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$)
This is my favorite Captain Morgan to drink. I prefer to drink it with Coke. It was my first try at trying "better quality rums".
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.
Captain Morgan Private Stock is a good starter rum for beginners. It helps one recognize the characteristics of a good rum and its weaknesses are easily apparent. It is not a true an aged rum like its more pricey companions on the top shelf but it is a good rum for sipping. It is sweet, smooth and with as strong taste of vanilla and slight molasses. With Rum and Coke being my prefered drink, i would Not recommend mixing this with coke but reserve it for sipping. Although its sweetness may become overwhelming after a while.
for the price i believe that it is pretty good. It has a sweetness to it that I enjoy. I drink it neat not well suited to mix with coke.
Tu uz citit nejaku chut kvalitnejsieho rumu .... V tejto cenovej kategorii ale existuju aj lepsie volby, kazdopadne verim ze niekomu moze sadnut uplne perfektne
nice with cola smoother than the normal and you can taste the difference.
It tastes like butter, which is never a negative in my book.
Have had a bottle for 6 years have tried it 4 time just not for me
Nice sipper with some ice.
Lot's of vanilla on the nose.
Really miss a bit of oak/wood in this rum, but what can you expect after only 2 years of aging.
I did find out that the bottled I bought in USA was produced in Puerto Rico and the bottle bought on Island was produced somewhere else! the taste was also different and I prefer the USA variant.
this is one of the best spiced rums i had really nice to mix with
Bedste Captain Morgan Rom jeg har smagt til dato.
Kan fint drikkes rent, men tror den ville være super i drinks.
Definitely better than the regular captain Morgan. But still too sweet and full of caramel. You can get much better rums at the same price.
Enjoyable when mixed with coke but certainly pricey for mixing.
this rum has a pretty sweet body which has a tipical captain morgan caramel taste. because of the price i haven't really expected more. a good and recommendable rum for every rookie who doesn't want to pay to much for a rum
This one is the only captain morgans rum worth buying.
Now this I found to be quite good. I'd probably call this the best of the rums I've tried (which, admittedly, are mainly Captain Morgan, Sailor Jerry, and Bacardi), or at least one of Captain Morgan's best rums.
Worth it, in my opinion.
es un ron de sabores fuertes, no de mucha complejidad, pasable con club soda y coca cola
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.
Smoothest out of the main rums from the captain but not anything to recommend to a real rum drinker
Jeg blander dog denne op med Cola, som den gør sig super fint til. Men kan også gå an som ren Rom.
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.
