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.
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.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Bohatá vůně, plná, nasládlá. Vše v linii káva-kůže-čokoláda. (86 b)
Chuť: Kořenitě nasládlá. Zprvu tenčí, lehká, jemná chuť, ale postupně přechází do hřejivého koření, dřeva, čokolády, pralinek, se skořicovým dozvukem. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Od této značky jsem nic skvělého neočekával, navíc i kategorie spiced ve mně důvěru moc nebudí, o to větší bylo překvapení při ochutnávce. Litrovka pod šest stovek se jeví jako dobrý nákup.
Captain Morgan trying to break into the upper end of the market. Good , just not great.
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.
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.
My favorite rum to mix with coke. Very smooth and easy to drink.
After reading other reviews, I thought this would be better than Bacardi Ocho for sipping. This is totally disappointing for sipping! The Bacardi Ocho seems like a perfect 10 compared to this. The flavorings are overpowering. No smoothness at all. Each sip has a bite that makes me want to spit it out. Mixing it with my tea made it drinkable. Not worth the $22 I paid for it.
I know taste is very subjective. Kinda wondering how it got great reviews from many people. Maybe I’m just new to sipping my drinks.
Brought back from Cuba one time and wasn't disappointed.
Smooth a flavorful, mixes or straight on the rocks
Great Rum, spicy and mild. Delicious on the rocks!!!
This was drinkable and found in most stores but I wouldn't use it to try and make any impressions on anyone. It was acceptable, but I found it rather pedestrian and commonplace.
I was hoping for a Puerto Rican rum to mix Zombies with but this unpalatably sweet and spiced rum is not fit for drinking.
Beru ho jako startovací rum pro porovnávání. Dobře pitelný na víkendové akce.
After trying many types of CM-rum, I think this is the best. It’s one of my favourites, but not the all time best rum that I have tasted.
Helt klart en positiv överraskning. Härlig sötma.Lätt drucken
Better marinades are available for less expense. Would not even recommend as a mixer.
Comparing this to the original Captain, it is better but not by much. It is very sweet and it does have some vanilla and spices, but that’s about all. I won’t drink it straight and if I’m in the mood for a high end rum and coke I’ll drink it, but that’s really it.
Never really tried this Rum until about a year ago and it for sure is a go to for me. When I think of Captain Morgan I think of the commercialized version which is not a real representation. This is more like what I would call Rum. Hints of Vanilla and Caramel . A great addition to the liquor cabinet. You wont feel ashamed bringing this one out.
Even if that rum is maybe more a liquor than a real rum, its worth the price. Good enough to sip, but better in a Cuba libre.
Growing up, Capt'n -N- Coke was kind of a family favorite drink. I discovered this version a few years ago and haven't had a bottle of classic Capt'n since. While I've come to love many other rums, I will always keep a place in my heart, and my cabinet, for this classic. As always, I prefer my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
The medium mahogany colour looks like a fine aged rum but this would be wrong. Vanilla and brown sugar are what this rum is all about. It mixes with coke fine and can even be sipped but again, not much of an aged rum.
