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.
They didn't even try with this one. Someone poured a large bag of sugar into a barrel of semi-aged bulk rum, added some vanilla and baking spices, and called it private stock.
The stuff tastes like acid reflux. I would actually serve it to my worst enemy because, who else?
The amount of vanilla overwhelms anything else that might be an asset. Regular Capt. is a better product.
edited to add sugar test results- 45g
Sugar: 45- 50 gpl. Not much to say about this but if you read the label you will see that there is a lot of sugar added to this rum to where it is close to being a desert rum. It's got a bit of vanilla and caramel and spice in it and overall I would say that it's agreeable to those that don't like rum without cola. Don't mix this with anything sweet. I suggest that you put it on ice, or on ice cream. It's a good value rum, but I like a little or a lot more taste.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Bohatá vůně, plná, nasládlá. Vše v linii káva-kůže-čokoláda. (86 b)
Chuť: Kořenitě nasládlá. Zprvu tenčí, lehká, jemná chuť, ale postupně přechází do hřejivého koření, dřeva, čokolády, pralinek, se skořicovým dozvukem. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Od této značky jsem nic skvělého neočekával, navíc i kategorie spiced ve mně důvěru moc nebudí, o to větší bylo překvapení při ochutnávce. Litrovka pod šest stovek se jeví jako dobrý nákup.
Captain Morgan trying to break into the upper end of the market. Good , just not great.
Great Rum, spicy and mild. Delicious on the rocks!!!
This was drinkable and found in most stores but I wouldn't use it to try and make any impressions on anyone. It was acceptable, but I found it rather pedestrian and commonplace.
I was hoping for a Puerto Rican rum to mix Zombies with but this unpalatably sweet and spiced rum is not fit for drinking.
Beru ho jako startovací rum pro porovnávání. Dobře pitelný na víkendové akce.
After trying many types of CM-rum, I think this is the best. It’s one of my favourites, but not the all time best rum that I have tasted.
Helt klart en positiv överraskning. Härlig sötma.Lätt drucken
Better marinades are available for less expense. Would not even recommend as a mixer.
Comparing this to the original Captain, it is better but not by much. It is very sweet and it does have some vanilla and spices, but that’s about all. I won’t drink it straight and if I’m in the mood for a high end rum and coke I’ll drink it, but that’s really it.
Never really tried this Rum until about a year ago and it for sure is a go to for me. When I think of Captain Morgan I think of the commercialized version which is not a real representation. This is more like what I would call Rum. Hints of Vanilla and Caramel . A great addition to the liquor cabinet. You wont feel ashamed bringing this one out.
Even if that rum is maybe more a liquor than a real rum, its worth the price. Good enough to sip, but better in a Cuba libre.
Growing up, Capt'n -N- Coke was kind of a family favorite drink. I discovered this version a few years ago and haven't had a bottle of classic Capt'n since. While I've come to love many other rums, I will always keep a place in my heart, and my cabinet, for this classic. As always, I prefer my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
The medium mahogany colour looks like a fine aged rum but this would be wrong. Vanilla and brown sugar are what this rum is all about. It mixes with coke fine and can even be sipped but again, not much of an aged rum.
CM Private Stock is aromatic, smooth, & easy to drink. Great as a mixer & smooth enough to enjoy on the rocks. Definitely a “7” 🏴☠️
This rum won’t win any awards but it’s very drinkable as a mixer. It is the best rum of the brand and doesn’t have an overly synthetic taste like other cheap spiced rums
If you're going to get a sipping rum just splurge a little more and get an El Dorado. Better yet a Kirk and Sweeney !! This is begginer rum ! Not bad. Just not good either. Rum and Coke !!
Not work for me.
Tons of sugar and tasty like a young distillate flavor.
I do not recommend.
Downing it in an hour playing D&D and had no regrets.
This one is definitely a level up from the usual stock, like it straight, with ice.
Captain Morgan is a reliable drink because every bar stocks it - this takes the standard bottle and adds a whole lot of deliciousness! The vanilla notes are a bit strong, but otherwise I really enjoy this one.
