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.
The private stock is decent. But still a far cry from good rum. It is better than standard captain by a good degree but I still don't think I would drink it neat or on ice...which to me, is a signature of a truly good rum
Jeg blander dog denne op med Cola, som den gør sig super fint til. Men kan også gå an som ren Rom.
I tried this for the first time a couple weeks ago and thought it was a smooth drink on the rocks. Although I would sooner spend my money on the Eldorado 12 they are both in the same price range but the Eldorado hands down a much better drink.
A Captain I enjoy drinking straight. A big step up for them.
As long as you like vanilla that is. This one has a bit of a strong vanilla aroma and taste, but it is offset by a good blend of spice and sweetness. The burn is stronger than I would prefer, but is tolerable. Private Stock wouldn't be my first choice for sipping, but it mixes really well and the price is great.
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.
The better of the Capt series, but strong on vanilla flavor
For $25 or $28 depending on where you buy it it's pretty nice over ice. The taste isn't anything that will blow you away but it's on the sweet side, if you like your rum sweet give this a shot.
Captain Morgan Private Stock is een gelimiteerde edite van het Jamaicaanse merk, een rum die vol lekkere en verleidelijke tonen zit. De fles opzich ziet er al prachtig uit maar wat deze Private Stock zo speciaal maakt is uiteraard de kostbare vloeistof die erin zit, een combinatie van kruiden, kwaliteitsrum en de expertise van Captain Morgan die leiden tot een product van ongekend niveau.
Bij opening van de fles vult de kamer zich met aantrekkelijke aroma’s van onder andere exotische kruiden en specerijen onderbouwd door tonen van vanille en kaneel. Het geheel eindigt in een lange en zijdezachte afdronk die de naam Captain Morgan waardig is, een aanrader!
My group of tasters were at an event I organized and to most of us this came as an unexpected surprise. Pleasant and good value.
Love this one... Vanilla spiced rum is always good with coke and limes.
Ein feiner Rum fürs Geld. Schön on the rocks. Mit nem hauch von Vanille?
I love sweet rums. So I expected to really like this one based on other people's reviews. It's definitely sweet and syrupy!
Notes of molasses, maple syrup, vanilla, and spice... this has all the flavors I like in a rum - except rum. It's a good drink for sure, but lacking in the rum department.
I got this on sale, apparently no one really buys it. Maybe it's the mix of the Captain name with the relatively higher price? It's not great stuff, I wouldn't even call it pretty good. But it was definitely better than average. I don't know how else to describe it than "like the regular Captain, but a little better."
smooth. no after taste. best of Captain Morgan brand.
This rum has typical Captain Morgan notes with a hint of vanilla and oak flavor. Not the best but worth the value
This is better than the regular captain morgan spiced rum, but that is not saying much. It is too syrupy sweet for my taste. You can do much better for the money.
Not to be enjoyed as a sipper but a mixer given the choice I will have the black spiced over this rum but it does have a place in my collection.
It's like kraken if kraken didn't suck. Not a smooth sipper, thick oily and sweet but gets way too much heat. I don't care for it that much because of the excessive amounts of molasses/brown sugar with vanilla. It makes a distinct diet coke and rum but I think there are better options. Especially for it's price (25$)
good spiced mixer
Nice sipper with some ice.
Lot's of vanilla on the nose.
Really miss a bit of oak/wood in this rum, but what can you expect after only 2 years of aging.
Spiced rum can definitely be a welcome break from the normal rum if you don't take yourself too seriously. They are great with coke but its hard to get to passed the general 'spiced rum' taste. This will change your mind though. It can definitely be drank neat and offers a lot more than just a 'smoother Captain Morgan'.
My problem with this rum is that I can't really get all that much rum flavor. there is just too much spice for my palate. It's easy to drink and smooth. Decent in a rum and coke. It is very sweet and has a big, huge really, vanilla profile.
A bit sticky and spicy for me but an easy drinker for most.
