Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Definitely pour and let it rest. We loved the spicy aroma and lingering finish.
Coppery-brown, intense, caramel-induced color in the glass.
The nose has warm undertones, candied fruits, marmelade, mixed with sulphuric, pungent boozy note.
Can be a bit harsh on the palate, but it develops into an interesting, complex experience. A splash of water helps a lot, opening up a heavier bodied, intense taste with notes of spice, dried fruits, marmelade, toffee, black tea, licquorice, with slightly sweet undertones (the modest dosage added sugar helps to balance the taste rather nicely this time) intertwined with bitter, tart tones from the oak.
It's love or hate rum - I have seen some spit it back into the glass, but those who allow its unique charm to work its magic will usually revisit. Personally, it's one of my favorites.
Not a bad taste, but it will hit you hard.still enjoyable.
A good solid rum
Perfect for gulpers or dippers
For the love of an old sailor
Kupferfarbenes leichtes Mahagoni im Glas.
Im der Nase reichhaltig, schwer und vielschichtig. Herzhaft erdige, vegetabile Düfte aus dem Wald, Holz frisch geschlagen, gesägt, gewachst, vermodert und mit Moos bewachsen. Dunkel gebranntes Karamell gemischt mit Lakritze und mit Vanille verfeinert. Da sind noch die überreifen Früchte und frischgebackenen Brötchen mit Schokostreusel.
Im Gaumen angenehm warm und mundfüllend. Zart-bitteres Karamell zupft an deinen Geschmacksknospen herum und machen sie bereit für die folgenden Aromen. Vanille, Toffee und Lakritze mit einer grossen Ladung Holz angerauscht, Kräuter und Früchte ziehen elegant nach.
Im Abgang schön lang und lecker, etwas Asche, Karamell und Kakao.
Ein toller Guyana Rum für Geniesser und Overproof Liebhaber. Nichts für Süss-Rum-Lovers.
Copper-coloured light mahogany in the glass.
In the nose rich, heavy and complex. Hearty, earthy, vegetarian scents from the forest, wood freshly cut, sawn, waxed, rotten and covered with moss. Dark roasted caramel mixed with liquorice and refined with vanilla. There are also the overripe fruits and freshly baked rolls with chocolate sprinkles.
On the palate pleasantly warm and mouth filling. Delicate bitter caramel plucks your taste buds and makes them ready for the following flavours. Vanilla, toffee and liquorice with a big load of wood inebriated, herbs and fruits follow elegantly.
In the finish nicely long and tasty, some ash, caramel and cocoa.
A great Guyana Rum for connoisseurs and overproof lovers. Nothing for sweet rum lovers.
This overproof is rich in flavour with a sharp overproof taste. Ive enjoyed it on the rocks to keep that crisp warm taste alive. If you enjoy rum- this should be added to your collection as it is mine.
Although stronger I find this slightly smoother than the standard Pusser's - great sipper
I love this rum, especially the strenght (I add a bit of water though) and it comes at an excellent price to make this an every day/evening rum. Much better than the 40% Pussers rum, which I consider a bit weak.
Recently I've become a big fan of Pusser's. I love these dry, full-flavored rums.
I tasted this one side-by-side with the "old" 109-proof offering. I liked this Gunpowder, but I liked the "old 109" better. It had similar flavors, with a much more intense nose, and hints of sherry, with a longer finish. So, I'm not sure, exactly what changed, but I do hope the consider changing back sometime :)
That said, this bottle is fantastic—both for mixing as well as sipping (it's not as high-proof or unapproachable as the marketing might lead you to believe). Highly recommended, but I'm not sure it's enough to sway me away from the lower-proof (but still full-flavored) blue label.
I have a bottle of the 15 yr old and the British Navy and while the 15 yr old wins hands down this is a nice addition. Great for mixing or a sipper. side by side sipping all 3 is nice to get the differences in each.
Tried at Cane Rhum Bar in Charleston SC - this is much more palatable than I thought overproof would be. Looking forward to buying a bottle when I can.
