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

I'm not a big fan of the Pusser's 15, as it's dominated by bourbon and lacking in rum characteristics that I love, so I wasn't sure how I'd like this. The 15 is far better. I realize this rum was probably intended for mixing, but I rate rums by their taste straight. To me, this is no sipper.

Smells of a harsh spice, whiskey, and oak, with just a hint of sugar, vanilla, and toffee. Taste is also harsh; the 42%abv is a bit too much for the flavor. To me, this whiskey flavor doesn't go well with the rum. If my opinion changes I'll update my score, but so far after several tastings, I'm sticking with my original review.

Nothing special here. If you’re making painkillers it’s the beat choice.

As per my title, used to love this stuff but now find it over the top. Best use would be in battle to light up a fire ship. Alcohol is over the top and the whole thing is out of balance. Almost no caramel or molasses, it's hard to say exactly what the flavors are. Still as a punch in the arm mixer I would still recommend. Best in a Zombie if you want not to add the 151.

I had this rum on my honeymoon resort in St Thomas. The bar was offering a tropical mixing class and I was the only one who showed up. What happened next was the stuff of lengends... ok me and the bar tender got blasted drunk. The first rum he had me sample was Pusser's and I was hooked. we mixed Pino Coladas, Mud slides,... and thats all I can remember but it was fun. My wife caught up with me later on the beach talking to two gals in bikinis about the iguanas falling out of the trees and into their pool. So anyway, this is a good rum with a bit of spice and not to dry for a gateway into the more expensive rums. A great value for the money and it will impress your friends without emptying your wallet. Just don't let your bride catch you mixing it up with the ladies.

A punchy flavour, more ‘rummy’ than most. Best with a favourite mixer.

I always assumed that "navy" rum came from the bottom of the barrel but this was closer to the top. Bought it for a friend and tried it with a bit of ice. Good flavour that seemed more natural than forced with additives, not at all harsh, and a lingering finish. So I bought another for myself and continue to enjoy.

On the low end, it's a bit tough to get through sadly.

Its good, but I could not find anythig special to it and there are no arguments for me to future purchase, yet I respect it, with its history and so on..

Final verdict:
Not hitting m cabinet in the future
