Harsh and unbalanced. An attempt at a Captain copycat that falls far short. Not worth it.

Great your open bar party with a lot of guests. not only because of the price but because of the flavor too. Again only a mixer.

This is genuinely better than Captain Morgan's (and the Black Patch is better than Sailor Jerry's), while being significantly cheaper. It's sweet, but not overmuch, and is nicely spiced with cinnamon and vanilla predominating, but not overmuch. It's balanced, and if drank straight, has none of the fusel booziness associated with cheap liquors.

This is the most pleasantly-surprising well liquor I've ever had - enough so that I asked the bartender what she was using and then picked up a fifth for $7.

As another reviewer aptly noted: 'If I were throwing a party with a lot of guests who really don’t care as long as the drinks are good, I would bring the Admiral to the bar by the gallon.'

I drink to that.

I'm a BJCP beer judge, not a spirits taster, so take it for what it's worth. I prefer scotch and rum, and dislike vodka, gin, tequila, and most liqueurs. I like mezcal, though.

Very simplistic flavor. Slightly sweet & powerful vanilla flavor. Overall crappy. You can do so much better than this. Don't bother.

Try it with milk. Just try it, if you need a mixer.

I used to drink Captain Morgan’s until I tried Admiral Nelson. It’s spicy and sweet and a heluva lot cheaper. I prefer mine with Pepsi, coke is too sweet.

If you handed this to me and told me it was supposed to be spiced I would tell you were lying. Too much burn for 70 proof, something I would expect from a 100 proof spirit. It's missing the spice and its a no go for me.

Great vanilla nose, decent spice flavor, but too much of an alcohol burn. Very much like rubbing alcohol. I would use only as a mixer.

Had a rum tasting on a sunny Saturday afternoon, because why not. Admiral Nelson's Spiced Rum bottle looks very cheap and low end. Awful artificial flavor burst followed with pure alcohol to the nose and palate. Very strong burn at the end. Better skip this one for your own sanity.

Can’t beat around the bush on this one, the Admiral is a cheap budget rum that has the look of a generic captain Morgan. That doesn’t make this a bad rum, I would actually put it in, or very close to, the same category as Captain Morgan, which is to say it isn’t great but neither is it terrible. Vanilla is very dominant in aroma and taste, sweet, not super smooth but goes down without too harsh an aftertaste. Definitely a mixer, I personally wouldn’t recommend drinking it neat. Half gallon usually runs between $15 and $20. Would be a good choice for a party or get together you wanted to keep on the cheap.
