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.
nice with cola smoother than the normal and you can taste the difference.
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.
The better of the Capt series, but strong on vanilla flavor
Bedste Captain Morgan Rom jeg har smagt til dato.
Kan fint drikkes rent, men tror den ville være super i drinks.
Positivt överraskad av denna. Inte den bösta rmmen men går absolut att sippa på
Enjoyable when mixed with coke but certainly pricey for mixing.
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
es un ron de sabores fuertes, no de mucha complejidad, pasable con club soda y coca cola
Smoothest out of the main rums from the captain but not anything to recommend to a real rum drinker
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.
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'.
Je crois que ce Capitaine, est le meilleur de la série.
Jeg blander dog denne op med Cola, som den gør sig super fint til. Men kan også gå an som ren Rom.
Don't get me wrong, Captain Morgan produces a lot of good products. I have tried, and rated a lot of their rum. This one however falls short of my expectations. Just OK.
To much vanilla and suger. It may mix well but it is not a sipper.
A nice go to rum for a Cuba Libre. Too harsh for drinking neat, but serviceable with plenty of ice and lime wedge.
Goes great with fruit drinks or ginger ale. As a sipper it's ok. If you want rum and coke, get the regular stuff
If you don't like sickly sweet vanilla this wont be for you, but if your stuck at the in-laws over the holidays it might just get you by, barely. It is great for the price and availability.
This may be the sweetest rum I have ever tried. Some pleasant flavors and drinkable but sweetness overpowers the drink. May be a good one if you are just starting to drink rum neat.
When you don't feel like bringing a bottle of wine to a BYOB, this makes for a good little sipper (on the rocks)
Very sweet, tried different mixers and still couldn't enjoy it. Finished the bottle while on a vacation only because it was the last rum and nearest store was 60 miles away.
There are so many mixed reviews on this one, so I had to try the top rated one from The Captain since their 1671 was long gone before I could try it. As you can tell, I am now running out of rums to try that are easily available and priced sensibly. I knew before I plunked down $26 for this bottle that it was a sugar bomb with 45 grams per liter of added sugars and other things. God knows what, but it screams artificial. All I can taste is pepper, vanilla, and strange chemicals. This will give you one king hell of a hangover the next day if you drink more than one small glass. I am not about to try because I know what will happen based up my knowledge of added sugars. This one is just too much. But to new rum drinkers, it may just taste good because it takes a few years to graduate from ice cream and snow cones full of syrup.
To give you an idea, as of this writing, the top 12 most popular rums on this site all have 20 grams per liter of added sugar or more except for Havana Club 7 from Cuba that is not available in the USA. Interesting find! Most new rum drinkers are attracted to those sweet rums and sugar bombs. How does one break that cycle and work their way down to dry rums with only 0-9 gpl of added sugar.? Drink LOTS of this stuff in one night!!!! Suffer like hell the next day!!!! Then you will be looking up semi-dry rums (with only 10-19 gpl of added sugar) and most of those will not make you sick the next day.
Update 11 days later: As usual with any new rum, I only take one sample for the rating and then leave the bottle sit for months unless it is really good. This one had all the makings of eventually going down the drain despite my generous rating of 5. I poured some on the rocks and it is at least tolerable to drink. There are also a lot of rums that are worse than this one that I have ranked even lower in my "cabinet". Since this is the best from the Captain, I now change their name to Captain Crap! Of the two other mass producers of rum, both Bacardi and Cruzan each have 5 rums that I have rated better than this one.
Youngsters, do yourself a favor and bid anything by The Captain farewell and shove his ass out to sea without a paddle!!! It is now time for you to move on to MUCH better rums!
Commercial upgraded rum with very easy and uncomplicated body. Good for shots at a disco, bad for real rum enthusiasts.
It's not a bad rum. A bit too sweet to drink neat, though on the up side the extra sugar cuts a bit of the harshness of cheap liquors. Tasting wise, it's largely similar to standard Captain's, but sweeter, with a bit more vanilla and maybe a hint more clove.
