I actually don't care for this rum . Don't get me wrong I'll drink it but cut it with cola

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.

Ikke en rom som skræmmer nogle som helst, mangler en del mere bid og eftersmag, efter min mening.

Drank on the rocks.

A harsh dark rum. Can usually only have a couple, before moving on to something spiced.

I drank this many years ago, it was okay in a pinch.

Vzhledem k nízké ceně dávám alespoň 4z10. Jinak pro mě zklamání. Chuť je drsná a nehodí se na pomalé popíjení.

Jak se na námořnický rum sluší, tak je ostřejší. Idealní na zahřátí.

First rum I ever had not too bad but a bit nasty on its own.

Never seen it before in bordershops in Denmark, and it was very cheap, so just another one for the collection :)
My do got another labels.


Niet mijn ding.......................................

Nice initial smell but the taste is harsh and empty. If you're stuck with it, add in sugary cocktails


This Rum is my Grandmothers favourite. Only good with Coke.

Cannot drink straight, ok as a mixer. In terms of cheap rums go for Captain Morgans over this.

This is a quintessential Canadian liquor product somewhat like the Canadian wines of yesteryear. Just truly bad not worth drinking if someone gave you a bottle.

Not much for body in this one, I'll drink it if it's given to me lol

Meer van verwacht, puur een oké rummetje, molasses en wat hout, maar zeer geschikt voor in een baco.


All to be expected from a large scale dark navy rum but certainly not the worst.

Nice initial flavour but the toasted caramel is just a bit too bitter for the end note.

Best saved for mixing or a cold long night at sea.

Compared to the real navy rum, this seemed like water. A pale shadow of by-gone days. I suspect the recipe has changed in recent years.

This is an OK rum that has stood the test of time. Not my favourite, but a good chaser after a cider or four.
Probably best enjoyed with a coke/Pepsi, I'd rather not spoil any drink like a rum or whisky with a coke.

I have had a tot or two of this drink every year on my birthday since I was 16 thanks to my ex RN father. I have grown to appreciate the flavour but still find it a little too harsh for it to be classed as a rum I'd drink by choice. The smell is far nicer than the taste which often reminds me of burnt hair. A great drink to mix with Shrub in true Cornish style.

Feels a little watered down and wouldn't particularly choose this if I had the choice

One of those rums that stays at the back of your drinks cabinet for years without being consumed. Very good as an aditive ingredient to rum cakes. 😈

Lambs navy is ok as the title suggests cheap but ok
