Pusser’s British Navy Rum 15-Year is a blend of five rums from Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados which are produced in mainly wooden pot stills. The blend is aged for 15 years.
The company derives its name from the British Navy 'Purser' who distributed a daily 'tot' of rum ration to each sailor - a tradition which lasted from 1655 until 1970. In 1979 Charles Tobias obtained the rights to blend the original recipe of the British Navy Rum.
Pusser's British Navy Rum is casually known as “Nelson’s Blood” as a nod to the famous death of Admiral Nelson. After being mortally wounded in a naval battle in 1805, Nelson’s body was preserved in a barrel of rum.
Popping the cork you get a very wooded oak smell from it and only the tiniest trace of alcohol in there which a tinge of possibly fruit. In the glass it is much the same and looks much the same. Drinking it straight and neat is like drinking candy sweet on entry, a little bit of heat kicks it, the oak from the barrel trims it out and with some spice in the back and a vanilla finish. Much like the original pussers but more smooth however I Iiked the heat of the regular pussers. In diet coke it's smoothness and balance is its downfall, not many flavours (mostly oak cask) come out so this is much better neat. However it makes a very unusual tasting diet coke that some may love (bitter sweet). Honestly though I prefer the original Pussers blue label for its boldness and it's amazing Rum and coke taste. I say drink the blue plus it's cheaper!
Would give a higher rating if not for the fact it has been sweetened. Still pleasant sipping experience. Not a mixer at all.
It would feel disrespectful to use this as a mixer as it has a beautiful blend of flavours - well earns it place at the top of the Pusser's range!
A good quality rum.
As mentioned in other reviews this rum is sweetened but I like it....a lot.
It is a bit harsh on the nose but the taste is great. The flavours remind me of Ron Millonario xo.
Denne her kræver at ens smagsløg varmes op først. Den smager meget mærkeligt første gang, men blive så bedre og bedre.
Nelson blood es un ron oscuro y potente con sabor que se disfruta mucho más solo.
very interesting rum, very well balanced, a classic navy rum. medium persistance
I bought this a few years ago and loved it. Always have bottle of this lying around. A very very good rum. Rich flavour, great aroma and colour.
Pour a glass, sit back, enjoy. Liquid gold.
It's not my Kirk & Sweeney 23 (rated a 9) but I'm impressed. I was expecting a lot of hype because it's "Navy Rum" but this is actually very, very good. I haven't tasted another rum quite like it before.
On second taste this is my favorite and I've changed it to a 9 instead of an 8.
This is a great rum and u recommend to anyone. The only reason it wasn't a 9 is it is just a bit boozy. It smooths out really nice and is full of flavours.
Great neat, hints of vanilla and spice, lovely long warming aftertaste
Rhum de grande qualite qui commence par des notes de plante et de fumè qui me rappellent un plantation sainte lucie 2003.mais la difference se situe dans la fin de bouche.En effet si le st lucie reste fume du début à la fin celui di passe sur une douceur sucree.il y a des notes caramel beurre salé et le tout est gourmand.la finale est longue.tres bon il ne merite pas un 9 mais c pas loin toutefois.rhum complexe.c est le premier que je goute ds cette marque et c du beau travail pour un 15 ans d age.
Tastfull fullbodied English style navy rum... And the story is as great as the rum
We prefer the Gunpowder Proof, but the 15-year old is right up there.
Dark...smooth warming and morish. Nice complex flavor and lingers
Just opened and loved....
DO NOT MIX!
C'est mon type de rhum, très savoureux, je recommande
From the first sip this Rum grabs you and doesn't want to let go. Not an easy drink but not all that unpleasant either. I wouldn't describe this as an everyday sipping Rum but one for when you want a drink that will make you notice it
Not my favourite, but goood enough. Price is too high for the taste.
...divided by this rum. Had quite high expectations since I had heard it would be a nice rum, but I don't think it delivered. Too much oak and sort of a whiskey taste to it.
Kan zowel puur als met een Cola gedronken worden, zeer aangenaam in beide gevallen
Amazing sipping rum. Usually I would rate this 8, but drunking it immediately after Pampero Aniversario (reserva exclusiva) it displayed a sweetness and flavour I never found in this rum before.
Complex Rum with nice finish. More sweeten and Little less burn then the Blue Label, but still strong. Smell is old and not so good. Strong tobacco. Next time the Blue Label again. More Bang for the Bugs.
Fruity , a bit sweet but still pleasant rum ......
Another beauty of a find ... Worthy of all the awards ...
