Lamb’s Navy Rum is a blend of Caribbean rums that are aged four years in whiskey and bourbon barrels.
The original Lamb's Navy rum recipe, created by Alfred Lamb, blended 18 different rums sourced from Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados and Guyana. Lamb began blending the rums in England in 1859 and references the British Royal Navy in its name.
Hints of chocolate, specifically chocolate cake/brownie, currants, notes of fresh cut grass
Angle food cake/birthday cake flavor, vanilla, slightly oaky, goes down smooth
Nowadays there are better dark or spiced runs available, for. Similar price or slightly more expensive. In comparison, this one no longer seems authentic to the Navy tradition it markets itself on. The taste is a bit synthetic. Drinkable in mixed drinks but that's all. Don't give it as a present. Best would be to use what you have left for cooking and then upgrade.
I’m quite the fan of a hot chocolate and rum on a winter's night. I’d never dream of putting a decent rum in a hot drink so this is my go to. Its not as bad as some of the other cheap/entry level rums.
The reputation of this rum proceeded it so I avoided it for years. Tried it straight up recently and it lived up to it's critics, very harsh making it hard to even describe any flavour it might have. I can't imagine it being much better with a mixer and I will not be trying it.
