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.
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$)
Ok this rum is what it is and I think the flavor is very nice and enjoyable. The ole Captain won Lots of Vanilla, sweet and very enjoyable. The Private Stock would be served well on ice cream. I served this at a blind rum tasting of around 25 rums. Now given that only a few guys know anything about rum everyone consistently gave it a 8-9 out of 10. I scored it a 7 but it is a good 7.5. Excellent priced tasty rum.. Can go as a high end Rum and Coke if yur shy with neat..
They didn't even try with this one. Someone poured a large bag of sugar into a barrel of semi-aged bulk rum, added some vanilla and baking spices, and called it private stock.
The stuff tastes like acid reflux. I would actually serve it to my worst enemy because, who else?
The amount of vanilla overwhelms anything else that might be an asset. Regular Capt. is a better product.
edited to add sugar test results- 45g
Sugar: 45- 50 gpl. Not much to say about this but if you read the label you will see that there is a lot of sugar added to this rum to where it is close to being a desert rum. It's got a bit of vanilla and caramel and spice in it and overall I would say that it's agreeable to those that don't like rum without cola. Don't mix this with anything sweet. I suggest that you put it on ice, or on ice cream. It's a good value rum, but I like a little or a lot more taste.
This rum is strait vanilla. Not good on its own but tastes good as a mixer with coke. Probably wouldn’t buy again unless to give to friends to mix at a party.
This was my first "starter" before moving up. I have not had this in years and it is not a bad rum there are just better ones out there. It has a vanilla, coffee and cocoa taste but it is super dry. Has a little spice taste, like hot spice taste and that can take away from it. Overall not bad for mixing, but there are far better options for the price.
However, when compared to the rum admiralty its rank as captain is deserved. Don't get me wrong, this is a quality rum. Easy to drink too. I like sweet rums but this one might be edging into too sweet territory. Lacks the alcohol bite that very fine rums incorporate without losing smoothness or balance. I like it, but it simply cannot sail along side the elite rums out there.
I find myself reaching for this Over many more expensive rums. I really like spiced rums, but this rum Is particularly tasty. It’s got really nice caramel flavours.
I’ve started giving it some time to breathe and noticed a big difference. After about 10 minutes any harsh notes were gone and I really enjoy what’s left.
For the price, this is a great Rum. It is always available in every liquor store I have been in and the price is always within reach. You can drink it str8 or mixed with soda and either way it works well.
Ein Literpreis von 30€ und man bekommt einen gefälligen und süßen Rum.
Die Flasche sieht nett aus und man kann ihn auch Neulingen anbieten.
Hier ist der Zuckergehalt mit 45 Gramm pro Liter ähnlich hoch wie bei den Premium-Rums der 100 € Klasse.
Aber es wird nicht damit gelogen das der süße Geschmack einer 30jährigen Fasslagerung entstammt. Das finde ich zumindest in Ansätzen ehrenwert.
es un buen ron , complejo no muy alcoholico , lo refiero con un hielo, los sabores muy balanceados , se nota la vainilla, color acaramelado justo, lo volvere a comprar
Intense to the nose and pleasant but seems artificial and sugary. +1 for disclosing ingredients.

Notes of leather, Tobacco, Vanilla, and citrus in the Nose and taste. I like this Rum even with the Bite. It mixes well with a Coke, but I’ve found the cheaper sodas actually work better as a mixer. Try Faygo Cola, it less sweet than Coke and Pepsi and let’s more of the Run flavors come through without burying them. While it’s not quite a sipping Rum, it would do if that’s your budget as it’s above it’s price point in flavor. Ok, I’m going to give another evaluation here. It’s been about 6 months since I first tried this, sipping some as I write and will change that it is indeed a sipping Rum. It still had a little bite compared to other Rums, but sometimes I like my Rum or Whiskey to have that bite and burn. The burn is very mild and it’s still as sweet as my first try. Get a bottle today as it’s less than $25.00 almost everywhere and worth more in my opinion.
Velké překvapení, vůně sladší, tropické ovoce a koření, chuť jemná, sladká, koření, med a pomeranč, konec ostřejší, velmi chutný
Honestly, this rum achieves what it was intended to do-- be a better version of regular Captain Morgan, while still being accessible to the Captain audience.
It's a solid enough rum to drink by itself, if that's your style. The spices make it pretty easy to stomach, though they don't give it the more mature flavors of an aged rum. Over ice, there's certainly nothing wrong with the rum.
Likewise, it's not a rum that's so special that you'll consider it to be unmixable. Rather, this rum is a great choice for mixed drinks. I preferred it in coke over a dark and stormy, but it was quite good in both, and I certainly didn't feel guilty about enjoying it in any other way than it's purest form.
For the price point, you can do better, and you can definitely do worse. As long as you don't go into this rum expecting something that it's not, you won't be disappointed.
