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".
Nice looking bottle and excellent taste. Little smoking but sweet and rich.
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.
En fin og elegant rom i duft og smag. Ikke den store volumen. Minder en del om 1931 82nd Anniversary Rum.
Je viens d'acheter ce rhum dont j'attendais beaucoup,
la bouteille est superbe, très élégante,
le nez est prometteur (belles odeurs de vanille, caramel,fruits secs)
en bouche ce rhum est doux, assez sucré mais il manque terriblement d'ampleur et d'arôme.
La finale est agréable avec un très léger goût de canne.
Au final ce rhum est trop faible, peut être trop subtil à mon goût.
Jeg var fornyligt til rom smagning med Masterblender Søren Beyer og dette var en af de rom han havde med, en dejlig blød rom med dejlig lang eftersmag, der var lidt hint af peber men alt i alt en dejlig rom.
nice pleasant sipping rum but not as many subtleties in flavors as the 1931
a lovely smooth rum with a light spicy fruity after taste, nice sipper but I prefer with coke and ice.
Très bon Rhum avec arôme vanillé et caramel ainsi qu'une touche boisée. Un peu trop sec au nez et au palet à mon goût...
Great looking bottle and excellent reviews. Once I had a chance to compare it to other St. Lucia Distillery rums, like 1931, I chose the lather.... not bad but definitely falls short.
Again, a rhum from Ste-Lucia. Beautiful bottle and cork, Nice Brown color, it is a heavy rum,
leaving good legs on the glass. Nose is sweet , caramel and vanilla, balanced, smooth. I had great expectations for this rum, fell a bit short.
Although a wee harsher than some rums of similar age, this is still a nice drink. I like the taste with cola, but not a big fan of it straight.....just a tad too much bite if on its own.
Super smag af bl.a creme brulée.
Lækker lang eftersmag.
Very nice oak aged rum

Very smooth sipping rum.
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.
As an novice, I'm starting to appreciate the intricacies of Rum tasting & the fact that one mans pleasure is another mans poison. I can see why this is a well thought of Rum, I just find it a little sharp, compared to my favorites, & thus it's not on my "to buy" list. That said, I also wouldn't turn down a glass as it's still nice!
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.
Smooth, but not too much, dry, good
Expected more out of this one, still pretty good.
Reçu en cadeau de fête, bien apprécié!
Received as a birthday gift, much appreciated!
Like it, because not to sweet for a molasse's rum !
smooth, well balanced
Very good nice aroma and smooth sipper taste of caramel and dried fruits
