Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Strong raisins, salty caramel and vanilla
Very strong burnt salted caramel, raisins, butter ,vanilla and slight oak in the end, its little harsh without water added because the high alcohol content, but i still liked it more neat than with water.
It is bit sweet but in no way too much (added sugar?)
Finish: Very long and light oak with the raisins and vanilla lingering a bit.
Overall this is very unique rum that has very different taste compared to generic run of the mill rums. This rum is heavy bodied and very caramelly and strong. I strongly recommend for everyone, especially tiki cocktail lovers are going to have lots of fun with this rum.
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!!
I really love the Pusser's 15 year old. It easily fits my top 10 aged rum list. The Pusser's Gunpowder Proof is another story. It exhibits the very essence of Navy rums, but it simply is too strong to be enjoyed several glasses. One drink it enough since you will get an amazing spice and pepper overload, but you will also get a long aftertaste lingering due to the high alcohol contain. Far cry from the Pusser's 15 year rum, but not a bad Navy strength rum at all. Treat this like any Cask Strength Single Malt whisky, and you will get the point.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Very intense nose with ripe banana, brown sugar and mediterranean herbs. Taste: The initial sweetness turns slowly into a dry and herbal bitterness. Also a medium to long finish with banana taste. High alcohol content, nevertheless, easy to drink.
The color has a little darker shade without being in the dark rum category but the flavor is delicious. Great spice yet fairly smooth with a nice bite at the end and some oak. A good quality strong rum that’s affordable.
Very good as long as you like the bigger kick (due to 54.5 volts it has). Ahoy!!!
A strong rum (at 55%). Not for beginners. Once the strong alcohol burn passed, notes of taste and wood. One of my favorites. Hard to find.
It's fine essence of navy rums, great for punch or grog.
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.
Bought for my dad and my for Christmas, we enjoyed it.
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.
Smoothing inside make me think about wisky.
Something a little tourbe
Quite strong with a Long taste. It has a little taste of honey and caramel.
...but not my style. Pretty rough, sharp and somewhat smoky. Some green wood in the nose, that‘s ok. English style.
The strength of 54% is not the problem - I‘ve had stronger ones being smoother.

Schön schwerer Rum im British-style
Leicht süss, würzig mit etwas Holznote.
I had a really good feeling about the rum when I first smelled the scent of it. The first seconds of the first sip was woody, sweet and strong in alcohol. (I like strong alcohol in rum by the way). But the aftertaste is kinda bitter. That's the hole story.
This particular Pusser's is unexpectedly nice and adds a nice little pop for a sipping rum. It has a strong nose of oak and cinnamon. The first taste is defintely little strong with flavors toffee and vanilla. I think if you add a few drops of water it will bring down the strong alcohol taste and make it even better. Probably too nice for a mixer but might give it a try.
Smoky, raisins, high abv (54.5%), a bit ethanolic in the finish.
You smell raisins and caramell.
First sip a strong alcoholic burn but not too harsh.
Spicy tones of pepper and raisins.
Good Rum with a unique Taste good for Punch.
7 If you like the taste of raisins and pickeled fruits this ist the one to go.
Even on the nose you can smell that this one is really strong with flavours of raisins and caramel. In mouth you again feel flavours of raisins, dark chocolate, molasses and spice.
