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.
Tasty, but not quite great
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$)
Nice vanilla aroma, sweet and smooth, no real harsh aftertaste to speak of. I prefer to drink it neat. Price is affordable, around $25 give or take, easy to find. Not my top pick but definitely one I keep on the shelf and reach for regularly.
I was not expecting such a mass produced Captain Morgan product to be this good. If you're looking for something that you can find at almost any liquor store that can be your go-to rum when you can't find your favorite, I think this one is a really good choice. There's a lot of flavor packed in there, and the price isn't too bad either. It isn't my favorite rum, but I'm happy to pick this one up when I can't find one of my other usual choices.
I tried this for the first time a couple weeks ago and thought it was a smooth drink on the rocks. Although I would sooner spend my money on the Eldorado 12 they are both in the same price range but the Eldorado hands down a much better drink.
I really enjoy the vanilla flavour in this rum. On the rocks it becomes really smooth. Reasonable price is a big advantage of this rum.
