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.
Rhum très boisé et au goûter le caramel un peu vanillée, on sent un peu la Jamaïque. Au nez chocolat et cognac. Je m'attendais à mieux mais correct.
Pusser's Blue label 42% Export version I would have to say this is one of the few rums I enjoyed mixing over sipping. Not a great sipper has a strange sipping profile though mildly complex. I also found the synthetic cork to fit inside the bottle too snugly as to where force needed to be used to dislodge it, the first time I opened this rum I a slash of rum on the lap.
I love this rum the 54% is the best in the range it's powerful, full of flavour and keeps you nice and warm in winter!!
The first thing I noticed when sipping was a distinct hint of leather. I could also taste hints of vanilla. It was slightly bitter for my sipping tastes, but excellent for mixing. Works great in the famous Painkiller. Reasonably priced and a cool bottle.
If you are looking for a smooth rum with that strong true rum flavour then this is for you if you need for something more complicated this is not what you want
Revised again: After tasting many more rums and revisiting this, I lowered my rating a notch. Nonetheless, this is a quality rum with a smooth, rich, complex flavor. Probably not a sipper for me but it also holds up well on the rocks or in mixed drinks.
The body, spice and balance of these two things make this rum perfect for cocktails. Enjoy the Painkiller but utilize it for any sea inspired concoction. An easy choice for home or galley bar.
Love the Pusser's Rum, especially in Pain Killers.
I was surprised to find the complexity that I did in this rum. After it decanted for ten minutes I found this to be an exceptional sipper.
Lidt sprittet, burde ha stået et stykke tid inde jeg drak den.
If your looking to drink a nice rum that works in every situation then Pusser's is a good choice.
This rum is a real kick in the pants. Quite strong, it doesn't go down kindly. Really requires mixing.
I bought the 54% pussers and tuned it down with some drops of whater after it struck me in the face purely.
The dillution was healthy and the result is similar to seales 10. A very complex caramel, leather and oaky profile with a hint of vanilla. I like it a lot.
Or anyone who really enjoys a complex naval style blend. Excellent quality rum.
The classic Pusser`s Rum perfect for the Painkiller cocktail and really, it is! a good middle-range rum usable in most mixed drinks and tiki drinks.
I could sip this all day. Worth being on your shelf.
a rum with the body of a whisky....... what else?
A reliable sipper!
had this maui didn't like it then tried it again when i got home i like it now maybe my taste is changing a little bourbon taste tho
Benchmark Island Rum, great color, caramel notes without being sweet, great on the rocks or in a Painkiller
This was my first really good rum. A friend from England introduced me to it as they stopped the "Daily Tot" in the British Navy.
Pusser's the original navy rum. Very rich in flavour. My personal preference is to water it down with a teaspoon full of water just to take the edge off it.
Don't like it with Coke reminds me off captain Morgan yuchh!
Not my favorite, aged nice just has a different flavor profile. Will do in a pinch but not a go to spirit for me.
It's 1/8th pint at sundown whenever I was around Mike, a toast to the Queen . . . who cares if I'm not a Brit?
It cleanses the throat and clears the sinuses and should never be mixed.
