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.
Spiced rum can definitely be a welcome break from the normal rum if you don't take yourself too seriously. They are great with coke but its hard to get to passed the general 'spiced rum' taste. This will change your mind though. It can definitely be drank neat and offers a lot more than just a 'smoother Captain Morgan'.
Like this one, specially for the price. 1671 and the Private Stock are same price locally. I enjoy both and try to keep on hand
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 would personally call/classify this a "flavored" AND a "spiced" rum, with its overpoweringly vanilla taste in its profile but that's the only reason I give this a 7 only, as I like it, myself. A "Christmas" rum, I'd call it, as it goes damn good in a glass/mug of egg-nog!!! I also like this with Coke, as it makes a nice rum and "vanilla coke" in just regular Coke. Like I said, taste is subjective to the individual, so while the Captain's Private Stock may not be for everyone, that's fine - I like it, myself, and that's what matters to me when I'm buying!
I enjoyed this rum quite a bit. Whether straight or mixed with cola it's a great sweet rum for the price. Probably one of the best captain Morgan rums I've had.
It seems to me that this one is on half way between rum and elixir. It is sweet and smooth, honey and orange tones with vanilla finish. I really liked it - place in my bar reserved.
Captain Morgan Private Stock is een gelimiteerde edite van het Jamaicaanse merk, een rum die vol lekkere en verleidelijke tonen zit. De fles opzich ziet er al prachtig uit maar wat deze Private Stock zo speciaal maakt is uiteraard de kostbare vloeistof die erin zit, een combinatie van kruiden, kwaliteitsrum en de expertise van Captain Morgan die leiden tot een product van ongekend niveau.
Bij opening van de fles vult de kamer zich met aantrekkelijke aroma’s van onder andere exotische kruiden en specerijen onderbouwd door tonen van vanille en kaneel. Het geheel eindigt in een lange en zijdezachte afdronk die de naam Captain Morgan waardig is, een aanrader!
I love sweet rums. So I expected to really like this one based on other people's reviews. It's definitely sweet and syrupy!
Notes of molasses, maple syrup, vanilla, and spice... this has all the flavors I like in a rum - except rum. It's a good drink for sure, but lacking in the rum department.
It's like kraken if kraken didn't suck. Not a smooth sipper, thick oily and sweet but gets way too much heat. I don't care for it that much because of the excessive amounts of molasses/brown sugar with vanilla. It makes a distinct diet coke and rum but I think there are better options. Especially for it's price (25$)
A pretty decent mixer especially with cola. Has a pretty heavy vanilla flavoring with hints of caramel, sort of makes cola taste like Vanilla Coke. Wouldn't drink it straight or on the rocks (although the label recommends it on the rocks!) but it's a good choice if you just want to pick up a relatively cheap commercial rum for mixing.
nice bottle and corked presentation... you can see they are aiming above the regular stock... but taste still needs refining ..doesnt beat sailor jerry on the taste front
If you don't like sickly sweet vanilla this wont be for you, but if your stuck at the in-laws over the holidays it might just get you by, barely. It is great for the price and availability.
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!!!!
