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.

- A classic dark Navy Rum made in wooden pot stills in Guyana, aged in old Bourbon casks and bottled in Scotland, this rich, black 100 proof rum brings the full flavor of the Demerara region to cocktails and punches. Initial aromas of treacle and molasses are followed by ash, rubber, cherry, almond and spice with a suggestion of chocolate coffee. On the palate, big molasses leads, with dark roasted tea, dark brown burnt sugar, treacle, old wood with a rancio note fading into overripe banana through the warm finish.
