Pusser's British Navy rum

Pusser's British Navy

Virgin Islands, British | Aged

The Great British Admiralty first served rum daily to its Royal Navy sailors over 300 years ago until the ration was abolished in 1970. In 1979 Charles Tobias bought the recipe rights, formed Pusser’s Ltd. in the British Virgin Islands, and for the first time made the rum it available for public consumption.

Pusser’s British Navy rum today is the same blend of five West Indian rums as the British Admiralty issued to sailors.

Known as the “single malt of rum” Pusser’s British Navy rum is pot stilled using a similar method as that for single malt scotches, and with no artificial flavors is 100% natural.

Not terrible but not great. Best for making drinks like painkillers.

This is a strong rum with a bold front end that would choke a bourbon lover. I didn’t like it. Might be good for a mixer, but not on rocks or neat.

Fruity funk flavor. While not my cup of tea for a sipper it makes a damn good mixer.

I like this rum, good for price. Product of Guyana. Aroma is pleasant, caramel sweetness. Neat it's smooth, I get an indistinct caramel sweetness with some heat. While you can sip this, it's made for mixing. Very nice with ginger beer, coke. If I have to criticize, I would say lacks a little character to add something additional to the drink. With that said, a nice buy at the price. Enjoy!

Always wanted to try pussers. Passable as a sipper, 84 proof so a tad strong. Rivals Goslings in a d&s

This rum caught me off guard. I purchased it mainly as a mixer, and it works beautifully when you need a characterful rum. That said, it is eminently sippable on the rocks or neat. There's rich butterscotch, raisins, oak, and a bit of banana. Yum!

This was growing on me. Nice introduction to the navy style. Punches above it's weight with a great price-performance ratio.

Absolutely the best bargain dark rum going. If you like this one as much as I do continue your exploration by stepping up to the Gunpowder Proof offering and my personal favorite rum the incomparable Pussers 15.

What real rum tastes like AFAIC.

Typický navy rum, hutný, tmavý, s převládající intenzivní chuti karamelu.

Palate is strong with a heavy molasses base. Toffee, vanilla, raisins, coffee, fruit cake.

Great mixer.
