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
Encouraged by many positive comments, stating mostly that Private Stock is 'underrated', I decided to give it a go - unfortunately I must have missed what others see in this spirit, that makes it worth recommendation.
It is definitely different from other products of CM brand, in a positive way. You can smell and taste and actual rum, despite being spiced. However, it is build upon an overwhelming sweetness/vanilla; first sip was a pleasant surprise, however couple of sips later the whole experience turned into failure, when I realized I would not be able to try another glass. It's like you want to feel the rum itself, but vanilla keeps squeezing your stomach saying 'not this time, amigo'.
I don't think I will buy another bottle and definitely I do not recommend it to anyone.
This rum is unique for party time, I like this rum in contrast that I "hate" all Captains rums, because they are without soul. If you are also not fun of basic Captains rum, please try this one, you will be nice surprised, I recommend it.
Private Stock will obliterate everything you thought you knew about Captain Morgan.
This aged spiced rum carries notes of sweet molasses and dark chocolate complimented by a cinnamon clove-like spice finish. It has some heat as to be expected from a spiced/aged rum But nothing too unbearable. I would recommend large mold ice. Sipping neat gets a little too sweet with this one.
For the price it's a great introduction to the world of sipping rums.
