Admiral Rodney Extra Old rum is produced in St. Lucia using a continuous still, and then aged in American oak casks for an average of 12 years.
The rum is named after British Naval Officer Admiral George Rodney, who in 1782 as the Governor of St. Lucia rebuffed the Spanish fleet in the "Battle of the Saints".
Very smooth rum, but does the smooth thing without going all bland on you. Lots of subtle flavors, highly recommended. On the basis of its taste, it would be a 9.5, but what makes it a ten is that it comes in the coolest packaging in the rum world. It comes in an excellent box with a lot of historical info, and the bottle itself is so nice (particularly the cork), that it makes for a real showpiece on your mantle. Definitely one to get if you're traveling through the Caribbean.
As an novice, I'm starting to appreciate the intricacies of Rum tasting & the fact that one mans pleasure is another mans poison. I can see why this is a well thought of Rum, I just find it a little sharp, compared to my favorites, & thus it's not on my "to buy" list. That said, I also wouldn't turn down a glass as it's still nice!
Aromas of sweet mild oak, caramel, leather, vanilla, with an under notes of nutmeg & cloves. An initial taste of caramel, balanced by nut flavours and a woody texture. The finish is medium dry.
