Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
This rum is a true masterpiece. Perfect in any points. Price is high and it deserve it. Buy again if I can find other bottles.
For its price a really good rum. Easy to drink. Lots of taste and not too sweet. Am nearing the end of my bottle and you can't buy it in Sweden any more.
Bon rhum, mais moin dans mes cordes. Pour le prix il en a des vraiment meilleur.
Being English and from a port city I really wanted to like this. Quite expensive and hard to find. But... if someone had given me a glass of this I would have guessed it was whisky... Lovely aroma but a harsh whisky , woody taste. I feel guilty but im really going to struggle to drink this bottle.. Will try again later and hope for a different result , maybe with ginger beer ? Bugger.....
Sweet notes of orange marmalade, cinnamon and sugar and finish of fruit and leather.
I love this rum. It has been hard to find in Canada but with good friends state side I get this as a wonderful Christmas gift. A very fine flavour like a true rum should be.
Heavy rum that will surprise your taste. Price higher but I do not regret buying
This is awesome rum if you are in the mood for it. My first experience was not too good but second one revealed all possibilities of this rum.
Aroma has sweet notes a taste includes tones of orange and smokey wood a bit reminds me whiskey. But all that round and smooth and very enjoyable.
Very nice. Reminded me alot of the eldorado and considering it is a blend including Guyana im not surprised. Very smooth with almost no burn to it. I got lots of dark caramel and some fruity almost like you get from sherry. Nice oak and vanilla but not overpowering. There was a hint of baking spices and cinnamon but not too pronouced.
The color is very nice amber with thick legs when you swirl it around.
I tried it in a mind eraser and it was much better than the original style. I wouldn't waste it in other cocktails though it is better striaght up, no need for water or ice but feel free if you prefer.
A beautiful blend, with lots of spices and a strong assertive wood and liquorice finish.
You can actually taste the portion of the blend originating from Demerara Distillers Port Mourant Wooden Pot still, which as been part of every Navy Rum blend from the past 200 years. So in a way this is like a travel back in time in a bottle.
It's price here in Quebec is the drawback. It actually went from approximately 80$CAD a few months ago to now 97,25$. For a few dollars more, I can get the El Dorado 21, which is 100% Guyanese and just overall more flavourful and complex.
Still a must for the serious collectors
Despite it being warming stuff this is surprisingly smooth and can be drunk neat but I prefer with ginger beer.
After I really enjoyed the Blue Label Pusser's I decided to buy one of the 15yo for 35€ on amazon, what was really reasonable and a great price. Normallly this Rum is more in the 45-50€ area. And yes this Rum has everything. Deep, complex smell, heavy long lasting taste. The only questions is, if it is worth to pay the double price of the Blue lable, which is yet great.
En dejlig sød rom med smag af eg.
Den virker helt som en sherry.
En rigtig kraftig mande rom til søen folk.
Loaded with added sugar, which completely masks this rum's true flavors. Big disappointment.
Molasses, wood and iodine on the nose. This carries through to the palate which also has a wonderful acidity present, to leave a really mouth watering drop. The length is persistent if a little medium bodied. Sophisticated, complex and a really good rum. 8½.
Taste:no added sugar,oak,nonsharp,adult
Tail:very moderate,with no alcohol punch
One of the best in my cabinet.The bottle/etiquette could be nicer,but the taste is great.Recommended to drink at 13C.
Based on the reviews on this site ended up buying a bottle and glad I did. Marginally prefer the Zacapa XO but this one gives it a run for it's money given the price point difference. Really good complexity and balance, nice kick, bit of a burn but not overpowering. Straight up all the way with this one!
I am a huge fan of Pusser's, the red label in particular. I bought this one because I hoped it would be a little bit smoother and milder and thus give away some more hints of taste.
However, it doesn't seem to be considerably smoother or milder. The only thing that makes it stand out is the strong fruity/floral taste that isn't that noticeable on the other Pusser's rums.
Har ikke den store erfaring med navy-rom, men den her kan godt blive startskudet til jagten på mere af samme skuffe.
Je n'en attendais pas moins, marqué par l'alambic à repasse en bois, les 15 vrais années, pas de solera à l'espagnol, pur british. Blend jamaique, guyana et trinidad, au nez surprenant, pas de comparaison avec ce que je connais. en bouche, sirupeux, équilibré, doux et vanillé, boisé. Finish un poil court, donc on y retourne. Good sipper, thanks navy
My girlfriend enjoys rums with me and says Pussers is barely drinkable. We think it smells like old socks. My friends who drink much more than I do seem to like it, though. Avoid if possible.
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!
I can't accept that anyone could rate this Rum below an 8. One of the few that I drink straight.
For the price this rum can't be beaten and outclasses many costing more. An aged and mellow taste which is quite sweet with an after-taste of vanilla. Up there with the best.
Le Pusser's 15 est pour moi est une belle représentation du rhum "standard". Il est bien travaillé, il a du corps, un nez très agréable, une finale assez longue. En bouche il est commence sur une note moelleuse et sucré mais l'alcool se fait ensuite rapidement sentir pour virer sur quelque chose de plus viril ! Je trouve ce rhum très bien fait mais je ne sais pas pourquoi il m'ennuie un peu, je le trouve trop classique. Bref je ne pense pas racheter une bouteille quand il sera terminé mais l'avenir nous le dira...
