Recommendable to most
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
I like this rum too, but it is very different from the 40% ABV version Navy Rum and also from the 54% ABV Gunpowder Proof.
This is extremely strong, not meant to be sipped neat for sure. Seriously, don't try it. Or do not say that you have not been warned if you do anyway.
It is woody, astringent, much less sweet than the other Pusser's rums. Notes of spices (nutmeg, cardamom), some heat. A bit of gasoline. If I did not know any better, I would assume some Jamaican rum to be in the mix, as it is very dunder-ish. But that might be the Guyana part, they sometimes achieve something very close.
This fire water is meant for mixing. Or for sipping with a generous ammount (50% or so) of water. I like it for mixing, I like it in Painkiller cocktails. It is brilliant for that. As a sipper, I would still prefer it to many of the sweetened "premium" rums out there. But then preferably with a lot of water and - sacrilege, I know - some ice.
It goes very well mixed with ginger beer or ginger ale. I do personally not drin rum-cola, but I assume that it would also be great for that role, since it is sure to punch through any flavours you throw at it. If you like some flavour in your longdrink, this is a good choice.
The "standard" Navy Rum and the Gunpowder Proof are now all purely Guyana rum. This, on the other hand, is still a mix of Virgin Islands, Trinidad and Guyana rums. And it shows. I have an old bottle of the 42% ABV navy rum, which is similar, but much less potent (and much more sippable).
