Ableforth's took their famous Rumbullion! and bottled it at Navy Strength to create a much much 'bigger' drink. This is a warming concoction that would no doubt give a sailor vim and vigour on a stormy night!
Rumbullion! Navy Strength is made using a secret recipe with a Caribbean rum at its spicy core. Expect big spicy flavours of cardamom, clove and vanilla in this legendary spiced rum.
Navy Strength is 57%abv, the reason for this, allegedly, was that gunpowder would still explode if alcohol at this strength was accidentally spilt on it. However the Professor conducted an experiment to see if it really would still explode, the results were recorded in the video below.
Nose: Incredibly intense. Buckets of vanilla combine with flamed orange zest. A spicy, rich nose with candied peels, cola syrup, cloves, cardamom and oak.
Palate: An absolutely huge whack of high-proof spicy vanilla-laden complexity. Cola cubes, molasses and honey, cinnamon and crème caramel. Hints of Valencia oranges with cloves and mixed peels.
Finish: An incredibly long finish, cinnamon, allspice and creamy custard apples.
Overall: If there was ever going to be anything that could top the standard Rumbullion! this is it. The additional ABV will be a welcome boon to those used to cask-strength whiskies, and those who appreciate deep and intense flavours.

There's just so much going on here. Richness, balance, complexity, and above all an absolutely mouth-filling hit from all the spices. This makes the single best Roke on the planet.

I don't even like rum normally and I'm smitten with this stuff. There's so much going on in it. Awesome neat on ice (the strength helps stop it going watery too) and makes lovely Dark & Stormys (as long as you use great ginger beer - like Fever Tree).

...in addition to two friends and a couple Cuban cigars. Dispatched 2/3 of a bottle of this delicious tipple neat between the three of us on an evening. We've done the single malt thing for a long time, and while it doesn't have the subtle complexities, it has a shedload of zesty flavour & spice, warmth by the bucketload, and it made us giggle like idiots.

No need to post my notes here, the MOM lot have hit the nail on the head. Cardamon and orange peel by the bucket-load. This is for want of a better word "grown up" spiced rum.

I've had a LOT of rums over the years, but this stuff blows them all out of the water. PACKED with flavour, and a warm aftertaste...I don't think I will be going back to "off the shelf" for a while.

The title of this review is the noise I made after a taste. This is GORGEOUS.

Opened first thing this morning, what a taste!!!! Anyone wanting something a bit different with plenty of flavour and nose you can't go far wrong in buying a bottle of this.
Neat, ice, mixed this rum delivers over and over to the palate that can take it. Sautéing onions in a bit of this turns any meal into a unique and savory experience.
