Nice kick in the throat. Usually drunk at private splice mainbrace among friends, not one to be wasted.

When it comes to dark rums full of treacle, toffee, fudge flavours. It tastes great straight, with notes of oak amongst the rich, thick flavours. Mixes well with cola, lemonade, or in a grog. This kinda rum is fantastic to cook with too, whether its for ice cream, cakes, butter cream etc. Just remember that this is at full navy strength which is 56%, underestimate that and you will be flat on your ass.

*Update*
After having a bottle (new bottle) I am sure the recipe is still the same, but I was able to get a side by side comparison with Skipper, OVD, and Goslings and I would now rate these rums ins this order (Skipper, Goslings BS, OVD, Woods, Lambs, in that order

It's a smoother rum than lambs but it must be left to rest in coke as the flavour goes really smooth like velvet... Lovely rum with coke never going be a rum for the rocks or straight up

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.

Der Woods ist besser als der kanadische Lambs. Der Geschmack ist runder und schlüssiger als der Lambs
