Admiral Rodney HMS Princessa Break the Line Saint Lucia Rum

Deep mahogany color with honeyed raisins on the nose and a hint of vanilla and tobacco. Sweet with intense brown sugar, crème brulee tones balanced by dry toasty oak. Complex finish with good oak integration, caramel, and tropical spice.

It is without question, column distillation transformed how rums throughout the Caribbean were produced in the 20th century. Some of the keynote advantages were centered around efficiency. The Aeneas Coffey twin column design became a popular choice for rum producers in the British West Indies. As demand for lighter and cheaper rum grew, some distilleries around the Caribbean added more plates and eventually more columns to make even lighter spirits with less congeners. Many rums today are distilled on multi-column stills with numerous plates making rums washed of any natural character. It is these rums that have contributed to some of the negative perception of column distillation of rum.

The column still at St. Lucia Distillers is a traditional twin column Coffey still commissioned in 1985. The Admiral Rodney rums have the fingerprint of Saint Lucian rum, which is a rum character unparalleled to any other fine aged rum. The rich flavor profile is undoubtedly from the brilliance of extracting pure rum on lower plates in the rectifier column with lower alcohol by volume. These are heavier bodied rums than most column distilled rums and deserve extended periods of aging in oak casks to fully evolve into the Saint Lucia’s most prized liquid treasure.

Excellent, Hard to Find Rum

Having only been able to previously obtain this while travelling in the Caribbean, due to import issues that prevent this product from being widely available in the US, I was elated to find it here. The smooth taste leaves you feeling as if you have been sipping it while sitting in the sun next to the ocean all day. Customer Service was adequate and responded to my inquiries timely. The only piece that was lacking was the slow delivery. The Fed Ex cost unreasonable as it was lost in transit for a few days BUT I think I will try and order again, not during the Christmas season, with hopes of having a better experience.
