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.
Shiver me timbers this be a sweet rum! Aye, I've called out Bumbu Original for being a dessert rum, but this be far sweeter, maties. She smells wonderful and tastes just as sweet. Vanilla, spices, easy burn, rich body. Pure candy that be great for sipping... and your mates who are new to rum... and plunderin' with your mates who are new to rum... arrgh!
Picked this up due to all the raving reviews on here and was not disappointed. Intense vanilla and spice flavors keeps you coming back for more and more. What a good sipper. Will definitely always have a bottle handy from now on
This is my favorite rum by a landslide. It's affordable, complex, and smooth. It tastes great, probably due to the 2.5g of sugar per 1.5oz shot. It's sweet, spicy, and rich. It goes down smooth and leaves a nice aftertaste. Definitely worth trying out!
I was pretty much surprised how good is this rum. Actually it is nice for sipping and mixing too. It's not very complex or special taste but it's nice simple and straight drink. Considering the price it is one of best rums considering value/satisfaction ratio.
All the hype with very little on delivery. I found the rum to be sweet with vanilla and spice flavors. I was disappointed however it is a good rum to serve when entertaining.
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.
