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".
This rum I had in St. Lucia at my resort. I brought back a bottle also from the distillery. This is not chill filtered at least for the St. Lucian bought bottles. I heard in St. Lucia that the rum blend is up to 14-16 years old now. The bottles I tasted said to be of that age had a heavy influence I felt from the Jack Daniels casks it is aged in. The rum actually tasted a bit like jack. Other than that very smooth and subtle, an easy sipper.
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.

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.
Taste = alcohol .... and ..... hmmm.....
Price/taste/quality is not OK. A nice rum but too expensive. The alcohol is to strong in taste - miss deepth and a bit more sweetness.
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.
I enjoyed this run whenever I went back to it.
Deep molasses taste but nothing special to keep me coming back too often.
The massive stopper/cork is really good but for some reason I didn't like the bottle (and the name is a little silly too).
Ended up polishing off the bottle over Christmas with ginger beer and it worked pretty well.
Enjoyed this the moment I got it for my latest birthday. Very smooth, with just enough hints of caramel, oak, and molasses. Straight up or with ginger ale. Worth the price.
Nose:not so distinctive,suppressed by alcohol
Tail: very strong,bourbon-like, tough-guy tail :)
If you like stronger, navy like rums...then try this one!
Rhum plus épicé se rapprochant du whisky. Peu d'aromes au nez mais se rattrappe bien en bouche. Arriere gout très plaisant.
When I first smelled this, I thought it would be a sweet rum AKA Zacapa (which I do like a lot), however I was wrong.
The first sip was indeed sweet, however then there was a nice alcohol burn. Nice oak and caramel taste.
Had quite high expectations for this one and it did not let me down.
There is no strong alcohol taste but after the sweetness has gone there is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. It gets tastier with time at the air and increased temperature.
Vanille boisée ... Belle tinte. Il est moelleux, tout en longueur.
Une vraie découverte. A profiter au coin d'un feu :-)
Habitué à des rhums nettement plus sucré, celui là se dénote par des arômes de bois et de vanilles mais reste très sec! Son originalité en fait un rhum d'exception. Le nez et la robe sont super eux aussi. Je le recommande vivement !
Nose is sweet and inviting. Lot of caramel impressions.
Taste is however completely different, semi dry, light and elegant... aftertaste is semi short. Somewhat comparable to Captain Bligh XO and Abbey 15
This is a weird glass, good but im confused! I think I will have another glass ;)
Had a bit of a Solera rum feel. Nice nose, with the alcohol smell fading with time. A nice sipper. Would not use with a cola!
Entre puissance et douceur, il se boit facilement sans pêcher par excès de sucre. De la vanille, de la noisette, des notes boisées. Un peu court en bouche mais le mélange est subtil et équilibré. Rapporté à ses 50€ c'est un excellent choix.
this rum is a 7, period. There are plenty better, but it's decent as a sipper. Not bad but there are better for cheaper
À $90 la bouteille, je m'attendais à un WOW! Mais il n'en est rien, puissant et sec sans être très sucré, on est loin d'un Vizcaya qui est dans la même braquette de prix, mais il faut cependant aimer le sucre! Je préfère un El Dorado 12 ans à cela et on est à $35!!
This rum has a nice dry spicy taste with just a little bit of burn. There is also a leathery smell and taste to it.
Un coup de cœur inexplicable.
Il a tout d'un grand, d'ou ma note peu etre un peu fanatique. Je l'adore surtout car le sucre n'est pas beaucoup présent et son bon gout de chêne ancien est parfait.
Flavour is fairly simple and but pleasant although I found this rum fairly harsh and more like a young rum than any 10 year+ rum Iv'e had.
