Proof66 Notes

Where Captain Morgan Spiced rum is their flagship concoction and market leader blended sweet and spices in a rum drink for color and complexity, the Captain Morgan Private Stock is a more up-scale / complex and less sweet version of their spiced rum meant for sipping rather than mixing. It is aged for at least 2 years in ex-bourbon barrels, which we presume is longer than the flagship expression and will give the rum more highlights of oak-driven vanilla and caramel.

Captain Morgan is the spiced rum you can find everywhere.

I'm by no means a rum expert and feel like I'm being a little unfair, but for a supposed sipper, this stuff is just too sweet for my taste. Makes a passable rum old fashioned if you go heavy on the bitters. I think going forward, I'll stick to CMB or Kraken.

I tried this after a dram of Devil's Cut; wow this is sweet stuff. Both the nose and palate are thick with vanilla and honey sweetness. There's a hint of cinnamon in the flavor profile, but not enough to balance the cloying sweetness. I tried it neat, but the label on the bottle suggests having it on the rocks. Perhaps they're right because that vanilla and honey need to be cut down a little bit. Overall I enjoyed the pour and I think it's worth the price increase over the standard Captain.

Far and away better than regular captain, with some very strong vanilla notes. A little too sweet for sipping straight in my opinion, but great as a mixer. If you are a fan of Captain Morgan it's worth getting a bottle to try it out, but whether it's worth almost double the cost (in my area) is something you have to decide yourself.

I couldnt believe how much better this rum was than regular Captain, there is honestly no comparison. Perfect neat, definite hints of vanilla and spice.

(3 out of 5). For what it's worth, the best Captain Morgan has to offer. It's easy to hate on the brand, but this along with the black spiced rum really aren't bad. Much more palatable than the regular Captain, with sweet vanilla taking center stage, and though it's 80 proof to the standard Captain's 70, it's smoother. Is it something I keep around? Frankly, no, but it's worth trying. $20 or so in my area.

A decent rum for the price and for people who aren't into higher priced, more complex drinks. Overall I prefer this room temperature versus cold, just brings out more pleasing spices for me. I only drink this straight as I'm not a fan of mixers, but I can only assume it'd go lovely with cola. For the extra $5, buy this over the standard CM. Nothing special here, but better than most.

One of my personal favorites next to Kilo Kai. In my opinion its best served on the rocks with a slice of lime. This stuff is dangerous.

Very smooth rum. Strong vanilla flavor. Can be used as a mixer, but I sip it neat or on the rocks. awesome wood top/cork bottle! Not much more expensive than standard captain, 5-6 dollars more is well worth it

Yum. Has a slight scent and taste of vanilla. Goes down smooth with a nice after taste. Enjoy sipping it neatly.

Probably the best mixer with cola if you like vanilla cokes. Pretty easy to drink on the rocks as well.

This stuff is awesome. You can smell the vanilla as soon as you open the bottle, and you can definitely taste it. This stuff is pretty smooth for 80 proof, and makes a fantasic Captain and Coke. This now has a permanent place in my home bar. If I ever decide to become a full blown alcoholic, this will be one of my first stops.

Although much better than the standard Captain Morgan spiced rum, it's not my favorite spiced rum to use in mixing cocktails calling for spiced rum. I do enjoy using it as the base spirit in a Cable Car, which is a Sidecar using spiced rum instead of cognac and sometimes rimmed with cinnamon/sugar mix. The sweetness in the Private Stock is definitely more pronounced over their standard bottle.
