Recommendable to most
As others have said this needs to breath to get the best from it.
Notes of oak, liquorice and molasses.
I have heard from several old salts that despite what the makers of pussers will tell you, this rum is far more like the stuff the Royal Navy was issued till 1970.
Enjoy with coke or straight as a slow sipper which lets you enjoy the oak.
The secret to enjoying this rum is letting it breath... Let it sit for a while in some ice, and then again once you mix it (with Cola or Ginger Beer). This allows you to better taste the molasses, which is the best part of a Dark/Navy rum. Not too sweet, and with 57% alcohol content, it's amazing there's no burn or 'airplane fuel' smell/taste experienced with over-proof rums.
This rum took me by surprise. Enjoyed it with coke and kept going back. Thick and dark. It packed a punch but was a lot smoother than a lambs navy. Enjoyed this one.
As with most navy rums its not very smooth and packs a punch but Wood's does have a good flavour that comes through harsh volume.
Based rum. Not bad but not very complex. Better than Lambs though
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!
