Is it better than Captain Morgan? No, but it is half the price. It was there so I tried it.

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.

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.

I agree with what others have said about the very strong and pronounced taste and scent of vanilla in this rum. For me, this really isn't a problem as I happen to love almost anything vanilla, but to someone who dislikes this flavor, this is definitely a product to avoid. Also, it isn't really that impressive to drink on its own. As a mixer, it does a great job, and for a cheaper price than the over-rated Captain will. But, really, nothing too much here. All in all, a decent rum if you're on a budget, but don't expect anything amazing.

Most definitely beats captain. Affordable rum for mixing beverages. Thumbs up from me

This is the best bang for your buck in terms of rum. It's cheap and very tolerable.

For mixing into beverages this rum is perfect. Save the money on captain, go here.

Admiral is a higher rank than captain, but in the sea of rum, it's a different story. If you're throwing a party, the admiral will do fine, six drinks in and nobody will remember their own names let alone what brand of rum you picked up. But for gatherings that involve a higher class of people than your local frat house, go with Captain.

I started drinking this in the Marines when my paycheck didn't allow for Sailor Jerry. Pretty good bang for the buck, works good in a pinch, and I have had much worse!

Admiral Nelson "Spiced" Rum is a rather bland rum. Don't get me wrong. This stuff is very smooth and easy to drink. Sweet but not too sweet. It's completely unoffensive in any way. But that is the problem too. The flavor is weak. There is not much going on besides a little vanilla. It's quite easy to sip and goes great in cola. But it doesn't add much either. Heaven Hill done a much better job with their Blackheart than this. But it's super cheap and very smooth. But if Captain Morgan is overload for you give this a try. At this price you can't lose.

This is a low 7 high 6 but its price makes it unbeatable.
So whenever I see this bottle its on the bottom shelf even below Bacardi and captain so I always steered way away from it. But I honestly was pretty wrong. First I got the glass bottle because I heard plastic can alter the taste slightly. Opening it I was pleasantly surprised, it actually smells really good. No overpowering alcohol smell. Vanilla with some spice and sweetness of fruit . Looking at the color is about the same of bacardi gold. So I was expecting it to be harsh. It wasnt when sipping neat, its a pretty basic rum taste wise, it tasted like a more perfect captain morgan with better natural flavors. It actually makes a really good rum and coke, nothing bold that will knock your socks off but as a general rum and coke its really good. Hints of vanilla, sugar cane and cherry with no alcohol taste. If you are looking for a good buy this is by far it, very pleased and sorry I avoided this for such a long time!
