Proper dark stuff which makes you think of better times in the Royal Navy where they served this rum to the sailors prior to 1970! Will kill scurvy, weevils and all other nasty irritating pests!

Very good as long as you like the bigger kick (due to 54.5 volts it has). Ahoy!!!

A strong rum (at 55%). Not for beginners. Once the strong alcohol burn passed, notes of taste and wood. One of my favorites. Hard to find.

It's fine essence of navy rums, great for punch or grog.

At first on the nose and palate you get a spicy/peppery hit from the strong bitter molasses, but once it breathes a little it seems to get smoother, and then flavours separate a little and the complexity reaches its pinnacle with the notes of caramel, vanilla, and honey coming forth.

I tried straight and with a light splash of ginger, though I can imagine that the mainstream proof version would be more palatable for most as this one needs a little time and appreciation. For me, this one is a sipper with a ball of ice.

A bit on the strong side but add a splash of water or a cube of ice and this is a great rum.

The tobacco and chocolate flavors dominate this delicious rum. With some ice, this becomes a very good go-to sipping rum.

As an Ex Sailor this is my rum of choice for special occasions. Not one you could drink all night though.
