Great rum that you can drink on the rocks or straight. I went to the distillers and those guys know what they are doing.

I love the blend of oak, spice and fruit and the gentle burn from the alcohol. The one thing I would like this to have, is a fuller finish. While it is moderately long, it lacks a real punch. But a beautiful rum none the less.

Disclaimer: I love the Chairman's Reserve from St Lucia Distillers. So I was anxious to try their next-in-line offering. I found many of the same characteristics here - a wonderful color in the glass, a great variety of flavors in the mouth (though tending toward caramel/burnt-sugar), and a smooth cool finish. This rum is a pleasure to sip. However, the additional aging seems to remove the one thing that makes the Chairman's Reserve unique - it's foxy, grassy, au-naturale aroma. Call me a heathen, but given the price difference, I can't rate this higher than the Chairman.

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.

Une belle découverte. Nez boisé. Goût arc et long en bouche.

First time was on old plantation veranda in St Lucia, was one of the best rums they had. Enjoyed it with a nice cigar. Had it again recently wanting to relive the moment. Good rum 7.5 but not great.

I enjoyed this one. Super smooth and lots of caramel front and back.

Love this rum it's amazing when sipped and on the rocks it's worth every penny and I dared to try a bit with cola and its still amazing but I will only use it on the rocks to make my drink last longer as its so good. Will buy again and again

Very nice bottle with the massive wooden cork plug. It looks very unconventional.
The colour: dark amber
The smell: vanilla and caramel are dominant + a little bitter cocoa powder
The taste: It is rather drier rum. It could be similar to Kirk&Sweeney but the Admiral Rodney is a little smoother acc. to my opinion. The vanilla (ex bourbon), caramel and a certain wood is tasted on the palate.
The aftertaste is quite long.

I rate it with 8.
