Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this with me as part of rare rum exchange.

I found this rum WAY too dry to be enjoyable to me. I can hardly taste any classic rum flavor that I enjoy so much.

Smells and tastes of oak, tobacco, and a little spice. Too dry for my liking, and the 57%abv only enhances a flavor that I don't particularly care for.

This rum is made according to an old receipt that has been found among old documents.
It's a blend from Demerara, Barbados, Jamaica rums.
Because of this fact and the independent bottler Silver Seal I ordered this beautiful bottle.

After around 1h in the glas the nose is quite strong. The first flavor is PM Demerara and Hampden, I smell the backed apple like in Smith&Cross rum.
But the apple is in balance to Demerara and Barbados rum, it's not as fruity as Smith&Cross. I have all three distilleries in the nose in a great balance.
The masterblender did a good job.

The taste starts with PM aromas and sweetness, then backed apple. The middle taste belongs to the Barbados rum with orange peels and wood.
And in the finish there are at first some earthy notes that are turning very fast into Demerara notes of honey and fruits.

This is a great blend, I like some darker navy blends like Pussers more, but this is still a good one.
I would say it's also better as the old Nelson's blood.
The journey that this rum offers is great, all influences are noticeable and in great balace. A very intensive, strong, rich and balanced rum. Watch out it's very spicy.
My recommandation for navy style rum lovers. Would rate this one with 84 points.

Nose: backed apple (Hampden), oak and orange (Mount Gay), honey and typical Guyana fruit (Demerara)

Aroma is light and gentle, but weak. taste is fruity and woody + bit sweet. But after comes alcohol burn that is not very pleasant (despite I´m fan of high voltage rum) Aftertaste is shorter with some bitter tones + spice and chocolate.

Ve vůni je cítit drevo a sladkost po marcipanu a vanilce. V chuti sušší je cítit melasa, trochu ovoce. Závěr příjemne hrejivy a dlouhý.

Goldfarbenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase öffnet sich ein Ozean der Düfte. Eine steife Briese weht Düfte von frisch gerösteten Kakao und Kaffee in die Segel, man kann das Holz der ächzenden Masten förmlich riechen, der Smutje koch gerade eine Karamellcreme mit Exotischen Gewürzen und einer Lakritzstange.
Am Gaumen trifft eine ganze Flotte voller Aromen ein. Keine Seeschlacht mit den Geschmacksknospen trotz den 57 % Vol. Die Navy präsentiert voller Stoltz Ihre Fässer voller Rum, Säcke mit Kakaobohnen, Körbe gefüllt mit Vanille, sorgfältig getrocknete tropische Früchte verpackt in feine Baumwollsäcke, ausgesuchte aromatische Kräuter und Gewürze in dunklen Gläser. Das haltet die Crew bei Laune !
Im Abgang sind die Silhouetten von Kakao, Kardamom, Karamell und Holz am Horizont lange zu sehen.
Ein toller Navy Rum für Liebhaber dieses Styls. Braucht eine lange offene Zeit um die Aromen zu entfalten. Für Matrosen und Käpt'n.

Gold-coloured amber in the glass.
In the nose opens an ocean of fragrances. A stiff breeze blows the scents of freshly roasted cocoa and coffee into the sails, you can literally smell the wood of the groaning masts, the smutje is cooking a caramel cream with exotic spices and a liquorice stick.
A whole fleet of aromas arrives on the palate. No sea battle with the taste buds despite the 57% vol. The Navy proudly presents its barrels of rum, bags of cocoa beans, baskets filled with vanilla, carefully dried tropical fruits packed in fine cotton bags, selected aromatic herbs and spices in dark glasses. That keeps the crew happy !
In the finish the silhouettes of cocoa, cardamom, caramel and wood can be seen on the horizon for a long time.
A great Navy Rum for lovers of this style. Needs a long open time to develop the aromas. For sailors and captains.

Rum tasting with my good old buddy in Hamburg during global lockdown continued onwards with Silver Seal 2018 Old Navy Rum. Very childish logo and base bottle design. Boring comes to mind. Light golden color. Harsh alcohol is masking a fairly decent base. Only if this one would have been aged 15 years more, it would be good.
