Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
First of all, this smells lovely, it has some interesting flavours, more so than your average standard Navy Rum. I drink my Rums neat, and this one is pleasant enough without being anything to get overly excited about. All in all, good value for money and a very acceptable Rum.
I bought this bottle for curiosity, reading some comments about this rum.
Nice bottle, very low price 28€.. cheap !
The color is light amber more gold, the density in the glass is good, also the mark left on the wall is good, melassa rum need to have it .
From the nose : the first impact is very soft, not big flavor vanish, after wild alcohol grove, more bourbon then rum, at the very end light spicy ... very light.
On the mouth : first the melassa , not too sweet very moderate, second some fruits but really short lasting and after the alcohol with good mark lasting but only few second, the aging in the bourbon barrique left a big aroma but at the end cover the real rum flavor.. good for cocktail not for real degustation
Smooth and warming. Not at all hot. Molasses and caramel, lightly sweet with a long drying finish. Great aftertaste. Lightly numbing on the mouth. Light oak and some fruity character. This is a great sipping rum and for the money it's hard to beat. ($19 in Ohio 5/19) For this price you can use it generously in any cocktail requiring aged rum too. Highly recommended.
I’m sipping this neat more and more. Brown sugar, slightly funky, and alcohol forward.
Something smells rubber tire...
Is this only me ?
Super rum za rozumnu cenu, zmes demerara rumov, sladsi, ovocny, bezpochyby jeden z naj rumov, aky som pil, no a samozrejme cela ta historia za nim. 8+
Аромат насыщенный, сладко-солёный, нотки солёного сала и чеснока, вкус проседает, обожжёный дуб, жжёные сухари и соус терияки, чай пу эр, ощущение что ром выдерживали в бочке из-под Олоросо, но в целом неплохо. 6/10
Absolutely killer rum. A great introduction to the pussers rum series.
This rum has just a strong sharp taste with nothing specific or interesting. It tastes like whiskey (which is a spirit that I dont like to drink much). This rum is just not my kind of taste.
Excellent rum that packs a punch.. Would be a sin to mix with coke so either on the rocks or straight up
... See how long you last straight up
Vůně: tabák, lehce rašelinový, štiplavý dřevěný , ale velmi komplexní
Chuť: rozvíjí se později a našel bych v ní i cestu k whisce
Velmi zajímavý počin a doporučuji ochutnat
Může pomoct s krokem k whiskám
JusT a WONDERFUL rum !!!!....
Great to here that people actually bought the recipe for this historical rum !!!
My 40 bucks were well SPENT ! .....and so, I had to buy another !!!
I like it. It does it's job. No muss, no fusser's. Plus, who can say no to a Painkiller.
This was my first ever drink of real rum on a rum ashore.
Before this it was the likes of lambs.
But like all pussers an amazing rum perfect for toasts
When you Charter a boat in BVI they always give you a bottle of Pusser's. I think it is tough and nasty, just like the British Navy! You can mix it with cola but never try it straight! There are just too many good runs out there!
I discovered Pusser’s dark rum with fresh grapefruit juice a favorite and drink it regularly now at home when entertaining. Forget just mixing white rums with juices, Pusser’s is my preferred rum with fresh juices!
My favorite everyday rum. I know it catches a lot of heat from the rum snobs, but I truly believe that they should give it another go. Yea, it can have a little "bite", but it mellows out after bit.
Can't beat the Pusser story either. Just adds that little extra pizzazz to the experience.
Only got to try this as a rum n coke a couple of times in a pub in North Yorkshire... very nice , need to try without a mixer.
I don't say this as a put-down, but this one was made for rum & coke. Made with three different rums, the Demerara dominates. Raisins for sure, and a slight harshness that somehow complements the sweetness of the coke, and the two marry in wedded bliss. On the rocks with a splash of coke, no lime needed, and you can drink this to the point of comfortable numbness.
I got this bottle from a good friend of mine, he bought it on Free shop at Caribbeans. Not available here and the bottle went so quickly.
Will look for another one beacause this is great stuff. So smooth and drinkable.
Very nice character with this one and mostly mixed with coke n lime.
Not bad for whatever the occasion calls for and not overly expensive to boot.
Not a my favorite sipping rum. Nice flavors but a little to much alcohol bite for just sipping which is my preferred method of consumption
Sipping this rum, there is a noticeable burn at first which mellows out quickly, leaving behind a pleasant woody, fruity essence. Too much alcohol punch for me to recommend as a sipper. But I'm finding that in drinks which call for a dark rum, Pusser's will be tough beat for its local availability, competitive price point, and tastiness. I'm also a sucker for the story behind the brand. I can imagine keeping at least one bottle on hand at all times for making cocktails and punches.
