A classic rum, very easy to pick up in any off license, pretty cheap, and a taste that matches. Not terrible, just very simple dark rum, only good when mixed with plenty of coke.

I lived overseas for a couple of years in my youth and Lamb's and tonic was always a solid, dependable choice.

This is my first Lambs Rum and as expected for the $40NZD price, I knew this was going to be a simple, non complex rum with obvious flavours.
I was attracted to the bottle which caught my eye due to the St George cross emblazoned across the label. A darkened rum is enclosed and matches my wooden furniture nicely. Having tasted cheaper rums in the past I'm immediately thinking burnt treacle, black strap molasses, cautiously hot on the palate, maybe some oak, maybe some mild spice. In the glass swirls a clingy liquid which presents medium to thin legs. Molasses and caramel are on the nose once the glass is allowed to settle. It is obvious and dominates. Black strap molasses carries through to tasting, caramel notes are present as is a spiciness. I'm trying to find the oak, but it's not obvious. I want to try with ice and coke thinking this will carry nicely with the cola as I get some nuttiness in the flavor profile also.
This rum says hello and goodbye just as quick as it arrives. A warmness carries through to the stomach but nothing left in my mouth worth acknowledging.
Overall, a solid mixing rum. However will not be purchasing again, as it just does not stand out as a contender for my attention.

Maybe when I was a teenager I could drink this, but not my cup of tea. I take Pussers navel rum plantation over dark and even Myers Jamaican dark over this. I understand it has a good following maybe as a mixer but not in my bar.

Very common in bars so if you can’t get something more exciting for as a mixer with coke this will do

One of the first rums I ever had but it didn't offer what I was looking for. Was bought a bottle as a gift and it's better than I remember but just very rummy rum with nothing jumping out at all. Probably works great with coke but I don't do mixers.

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

Lamb’s Genuine Dark Navy Rum is pleasant but not overwhelming. It has a slight bite but finishes sweet .It is a Classic Navy style rum good for both sipping and mixing with your favorite cola .The price is affordable. The label is awesome displaying the Royal Navy ensign. If you have a collection of rums then this must be a part of it.

In university the 151 version of this rum was all I drank. Mostly because at 151 proof it was the best deal in the liquor store. But I learned to ready enjoy it
