Review: Admiral Rodney HMS Princessa

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 15, 2020

Admiral Rodney Rums are produced by St. Lucia Distillers which is situated in the valley of Roseau on the island of St Lucia. Their Admiral Rodney Rums are named for Admiral George B. Rodney who is remembered as the Admiral who broke the French line at the Battle of the Saints. Each of the Rums in the Admiral Rodney line-up pays homage to the naval battle remembering the courage of British fleet which “broke the line” and defeated the French.

Admiral Rodney Rums are produced on a twin column Coffey still commissioned in 1985. Admiral Rodney HMS Princessa contains within its construct, Coffey still rum from the lower sections of the still which results in a robust and complex flavor profile. The spirits were aged in bourbon and port casks for 5 to 9 years before being blended and brought to bottling strength (40 % abv.).

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Admiral Rodney HMS Princessa

“… brown sugar mingling with vanilla cinnamon and nutmeg reminding me of cinnamon rolls. Oak spice and tobacco add structure and depth as soes a light woody flavour that is wrapped within. I taste canned fruit (apricots) and raisins as well as dry leathery flavours …”

Please enjoy my review as well as the suggested cocktail provided.
