Go buy a bottle of Zaya Gran Reserva. If you want to lose your pants and start dancing on a roof, go get a bottle of the regular 100 proof Cap.

It didn't do it for me, neither does any captain Morgan products... This tasted pretty good with Coke or vanilla Coke and some wings. At this point, it's about how much your gonna drink to make it ok that your team just loss again 17 wins in 5 years!!!

There are so many mixed reviews on this one, so I had to try the top rated one from The Captain since their 1671 was long gone before I could try it. As you can tell, I am now running out of rums to try that are easily available and priced sensibly. I knew before I plunked down $26 for this bottle that it was a sugar bomb with 45 grams per liter of added sugars and other things. God knows what, but it screams artificial. All I can taste is pepper, vanilla, and strange chemicals. This will give you one king hell of a hangover the next day if you drink more than one small glass. I am not about to try because I know what will happen based up my knowledge of added sugars. This one is just too much. But to new rum drinkers, it may just taste good because it takes a few years to graduate from ice cream and snow cones full of syrup.

To give you an idea, as of this writing, the top 12 most popular rums on this site all have 20 grams per liter of added sugar or more except for Havana Club 7 from Cuba that is not available in the USA. Interesting find! Most new rum drinkers are attracted to those sweet rums and sugar bombs. How does one break that cycle and work their way down to dry rums with only 0-9 gpl of added sugar.? Drink LOTS of this stuff in one night!!!! Suffer like hell the next day!!!! Then you will be looking up semi-dry rums (with only 10-19 gpl of added sugar) and most of those will not make you sick the next day.

Update 11 days later: As usual with any new rum, I only take one sample for the rating and then leave the bottle sit for months unless it is really good. This one had all the makings of eventually going down the drain despite my generous rating of 5. I poured some on the rocks and it is at least tolerable to drink. There are also a lot of rums that are worse than this one that I have ranked even lower in my "cabinet". Since this is the best from the Captain, I now change their name to Captain Crap! Of the two other mass producers of rum, both Bacardi and Cruzan each have 5 rums that I have rated better than this one.

Youngsters, do yourself a favor and bid anything by The Captain farewell and shove his ass out to sea without a paddle!!! It is now time for you to move on to MUCH better rums!

I was out of state and found a liquor store with limited selection. I didn't care for the standard Captain Morgan but I thought this might be better. To my taste is isn't. Another flavor I didn't care for without the smoothness of an aged rum. I don't see any more spiced rum in my future. My normal drink is aged rum on the rocks and I'm sticking with that. I don't consider myself a connoisseur but I can tell what I like and this was it.

This sweety vanilla soup is horrible. So dissapointed in this rum. Tastes like toothpaste with a strong mint and vanilla flavour. Smells the same.

I was unable to get to my usual specialty store to pick up some Doorly's XO--my preferred general-purpose rum--and my supermarket only has a tiny rum selection (they don't even stock Plantation). I bought this not realizing it was spiced, as it doesn't clearly say that on the label. There's nothing wrong with a vanilla Coke--I'm old enough that I used to order flavored Cokes at drive-In burger joints in my teen years--but that's all this stuff is good for IMO, mixing with Coke. The vanilla and sweetness are pretty overpowering. It's smooth and sippable by itself but this is not really rum, it's a liqueur.

Encouraged by many positive comments, stating mostly that Private Stock is 'underrated', I decided to give it a go - unfortunately I must have missed what others see in this spirit, that makes it worth recommendation.
It is definitely different from other products of CM brand, in a positive way. You can smell and taste and actual rum, despite being spiced. However, it is build upon an overwhelming sweetness/vanilla; first sip was a pleasant surprise, however couple of sips later the whole experience turned into failure, when I realized I would not be able to try another glass. It's like you want to feel the rum itself, but vanilla keeps squeezing your stomach saying 'not this time, amigo'.

I don't think I will buy another bottle and definitely I do not recommend it to anyone.

I've been generally sticking to the middle shelf of spiced and dark rums at my local
Stores, thought I would go up a shelf for $10 more. Didn't experience what I wanted, I was hoping for a 1671 flavour but not even close. Too much of a lemon citrus taste that hangs on all the way to the aftertaste. Didn't like it straight with cola or ginger beer. Just not for me.
