Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Admiral Rodney Extra Old rum is produced in St. Lucia using a continuous still, and then aged in American oak casks for an average of 12 years.
The rum is named after British Naval Officer Admiral George Rodney, who in 1782 as the Governor of St. Lucia rebuffed the Spanish fleet in the "Battle of the Saints".
Very smooth rum, but does the smooth thing without going all bland on you. Lots of subtle flavors, highly recommended. On the basis of its taste, it would be a 9.5, but what makes it a ten is that it comes in the coolest packaging in the rum world. It comes in an excellent box with a lot of historical info, and the bottle itself is so nice (particularly the cork), that it makes for a real showpiece on your mantle. Definitely one to get if you're traveling through the Caribbean.
My wife brought it back from St lucia and i love the it problem is that I can't find it in the states.......
best rum i have ever had. recommending it without reservations
Beautiful color, nice oily, very taste and smooth. Hints of vanilla caramel. Perfect Rum for sipping.
One of my favorites rum. I prefer drink it straight.

Au nez, ça sent le bois. En bouche, le gout de caramel et crème brûlée. C rhum assemblé entre du 7 ans et 12 ans lui donne une bonne complexité et une bonne longueur au final. Je l'adore, un peu cher, mais pour sa complexité et son gout unique, il vaut le coût.
I've been drinking rum for over 30 years and can honestly rate the old admiral the best. Not too sweet and nicely rounded bourbon barrel finish. Finding it in the U.S.,well, you would have a better chance meeting Santa Clause. Definitely worth the shipping price from the U.K.
Really. Our Crews Favorite since years. Well Done.
Great rum that you can drink on the rocks or straight. I went to the distillers and those guys know what they are doing.
Aromas of sweet mild oak, caramel, leather, vanilla, with an under notes of nutmeg & cloves. An initial taste of caramel, balanced by nut flavours and a woody texture. The finish is medium dry.
Excellent flavors and body, full of caramel without becoming too sweet. Nice after taste and long pleasant 'burn'
I always pick up a few bottles of this rum when I in St. Lucia. I find this rum best when served on the rocks or straight up. Never a disappointment. Smooth, mellow and the bottle disappears quickly.
Picked this up in St Lucia. Love it, great bottle, very tasty rum.
I love this elegantly balanced rum, that fits almost every occasion. 100% collum still with 0% added sugar. Rather complex despite no pot still has been used, in contrast to most other st. lucian rum.
The nose is remarkably sweet, considering the absence of sugar, with notes of oak, leather, brown sugar and vanilla. The taste will make any real rum lover happy, especially considering the price. In many ways it's comparable to rum like Flor de cana 25 or Appelton 21, and at a significantly lower price. On the slightly sweet palate refined notes of leather, sweet tobaco, brown sugar and prunes treats you good, before fading into lovely tingling oaky tones. A bloody keeper.
Nicely balanced between the oak and vanilla.
Buuun.. Un rom cu un gust bogat, plin și super rafinat. Un aftertaste spectaculos! Cred că doar "On the rocks"!
This is just a great rum. I guess it's the fact that it's 12 years and made in an area known for their rum.
a lovely smooth rum with a light spicy fruity after taste, nice sipper but I prefer with coke and ice.
I bought it in St. Marteen. Difficult to find, but a good candidate for my "active collection". Great product of St. Lucia and island with two Nobel prizes and this great rum.
Very smooth sipping rum.
Another rum that stands out for me in the top 3 so far is Admiral Rodney XO 12-Year from St. Lucia. I bought this before reading "rumdood"s review on it, but found out this is one of the ones that got him started on rum obsession.
This rum is aged in sherry casks for a portion of its maturation much like Brugal 1888, but I feel that it has a richer and deeper flavor than the Brugal 1888.
It comes in a beautiful stout bottle, one good for the boat! Feels very Nautical somehow.. looks good on a bookshelf! I buy this whenever I am able to get my hands on it.
The flavor is rich vanilla, brown sugar and spices.
Coloration is a deep dark amber, nice and thick.
The nose gives away the sherry cask maturation in a big way, but is also loaded with butter and spices. It makes an amazing hot buttered rum or eggnog, but sipping it straight is surely the way to go.
This rum has a nice golden-red amber colour with a complex (can't say of exactly what other than smoky sweetness) deep scent. It is smooth with a relatively mild flavour with a bit of sweetness and smoke.
Very very nice rum
