First time was on old plantation veranda in St Lucia, was one of the best rums they had. Enjoyed it with a nice cigar. Had it again recently wanting to relive the moment. Good rum 7.5 but not great.

Again, a rhum from Ste-Lucia. Beautiful bottle and cork, Nice Brown color, it is a heavy rum,
leaving good legs on the glass. Nose is sweet , caramel and vanilla, balanced, smooth. I had great expectations for this rum, fell a bit short.

Colour is light.
Smell is ok.
Taste is ok.
Aftertaste is good.
Like that no sugar is in it.

Great looking bottle and excellent reviews. Once I had a chance to compare it to other St. Lucia Distillery rums, like 1931, I chose the lather.... not bad but definitely falls short.

I had been looking forward to trying this for a long time and was pretty impressed. Lovely mahogany colour in a very elegant bottle with a huge stopper ! Loved the history lesson on the box ( giving the French what for... ) . Good long legs in the glass clinging nicely to the sides . Aroma of caramel , vanilla plus oak and a spicy , fruity something ? Left to vent for 20 mins , still a strong but not unpleasant bite on the first sip , whiskey like maybe ? . A classy sipper and a drop of water brings out more honey and fruit notes. Plus for a longer drink this made one of the best rum n cokes i have ever tasted ! That said probably wouldn't rush into buying another bottle as still hundreds more to try....

Priced at just over a half century, as I like to say the options for other fantastic spirits start to open up. Admiral Rodney is not a bad rum on the contrary it's quite good. It's smooth and maybe too much so. I'm convinced that rums benefit from being bottled above 40% ABV and unfortunately the Admiral is pedestrian in this test. Still yet of the 80 proof club this is one of the finer ones I've sampled.
A balanced sipper, only a fool would use this in a mixed cocktail, not one element overpowers the other. Very harmonious and sniffing it just now in the dead of winter brings images of the warm tropics. Palm trees swaying in a gentle breeze. It's that kind of rum.
But at this price for a slice of white sand visions, I'm likely to go elsewhere next time. I like my rum with a little more hair and a bit more authentic to what the good Admiral was probably drinking himself in his day.
Definitely give it a go if your flush with cash and you enjoy excellent down the middle agreeable rum.
Hold off if your looking to push the envelope.

Rhum plus épicé se rapprochant du whisky. Peu d'aromes au nez mais se rattrappe bien en bouche. Arriere gout très plaisant.

Vanille boisée ... Belle tinte. Il est moelleux, tout en longueur.

Une vraie découverte. A profiter au coin d'un feu :-)

I thought it had a little to strong alcohol taste. But ill give it a few more chanses. Love the bottle.

nothing nasty with this I was just expecting more going on the reviews
To be honest I just finished sipping a glass of Ron Cartavio XO so I guess my palette has been conditioned to the earlier

Nose stong vanilla and slight citrus/floral
taste initial alcohol took over the tongue and had to search hard for the notes of vanilla and citrus
second and third sipps more alcohol and somewhat metallic citrus followed by vanilla
with ice the sharp burn subsides however this is one that id be happy to leave out on the table to be used as I wont be in hurry to buy another
as I said its not a bad rum just not memorable compared to pusser's 15,diplomatico 2002 ,quorhum 30
