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.
Black strap molasses dominates both your nose and tongue , spicey , burnt treacle , no real authenticity in my opinion. Artificially forced , but in saying that makes a decent rum n coke , but only two then I'd had enough of it !
Good memories of Chitek Lake, SK with Dad and brothers. He loved the stuff so I'll say nothing bad about it.
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.
One of best among black types. Very strong flavour of burnt caramel with natural feeling. Smooth and mild in throat. Like it.
Not bad in a coke but not something Id sit and drink neat.
Nowadays there are better dark or spiced runs available, for. Similar price or slightly more expensive. In comparison, this one no longer seems authentic to the Navy tradition it markets itself on. The taste is a bit synthetic. Drinkable in mixed drinks but that's all. Don't give it as a present. Best would be to use what you have left for cooking and then upgrade.
I’m quite the fan of a hot chocolate and rum on a winter's night. I’d never dream of putting a decent rum in a hot drink so this is my go to. Its not as bad as some of the other cheap/entry level rums.
i like most dark rums and this is fine with coke and ice,you'll find it in most pubs in the uk.
Good for a drink in the pub with coke. Nothing more than that.
Bitter or Rum. Classic Navy rum, I don't love it but if you are a rum lover... you must taste it !
Durchschnitt zum mixen oder mit Coke. Süßlich oder spiced?
This rum is just that ok if you are somewhere and that is your choice then....well ok but not much else
and spiced. Overly done not a great navy rum. Supermarket own brand is comparable and often better
Really nice lower budget rum for cocktails. Nice with coke.
The reputation of this rum proceeded it so I avoided it for years. Tried it straight up recently and it lived up to it's critics, very harsh making it hard to even describe any flavour it might have. I can't imagine it being much better with a mixer and I will not be trying it.
Mixes very well with cola. Cheap and is a good mixer.
On a par with Captain Morgan's dark for me, which is not great. Sadly again money and the owners as well as the public have a lot to answer for. However both serve as something for beginners to try as both are not pricey and both not being hugely complex
A bitter Rum with little aged taste and feel to it. A very brown bag type Rum.
Typical heavy molasses dark rum. Top off a cocktail or drink it with coke.
A little too bitter, and not as nice as other standard house rums served at your average pub.
A poor rum and disappointingly prevalent. Wouldn't buy it in the shops although wouldn't send it back if served it in the pub
This is a good rum and one for someone who likes a smooth rum neat and not too strong
Strong, and good on a night out with the lads!
