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$)
surprenant, très bon rhum pour le prix belle saveur
One of my old time favourite. Smooth and sweet . Perfect by itself .
This is the first rum I ever purchased for sipping and I absolutely love it. Great smell and taste. It's even better neat than with Coke. I'm giving it a 9 because I don't have experience with other sipping wines yet. After a few more bottles, if I don't find anything better, I'll change my rating to a 10.
Great sipper and mixer. It is one of the best mid range rums you can buy.
This is the bottle that made me fall in love with rum. Previously, I had only tried the “run of the mill” mixer rums (Bacardi Silver, Sailor Jerry, Parrot Bay) and wasn’t a huge rum guy. This one changed it for me. Smooth, deliciously spiced, and just the right amount of kick. This is one of my favorite sippers but is still cheap enough to not feel too guilty using as a mixer. In my opinion, this is the perfect rum for someone looking to get into the finer side of the rum world without having to drop too much money. Would higly recommend to anybody.
I like this rum, it is not to sweet, with a taste of alcohol, as I like it.
This has been my go to sipper for many years.
A number of my friends and I are always on the lookout for a good/great rum. When we see a potential one we buy it and share it.
Seldom are these selections even equal to Private Stock, let alone better and any that have been as good have been far more expensive.
For my money, there just is not a better rum value available.
PS - It does not get a 10 only because, as with women, I think that 10's are a myth.
Taste 5/10. You can taste chocolate, artificial sweetness, some burn and little harassnes. Also you can feel small in age rum. Dont need same something more
just Captain Morgan say it all about quality.
The private stock is decent. But still a far cry from good rum. It is better than standard captain by a good degree but I still don't think I would drink it neat or on ice...which to me, is a signature of a truly good rum
First time I drank this rum, it was with cola and ice. I didn’t like it at all. Tried it again a year later over ice.... no cola and thought it was one of the best rums I had ever tasted. Don’t let the fairly low price fool you, this rum is by far the best bang for your buck I have ever tasted. Enjoying one now as I am making my comment.
If I buy Captain this is my go to. It's has a great rich rum flavor and can be mixed or drank on the rocks.
Nice vanilla aroma, sweet and smooth, no real harsh aftertaste to speak of. I prefer to drink it neat. Price is affordable, around $25 give or take, easy to find. Not my top pick but definitely one I keep on the shelf and reach for regularly.
Very smooth rum, goes amazingly well with Dr. Pepper if you need a chaser but easy to drink without one.
I was not expecting such a mass produced Captain Morgan product to be this good. If you're looking for something that you can find at almost any liquor store that can be your go-to rum when you can't find your favorite, I think this one is a really good choice. There's a lot of flavor packed in there, and the price isn't too bad either. It isn't my favorite rum, but I'm happy to pick this one up when I can't find one of my other usual choices.
Every time I don't know what to get I go for this one
I can drink this straight or with coke. Very smooth, solid choice for the price.
This is my go to rum whenever I need the feel to relax
I love it, sweet spiced rum, with a nice finish. It's better than regular Captain
I tried this for the first time a couple weeks ago and thought it was a smooth drink on the rocks. Although I would sooner spend my money on the Eldorado 12 they are both in the same price range but the Eldorado hands down a much better drink.
Nice and smooth, in case you do not like vanilla : hands off.
I really enjoy the vanilla flavour in this rum. On the rocks it becomes really smooth. Reasonable price is a big advantage of this rum.
This sweety vanilla soup is horrible. So dissapointed in this rum. Tastes like toothpaste with a strong mint and vanilla flavour. Smells the same.
À ce jour mon meilleur rhum épicé. Très bon rapport qualité/prix.
This is one of my favorites under $50 easily. As a matter of fact the best price is far off from what it is actually listed for in Louisville ($26.99) which makes it all that much better based in the price they charge. It hits high above a $27 rum.
