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".
Recommendable to most
I like it more than the Chairman's Reserve Fogotton Cask in the same distillery.
Not too sweet and has banana, vanilla, caramel flover.
Overall, it feels like the rum of Barbados, but it has a refreshing flavor.
If it doesn't have that refreshing flavor, I'll be up one point.
The bottle is nice, but you can't drink it ;)
It smells like... i can't describe, haven't ever had before. The taste is very nice and smooth, the leaving long, but not complex enough for me, too woody? All in all good, not very good - and resembles me to whisky.
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.
Love this rum
Agree the bottle is beautiful
Some nice notes of sweetness and a very mild Smokey flavour that comes from the ageing
Would buy this anytime
Can’t get it in the US, but if you are in St. Lucia, definitely try it, and bring some home. This is the first thing I buy when I get to the island every year! Wonderful taste, very smooth, and awesome with a good cigar!
Un rhum avec une très belle couleur caramel, un nez avec une note sucrée et épicée. En bouche, c'est assez facile et assez peu complexe, avec une note de fruit confit (raisin, pruneau ?). La longueur en bouche est assez décevante. Pas de grande personnalité pour ce rhum qui est quand même assez consensuel car facile à boire et assez peu marqué sur l'alcool.
A rum with a beautiful caramel color, a nose with a sweet and spicy notes. In the mouth, it is quite easy and not very complex, with a note of dry fruits (grape, prune ?). The length in the mouth is quite disappointing and very short. No great personality for this rum that is still quite consensual because easy to drink and not very marked on alcohol.
