Lamb’s Navy Rum is a blend of Caribbean rums that are aged four years in whiskey and bourbon barrels.
The original Lamb's Navy rum recipe, created by Alfred Lamb, blended 18 different rums sourced from Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados and Guyana. Lamb began blending the rums in England in 1859 and references the British Royal Navy in its name.
A top class and long established Rum, excellent with black current juice, or, just add a touch of water. Highly recommended, never get a hangover in the morning and always keep me eye on the price.
A solid dark rum.
Sweet, smokey and lots of molasses flavours.
A firm family favourite from my great grandparents to me. Best served neat at room temperature, the only thing you need mix with this is more of the same.
full of flavour, nice and smooth definitely one for the Sailors :)
Strong, and good on a night out with the lads!
a drink my dad always used to have in the house, so i think it may be why i was so late in life to discover and fall in love with rum and its diversity.
the amber a hot toddy was designed for, almost by accident a common cold and an ex girlfriend bought me lambs... the cold went... the girlfriend went... the love for rum stayed!
I lived overseas for a couple of years in my youth and Lamb's and tonic was always a solid, dependable choice.
One of best among black types. Very strong flavour of burnt caramel with natural feeling. Smooth and mild in throat. Like it.
The high rating is probably more nostalgia than anything else, but pretty much everyone has to have a bottle of this lying around. Relatively cheap for a bucket full, mixes well with cola - and can be seen in most pubs, offy's and supermarkets. Growing up, it was the only rum I ever saw, so naturally its the first bottle of rum I ever bought for myself.
Loved the bottle shape ...some history there ...look it up ....anyway, for a NAVY rum ..VERY thick , molasses feature !! Had a wonderful evening in front of the fireplace in January !!!...Perfect for mixer !.....
Completely inoffensive, recommendable and affordable molassey dark rum. Drink with coke, not great straight.
This is a nice smooth rum with a nice sweet flavour but not too sweet. It is something I always get in pubs as it's easy and if I don't specify a rum that's the one they usually use.
A good basic dark rum, nice sweet flavour, but not overly so as some have suggested. Notes of Dark Chocolate and Coffee, a hint of spice and a lovely slightly burnt molasses taste. I enjoy sipping it neat. Amazing value for the price. Not in the league of Pussars or the more expensive, but a good everyday dark rum and the best of the budget Navy/Dark Rums I have tasted so far.
Decent rum best drunk with cola. Certainly not the best out there but perfectly acceptable. Maybe a bit sweet for some.
I sampled this on a night with my brother-in-law and found it quite drinkable, but also a bit non-descript. My regular mixing rum is Trawler and it has bags of flavour. However I found this one like a watered down version: it has mild notes of sweet, caramelised, brown sugar along with notes of molasses and toffee. At £15 a bottle this is well worth the price, it won't knock your favourite off its top spot, but it's a perfectly acceptable dark rum.
I have had a tot or two of this drink every year on my birthday since I was 16 thanks to my ex RN father. I have grown to appreciate the flavour but still find it a little too harsh for it to be classed as a rum I'd drink by choice. The smell is far nicer than the taste which often reminds me of burnt hair. A great drink to mix with Shrub in true Cornish style.
This is darker than my normal choices, but from the first nose, you realise it’s a solid old fashioned rum.
Just about smooth enough to sip over ice, but add a slice of lime, then coke and it comes into its own. One of the best for rum and coke.
Meer van verwacht, puur een oké rummetje, molasses en wat hout, maar zeer geschikt voor in een baco.
This is an OK rum that has stood the test of time. Not my favourite, but a good chaser after a cider or four.
Probably best enjoyed with a coke/Pepsi, I'd rather not spoil any drink like a rum or whisky with a coke.
velmi slušný rum za dobrou cenu. krásná barva, v chuti tmavá čokoláda.
Jak se na námořnický rum sluší, tak je ostřejší. Idealní na zahřátí.
Honestly I thought it would be as bad as Morgan's but it's not. Sweet with molasses and plum. Quite pleasant really.
There is nothing great about this rum, but for the price you can't knock it. My uncle who lives by the sea is a loyal lambs navy rum drinker. With some coke and ice you'll never look back.
I come from a long line of Navy men (and one woman!). Lamb's Navy was their rum, and thus became my first rum. A definite mixer, but not terrible. It holds a special place in my heart!
