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.
Tasty, but not quite great
Pussers has grown in me as probably my favorite sipper on the rocks, reason? it’s delicious and that’s it! I could go on about the slightly funky pot still nose and the smokey Demerara flavor but in the end my taste says it’s a 10! I have tried a LOT up to $100 4square etc, but this in my opinion is better:)
I find it very easy to drink. It reminds me of a chocolate sold in Australia that I have had, on and off for years - Old Jamaica - so sipping it brings back memories. One of my relatives used to drink it when they were in the merchant marine too, so when I saw it on the shelf I thought I'd give it a try. For me it has a fruity, maybe a little medicinal smell. It's not watery but a little liqueur like in consistency with warmth - very nice.
Love this in a Painkiller like they do in St John and Tortola. Have tried others in this cocktail and mothing beats Pussers. A little too harsh for sipping but when you want to kick up a punch or a mai tai this is great rum at a ddcent price point in New England ( 24$ 750ml)
In my circle not a lot of people know about this product but I have seen a lot of positive reviews online so I finally purchased a bottle and gave it a try. Wow! It has a strong taste without being overbearing, one can taste a lot of different spices with an underlying sweetness like brown sugar & a really long finish that is very similar to a lightly spiced cinnamon roll. It really makes you want to come back for more of that finish, My next priority is to try the Pusser's 15yr, if it's any better than this it is truly exceptional. I mostly drink rum neat & rarely mix so that's how I rate them but for all the mixers out there, I think this rum has the strength to mix well but I would be careful what you mix with, the best part of this for me is the finish so I would avoid coke as it seems to me it would kill the finish.
This rum is unbelievably good for its price.
Quite unique taste and aroma. Lighlty reminds whiskey with smoked rags aroma, but taste is lightly sweet with oak notes and fruity longlasting finish.
Has a nice rounded, well- bodied taste that packs a nice punch at the end of a sip. So far, this makes the best Mai Tai I have had mixed with the Zaya rum.
