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.
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!!!!
As far as Captain Morgan rums go, this is the one I buy for myself (not for parties, cocktails or anything like that).
It's probably the only one I would drink neat, actually. This one and Oakheart are my 2 favorite "commercial rums"
Split 3/4 of a bottle of this with a friend in high school many moons ago. I remember it being only marginally smoother than the original Captain (my drink of choice in high school) although it had a higher alcohol percentage, and similar in flavor. In spite of drinking so much, the night ended just fine- the reason I haven't revisited this rum is that it was nothing memorable for the price.
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.
Private Stock used to be my go to rum. It mixed well with everything I threw at it. Coke, Sprite, Ginger Ale, Root-beer (with ice cream at times), and even the occasional Pepsi (I am not a Pepsi fan). I have only ever had two issues with this rum. First, the price. It is a good rum, I am just cheap. Second, it gave me heartburn. Not sure why though.
This is my favorite Captain Morgan to drink. I prefer to drink it with Coke. It was my first try at trying "better quality rums".
Go buy a bottle of Zaya Gran Reserva. If you want to lose your pants and start dancing on a roof, go get a bottle of the regular 100 proof Cap.
Captain Morgan Private Stock is a good starter rum for beginners. It helps one recognize the characteristics of a good rum and its weaknesses are easily apparent. It is not a true an aged rum like its more pricey companions on the top shelf but it is a good rum for sipping. It is sweet, smooth and with as strong taste of vanilla and slight molasses. With Rum and Coke being my prefered drink, i would Not recommend mixing this with coke but reserve it for sipping. Although its sweetness may become overwhelming after a while.
for the price i believe that it is pretty good. It has a sweetness to it that I enjoy. I drink it neat not well suited to mix with coke.
Tu uz citit nejaku chut kvalitnejsieho rumu .... V tejto cenovej kategorii ale existuju aj lepsie volby, kazdopadne verim ze niekomu moze sadnut uplne perfektne
Nice sipper with some ice.
Lot's of vanilla on the nose.
Really miss a bit of oak/wood in this rum, but what can you expect after only 2 years of aging.
