I got this as bday gift and was looking forward to taste it as the low local availability and price tag implied that this should be some extra ordinary stuff. I must honestly say it isnt. Dont get me wrong, its a great rum, nice sipper, smells fruity, vanilla like with just a little alcohol. However, the taste is too much liquor-ish with lots of orange flavors. Reminds me from far far away of Don Papa and Pyrat (although different in general but rum tasters will get me for sure). Quite a lot alcohol and afterburn. I had few glasses, one also with chocolate, one with cigar, and although it was a nice experience I am not planning on buying this one. Maybe I try it in the future, I am quite interested in others in HMS family

Nose: Strong and spicy, maybe also some raisins and some molasses.
Palate: Warm and spicy, the spicy taste lasts for quite a while on the tongue. Nice.
But I miss some more „body“, it feels very „liquid“.

Lets start off with the design: it looks amazing! Nice bottle, interesting backstory and great colour of the drink itself.

The smell is not very prominent but there are some fruity elements in there to discover. Then the taste: again not very outspoken from the start but very, very smooth, without any too predominant sweetness or alcohol taste. Realy elegant and enjoyable. The aftertaste is spicy and has a nice duration. Remote but present burn, just the way I like it. Watch out, because this will be flying out of your glass! Cheers!

I did a tasting of all their rums while at St Lucia, this was my favorite rum on the entire island. I would call this a honest rum aficionados libation. Very nice balance of flavors, with a slight hint of sweetness but you will have to look for it on the finish. Well worth the money spent. $60

40% ABV (so we are setting our expectations low). 7–12 years ex-bourbon. Less fruity than the Princessa, less aggressive than the Formidable and 1979. Pretty solid bourbon-aged column-still rum. A good step above the standard offering. 8-

I tried the youngest of these three HMS rums from St. Lucia yesterday and figured that the next one up would be even better. Having known for many years what being "too long in the wood" does to distilled spirits, I still bought this more aged version anyway for $63 US. I don't regret it, but it's cheaper and younger HMS Princessa is smoother and better. This one is pepper on the tongue and a slight bitter after taste.

Très bonne surprise que ce rhum venu des îles de sainte Lucie!
Très bon équilibre entre les rhums antillais et ceux d’amériques Latines.
A tester de toute urgence!

Enjoyed a bottle of Admiral Rodney HMS Royal Oak while in London. Bottle and label design are very nice and high end. Golden color. Prunes, grapes, vanilla and oak to your nose and palate. Easily forgettable rum. Whisky like burn at the end. If you are a whisky lover, then add 2 points to the score.
