The subject of this review, Captain Morgan Private Stock, is the company’s most premium spiced rum. According to the Captain Morgan Website, it is made from the finest of Captain Morgan’s reserves and married with a richer blend of mellow island spices than the regular Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. It is bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
