Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Captain Morgan Private Stock rum is produced from molasses and aged for over 2 years in ex-bourbon barrels before being blended with spices.
The Captain Morgan brand was created in 1945 and named after the famous pirate and eventual governor of Jamaica Captain Henry Morgan.The rum's original home was Puerto Rico with it was distilled by Seralles, but is now St Croix.
Tasty, but not quite great
Of the dozen or so rums I have had, this is my second favorite. I was never a fan of captain Morgan spiced rums, but this has some really nice qualities and one can easily tell that the quality is higher than the cheaper bottles.
A good bourbon barrel aged rum. Great value for the price, mixed it really shows the hints of bourbon, almost tastes like a mix of rum and coke and a Bourbon and coke.
Obviously if one is looking for legit “good” rum, they steer clear of Captain Morgan altogether. The private Stock is actually decent though. Those who like rum on the sweeter side would probably be ok with it, especially as a mixer. You get a strong vanilla scent on the nose as well (which I enjoy). I keep a bottle to mix with coke on hand at all times.
More subtle spice than the usual spice and less vanilla which I am thankful for. The price is a bit pricey for a moderate range spiced rum. An ok spiced rum and the better one from Captain Morgan.
I received a half gallon of this as a gift. I was pleasantly surprised! Tasty and even sipped over ice and was pleased. Warm spices. Mild in the mouth and throat. Makes fantastic cocktails!
