Lamb’s Navy Rum is a blend of Caribbean rums that are aged four years in whiskey and bourbon barrels.
The original Lamb's Navy rum recipe, created by Alfred Lamb, blended 18 different rums sourced from Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados and Guyana. Lamb began blending the rums in England in 1859 and references the British Royal Navy in its name.
Ok, it's fine with a cola. If you're skint you'll order it in a rough boozer. Um...yeah, rum and coke please.
A top class and long established Rum, excellent with black current juice, or, just add a touch of water. Highly recommended, never get a hangover in the morning and always keep me eye on the price.
I actually don't care for this rum . Don't get me wrong I'll drink it but cut it with cola
A good basic dark rum, nice sweet flavour, but not overly so as some have suggested. Notes of Dark Chocolate and Coffee, a hint of spice and a lovely slightly burnt molasses taste. I enjoy sipping it neat. Amazing value for the price. Not in the league of Pussars or the more expensive, but a good everyday dark rum and the best of the budget Navy/Dark Rums I have tasted so far.
Full flavoured, dark and quite enjoyable rum if price/value is your concern
Honestly I thought it would be as bad as Morgan's but it's not. Sweet with molasses and plum. Quite pleasant really.
A great rum for mixing. Consistent and reliable quality. Not a deluxe reserve rum, but neither a poor mixer. Its one of my favourites, because I love the flavour, which is balanced against the alcohol well.
Possibly the first rum I ever tried. It's drinkable but hardly bears comparison to any rum with a touch of craft. Cheap, ok to mix, sluggable and rather artificial in terms of what rum should taste like.
Black strap molasses dominates both your nose and tongue , spicey , burnt treacle , no real authenticity in my opinion. Artificially forced , but in saying that makes a decent rum n coke , but only two then I'd had enough of it !
A classic rum, very easy to pick up in any off license, pretty cheap, and a taste that matches. Not terrible, just very simple dark rum, only good when mixed with plenty of coke.
I lived overseas for a couple of years in my youth and Lamb's and tonic was always a solid, dependable choice.
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.
May seem like an old man's rum but this is actually a good one
I sampled this on a night with my brother-in-law and found it quite drinkable, but also a bit non-descript. My regular mixing rum is Trawler and it has bags of flavour. However I found this one like a watered down version: it has mild notes of sweet, caramelised, brown sugar along with notes of molasses and toffee. At £15 a bottle this is well worth the price, it won't knock your favourite off its top spot, but it's a perfectly acceptable dark rum.
The high rating is probably more nostalgia than anything else, but pretty much everyone has to have a bottle of this lying around. Relatively cheap for a bucket full, mixes well with cola - and can be seen in most pubs, offy's and supermarkets. Growing up, it was the only rum I ever saw, so naturally its the first bottle of rum I ever bought for myself.
This is darker than my normal choices, but from the first nose, you realise it’s a solid old fashioned rum.
Just about smooth enough to sip over ice, but add a slice of lime, then coke and it comes into its own. One of the best for rum and coke.
Loved the bottle shape ...some history there ...look it up ....anyway, for a NAVY rum ..VERY thick , molasses feature !! Had a wonderful evening in front of the fireplace in January !!!...Perfect for mixer !.....
Nothing special when sipping neat, very whisky like, leves strong demera sugar aftertaste. Suprisingly sweet begining, Than a fast appearing Coffee like aftertaste. When you mix with Coke, strongly remind the usual taste of cold brew Coffee,
its not my type in this price range. I thought it will be more rum like and breaking through classic rum taste.. But it reminds me the Last fast shot of whisky when you hawe to leave the bar..
Cheap mixer "navy" style rum blend bottled in the Great Britain at 40%
Nose: quite heavy "toasty" butterscotch, vanilla, bit sweet on the nose, mostly trini and barbados character on the nose with tiny bit of jamaican funk in the end
Taste: butterscotch and vanilla, quite young and bit flat flavour wise.
Finish: mild oak, bit drying with quite unpleasant alcoholic kick.
Overall: Quite bland rum, too alcoholic and light bodied for me, is also bit lost in tiki cocktails so i would never pick this over Wood's or Pussers.
There is nothing great about this rum, but for the price you can't knock it. My uncle who lives by the sea is a loyal lambs navy rum drinker. With some coke and ice you'll never look back.
Rough n ready good for stormy nights at sea and harbour
Hodí sa len na miešané nápoje, dosť sklamanie pri sólovom pití.
velmi slušný rum za dobrou cenu. krásná barva, v chuti tmavá čokoláda.
The main stay of every pub in the UK, but that doesn't make it a good rum
Drinkable if there is nothing else
Drinkable mixed, but the after taste is really not great, even with coke.
I was introduced to rum & coke by a friend when I first started uni. His preference was always Lamb's and mine was Captain Morgan's, but we both went for whichever of the two a bar had...can't remember which I actually tried first. I found it slipped down better than vodka / whisky and coke, so I got through my fair share as a student.
I didn't know any better until I stumbled across Sailor Jerry's at a local Wetherpoon's, due to it being 10p cheaper (how?).
