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.
Tasty, but not quite great
at first: its not aged, do not expect something sophisticated, on the contrary its light taste of alcohol, sweet and spicy taste. Something easy to start with, cheap, you can make lots of experiments with it, also great with coke. Unlike other Morgan´s this one is worth buying. Keep in mind, that for about 30$ you get 1L bottle, not 0,7, which gives goot performance ratio. On the other side, for the same price youre opening level of aged 8-12y aged rums. Still, day to day rum.
this is my preferred day to day rum , of course I do not drink every day .
this is a smooth rum its got a great aftertaste a bit sweet but not so much to be unpleasant.
I was skeptical when I purchased this rum as Captain Morgan is not usually associated with high quality rums.
In terms of presentation, the bottle itself is quite interesting. The rum itself is very sweet and you can certainly taste vanilla. It is also quite smooth and can be drank straight.
Not sure if I would purchase it again as there may be better rums at this price point.
I will give this rum some credit as it was the one that got me interested in better rums, and when I first tried it I liked it. After having many many far better rums in the same price range, I cannot in any way recommend it. Even Bacardi 8 year at roughly the same price blows it away, and I don't even recommend that one because there is so much better at the same price.
