Review: Lamb’s Navy Rum  (80 Proof) 

Posted by Arctic Wolf on July 20, 2022

This review concludes my journey through the Lamb’s family of rums which I embarked on earlier this year.

In Canada, Lamb’s is one of the most popular rum brands. This brand traces its history all the way back to 1849 when Alfred Lamb opened his wine and spirits business in London. His original Navy Rum is reported to have been a blend of 18 separate rums from various parts of the Caribbean. Alfred Lamb’s method of aging his rum in cellars under the Thames River is said to be one of the secrets behind the unexpectedly smooth taste and popularity of his rum.

The Lamb’s brand was licensed for North American production to Corby Distillers in 1952 and since that time Lamb’s rum has been part of the Corby portfolio of spirit brands. (Halewood Artisanal Spirits hold the license to bottle the brand in Europe, Africa and Asia.)

In North America, the main portfolio of Lamb’s Rums includes, Lamb’s Classic White Rum, Lamb’s Spiced Rum, Lamb’s Palm Breeze, and Lamb’s Navy Rum (which is sold both at 80 proof as well as an overproof 151).

Here is a link to my review for Lambs Navy Rum (80 Proof):

Review: Lamb’s Navy Rum (80 Proof)

“… The first sip brings firm impressions of sweet molasses and caramel with ribbons of licorice and tobacco running right through. I also taste impressions of vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and brown sugar. My feeling is that the rum is a fairly standard dark rum which relies on added caramel and/or molasses to achieve the desired colour and flavour profile …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with my suggested serving, Dark Rum and Cola.

Chimo!
