I bought this on recommendation from our tour guide after a tour of an old rum distillery in St Lucia! A lovely drink and I've never looked at another bottle since! Glad i bought it home and have bought more since i been home!!!

very nice rum - was given a bottle as a gift for someone who knew nothing about rum and picked at random! bloody good pick!
As soon as you pour it in the glass it gives off lovely aromas, it has a balanced if sweet taste, with vanilla and caramel notes and a tiny trace of honey. would definately recommend

Having just come back from St. Lucia, this rum was so smooth and very palatable as an after dinner drink. Great Find.

The best rum I have ever tasted. My wife and I fell in love with it in St. Lucia (bought a bottle from the airport on the way back without knowing anything about it apart from the fact that it was the most expensive one) and ever since, we buy this particular rum only - online.

To me, this is exactly how I like it. Wonderfully smooth and sweet, with great integrated oak.

This has an obvious smell and taste of bourbon as it has been aged for up to 12 years in bourbon casks, but it is a really good smooth rum. A fine product!

We bought this rum after a visit to distillery in St Lucia, rum is gorgeous, wished we had bought more until found on Whisky Exchange, have just purchased a bottle and looking for to opening on my husband birthday (to see his face) as he kept asking why we could not buy in the UK

Lucky enough to know the family who manufacture this rum out in St Lucia. I have always been a fan on the oh so simple Mount Gay, but I have to say, this is a different experience. Its not just about the drinking, the whole package is spot on, from opening that wonderful shaped bottle, to that re-assuring pop you get when you open the bottle. The Taste is wonderful, and certainly one to savour.

Just sampled this rum, very good, i usually drink appletons VX and this tops it, smooth tasty and a rum you can drink a bottle easily in one sitting with friends.

I first purchased Admiral Rodney in a super market near Rodney Bay Marina on St Lucia. I was a little concerned because it was by far the most expensive on display and I did not want to be disappointed. Well I needn't have worried ... it's gorgeous and we sipped as a treat finishing it over Christmas. For several years there after I often tried an internet search to find it in the UK and was very pleased to find it at The Whisky Exchange.

Just got a bottle from my sister who came back from Christmas holidays in St.Lucia.It has a fantastic taste,not too sharp,with hints of different subtle fruity notes,leaves a lingering taste in the mouth,very pleasant sweetish smell.I'm already sorry that half of the bottle is gone and it's unlikely I will see another one very soon.Buy it if you enjoy rum on its own and as a gift.It comes in a very elegant heavy glass bottle that adds to the experience.Andrew,Edmonton,Canada,Jan 15 2011

Absolutely gorgeous smooth sipping rum! The presentation of the bottle along with the story of Admiral Rodney and the Bantam cock at the Battle of the Saintes in 1782 is a just wonderful addition.

This is an excellent rum which I first discovered in St. Lucia. It is very smooth and friends and family who have tried a blind tasting thought it was a good bourbon or even a brandy. Well worth a try.

We bought a bottle of Admiral Rodney in St Lucia but it stayed on the shelf for a while because the other island rums we tried were pleasant but not outstanding. This was a mistake as Admiral Rodney is a very good rum, nicely rounded and, as Bo says, has a slight hint of bourbon on the nose. The flavour is subtle but certainly not light. One to savour.

This is a beautiful rum!Very smooth, sweet enough
- Jim, Oxford, 3rd Feb '10
In our last tasting this one turned up too be a lovely suprise... Not as sweet as rhums usally are and lacking arrak tones. Medium full, round and rich in fruit and a touch of old bourbon in the nose. Interesting that it?s in fact matured in bourbon butts. An award winning rhum, buy it you wont regret it!Bo Nilsson, Varberg, Sweden.
