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.
A very smooth rum on the rocks. A sweet taste that is very good as well. There will be a bottle in my cabinet at home for sure.
This must be one of the best rums at this price range. Certainly sweet, lots of vanilla, but very easy to sip and put in a flask for an overnight backcountry trip. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an affordable tasty rum, it is much better than your standard captain!
When i just want a nice neat glass of Rum, this is my go to. It’s priced nicely, and can be dressed up too.
I could not enjoyed this spiced rum.
Too sweet, and too much spicy flavor for me.
My problem with this rum is that I can't really get all that much rum flavor. there is just too much spice for my palate. It's easy to drink and smooth. Decent in a rum and coke. It is very sweet and has a big, huge really, vanilla profile.
A bit sticky and spicy for me but an easy drinker for most.
I could even go so far as to say, thus far, this is one of my all time favorite rums. It's smooth, full and absolutely delicious.
Very nice . Smooth. Not overly sweet. Do not turn up your nose on this because it is a commercial product.
Wonderful flavors and appropriate for sipping, straight up or on the rocks. But also works well in some recipes to spice it up a bit. Also adds some nice flavors to my red sangria recipe.
Out of all Captains, this is, in my opinion, the only one to spend money on. Nonetheless, VERY sweet. Great OTR.
Private stock offers a more sophisticated “Morgan’s” taste to a classic recipe. The sweet notes taste almost as good as the bottle is to look at. This moderately priced bottle offers flavors and complexity similar to its higher priced competitors. Sip neat or on rocks and you can’t go wrong!
A smooth taste and good flavoured rum. One of my favorited for sipping.
Príjemná chuť aj vôňa. Natrafil som náhodou v jednom podniku.
CM does not disappoint. Afforded great tasting rum. You can spend a lot more money and get an inferior product. Ratings are opinions and yours is the only one that matters, but CM reserve is a safe buy.
This rum is a good standard for rum. I don't think it is special tasting just a good tasting standard rum. So it is better than most rums.
...for a Captain Morgan. You can sip or mix it, so go ahead and give it a try.
Surprisingly smooth. Enjoyable on the rocks. Just slightly to sweet.
Starting to see captain commercials again, what happened to the Kraken Commercials?Got this 6 month ago for retirement. was drinking Irish Whiskey. I like it.
Nose: Vanilla, caramel, pleasant, maybe a bit artificial.
Palate: sweet oak, aromatic but not very complex. Pretty smooth.
I never thought I would think of the captain as anything more than mediocre, a tasty mix with Coke. But then I tried this and I was blown away. I had never before tried a rum I enjoyed sipping straight. Always I had to force it down like it was gasoline. But this is sweet and has flavour like caramel with faint suggestions of cinnamon and nutmeg, but not overpowering like Spicebox.
It has a mild burn that warms all the way down. Like sitting in front of a roaring fire. I notice my rating is I think the only 10 and maybe some would consider the rating a travesty and consider me to have a naive palette, but if I'm honest I couldn't think of anything I would like to change about it, so for me it's a 10 just because of that. :)
I was actually impressed with this seeing as it’s a captain Morgan product. Pretty smooth sipping wise. Lots of upfront vanilla flavor.
This has been sitting on my shelf for some time now, buried in the back behind my growing collection of high-priced bottles. It’s Friday night and I rummaged through to find something to mix with cola to watch the hockey game with. I’m not generally fond of spiced rims, but the vanilla nose on this tweaked my interest. Tried a sip to test it before adding the dirty and was pleasantly surprised - enough so to forego the pollution. Smooth at the top with almost instant spice notes, and a long molasses and tropical fruit finish. Sweet enough to stand up to the mix, but drinkable on it’s own.
The drink ability is not what I expected when I first tried the private stock. It is surprisingly smooth. Goes great with a coke.
I got this on sale, apparently no one really buys it. Maybe it's the mix of the Captain name with the relatively higher price? It's not great stuff, I wouldn't even call it pretty good. But it was definitely better than average. I don't know how else to describe it than "like the regular Captain, but a little better."
For a massmarket rum, this is very good. Smooth and unoffensive with a depth not common to Captain Morgan products. Great as a mixer, particularly in blends where the rum is standing more on its own, and serviceable as a sipper. A good stable rum to have around.
