Rumbullion! Navy-Strength

Rumbullion! Navy-Strength

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Rumbullion! Navy-Strength to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Rumbullion! Navy Strength Bottling Note

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. Many say that this was so that the gunpowder would still explode if the rum was spilt on it, but we can absolutely assure you that navy strength rum-soaked gunpowder is useless for firing cannon balls (not that we tried it... no, that would be dangerous).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Rumbullion! Navy-Strength Reviews


Sailors used gunpowder to test rum ration for ABV if the rum had water added in by the pusser to cheat sailors the gunpowder would not burn !
Which usually resulted in the pusser vanishing overboard

Sublime, Delicous, Intoxicating!!!

Sublime! Delicious! Intoxicating!!
My newly found favourite rum. Rich flavour! More than a sip and your chest may ignite as you feel the warm build.
PLEASE try this at your favourite Rum Bar.
Whilst it may not be to your liking I guarantee you will not be disappointed and will enjoy the experience.
5 Stars is not a high enough rating.

It's packed with flavours and over the past week or so since i bought a bottle, & ive reached for it most nights, but beware the 57% is quite well hidden making it easy to drink which will 'get you there' quicker than expected, even if you are a lifelong spirit drinker. It's very spicy with the cinammon and cloves especially coming to the fore, and also quite sweet which may not be to everyones taste, but you dont buy a bottle like this without expecting that. Overall i love it as a change from scotch, so if you want something a tad different, certainly give this a spin.

A bottle full of flavour and giggles.

I tried this rum at the BBC good food show. It was so awesome in its flavour, I bought it on the spot. Gives you a warm giggly feeling..

Soooooo rich

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.

Epic, I tell thee

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).

No better companion to have stashed in your shed... 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.

The mymic

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.

The best rum I've ever tasted....

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.

1st January 2014

Expecting big things!

As a regular drinker of spiced rum I cannot wait for this bottle to arrive. Ordered this for Christmas so will post another review on Boxing day!

17th December 2013

Wow again

Sorry forgot to rate it. Well worth a ten.

15th November 2013


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.

15th November 2013


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.

Fantastic stuff

Like drinking spicy, fizzy cola cubes, this stuff is fantastic, highly recommended. :-) Full review
