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.
I approached Lamb's Navy with a little trepidation since opinions on it seem sharply divided and I therefore had little to no idea what to expect. The nose is leathery with just a tiny hint of smoke and, I suppose, is kinda what you'd expect so no problems there. It's got a good, robust flavour which is better that some other cheaper mass market products but doesn't make much impression on the front of one's palate. There's lots of spice/burn and it has a nice finish with a pleasant aftertaste. It's also a good colour, which appears to be mostly from actual aging rather than from added chemicals as in certain other products I could mention. In conclusion, then, the Lamb's Navy Rum is better than I expected and I'd certainly buy it again whenever I'm really broke.
even with cola I struggle to drink it very weak taste
Tastes of burnt molasses, raisins and spice. The best for it's price. I was pleasantly surprised I exspected a flavour lacking dark rum like captain Morgan's, but this holds its own not great but not bad. Easy to drink
Very strange and horrible flavour to it. Could not finish the glass.
Heavy blackstrap molasses on the nose, mixed with raisins and other dried fruits, spices and a bit of leather, surprisingly tamed on the palate, starting as sweet toffee, quickly turning dry, little bit of spices, cocoa, and molasses again, the aftertaste not very pronounced, simple, spicy, short-ish. My overall feeling is - decent, smooth, uncomplicated navy rum for the masses. I can see other reviews mentioning the rum is quite sweet - the rum I bought is actually dry, sugar level here is close to zero - significantly less than in El Dorado 8, which has 15gpl. The blackstrap molasses component present in both smell and taste remind me of El Dorado 8y and Woods Navy. The only actual downside of this rum is the simplicity of its taste, which is understandable, considering the price. Decent quality, next to none sugar, low price, usable both straight or mixed - I am pleasantly surprised here.
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
Taken the mantle of the standard dark rum
"Steve Crotty via Rum & Reviews
The rum is very sweet.
"It’s a very rich, sweet, fruity rum."

Hints of chocolate, specifically chocolate cake/brownie, currants, notes of fresh cut grass
