Many cocktail recipes call for full-flavored dark rum. They are usually dark brown or reddish-brown in color. These rich flavorful rums are frequently matured in barrels longer than gold rums. They may contain extra dark coloring. Navy rums are often a blend of rich dark rums, traditionally from English colonies such as Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica, Bermuda and Barbados.

Lost Spirits Navy Style Rum
- RumXP Award Winner. This dark and robust 136 proof British Navy style expression with deep mahogany color offers aromas of dark ripe fruit with port and chocolate notes up front, followed by burnt marshmallow, over-ripe banana and raspberry, a sweet earthiness over treacle, baking spice and fresh oak. On the palate, this strapping spirit expands boldly with robust complexity while remaining amazing smooth, offering a very long luxurious experience reminiscent of a traditional Jamaican or Guyanese produced British Navy rum. A small sip delivers big mouth feel, offering dark candied fruit, creme brûlée and a balsamic note before a big change on the mid-palate brings tobacco and dry cedar cigar box over fresh oak and vanilla with a suggestion of Bananas Foster dessert before fading very slowly to a rich, warm finish with echoes of toasted almonds.
