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.
Ok this rum is what it is and I think the flavor is very nice and enjoyable. The ole Captain won Lots of Vanilla, sweet and very enjoyable. The Private Stock would be served well on ice cream. I served this at a blind rum tasting of around 25 rums. Now given that only a few guys know anything about rum everyone consistently gave it a 8-9 out of 10. I scored it a 7 but it is a good 7.5. Excellent priced tasty rum.. Can go as a high end Rum and Coke if yur shy with neat..
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.
es un buen ron , complejo no muy alcoholico , lo refiero con un hielo, los sabores muy balanceados , se nota la vainilla, color acaramelado justo, lo volvere a comprar
The only way i find I like this rum, is with coke. Has a very good vanilla taste. Doesn’t mix well with fruit juice.
Intense to the nose and pleasant but seems artificial and sugary. +1 for disclosing ingredients.

Notes of leather, Tobacco, Vanilla, and citrus in the Nose and taste. I like this Rum even with the Bite. It mixes well with a Coke, but I’ve found the cheaper sodas actually work better as a mixer. Try Faygo Cola, it less sweet than Coke and Pepsi and let’s more of the Run flavors come through without burying them. While it’s not quite a sipping Rum, it would do if that’s your budget as it’s above it’s price point in flavor.
Velké překvapení, vůně sladší, tropické ovoce a koření, chuť jemná, sladká, koření, med a pomeranč, konec ostřejší, velmi chutný
Honestly, this rum achieves what it was intended to do-- be a better version of regular Captain Morgan, while still being accessible to the Captain audience.
It's a solid enough rum to drink by itself, if that's your style. The spices make it pretty easy to stomach, though they don't give it the more mature flavors of an aged rum. Over ice, there's certainly nothing wrong with the rum.
Likewise, it's not a rum that's so special that you'll consider it to be unmixable. Rather, this rum is a great choice for mixed drinks. I preferred it in coke over a dark and stormy, but it was quite good in both, and I certainly didn't feel guilty about enjoying it in any other way than it's purest form.
For the price point, you can do better, and you can definitely do worse. As long as you don't go into this rum expecting something that it's not, you won't be disappointed.
My favorite rum to mix with coke. Very smooth and easy to drink.
After reading other reviews, I thought this would be better than Bacardi Ocho for sipping. This is totally disappointing for sipping! The Bacardi Ocho seems like a perfect 10 compared to this. The flavorings are overpowering. No smoothness at all. Each sip has a bite that makes me want to spit it out. Mixing it with my tea made it drinkable. Not worth the $22 I paid for it.
I know taste is very subjective. Kinda wondering how it got great reviews from many people. Maybe I’m just new to sipping my drinks.
Brought back from Cuba one time and wasn't disappointed.
Smooth a flavorful, mixes or straight on the rocks
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.
