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.
A lot of snobbery and low ratings on here no doubt because it is Captain Morgan's. I'm not a huge fan of his myself but this is the exception. Lovely sweet honey flavours that glides down with no burn. Keeps you wanting more. Great value.
I brought this to hunting camp one year, I'm the only one who drinks rum there, and I finished the bottle in one weekend. I thought it was fantastic on the rocks.
I could even go so far as to say, thus far, this is one of my all time favorite rums. It's smooth, full and absolutely delicious.
At first glance i love the look of private stock. However, not my favourite. I would drink this rum to save my more favorable rums. Or, could i say my private stock of rum? Now dont get me wrong its good. But it to me is more of just a drinking rum. Like i never sip this rum. Always put in coke and drank like a beer really. Other rumsare better for sipping than this one. And some are even better for mixing. But if youre a rum fan, and just want something different, non-expensive, with some good quality, to save your other rums for another time, andto mix with coke. This is a perfect rum to do so.
Edit: i love private stock now. I still believe its not a finer rum however, i drink it the most ive come to find. Its cheap. Its tasty, i love to mix it with vanilla coke. I even bought a captain morgan glass just for it. It might not be a first xhoice for some but its a reliable choice for me. Upgrade from a 7 to an 8. Just becsuse of the satisfaction ive gotten from it over time. I have now made it a 9 rating. I love private stock. I keep getting new rums and new rums and it makes me see jow much better private stock is.
for the price i believe that it is pretty good. It has a sweetness to it that I enjoy. I drink it neat not well suited to mix with coke.
One of my old time favourite. Smooth and sweet . Perfect by itself .
This is a great rum, great taste and very well price. No hangover which is the best.
This stuff is honestly amazing. Don't let the brand steer you away. You can obviously mix this and drink it on the rocks. It is sweeter, but it's delicious! If you like captain and coke, you'll love this, and won't want to go back to original spiced.
Nice smmoth rum. Perfectvfor sipping neet. Vanilla notes.
Starting to see captain commercials again, what happened to the Kraken Commercials?Got this 6 month ago for retirement. was drinking Irish Whiskey. I like it.
I'm not normally a fan of captains, but the Private Stock is one I enjoy! At the price, you don't feel bad mixing it into a cocktail. My favorite is the Captain Jaeger, where you take the captain into a glass of ice, add a splash of Jaegermeister and top of with coke.
Has popular as Captain Morgan Rums are, this one stands out as one of the best quality-price rums on the market. Great sweet ''Vanilla'' taste that you can smoothly drink.
Quite a sweet taste, almost spiced. But a nice smooth drink with ice only.
At first i tried this i thought that is not bad rum because its CM, people think that it will be very spiced but no! only vanilla flavour is dominated, but none spice, most sweet rum i have ever drunk. It only 2yo but feel like more, it reminds me more older diplomatico 12yo, that is not as sweet like this rum but is more complete ans smooth, also more expensive, summary: will buy def again, nice to drink it straight also with coke or mix.
Wanted to give a different spiced rum a shot. Private stock came recommended do picked up a bottle. Glad I did, it's much better than original Captain. Sweet, spicy and the vanilla isn't overpowering.
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.
If you don't know much about sipping rums, then the Captain Morgan's Private Stock is a great starter to get you away from normal cocktail mixers. It's sweet overtones and mellow, caramel and vanilla aftertastes will set this one apart from it's brethren.
I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and this rum was a pleasant surprise that filled this need. Very smooth, sweet, and easy on the wallet. I have no problems having a glass of this neat or on the rocks.
This one is definitely a level up from the usual stock, like it straight, with ice.
Surprisingly smooth. Enjoyable on the rocks. Just slightly to sweet.
For a long time this has been my go-to drinking rum. Good over ice which brings out more of the already present and delicious, rich sugarcane taste, or with a splash of Coke to compliment the caramel undertones. Represents the best spiced flavor that Captain Morgan has to offer. A must try.
If this is the same as Capt. Reserve this is my favorite. The bottle shape is exactly the same. It is the most expensive Capt. although very affordable. I like mixing or drinking over ice.
it is a sweet blend soft in the mouth with a small kick
Seductive scents of banana, vanilla, nuts and spices fills my nostrills with delight.
Spice and sweet molasses hits the pallate and surprices me with an unexpected roundness.
Always considered the captain to be a mixer but this one is a great sipper.
