Gunpowder proof phew ! 56% it's strong can't sip this it's way too strong mixing a single with coke it lasts a while. It's proper dark navy rum at its finest though!
A rum drinking friend brought this over for me to try. He is primarily a mixer and I can see how he might find this rum OK. I drink mine on the rocks and this rum is not OK. First off, I don't care for over proof anything. I don't drink to get drunk, just the nice mellow feeling. 80 proof is plenty to allow for enjoying the drink without a quick drunk. If you want a quick buzz that hits pretty hard this is a candidate. However it's taste is totally not to my liking and it is far from smooth. Surprised so many rate this as high as they do.
Whiskey like rum with a big punch. For the nose it's like a smooth rum but for the gum it comes with a big kick in the balls. Only for sailors. Poured some water in it and it got better. If you got a hairy chest this one is for you.
The taste is same as you would expect, strong and intensive. You feel the alcoholic bite right from the beginning; whole sip of the full-bodied rum is followed by caramel, toffee and sugar. But it is different that you are used from other sweet rums, the 109 proof reminds you that you are drinking strong navy rum and not a Cuban elixir. Its finish is warm and long as you could expect, but it is surprisingly smooth. I believe this is interesting experience to taste such a good quality strong navy rum - one that you can really enjoy.
my full review:
This is powerful stuff. This Rum is strong from nose to mouth to throat. Yet I actually like its potency.It has a unique taste that incorporates a pain and pleasure effect like a good hot sauce . I drank this neat and I will say it did its job. It is not great but very good and a must taste if you enjoy Navy style Rums . It’s Gunpowder monicker is absolutely on point.
I tried this for the first time today (after previously having tried the standard 'Pusser's British Navy Rum'. I can honestly say this was excellent - Rich and spicy with flavors of spices, molasses and caramel - easy over ice or with a mixer.
I was really looking forwards to trying this one.....Whilst the flavour was pleasant, the high alchohol content did not allow me to appreciate it as a sipper. Does not mix well with coke but pleasant with some ginger.
Disappointed, but this is more I suspect down to my palette rather than the rum.
