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.

Tasty, but not quite great

Dark and funky, very good pot stilled mixer. Try it!

I'll give it a 6 for a rum with no sugar added. Add 1 for the tradition. Add 0.5 for the sipping. Round up for an even 8 for a rum worthy of the rum shelf.

This rum saw the light of day when Pusser's looked over its range some years ago. Before the Blue Label was available in a version with ABV 54.5%. This stronger rum was then renamed Gunpowder Proof and the new Blue Label gained a strength of 40%, or 42% in some markets.
The Gunpowder Proof and the new Blue Label was said to be the same blend, but in different ABV.
It has over time been found in various blends initially with rum from Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados. Then with rum from Guyana and Trinidad and finally nowadays it just contains rum from Guyana with distillate from the Port Mourant Double Wooden Pot Still among others.
From aroma via mouth and palate to the rather long finish, it’s possible to recognize Demarera sugar, molasses, caramel, spices and fruits.
Overall it’s quite rich and full-bodied and a very good value for money which goes straight away to my shelf for good everyday rum.

I’ve been waiting for ages for this to become available here in Australia. It was ok to sip but fantastic in a Painkiller cocktail.

I don't know if i just have a bad bottle or what but this is the only rum i have spat out and poured my drink out. Proceed with caution.

This is an excellent choice for mixing a cocktail. I could drink it straight, but it's really not for that. Rum that tastes like rum, it's not grossly sweet.
I think taking away the daily tot marked the end of the British empire. Lord knows I'd be grumpy if they took away my Pusser's.

Didn’t like it neat but loved it with Diet Coke. Taste of dark caramel or toffee. Each time I have a glass, I like it more

As a rookie I am glad I gave this excellent rum a try. For a bit over 20€ I got a sipper I can really enjoy just as it is. The glass smells amazing even in the morning after.