Slam den sparker hårdt.
Kompleks i smagen og masse fylde og aroma
Pusser's 15 Year is in my top 10% and their navy blue label 84 proof British Navy Rum is a staple mixer. I am generally not a fan of overproof rums because the extra alcohol often kills the actual taste. This one does not quite qualify as overproof. In my bourbon days, I would drink Booker's Cask Strength neat with no problem at all, so I can handle strong burns in any spirit.
So based upon many of these reviews warning of the burn for this one, I was a bit apprehensive at first. Shit, it's only 109 proof! I would hate to see what those complainers would do with Wray & Nephew Overproof!
I poured my first sample into the snifter and sipped it neat. It is super smooth and I now rate it as the best of my "Black" rums, even though it has more of a dark brown color. If Myer's Original Dark Rum could be refined and smoothed out for harshness, it would be Pusser's Gunpowder. The added proof is just an extra bonus. Damn, this is some good rum and the story on the back of the bottle only adds to the enjoyment! Yet another gamble on a rum that paid off!
Rum potente ed equilibrato, retrogusto intenso. Indicatissimo per un dopocena
If I'm sailing on the high seas & we need to punch through the approaching storm, this is by far the go to, get the job done, rum period! A must have in the ships stores for any vessel fixing to take on an ocean crossing. This is serious deck mustering grog, straight & forward. A hail of "A Grog for all crew members" & the Captain's guarenteed, all hands on deck! A true Navy Rum. Otherwise, if you want to kick back and sip some rum go to the 15yr old. It never disappoints.
Bought for my dad and my for Christmas, we enjoyed it.
Definitely a rum that would have been enjoyed by navy officers, quite strong and probably wouldn't be enjoyed by people who go for the sweeter rums. I thought it was good, not the best I've tasted but this is a full bodied overproof rum, and it was under $30. Cheers!!
The one and only "Original" British Navy Rum.
If you drink rum you have to have drunk Pussers 54%
300 years of Royal Navy tradition can't be wrong..
Alkohol: 54,5 %
Původ: Britské Panenské ostrovy/Guyana
Aroma: Melasa, karamel, připálené rozinky, z koření tu je znát nejvíc skořice, lehce muškátový oříšek, těžší exotické dřevo, ale občas se mihne i něco ovocného, připomíná pomerančovou marmeládu, je to taková ovocná nakyslost, ale pod tou těžší a výraznou melasově připálenou vůní to je znát jen trochu. Celkový dojem je pro můj nos velmi příjemný, konejšivě hřejivý. (88 b)
Chuť: Připálený karamel, melasa, silná hořká čokoláda, připálená topinka, lékořice, spálené rozinky. V dochuti vysychá, trochu tím připomíná některé sherry whisky. (86 b)
Shrnutí: S nákupem lahve jsem spokojen, tenhle rum se mi líbí, je robustní, přiměřeně silný a poměr cena/výkon taky velmi pěkný, lahev stála 645 korun.
Nice dark amber colour. Nice hint of sweet molasses, bit of Jamaican funk but surprisingly little alcohol fumes.
Full bodied taste of Molasses, spice, cinnamon and perhaps ginger.
Long finish with a bit of oak.
Great taste and great value.
If you think of rum two groups of people come to mind: Pirates and The (British) Navy. This rum celebrates the traditions of the later and delivers a tasty navy rum that was made by the book.
Nose: Licorice, heavy molasses and strangely a slight whiff of myseost
Taste: Rich taste of marmelade, molasses, oak and a slight bitterness in the end to follow the comfortable burn in the end. Long and pleasant aftertaste follows for a while after drinking.
Overall: I don´t have much experience with navy rum and the ones I have tried have felt off. This one delivers on style and taste to the point where I am ready to explore this style some more.
This is extremely smooth for a 109 proof rum. I buy this over the other.
As ex Royal Navy this rum holds almost a mythical status. This is the only rum to comisurate Black Tot day, the original Nelson's blood.
