Recommendable to most
I swear -- that's the aftertaste of this one!
Unfortunately it comes with quite a punch, being 59 % VOL (used to be 60%).
I use to let it air a bit to get rid of most of the fumes before enjoying it. If not, the alcohol vapor tends to be too strong.
But the rum raisin taste.. man!
Strong stuff, but it holds it well, with the kick not overwhelming you. Lots of caramel, toffee, oak and fruit. No wonder the British Navy loved it!
I like the taste but this is just a bit too strong for me (62% ABV). It is delightful if you drink it with some dark chocolate, but alone is very intense. Probably not recommended to first timers. I used it as a mixer (mainly with orange juice) and I found it lovely. But I prefer sippers, and I do not think this one is.
This is big on explosive flavours, complex but quite raw. Great with a touch of ice or water to draw out more flavours and knock some raw edges off
Not only does it share my own surname but without doubt real navy rum real strength with Real taste first tasted 30 plus yrs ago still best Demerara and best price 👍
First taste is molasse, wood and sugar cane very fast turning in bitter wood. Aftertaste is longer but very bitter. Higher alcohol is nicely highliting the taste.
A lovely, Navy strength dark rum. Its nice as a mixing rum, but it really comes into its own when it's taken neat with a small amount of water added. The colour is very dark brown and the tastes are molasses, burnt sugar, toasted caramel and vanilla. It's very easy to drink, but be warned: over indulgence will lead to an awful hangover.
Recommended, especially if you like a stronger drink.
Rich demerara sweetness and a pungent oakiness, Give a taste straight out of pirates of the caribbean! Delicous taste a fiery overproof burn for good measure.
