This was my rum in the 80s and Pussers changed the formula for the USA. I quit drinking the lower proof for years didn’t like it near as well, but started again the last few years. Unfortunately they did the same thing with the 15 last year. This was my first love rum.
If this is the 75% over proof then it doesn't get much better than this. Pour a glass add a good amount of water and sip straight. Beautiful flavours and smooth. Navy rum at it's finest. If you see a bottle, buy it.
Let's just hope that this franchise doesn't fall into a quality destroying/profit obsessed mega corporation like DIAGEO.
This is rum history.
Pussers is up there in my top 10. if I find a rum bar I always hit this rum! For me the original British navy rum! Very nice
The standard "Blue Label" Pussers in the UK is this 54.5% beast.
The best navy rum without a doubt
The smell is very spicy, the alcohol bites you in the nose.
It's sweet, I get burned sugar, caramel, molasses and some ripe banana, also other ripe fruits.
In the background is some earth and a musty demerara note. With dilution it turns more earthy.
The taste starts with sweetness and demerara notes. Added sugar I think.
I get burned sugar and molasses, it turns very spicy. Then some honey and bitter notes.
In the middle I get more of the burned sugar, molasses and some fruits like in Jamaica OFTD. But they are overlapped by the sweetness. Then some honey of demerara rum and the spice.
It's too sweet in my opinion. Also very spicy, but this is not the problem.
I would rate it with 67 points.
