nice pleasant sipping rum but not as many subtleties in flavors as the 1931
a lovely smooth rum with a light spicy fruity after taste, nice sipper but I prefer with coke and ice.
Très bon Rhum avec arôme vanillé et caramel ainsi qu'une touche boisée. Un peu trop sec au nez et au palet à mon goût...
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.
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.
Although a wee harsher than some rums of similar age, this is still a nice drink. I like the taste with cola, but not a big fan of it straight.....just a tad too much bite if on its own.
Super smag af bl.a creme brulée.
Lækker lang eftersmag.

Notes of banana and a little tropical fruit.
"There is an alcohol burn. Banana and a little black grape, hints of vanilla contribute to the overall smoothness of the rum. ."

A Bit Overpriced 7 out of 10
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.
