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.
This has to be one of my all time favourite spiced rums
Quite a sweet taste, almost spiced. But a nice smooth drink with ice only.
It's the pricier of the Capt. Morgan branded spirits and for good reason. It's the better tasting ones. Has a strong flavor with a hearty burn. You'll swallow it down and feel just fine having another taste. As it stands this is my favorite of Morgan's Rums. For the price you could do a tad better as there are several flavorful cheaper brands. Yet if you want to stick with the name, the brand, the legend that can be found in every liquor store. Go For for the private stock.
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.
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.
For me it's a fantastic sipper. Lots of vanilla, barely any fire.
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.
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.
Surprisingly smooth. Enjoyable on the rocks. Just slightly to sweet.
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.
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!
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.
