Admiral Nelson’s Spiced Rum is bottled at 70 proof (35 % alc/vol). The Rum is bottled in the U.S. by Admiral Nelson Rum Company of Missouri. The bottle I reviewed would have been aged in oak for at least one year as per Canadian Law. The Admiral Nelson Rum website indicates that savory spices are used to create the blend with a hint of sweet vanilla.
Here is an excerpt from my review:
“…When I swirled the rum, I noticed nice long slender legs in my glass. I like long slender legs as they indicate a touch of oiliness in the rum which should lengthen the finish. After I let the glass sit for a while, I took a nice deep wiff and found that the nose of this rum is quite nice. I’m getting a little vanilla, and fragrant rummy caramel which rise up in a nice mixture. Tidbits of other spices meander in and out of the breezes, light accents of cloves, coriander and nutmeg. I detect very little if any oak scent at all….”
