Rumbullion Navy Strength
17 Aug '16
At 57% it is less easy to drink than the rumbullion Spiced. The same flavours are there and is still delicious but a little overpowered by that extra strength removing the subtlety of the complex flavours from the original
If you love spiced rum you're going to have to try this. Positively bursting with flavor, helped by being bottled at 114 proof, it will warm you up in one sip, and burn you to a crisp after a few more. The tasting notes at Master of Malt (where I bought it) are perfectly accurate: orange zest, cola syrup, vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, caramel and oak. Some sugar, of course, but it's not too sweet. The after-taste lingers forever. I love it straight up, but if you drink rum and coke or Painkillers, you'd be in Heaven with this rum. A winner.
Nose def. need some water to open up, lots of it. Alcohol is quite heavy before watering.
With water comes the mulled wine pouring in! WOW! Mulled and spiced wine is fairly big around christmas in Sweden and this rum is right up there with the best - mulled wines that is.
Its heavy on the typical christmas flavours- cardemom, cinnamon, almonds, dried fruits.
This is a real christmas drink and its growing on me now that I know what to expect. Not the typical rum though, more of an alcohol heavy mulled wine!
Bit stronger than what I am used to, but after mellowing it down with an ice cube it reveals its smooth taste. Vanilla, citrus fruit and a tiny bit of cardamom. After pouring let it rest to reveal its full taste and begin sipping.

This is superb. Aromatic cloves and cinnamon with orange I think. Thick in the glass, a gorgeous dark amber colour, and a warm flavour made me very festive. Bottle just won't last very long but while it does I'm enjoying it to the max.
