Admiral Benbow Navy Rum
Admiral Benbow // Multiple Countries
This navy rum is produced from rums made in a couple of islands in the Caribbean. It is named for an Admiral who served in the Royal Navy from 1678 until his death in 1702 from a wound to his leg he suffered in the West Indies under French fire. He returned to Jamaica, and court-marshaled two of his captains for insubordination for failing to engage the enemy. He succumbed to his wounds and is buried in Kingston. This rum is available in the UK.
Navy RumAged rum that are often blends of rums from English-colonized countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad, British Guyana, and Barbados. Technically, navy-strength rums are 54.5% ABV or higher, though not all overproof rums are Navy Rums. Taste-wise, Navy Rums are usually rich and funky, and best used in Tiki drinks or punches.
"There's an aroma much like the end of your coffee cup (if you take sugar) which also has a pleasant smoky quality to it. The palate is more of the same with some bitterness at the end. While enjoyable, the rum isn't especially exciting. For the price, however, you could do far worse."
