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$)
This one is the only captain morgans rum worth buying.
Now this I found to be quite good. I'd probably call this the best of the rums I've tried (which, admittedly, are mainly Captain Morgan, Sailor Jerry, and Bacardi), or at least one of Captain Morgan's best rums.
Worth it, in my opinion.
es un ron de sabores fuertes, no de mucha complejidad, pasable con club soda y coca cola
at first: its not aged, do not expect something sophisticated, on the contrary its light taste of alcohol, sweet and spicy taste. Something easy to start with, cheap, you can make lots of experiments with it, also great with coke. Unlike other Morgan´s this one is worth buying. Keep in mind, that for about 30$ 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.
Ein feiner Rum fürs Geld. Schön on the rocks. Mit nem hauch von Vanille?
Pretty decent at this price. Would have it again. Nice
smooth. no after taste. best of Captain Morgan brand.
This rum has typical Captain Morgan notes with a hint of vanilla and oak flavor. Not the best but worth the value
If this is the same as Capt. Reserve this is my favorite. The bottle shape is exactly the same. It is the most expensive Capt. although very affordable. I like mixing or drinking over ice.
This is better than the regular captain morgan spiced rum, but that is not saying much. It is too syrupy sweet for my taste. You can do much better for the money.
For the price, this is a decent rum. By far the best choice from the Captains lines. Love it with coke zero. Definitely get the spice, but it has a sweetness that lends itself to good mixing. Color and aroma are good. Overall, a good rum, just not great
good spiced mixer
Pretty good sipping. Good mixed with coke. Nice light amber color in the glass. Nice flavor, no afterburn.
After trying this weekend I really enjoyed it.
For me it's a fantastic sipper. Lots of vanilla, barely any fire.
If you're going to go Captain, this smoother version is the way to go.
I always like regular Capt n Coke but when I started sipping this with ice one day that was it I was hooked. It does come off with a stronger vanilla flavor. But with ice it smooths it out and I still enjoy it to this day.
