On vacation in the Caribbean, so I’m starting the year drinking local: St. Lucia’s Admiral Rodney makes rum that a whisky snob can enjoy sipping neat. This is the basic HMS Royal Oak expression; if whisky rules applied it would be a 6-year-old. Because rum doesn’t have international rules, it’s called a 12 after the oldest spirit in the blend.
