Pusser's British Navy rum

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.

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:)

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.

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.

Absolutely killer rum. A great introduction to the pussers rum series.

the heat warms your very soul, the dry sharpness bites the back of your throat as a tear comes to your eye. God save the Queen!

This is a very delicious, full flavored, Guyanese/Demerara/Jamacian type Rum.
Full of the aroma of that style. An ace sipper, It's just so damn "Rummy" tasting.
If you are new to rum, new to this style, or new to not destroying rum by stuffing it in cola, then be patient before trashing it with a low rating. Give it a few times, after reading what it's all about, and you may see the light.
If you like it, try Smith & Cross, or Appleton's for a softer bite. All good.

Zatuchlé hrozinky v lihu. Užasné a razantní pití (a myslím to zcela vážně).

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)

Really nice complexity here, some bitter, some sting, some oak and a nice mix of burnt sugar and caramel. Highly recommended for a conversation starter and a nice sipper.

One of my absolute favorites. Interesting mingling of wood, brown sugar, funk, and a finish that goes on forever.

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

Posted over 5 years ago by Loulander from United States with 2 ratings

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.

If you are heading to the British VI, You need to pay a visit to the Soggy Dollar Bar and have their trademark drink the Pain Killer It is Awesome. Pusser's is a nice rum but so much nicer as a Pain

A piece of history that will always be in my collection.
Ester rich, pungent pot stilled perfection. Stewed fruits, brine and spice.
The bench mark for Navy rum.

I only left a star off because the overproof is really the authentic deal but it's the same rum just with less water added.

If this is the benchmark for "Navy Rum", then sign me up. A little spiciness to kick it into high-gear, with caramel/butterscotch, toffee, and mild hints of orange in there somewhere, Pusser's has character! Very much tolerable straight-up, this is a good drink in just about anything - citrus juices, Coke, Sprite/7-Up, you name it! Pusser's commands respect - it's got mine!

This is only second to Woods, you must drink neat no ice to enjoy the taste

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.

Posted over 7 years ago by LDNShindiggery from United Kingdom with 71 ratings

The original and in my view best Navy rum. Quite a floral nose with tones of leather carry into treacly stewed stone fruits in a long full bodied finish. Awesome in Tiki cocktails. Painkiller and Grog this way please!! :-D

A real good navy rum. If it's the real replica of British Navy old rum ration, sailors were the luckiest ones around the globe. Perfect taste balance between molasses and spices.

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.

I like the color, aroma, and taste of this rum. I use it to make Painkiller (a fantastic drink).
