I do really enjoy this rum. Color is perfect, smell is very nice and taste is so smooth and complex, real pleasure. Bottle is really nice, with cool wooden plug, wich adds little bit on exlusivity.

This is outstanding. Deep and complex. Thick and chewy. Flawlessly smooth. I have tried 3 ships in the Admiral Rodney fleet. All were impressive. This one is awesome and stands slightly above the rest. Balance is perfect. Not sweet. Great bite but you hardly notice it. Fantastic sipper. Better neat than on ice but GREAT either way. Lovely tobacco, coffee and plum notes. Finish is long and subtle. Very smooth and memorable. So good I am going to have to buy the officers release. Well done AGAIN by St Lucia distillers.

Très bonne surprise que ce rhum venu des îles de sainte Lucie!
Très bon équilibre entre les rhums antillais et ceux d’amériques Latines.
A tester de toute urgence!

More caramel notes than the princessa, traditional st lucia burn but smoother, nice long lasting caramel finish

Ešte som nemal rum zo Sv. Lucie ktorý by mi nechutil. Vôňa po naliatí trochu pichľavá, ale po chvíli sa krásne rozvoňala. Drevo, korenie, med, sušené ovocie. V chuti sa ešte pridáva aj čokoláda a tabak. Výborný rum!

Unfortunately I haven't currently got a bottle of the "standard" Adm Rodney XO to compare it to, and memory is a little hazy!! It comes across as having a lot more soft oak.However I don't quite understand the pricing structure. The standard Admiral Rodney is a 12yo, and this one is a 7yo yet more expensive.

My personal preference is a dry rum (no sugar added), that is warm and spicy with a good gentle burn from the alcohol and with a heavy dose of oak. Not so much that it masks flavours, and not sweet sherry oak. A rum with a good length and that is unctuous. This rum has it all.

It is to me really superb....I just now want to try it against the normal Admiral Rodney to see what the difference really is!!!

We selected this bottle to write some tasting notes up for our WSET II course at home, and wow, it'a beauty. Well Done St. Lucia.

Appearance: Clean, medium amber
Nose: Clean, medium + intensity. Sultanas, vanilla, tobacco, caramel, cocoa, cloves, brown sugar and allspice
Palate: Clean, smooth and mouthfilling. Dry (although it has an appearance of sweetness, not residual sugar) with a medium + intensity, tobacco, caramel, dark chocolate, cloves and baking spices. Long finish, very complex.
Overall rating: Outstanding.
