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.
It's a smooth spicy sweet flavoured good for mixing
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.
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.
À venir prochainement.............................
I could not enjoyed this spiced rum.
Too sweet, and too much spicy flavor for me.
This sweety vanilla soup is horrible. So dissapointed in this rum. Tastes like toothpaste with a strong mint and vanilla flavour. Smells the same.
Was disappointed in this. It is just another captain Morgan party rum. Tried to drink it straight but still too rough. Mixed it with ginger and it was a good drink, but if you are mixing it just by regular captain spiced
I've been generally sticking to the middle shelf of spiced and dark rums at my local
Stores, thought I would go up a shelf for $10 more. Didn't experience what I wanted, I was hoping for a 1671 flavour but not even close. Too much of a lemon citrus taste that hangs on all the way to the aftertaste. Didn't like it straight with cola or ginger beer. Just not for me.
I was out of state and found a liquor store with limited selection. I didn't care for the standard Captain Morgan but I thought this might be better. To my taste is isn't. Another flavor I didn't care for without the smoothness of an aged rum. I don't see any more spiced rum in my future. My normal drink is aged rum on the rocks and I'm sticking with that. I don't consider myself a connoisseur but I can tell what I like and this was it.
Not work for me.
Tons of sugar and tasty like a young distillate flavor.
I do not recommend.
Have had a bottle for 6 years have tried it 4 time just not for me
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
I'm guessing the "private stock" refers to their private stock of pancake syrup they add to rubbing alcohol to get this stuff. Comes on very sweet, and thin, finishes with a strong, soulless, alcohol burn. Seems like it would be a lot more tolerable in Coke. Not much else to say. There are far better better spiced rums with less sugar, for less money. Just not a good rum.
I don't like Captain Morgan's rum. Usually good smell but taste is missing
Too sweet. Spices overwhelm and tastes artificial. Horrible aftertaste. I thought things would have improved since the horrific cheap Captain Morgan rum from my college days in the early to mid 80s...I was wrong...just expanded into other horribleness. If I had started with this rum when I got into rums earlier this year I might have rated it higher but I've sampled far superior rums than this so this is indeed barely drinkable and I would have to drown in Coke Zero in order to make it palatable. So I'm down to this: should I pour it down the sink into the septic tank (thereby inebriating the microorganisms in there) or push this off to some friends (thereby running the risk of making them EX-friends)....hmmm....
Choice is obvious...
PARTY IN THE SEPT TANK...MICROORGANISMS ABOUT TO GET TANKED!!!!
Let me paint this for you: Drinking "Captain Morgan Private Stock" might be like having a melted chocolate candy bar slowly poured from the pan over your tongue. so thick that it induces a feeling of suffocation by the thick, sugary goo slowly sliding down your throat. This "rum" is TOO thick, sweet and clingy. Echh. I bought one bottle, never again. CM has some good rums but this one is a rip-off and a real disappointment. Ugh, Just my opinion. Thanks. Never again.
Tried the Captain Morgan Private Stock on a rainy Sunday. Fairly nice bottle with a childish label. Semi dark color, but most certainly from artificial coloring. Very strong artificial vanilla flavors to the nose and throat. Long afterburn laced with artificial vanilla.
Can a rum have too much of a good thing? I found this one to be overloaded with caramel and artificial vanilla with a stale alcohol aftertaste and a peppery bite.Needs to be cut with ice or water just to be drinkable.Would not buy again.
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?
