I was hesitant to try it. You look at the bottom of the rankings here and it dominated by Captain Morgan. “Terrible rum, bought it for the bottle.”

I took the risk and picked up a bottle. Glad I did. Very strong vanilla taste with only a slight aftertaste. While I don’t think it as good as some people claim, it is pretty good. Bang for the buck, absolutely!

Punches above its weight class for price. At the end of the day it’s spiced rum, but it’s certainly a league above your standard captain. Stick it in the freezer and it thickens up a bit and is a real treat with dessert.

I really wanted to like this rum, I really did.

The vanilla is strong to the point of being cloying. The after taste is sour.

Just not good.

Captain Morgan’s intention was to make a sipping room, but they overdid the sweetness a bit on this one in my opinion. However, I consider this an amazing way to upgrade a rum and Coke 2 ounces of this on the rocks with Coke and a squeeze of lime is absolute heaven.

It's smooth, very tasty on the rocks and readily available. For some overly sweet, but I enjoy it.

Captain Morgan Private Stock is a pretty good rum. It have notes of candy and vanilla. This rum is very sweet, almost like a vanilla ice cream. In my opinion I'd say it's a pretty ok sipping rum over the rocks or in a rum and coke if you like malty drinks or sweet drinks.

I don't think I'm ashamed to admit that this was my first sipping rum, it just is what it is.

Here's my breakdown:

Presentation: The bottle isn't tall and cylindrical, so that's a plus. The fake cork leaves something to be desired. For it's age, I don't trust the color. I'm sure there's a bunch of caramel added back in.

Nose: Overwhelmingly super-sweet vanilla. Not an unpleasant artificial vanilla, but it definitely overpowers everything else. There are some other notes to detect, like warm brown sugar, maybe baking spices, some oak, but good luck finding them behind the vanilla.

Taste: Extremely comparable to the nose. The sugar and vanilla hide anything that could be construed as offensive, but they also take any complexity right with them.

Value: It's cheap, and should be.

Conclusion: Now that I've tried better, this is going to be retired as a mixer.
