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.

Tasty, with a good palate and some sweetness. Good for sipping or mixning...

Good balance of sweetness, favour and strength. Great for sipping.

Sec long et puissant. Bon rapport qualité prix à moins de 40€ en france.

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.

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.

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.

Loved it. Good robust flavour that didn't disappoint but whoa! not long before I was feeling the strength of this one. Now it wasn't that I didn't know it was higher proof, it was more of a slam dunk, I'm drunk kinda result. Small doses from now, especially as I'm a spiced fan with a sweet tooth. I probably pour too much at a time so careful with this one. Yet to try with water but probably a better option to avoid the hit. still I loved the flavour. Fairly warming with a bit of vanilla for me. might try with ginger too but so far not had much to cheer on with that particular combo.

Although stronger I find this slightly smoother than the standard Pusser's - great sipper

Really nice stuff _IF_ you treat it like cask strength scotch. It is a bit strong right out of the barrel, but add say 5% water to it, and it is absolutely amazing.

Velmi dobrý rum. Silný, ale zároveň i jemný. Neřekl bych že má skoro 55% alc. Opravdu velmi dobrý rum. Hlavně pro ty, co chtějí rum, co má koule :-)
