Not quite what I was hoping for. A bit of uncontrolled funk with a fair bit of hotness - quite a significant bite. I find that, at a similar price, Pusser's Gunpowder Proof outperforms it by a lot.

Rum tasting in New York City continued with Hamilton 114 Navy Strength Rum. Old school bottle and label design. Light golden color. No added sugars at all. Typical Jamaican funk and glue straight to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Might be rotten banana peels, or rotten pineapple, or might be a weird copper still method, but trust me, the nose test is simply nasty. Dry burn and more funk and more glue at the end.

More of that Jamaican funk but with some bite behind it.

Last bottle from epic rum tasting last night. I am a huge fan of British Navy Rums, with the best ones Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica or Barbados. This one falls short. A bit too much Jamaica for my tastes, initial funk without enough depth of the Guyana. A nice rum for the money and at overproof not to much kick. Reality 6.5

The extra 2.5% ABV on this rum over Pusser's Gunpowder Proof absolutely ruins it. It is still an okay rum deserving of my rating of 6, but no more. The Hamilton's Florida Rum Society is also light years better at 90 proof instead of this 114 Proof. Ice cubes cannot even tame this one.

Overproof goodness. The alcohol burn is mild. You can drink it neat and feel the raw or cube or water it and the burn becomes a wisper. Airing let’s the banana and pineapple peep out. Piratejabez say it all in his review. The sugar and vanilla linger well.

57% ABV—that's "full proof," as the name indicates. Lively, prickly nose. Young Jamaican funk really excited to get out of the bottle and into your senses. Benefits from time to breathe in the glass. Hint of banana and pineapple. Grounded by the rich, caramelly demerara. In the palate, full, with the same fruits, plus treacle, and an array of herbaceous notes. Anise? More pineapple. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Finish has some bitterness, with a hint of cherry, and is reasonably long. Good at bottle strength, but a few drops of water doesn't hurt.

Delicious neat, it begs to be deployed in a Navy Grog or other drinks. It's not the most refined navy rum I've ever had, but it's a good introduction to the style at a great price. If you like navy-style rums like Pusser's, don't pass this one up. It's a great deal.

7+, 8-

With a cube of ice and a good hand rolled Nicaraguan.

I have tried many different Navy Rums, and this is the one I like the best. I love Jamaican and Agricore rums, and want that same taste in my Navy Rum. I have used Pusser's before I bought Hamilton, and found it a bit lacking in the flavours I am looking for in a rum. If you like Jamaican and Navy Strength, I would suggest you try this one.

This is my favorite Hamilton expression. The bottle just disappeared.
