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.
This is better than the regular captain morgan spiced rum, but that is not saying much. It is too syrupy sweet for my taste. You can do much better for the money.
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.
I'm sorry once a food or a drink is tasty, what else do you want? This rum has the taste of sweet pralines, the aroma of a toasted sugar cookie, it goes down smooth as milk, so to me it's at least an 8
Daca vrei sa descoperi romul, acesta este o alegere excelenta. Aroma puternica de vanilie care surprinde la inceput, poate un pic prea dulce dar servit cu gheata este o alegere perfecta mai ales atunci cand vrei sa impresionezi pe cineva care nu a mai incercat un rom de calitate .
It was the only rum I could find in Utah and was a big surprise from the first sip. Great flavor and smooth like more expensive sipping rums.
This was my go to rum for a very long time. I like the bite and sweetness. Black or Dark rums are where tastes lie, but I will always come back to this. It doesn't matter that that it is a commercial maker. If you like it, drink it.
While I rarely find a good sipping rum under $50, this one hits the mark. Will just say that my friends and neighbors often ask for this over their favorite bourbons, perhaps for the unique spices that accompany the bourbon cask aging.
Not terrible neat, but lately I've taken to mixing it with coke. The reg captain is good for that....so there are better options for a neat rum.
My go-to rum is usually Captain Morgan spiced on ice, but I decided to try this one for a change. What a difference. Very smooth with a sweet aftertaste that lingers. Will surely buy this again.
This rum has a lot of...everything! Spice, vanilla, oak, molasses. I appreciate a mainstream commercial brand trying to do something more sophisticated. But, the rum snob in me can't give it more than a 7. It's really a 6 but I'm giving this one a 7 based on effort and the fact that its the only enjoyable rum Captain Morgan makes.
This rum taste like anything but the rum. Taste might be surprising for anyone who expects another classic spice rum. Best served straight up in cold winter evenings. Update: originally scored 6, but have to reevaluate, this is definitely worth 7/10.
For $25 or $28 depending on where you buy it it's pretty nice over ice. The taste isn't anything that will blow you away but it's on the sweet side, if you like your rum sweet give this a shot.
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 is my wife's favorite go to rum. A terrific sipping rum but also her choice for mixed drinks. Even a simple rum and coke is enhanced by this one. A taste comparison one night when several of my colleagues were in attendance led me to rank this even higher than the 12 and 15 year old El Dorados on my shelf.
As long as you like vanilla that is. This one has a bit of a strong vanilla aroma and taste, but it is offset by a good blend of spice and sweetness. The burn is stronger than I would prefer, but is tolerable. Private Stock wouldn't be my first choice for sipping, but it mixes really well and the price is great.
To quote my father-in-law, this stuff is "nasty good". At about $23 a bottle, it is a good daily sipper. The "nasty" comes in with the spice and sweetness. A bit too much, but if you complained about the taste, and someone tried taking your glass away, you'd protest.
