to say that I don’t like Captain’s Choice, but rather that it comes in second for me. Anyone who like the burn will clearly reverse my ranking.

    Packaging: 9/10 for the brown glass bottle and cool label design
    Scent: 9/10 – excellent scent, perhaps a little sweeter than some
    Skincare: 7/10 – great alcohol burn for those seeking it, after cool down, the face is left smooth and not tight or greasy.

    I have a number of aftershaves in my rotation and this is one that I go to quite often. To my nose there is a heavier clove smell. This does have a bit more sting but my skin feels fresh and cleaner,

    Wonderful stuff that left my face feeling great! My wife loved the smell so that’s a huge plus.

    I have used more than a dozen bay rums, and this product has got them all beat, hands down! The scent is a clean, natural bay and rum, and unlike many bay rums, it has lots of added ingredients to soothe your post-shave skin. Just buy it, you’re gonna love it!!

    I’ve been a bay rum freak for over 20 years. Captain’s Choice is the best bay rum after shave that I’ve ever tried. You can smell the bay, it has hints of vanilla and is nice and spicy! My girlfriend likes it too – I give it five stars!!!

    I’ve been wet shaving for several months and have gotten very comfortable in what I like and don’t like. I can say that I really like this product and use one of the Captain’s Bay Rums on a daily basis. The Original Captain’s Choice Bay Rum is a fantastic scent that refreshes the skin perfectly to top off my daily shaves.
    This product is locally made here in the good ole’ US, by a hard working guy, putting out a superior product.
    Whether or not you’re new to wet shaving, give this product a try- and if you’ve tried it before and found yourself reaching for something else- do yourself a favor and give it a try again. It really is a superior product that tops off a shave nicely.
