“Ingenious Navy Rum you notice the long maturation. In the tasting comparison, most found the Last Consignment better, I personally liked the 40Y due to the even stronger maturation that you notice clearly in comparison better. Less fruity, but woodier, mustier than the Last Consignment. Arr!”

“Fantastic nose, unfortunately, the rum does not quite keep up on the palate. In the mouth, the rum - despite the very present bitterness - unfortunately seems a bit thin. Whether this is due to the proud age or the not quite so high alcohol content is difficult to judge. But I can not get rid of the impression that there was potential for more here.”

“Had a lovely 1975 tasting today so I had to bring some of my gold as well :-) This one has been hyped way too much and the price far from matches the quality. In my opinion this rum has been aged to death.”
