Once you get past the alcoholic kick, there is a lot going on! It has butter, caramel, and a bit of vanilla in the taste. I get a peppery finish but that could be very much aided by the alcohol content. It has a decent beginning, middle, and end! I think this might be much better than the regular Pusser’s!
I was super excited to find this locally, as I've wanted to try it for awhile now. The regular Pussers 3yr was very good, and I had high hopes.
It's soooooo sweet.. the flavor is very strong also. I knew it would be more intense than the regular, but DAMN.
Molasses is extremely present, and the higher proof is obvious after just 1 drink.
I will stick to the regular 3yr I think.
I have a mini sample bottle of this rum. I started with a sniff, took a straight warm taste, took a taste on ice, and then mixed in a can of Pepsi.
I couldn't quite come up with the taste/smell I was experiencing. I was thinking Carmel and Cherry without the fruit flavor which I realize doesn't make sense. The website description says molasses... which could be it. I don't think I could identify molasses.
It's bold and you can taste the alcohol, but it's not sharp. I liked it better cold. With Pepsi, it's distinctive and different but not as good as Mt Gay, Bumbu, or Millonario. For that, I'd give it a 5-6. This is probably for enjoying straight rather than mixing.
This is a very good British "navy" style rum, it drinks nice and smooth with a nice nose of molasses, caramel, vanilla and a mild scent of oak. Typical sweet Guyanese rum with a bit of sugar added. It drinks incredibly smooth for the slightly higher proof. Tastes of strong molasses, toffee, vanilla, slight citrus notes and a touch of oak and char on the finish. Makes a fantastic Painkiller or other related cocktail. Much better than the standard Pusser's, much more character and flavor.
This is the kind of rum I like. Easy on the sweetness and strong on the spice. Good peppery flavor and an even molasses sweetness that is not too strong. For being 109 proof there is little alcohol on the nose and in the sip and mouthfeel. This is a very fun and enjoyable rum but its missing a good body, complexity and aftertaste to make this truly great. May not be a sipper for most, especially if you prefer the sweet rums, but this is a good rum with a lot going for it. Would be an 8 if it had a little more flavors that stood out.
While still retaining the shippable nature of a rum with pleasant rich flavours and being a strong rum makes this a very dangerous drop.
Definately a sipping rum though I wouldn't be giving it to anyone new to rum as the strength may turn them off.
Certainly worth the time to explore this one though.
