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.
I enjoy spiced rums and I have to say this my favourite from The Captain. My liquor cabinet is rarely without one of these.
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.
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.
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.
Quite a sweet taste, almost spiced. But a nice smooth drink with ice only.
This rum did not taste the way I thougt it would. This is actually very very good. Quite sweet, but very nice
it is a sweet blend soft in the mouth with a small kick
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.
For me it's a fantastic sipper. Lots of vanilla, barely any fire.
I felt this rum was very good on the rocks with a squeeze of lime. Was very smooth to me with touch of sweetness and tanginess that like. Would buy again.
Surprisingly smooth. Enjoyable on the rocks. Just slightly to sweet.
I'm kind of unsure between strong 7 and low 8. Is this really Captain Morgan? Absolutely different to whatever else provided by Captain. Must try for sure!
This one has taken me totally by surprise. I will admit to thinking that Capt Morgan was just a cheap mixer, until that is I came across this little beauty.Whats not to like about it:
A proper bottle with a proper cork,
Beautiful dark rum colour,
Aroma of all things rummy,
Super smooth with very little burn and a long lingering aftertaste.
If you haven’t tried this, I would suggest that in a blind tasting, as in “ pick out the Capt Morgan”, you would be very hard pressed to do so.
It compares for smoothness and taste with rums costing much more and dare I say it, from more established distilleries.
Do not insult this with anything other than ice/water.
Try, you won’t be disappointed.
Fór me it's very spicy, but i believe I will drink up to it . I will try it mixed with smthg
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.
I love how smooth this is. Easily my favorite Capt. Morgan, though I haven't had that many of them. It mixes really well with coke.
this is my preferred day to day rum , of course I do not drink every day .
this is a smooth rum its got a great aftertaste a bit sweet but not so much to be unpleasant.
I have a lot of shit rums for mixing in the house but this one has a special place.
I like to drink this one pure and as well is an a mix (if a feel like I need extra sweetness).
The Captain Morgan Private Stock is way different from the other rums of CM. It´s way sweeter and not as thin as the Original Spiced. There are some hints of vanilla,nut,caramell and even a little citrus. In my opinion way too good to waste in a cocktail. I would recommend it on the rocks or with a little bit of water.
This is very tasty. I recommend it on the rocks with a squeeze of lime.
I'm not going to write a long one here. I hope you like vanilla because Private Stock is a vanilla bomb of epic proportions. It's sweet with loads of sweet brown sugar and dark molasses notes. There is a but of a nutty goodness. I get lots of baking spice especially in the finish, mostly nutmeg and hint clove. Private stock is sweet spicy and easy to drink neat. I can see people mixing this but it's a waste. This is a sipper that tastes above it's price range.
This has been sitting on my shelf for some time now, buried in the back behind my growing collection of high-priced bottles. It’s Friday night and I rummaged through to find something to mix with cola to watch the hockey game with. I’m not generally fond of spiced rims, but the vanilla nose on this tweaked my interest. Tried a sip to test it before adding the dirty and was pleasantly surprised - enough so to forego the pollution. Smooth at the top with almost instant spice notes, and a long molasses and tropical fruit finish. Sweet enough to stand up to the mix, but drinkable on it’s own.
I'm no rum connoisseur but this is one Captain variety that can be easily drunk on the rocks. It's definitely sweet of vanilla and molasses, but only at the start, as it is later offset by other flavors with a bit more bite. Excuse me while I pour another.
Now this I found to be quite good. I'd probably call this the best of the rums I've tried (which, admittedly, are mainly Captain Morgan, Sailor Jerry, and Bacardi), or at least one of Captain Morgan's best rums.
Worth it, in my opinion.
