Wood's Old Navy Rum

Unfortunately, we can't ship Wood's Old Navy Rum to the United States at the moment, but we've got some friends who can.

Wood's Old Navy Rum Bottling Note

Wood's is made from the finest sugar cane and distilled in Guyana, South America. Bottled at 57% abv, it is one of the highest percentage volume dark rums out there right now, at least at this price.

Its smooth enough to enjoy neat, but also a killer choice for cocktails.

Cutters Harrismith Rum

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Toffee, cinnamon, cloves and pepper spice on the nose with thick caramel notes.

Palate: Muscovado sugar, soft toffee and just a hint of the spice detected on the nose. This is very smooth, belying its hefty abv.

Finish: Surprisingly short but thick and syrupy toffee notes abound.

Overall: A rich, dark rum with a high abv that retains its smoothness. Would work well in a dark and stormy, despite the fact Wood's is distilled in Guyana, and not Bermuda.

Wood's Old Navy Rum Reviews

Brilliant, Classic Warming Rum !!!

A Great Heart Warming Rum a true classic used to be available in my local Sainsburys but its looking like they don't stock anymore so might have to try elsewhere but a Brilliant Rum!!!

Been on a whisky tip, this was recommended by a friend. Absolute banger, and what value with the high strength! Surprisingly smooth, big flavour. If you like treacle and alcohol, you'll love this. Not subtle.

100 Proof Rum in old money

Been drinking this for decades. Can be sipped straight on a cold day.

Mixed 50/50 with stones ginger wine to “cure” a cold. OK, not sure it really cures the cold, but you notice it less !

King of dark rums. Smooth but carries a kick.

This is a beautifully smooth dark rum but with a kick in its tail. I love it best on the rocks, does slowly to enjoy the hues and tones of this king of rums. A warning though, a couple of large measures of this will give you a headache unless you drink plenty of water alongside. It's also great mixed with ice cold Pepsi Max, where it forms a beautiful brown head that looks like Guinness but tastes nothing like it, just gorgeous creamy rum.

Big flavours, big alcohol, big boys drink

I've encountered a few old naval ratings in my time and to a man they swore by Woods. It was our late night "Spoof" shot of choice.
I find its warming flavour very comforting, but there's nothing subtle about Woods, none of that "hints of" malarkey; no sophisticated, lingering finish: just the baked sugar, toasted almond and boozy raisin taste of Christmas cake with toffee sauce, a hint of licorice then a short but significant hit of alcohol. If a 25 Yr old El Dorado is a scalpel, then Woods is a chainsaw, followed by a pickaxe, followed by the front bucket of a JCB!
It makes a smashing mixer too - it's hard to overpower a flavour this big even in a "very" dark and stormy (sorry Goslings)!
I don't drink Woods all the time these days, I don't think my liver would take it, but I always keep a bottle handy for when nothing else will satisfy.
Save it for when the grown ups come to play, pop your "rum connoisseur" hat in the wash, and just enjoy!

Close to the tot

Spent a long time in the Navy and left just after they stopped the tot. Woods is the only rum that comes close to the tot despite what others claim.

The Best Dark Rum I Ever Had.

I remember drinking Wood's Old Navy Rum where the bottle had a gold label with a picture of some barrels on it. No other rum compares to it in my opinion and won't touch any other rum anymore unless it's Wood's Old Navy Rum. Now the alcohol percentage used to be at 40%, so I'm not sure why it now went up to 57%. Plus, it used to be sold in Canada but now isn't for some reason. So hopefully Canadian officials change their minds and grow a pair to re-allow the sale of this brand in the country. Rum drinkers in Canada are really missing out when there's no Wood's Old Navy Rum around.

Lovely rum superb quality

Absolutely superb tastes very smooth but because it's so smooth you don't notice the alcohol so be aware of the effects
