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.

By far, my favorite rum! Every few months I make sure to grab another top-shelf brand and have yet to find anything as smooth, spicy, and perfectly sweet as Private Stock. Reading the other reviews, it almost seems like people simply refuse to rate this highly because it's not aged (and expensive), and Captain is known for mixing... stop letting the money you spend influence your opinion of something. No, I'm not 18 and just started drinking, and I'm well aware of how people like to make claims of "complexity" in flavors to justify the high price tags... I also enjoy a nice robust cigar from time to time with some nice brandy or cognac, so I get the draw to certain really strong developed flavors.

But I also understand the psychology behind giving a product a higher (or lower) rating based on the price tag of the item, and I think that's what's going on here... There are some aged rums that have average ratings at 9 or higher, with their less-aged counterparts scored one point lower. the truth is, it's rare to find a single point of difference in aging something 10 more years. Sure, more age can make it smoother and a little more refined, but in all my personal taste testing I've rarely found something that costs twice as much that was actually 10% better... Really old rum that tastes like crap, is just "really old rum that tastes like crap" that you just spent a lot of money on and feel the need to justify the expense. This is GREAT rum, and it's affordable. Excellent for sipping neat, or on the rocks... for something a bit different, put it in your snifter and light it on fire to heat it up a bit! (maybe 10 seconds).

All that said, I am well aware that individual taste preference is a matter of qualia. My point is... This is by far the smoothest, best tasting top-shelf rum I've had to date (out of about 20 diff top-shelf options). don;t let "price" influence your review.

Seductive scents of banana, vanilla, nuts and spices fills my nostrills with delight.
Spice and sweet molasses hits the pallate and surprices me with an unexpected roundness.
Always considered the captain to be a mixer but this one is a great sipper.

This rum is hard to beat for the price and availability. You can find it pretty much anywhere. Sure it isn't aged for 50 years and all fancy pants. Its smooth, sweet flavor is still awesome!

This is a nice rum you can drink straight or pollute with soda or juice. It's worth every penny and I love it!

This has been a staple at my house for years as a decently-priced mixing rum. Sweet, spicy, and rich, can be used in any recipe that calls for a spiced rum. Its the only CM product i've bought for several years; the small price difference between this and regular Captain Morgan is an easy choice for me, noticeably better spiced rum, for only a few more dollars. Winner!

Are there better Rums....yeah. Are there better Rums for $22....not really.
This was the first rum I enjoyed straight when just starting out. For the price its really hard to beat. Very drinkable and good for mixing also. I do not however like any other Captain products. I still keep an extra 1.75 around for guest as it generally keeps them away from my more pricey stock...
