St Lucia Admiral Rodney HMS Princessa
HMS Princessa was originally a Spanish vessel captured by the British in 1780 at the battle of Cape St. Vincent. Captained by Charles Knatchbull with Rear Admiral Francis Samuel Drake abroad, this 70 gun ship of the line was one of the first ships to engage the French in the Battle of the Saints. Fighting valiantly, the Princessa engaged the enemy throughout the battle and inspired us to create this rum which embodies power and integrity. Rum Blend: Admiral Rodney Princessa contains Coffey still rum pulled off lower sections of the still resulting in a robust and complex flavor profile. This rum is aged from 5-9 years in Bourbon and Port casks before being blended together by our Master Blender. Tasting Notes: Deep mahogany color with honeyed raisins on the nose and a hint of vanilla and tobacco. Sweet with intense brown sugar, cre?me brulee tones balanced by dry toasty oak. Complex finish with good oak integration, caramel, and tropical spice.
